My photos are always back to front nowadays. Pooh was first with it's name over it then Rozanne with it's name over it. Have a third, Begonia "Dragon's Wing".

Fidgetbones, my OH is the opposite! He's nervous of mowing anything that could be a plant so he often doesn't mow close enough to the borders and the edges get tatty with long grass and overflowing geraniums that could do with a trim.

Freezing corn on the cob.

I put it in boiling water for 2 minutes, then cool it, dry it, freeze in plastic bags.

Morning all.

My email notifications aren't working this morning.

Forecast says sun and 27° for this afternoon, but now it's 16° and cloudy. I have to type up minutes from a meeting last week.

Tummy is a bit not right this morning, hope I haven't caught son's tummy bug. His doc said it's doing the rounds at the moment.

Clearing a garden

KT53, I think that's a bit strong. Some people were a bit shocked, but no one was really unpleasant. I don't think we quite understood about the sort of garden Mr. Toast needs for his family and some of us are retired and think of prettiness which isn't practical for children. Mr. Toast is making a new garden, not covering it all in concrete!

I was one who was a bit worried at first, then I changed my mind and said "I'm afraid I wasn't very encouraging at the beginning because it sounded as though you were destroying a garden, but I must congratulate you on what you have done. You are creating a new garden suitable for your family's needs and you've worked very hard."

Black Spot

My roses often get black spot at the end of the season then grow up beautifully the following year without it - until August September. If roses are well fed and watered they are more resistant to disease.

Evening all. Busy day. Friends came to lunch after church. They admired the garden which gave me a boost. Then at 5.30pm we and a couple of the friends went to a violin and cello concert in a pretty village, Saint Jean de Cole. It was very good. We came home and dealt with all the washing up, then had sweet corn from the garden. Now I'm catching up with emails and stuff on the laptop.
