Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Thank you all for your sympathy. Felt a bit low so we went to wander round Sarlat this afternoon. Being Sunday and not yet tourist season it was pretty quiet and most of the shops were shut. It's heaving in July and August. But there was a shop selling pretty silver earrings and OH bought me a pair.

Sad today, another friend has died, cancer again. She was an English friend who has a house here that they were hoping to retire to, but was being treated in England. We went to see her the end of April on our way to Norfolk. She was my age.

It's on a slope so it's terraced with limestone retaining walls.

Morning all.

We went to bed earlier than usual and the fireworks from the village fete woke me up at quarter to midnight. Could see the high ones over the trees.

Good luck with your Open Garden. Mine is open on 9th July. Your garden is looking lovely. Glad you were able to post photos, some people have had trouble this weekend.

Here is my garden, in case you would like a look. May last year.

I like Status Quo, shame front man is ill.

It's our village fête this weekend. Didn't fancy petonque this afternoon or the meal this evening, always rather chewy and fatty. Will be fire works this evening but not until about 11pm.

Have weeded the oval bed and half the upper trellis bed. Have just finished eating outside under the pergola. Sole with broad beans and the first courgette from the garden followed by garden raspberries.

Thank goodness the heatwave is over, fed up with 34°, can't sleep when it's 30° in the bedroom. Yesterday was cloudy and today is sunny with a nice little breeze.

Have a good day out Obelixx, sounds as though there is lots to do near you.

I am mobile, thank you. The trapped nerve untrapped itself. Have been weeding but the phone kept ringing this morning so a bit of a late start. Sunny but not so hot, nice cool breeze.
