Huge thunderstorm in the night, poured for hours. First real proper soaking rain since June.

Enough is enough

Oh no, not another thread criticising Gardener's World and Monty. I like the programme and the dogs. Can't please all the people all the time, but hands off GW.


Funny how Verdun's garden is so lush when it never rains in his neck of the woods!

The grandsons love their new pets.


I've spent the afternoon raking the earth for daughter's new huge lawn and picking out stones, then weeding a flower bed full of couch grass and cinquefoil. They moved into their new house this summer. It's lovely, SE of Poitiers a big rambly old stone farm house. Cost the same as our tiny cottage in Norfolk.

Oh, a new month, will repeat my post then from September.


Morning all. I'm off to my daughter's. Three young grandsons, buying them 2 rabbits and a guinea pig for their birthdays.


Huge storms in the night, haven't had rain like that since June.


Thank you all for being so comforting about Tigger. Glad he didn't see the storm, he was terrified of them.

I'm sorry, Lantana. I'm glad you were able to have some time together though.

Thank you everyone, what a lovely lot you are. He was such a special dog to me, he knew I was his human.

Thank you.


I was going to see my daughter this evening but will go tomorrow morning instead. Don't really feel up to the drive. We've just come back from taking him to the vets. My favourite vet came this afternoon to put him to sleep but he had to go on to a sick horse. Tigger will be cremated and we will have the ashes. I have his collar and a lock of fur.

Morning all. Tigger dog was weak yesterday and hardly ate anything, slept most of the day. Nearly 14. Vet coming to assess him this afternoon.

We are going to yet another funeral today, a sweet old lady who used to go to our church. I expect her husband will have to go into a home now. She was his carer. He refused to go back to England as their sons wanted.


Oh dear what a gloomy post!
