Lovely photos everyone. Not sure if I can post any as Internet has been pathetic.


Hurray, it worked! White bush is Exochorda "The Bride".

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

 A happy find,  Hosta.


Have had another 3 hrs with the oval bed. Got out loads of yellow lamium and some sort of tall white persicaria that was supposed to be Persicaria Polymorpha which is supposed to be a well behaved one and stay in a clump. Well it was OK for 6 or 7 years but now it's decided to run riot over the bed and the roots are the devil to get out. Have had to dig out several perennials that were undermined and re-plant them. Also found bindweed that wasn't there before.

Take the longest time and double it then add some on for mistakes like when you screw some on the frame on back to front! Good luck, Wonky.

Hi MU  Don't have iPlayer, not allowed in France but those in the know get it. But we have Catch-up in Norfolk. We are going to the cottage at the end of the month.


That kettle looks very shiny, did you buy a new one or do mystic ones stay shiny?

Morning all, welcome back Runny, missed you.


Sun is shining, sky is blue, gardening today.


Forgot to record GW last night  Forgot to watch Beechgrove on Thursday  Apparently the lovely Chris Beardshaw's legs were on show. Bother, I missed them  I wonder if I'll remember and be awake if it's on tomorrow morning.

Morning all.


OH's choir's concert went well last night, standing ovation. My sandwiches were nearly all eaten, some left for me tonight when OH is singing again in another town.


Was really warm yesterday, in the early 20s, looks like another warm day today. I forgot to shut the GH door and windows when we got back last night but there wasn't a frost.


Forgot to record GW last night and the Evelyn Waugh thing about a school.

Back from Concert. Most of the sandwiches were eaten, just enough left for me tomorrow evening when OH sings in tomorrow's concert, I'm not going. But I am going to their after concert lunch on Sunday, it's usually fun. The concert was really good.


My stairs are wood so I sweep them with a dustpan and brush. But 40 minutes isn’t nearly enough to vacuum this big old farmhouse.


 Been a lovely warm sunny day today, in the early 20s. Lunched outside again.
