Wouldn't you have to be ever so tidy to have a robot vacuum cleaner?

My favourite make for cylinder vacuums is Rowenta, but I've heard Miele are good - expensive though.

Too hot outside, suppose I should have been doing HW but I've been reading and looking things up on my laptop.

Of course it is, Philippa! The pokeweed, just couldn't remember that word  Never use that smiley but looks as if it's wearing a Dunce's hat. What is it for? Has it got a cold nose or is it fibbing like Pinocchio?

Looks great pp. What have you done with your slugs and snails? Perfect Hosta. I always cut my mallows right down in the spring, they grow back.

It's getting very hot for gardening here, but yesterday I did some weeding in the upper middle bed when it was in the shade when the sun went behind a tree. Mostly the gardening is watering and deadheading.

Verdun, your garden is looking gorgeous. Have you got a new camera? Clearest photos I've seen from you. We have hot weather and we had a wet spring but it makes my plants grow tall and fall over. Still haven't got to grips properly with staking.

Yours looks lovely, Chicky, beautiful loose feel to it.

No one would have known you are a novice, Mortuus, if you hadn't said so!

No wonder I couldn't guess it, although I have seen them in England. Impossible to grow in SW France. Daughter No 1 bought me one once and it promptly died when it felt the sun, although it was in the shade a lot of the day.

My corn on the cob forks are made of wood.
