Morning all. Nice day so far.

RB, I hate having hairdressers messing with my hair and I've never had my nails done, would be a waste of money.

Going to tidy up the kitchen terrace, has flower borders in it and shrubs. Then going to daughter's this afternoon, near Poitiers. Her birthday is on Monday.

Ivy Goldheart is pretty and not as horribly vigorous as ordinary ivy. I have it on the garage in shade.
