Morning all.

My daughter (first of 4, 2 of each) is 40 and I'm still 27.

My garden is starting to recover after all that rain. Just took a few photos. It rained a little in the night but not heavily. A gardening day today, if the rain keeps off.

Hello Tootles. I took the beans out of the pods and simmered them for 5 minutes, drained them, added knob of butter. They were about 1/2" long, you can eat them bigger, but I like them young and tender.

Lilysilly, Lou said it has a nice honey scent.

Have planted up all my pots now. Just need to plant annuals in the tulip gaps in the beds then any left over plants will go to the plant sale at my Strawberry Tea.

Ate our first broad beans tonight.

Well done Liri.

Been warm today, could have worn a summer dress, but I've been wearing gardening jeans.

The electrician came and found a burnt phone wire, so he won't need to replace the lot, he's replaced that bit of wire and there will be some other bits and pieces eg sockets to change. The kitchen phone works

Have finished planting my pots.

Back from the Memorial Service. Our friends had a summer home in Dordogne. Thank you Obelixx, Lily and Liri.

Hope to garden this afternoon. Electrician should be coming soon to do an estimate for repairing our phone points that were damaged in a storm.

Morning all.

Looks like being a lovely day today, but storms are forecast for tomorrow, starting tonight. This weekend, when I do my charity Strawberry Tea on Saturday and DD opens her garden on Sunday, the forecast is stormy with heavy showers. Bother it. A week ago the forecast was good.

I'm going to a memorial service this morning, the same time that our lovely elderly friends, who died in a car accident, will be having their funeral in England.

What is your weather like?

We had a much better day in SW France. Started cool and grey but by end of morning the sun came out and it got up to 21°. Wonder if it's the end of the rain?

2 x ID please

Yes, I have it. Very pretty but a bit of a thug when it gets going. I dig lots out every year.
