Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Posted: 23/06/2017 at 22:23

Haven't read back yet, page keeps sticking.

What I would have said earlier if site had let me type - A tree had fallen on the fence in the top paddock - yet again! Had to replace a load of white electric ribbon and OH banged in a fence post. Horses now grazing there. I was surprised to see water in the pond after all this heat.

I looked at my emails at lunch time and I'd had one to say a French friend had died on the 21st and his funeral was at 3pm in the Cathedral. When you die in France they like you to be buried in 3 days. So we went. He was only 66. I didn't know his cancer was only diagnosed 4 months ago. I last saw him in April. It was a 2 hour Catholic Mass and lots of people were there.

When we got back everything needed watering and dinner needed cooking and eating. But it's been much cooler today, so more comfortable.

Now to read back.

Morning all.

My sister and OH's great niece are going to Glastonbury as helpers. Sister runs a lost children tent.

Much cooler this morning. Was 18° at 8.30am and cloudy. Shall go and inspect the horses' paddock and probably move them into the next one when I've checked the electric fences.

Wish I'd seen about Gardener's World being on tonight earlier. Managed to record half of it. I'll have to look for a repeat.

Internet has been a pain in the neck today.

Have picked more raspberries and broad beans and given raspberries to a friend who has given me eggs in return.

Went for X Rays this afternoon. Arthritis in right knee and bottom 3 vertebrae. A pinched something in hip, but need to see Doc for translation, all in French medical speak.

Been 34°, 30° in bedroom now, have opened the windows and put a fan in there now the temp has dropped a bit.

Lovely, Papi Jo, no wonder your open garden was a success. Thank you for your message on the Garden Visits thread.

I bought some apricot digitalis, which I was told were perennial. They had quite narrow leaves. Not only did they not flower last year, they died in the winter. It was -11°.

Morning all. It will be another scorcher here. I wish it would rain.

Going for X Rays of knee, hip and spine this afternoon. The agony of the trapped nerve has gone, but I have back ache.

Must go and pick raspberries before it gets too hot. Surprised there is such a good crop in this heat.
