Lucky you, Chicky, Fergus Garret is the gardener at Great Dixter and very knowledgeable about plants, hope he's interesting. But good luck for today.

Morning all. There have been huge storms in France too. We were on a storm alert, but the storms were further north. Trees down, hailstone damage, powercuts etc.

Waiting for horse foot trimmer for my retired one and my daughter's two, one of hers is retired as well, 26, arthritis. My little mare has shoes so has the farrier.

I did it once, terrifying, I behaved like Panda  But daughter said she was proud of me for having a go.

She has a sweet nature too, but other horses tend to boss her about, she's always lowest in the pecking order.

Ooh, you've been talking about horse when I wasn't there! My other hobby along with gardening.

Me too rosemummy, have always wanted to ride along the beach. 

 

After first OH died my second daughter and I were having a few problems, so I took her on a riding holiday in Dingle in Ireland, we galloped on beaches. Just had to make sure you weren't behind another horse or you got a facefull of wet sand! It was great!

Here is my little girl, a Lusitano 15hh

Been to the dentist today.....why oh why, do they always say 'have a good rinse', while you're lying flat on your back??  

 

David, you are supposed to sit up before rinsing!

Lovely evening, we ate supper outside. Not as muggily hot as yesterday.

Verdun, you mentioned taking a selfie, you haven't taken any photos of your garden for ages, are you intending sending any this year? Please.

Hello Fraxinus, welcome. KEF always forgets me when she says she's the sensible one!

After the cool and cloudy morning the sun came out and it's got pretty warm. I've been planting plants that hadn't sold in my plant sale and potting up others to fill gaps later on. And sideshoot removing, weeding and tying up tomatoes.

Thank you for letting us know. So often people don't, when I really want to know what happened in the end. Clever you to keep the chrysalis safe and see the butterflies. At least Dove and I guessed butterflies!

It's lovely when plants pop up where you weren't expecting them. Pretty poppy.

How are the flooded gardens getting on? Are they plantable? Is the soil still OK? Well done for everything you've done for them.
