Ooh, you've been talking about horse when I wasn't there! My other hobby along with gardening.

Me too rosemummy, have always wanted to ride along the beach. 

 

After first OH died my second daughter and I were having a few problems, so I took her on a riding holiday in Dingle in Ireland, we galloped on beaches. Just had to make sure you weren't behind another horse or you got a facefull of wet sand! It was great!

Here is my little girl, a Lusitano 15hh

Been to the dentist today.....why oh why, do they always say 'have a good rinse', while you're lying flat on your back??  

 

David, you are supposed to sit up before rinsing!

Lovely evening, we ate supper outside. Not as muggily hot as yesterday.

Verdun, you mentioned taking a selfie, you haven't taken any photos of your garden for ages, are you intending sending any this year? Please.

Hello Fraxinus, welcome. KEF always forgets me when she says she's the sensible one!

After the cool and cloudy morning the sun came out and it's got pretty warm. I've been planting plants that hadn't sold in my plant sale and potting up others to fill gaps later on. And sideshoot removing, weeding and tying up tomatoes.

Thank you for letting us know. So often people don't, when I really want to know what happened in the end. Clever you to keep the chrysalis safe and see the butterflies. At least Dove and I guessed butterflies!

It's lovely when plants pop up where you weren't expecting them. Pretty poppy.

Help for flooded gardens

How are the flooded gardens getting on? Are they plantable? Is the soil still OK? Well done for everything you've done for them.

My daughter has a climbing "Generous Gardener", she's very pleased with it.

The forecast storm must have bypassed us, hardly rained at all, although it's cooler this morning. I wanted the garden watered, now I'll have to do it.

Morning all. Which cake looks fantastic?

Was meant to be huge thunderstorm here last night with lots of rain, but just a couple of lightening flashes, a few rumbles and hardly any rain. Would have liked rain, now I'll have to put sprinklers on this evening, metred water.

Farrier has been.

I had one son who loved the shower and one who wasn't keen.

Had the odd rumble of thunder, raining now. Was very still, windy now.

What's the star in your garden right now

Posted: 09/06/2014 at 22:14

My stars are roses, but some are nearly over now. Sweet Williams are making a bright red cheerful patch with blue delphiniums behind them.
