BL - when do you think you might be in Suffolk? Perhaps we could make it a TWIGS outing as our intended visit to BC's in August had to be cancelled due to bad weather?

 

We haven't planned it yet, apart from July and Suffolk, maybe up to Diss as well, well, East Anglia. We'll have the car. But it would be lovely if it were a TWIGS outing.

How horrid for you, Runnybeak. Hope it recovers soon.

Dove, we are hoping to go to Suffolk in July and one thing we would like to do is visit Betto Chatto's garden. You said you'd like to go ???

Morning all.

Just off to post letters and take rubbish to the bins. No collection here. Nothing exciting planned.

Spent 2 hours ironing this afternoon, but watched Escape to the Country while I did it. Watched some of Countryfile while we ate in the sitting room, then Strictly, Antiques, and Downton. Feel quite muzzy, hope eyes don't go square. Haven't watched much TV during the summer.

Salvia "Wendy's wish" has been out for a bit and geranium "Rozanne" hasn't stopped all summer.

We thought that as it wasn't actually raining and the forecast is rain, that we'd lunch outside. I was cold although I wore a fleece. It's 13°. What a change! I was sleeveless yesterday.

So sorry hear your news Stacey, keep fighting and you'll get through it and be gardening in the spring. We are all behind you.

Good to have you back KEF. Did you have a lovely time?

It rained quite a bit in the night but the garden was very dry, so that's good.

Yesterday I started doing something I've been meaning to do for 2 years, but we didn't have any gravel. Now that we've been to get some with OH's little trailer I've been able to start sorting around his shed. I am making a neat (I hope) narrow gravel border around it so he can mow up to it neatly. I removed half a barrow of soil, put down a fabric membrane and then the gravel, mixed with anti-cat granules (probably won't work).

The earth I mixed with compost and rotted manure and planted my Rosa Complicata from David Austin that I bought in June in a large pot. No room in the borders. Impulse buy!

Missed Strictly Went to see OH sing in a concert and he said he would record it and he forgot. I haven't mastered the complicated machine yet.
