I'm not too young to remember Ena Sharples and Minnie Caldwell. Sometimes I think I remember things  from long ago better than 2 or 3 years ago.


Maybe not a garden, Panda, but what about a Pantomime?

Friends of OH are coming to stay tomorrow night so I've been doing HW all afternoon. OH has helped with the hoovering. I've cleaned the spare bedroom and it's ensuite, washed the stairs (long overdue ), cleaned all the pictures and family photos on the landing, another bathroom and the spare bedroom that grandchildren sleep in (realised I hadn't done it since they last came).


Now about to cook fish, bream, with asparagus. Realise kitchen is very untidy. We sit at the kitchen table with our laptops and loads of papers and discarded items of clothing that never seem to get put away. Well, this year you never know if you are going to need and extra pullover or fleece. Not that warm at the moment.

What is your weather like?

16°, cloudy in Dordogne. Recently England has been warmer than here, but here is a place people come to for the sun. Not that I mind, I don't like it too hot.

That sounds a great day Flowers.


Liri, how exciting, going to Chelsea, you lucky thing. Please post photos.


I was rather regretting not watching Marcella, but after reading what you've all said, I think I'm glad I didn't.


I have found "The Secret" gripping.

Yesterday I weeded the strawberry bed, planted 6 new plants, fed and mulched them. There is a bindweed problem.

Have planted some rudbeckia Denver Daisy and Lavatera Silver Cup in cutting garden. Planted Curly Kale in veg garden. Planted up 1 trough and 3 pots with summer bedding. Plants used, pink pelargoniums with blue ageratum, Salvia Farinacea with Didiscus, pink Diascia and trailing Lobelia, Salvia Farinacea with pink and dark pink eye pelargoniums, crimson million bells, Night Sky petunias and trailing Lobelia.

Also noticed on the laptop that the camera icon is too far right aligned and half of it is missing.  I wouldn't know what the button was if I didn't usually use Iphone / Ipad.


See original post

 Now I know why the camera icon doesn't look like a camera!
