Laptop has let me read back to yesterday morning. I envie anyone with rhododrendrons, the soil here is very alkali, shallow, on limestone. I’ve had 3 in pots, all died. Not enough rainwater in summer to keep them watered.

The forecast has cancelled the rain for the weekend, sun for the next two weeks. Garden is getting dry, shouldn’t moan though.

Thanks Joyce.

Morning all.
Lovely magnolia, Sunny, glad you managed to post the photos.

Slept badly, too hot, coughing. Woke up coughing with bunged up nose. But it's not really bad like in January, except the rib I damaged then is hurting again.

Need to go to the SM, garden is getting away from me, but I'm going to pick up new car tomorrow morning!

Now I'll look back to page before, thought I'd write first in case the site got stuck.

Morning all.

I slept badly, woke up feeling too hot, skin felt sore. Then woke up coughing which woke OH up. Coughing and bunged up nose this morning. Haven't felt right the last few days, thought it was pollen allergy, been taking Boots 1 a day allergy tablets. But I don't feel ill now, not like it was in January and Feb.

SM this morning then gardening. Picking up new car tomorrow

Internet changed it's mind so I've caught up.

Such great news from  3 of you, Wonky, DD and Lily P.

Seems there is good news from DD, I hope so, but Internet won't let me scroll back past 5 or 6 posts and I can't get to the previous page.

Spent most of the day in the GH, hot. Now have 430 babies potted up, including some of my own seedlings. More of my seedlings are nearly ready to pot on, not much room left.
Nighties all.

3 more lovely sunny days, but a little cooler that Sunday, late teens instead of early 20°s.

Morning all.

My plug plants have arrived!  Will spend the morning potting in the GH. Hope it isn't too hot.

L'Enclume looks very haute cuisine. I hope you have a lovely meal, punkdoc. Not sure I'd like raw scallops though.

Morning all.

I hope the funeral goes well doesn't sound the right thing to say, but I expect you know what I mean.

B3, we have been gardening but have to come in for loo and tea breaks.

Ours had a quick heat switch too. I like getting into a cool bed so usually didn't have my side on.
