Wow! Well done Hosta.

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.

Looks like a good success Papi-Jo.


My garden in Dordogne will be open on the 9th July. Have you seen this? https://www.opengardens.eu/

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.

Lucky you, Zenjeff, having rain. 34° here yesterday, 35° forecast for today. I hope I have a garden left for my Open Day!


Yes, Victoria, on the 9th July. But still a lot of weeding to do and all the beds need edging. The lawn is a lost cause in the Dordogne climate. I had a very painful trapped nerve last week, Doc says I have arthritis and I'm overdoing it. X Rays today.
