Looks like a good success Papi-Jo.

My garden in Dordogne will be open on the 9th July. Have you seen this? https://www.opengardens.eu/ 

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

I bought some apricot digitalis, which I was told were perennial. They had quite narrow leaves. Not only did they not flower last year, they died in the winter. It was -11°.

Morning all. It will be another scorcher here. I wish it would rain.

Going for X Rays of knee, hip and spine this afternoon. The agony of the trapped nerve has gone, but I have back ache.

Must go and pick raspberries before it gets too hot. Surprised there is such a good crop in this heat.

Lucky you, Zenjeff, having rain. 34° here yesterday, 35° forecast for today. I hope I have a garden left for my Open Day!

Yes, Victoria, on the 9th July. But still a lot of weeding to do and all the beds need edging. The lawn is a lost cause in the Dordogne climate. I had a very painful trapped nerve last week, Doc says I have arthritis and I'm overdoing it. X Rays today.

Those cakes are so beautiful, you are very talented.

I made cakes for each of my four children's weddings, but they look amateurish compared with yours. Yours are amazing. You could make a career of it.

Site hasn't wanted to give me a window to post on. Maybe it's too hot! 34° here so not as hot as chez Obelixx.

Dove said "Wonky was born in April '76". My first daughter was born in March 76.
Leg has been much better today, but I did take a strong painkiller. But back aches a bit.

OH is home  Having seabass for supper, when I get around to dealing with it.

Went to the SM this morning for supplies, but been taking it easy.

Glad to read that Joyce's OH is home but sad to read about Lily P's eye. It can't be the euphorbia though, must be a secondary infection.

Thank you Joyce, I hope so. I hope you sleep well too. You are being such a brave and loving wife to your OH.
