Visited a garden after church, lots of roses but in a charming unkempt sort of way. Then went to DD's garden. Arrived a bit before 2pm. They were just sitting down for lunch so invited us. An hour later quite a few people arrived to look at her garden. It isn't a very nice day 13° and drizzly. Her garden is looking pretty though and her rockery and white bed have really developed and grown.

Home now then soon going to see another garden and stay for birthday party. He's our area organiser.

We are eating lettuces and broad beans from the garden.

Had lots of strawberries today, but not home grown, Strawberry Tea ones.

Evening all. Phew, Strawberry Tea over and most of the stuff is put away. It didn't rain! Sun actually made an appearance! DD and her friends came, think we were about 44 people. I had a good set of helpers.

Tomorrow we will be going to see DD's garden, then another friend and staying on for his birthday party.

Welcome back Dove. Glad you had a good time. I hope you have a good Cotswold holiday, Topbird. I loved Hidcote.

Raining, so we went to the cheap Chinese place for lunch after shopping. Now I feel like a snooze. Shall go and watch Escape to the Country.

Yes Lantana, my overgrown puddle was my pond. Actually I'm a bit nervous of creepy crawly things that might live in ponds.

Being the owner of a tummy that I wish was flatter, I find small lacy underwear sits nicely underneath it.

Morning all.

What a lovely idea PP, to write to them.

Shopping for the Strawberry Tea this morning.

DD has lost quite a bit of weight since I first met her, unlike me! She isn't 27 yet though.
