What is your weather like?

How hot do people call hot in the UK? Shade temperatures I mean.


It is 25° here in Dordogne now. What I call a nice summer's day - at last, it's been so wet here. I've been gardening. How hot is too hot for your liking? Here, I don't like it over 30°.

I use Internet Explorer, works well for me. When I tried to change to Google Chrome it said it wanted me to change my email address to a gmail one, but I didn't want to so I didn't change.

Morning all.


My daughter (first of 4, 2 of each) is 40 and I'm still 27.


My garden is starting to recover after all that rain. Just took a few photos. It rained a little in the night but not heavily. A gardening day today, if the rain keeps off.

Hello Tootles. I took the beans out of the pods and simmered them for 5 minutes, drained them, added knob of butter. They were about 1/2" long, you can eat them bigger, but I like them young and tender.

Lilysilly, Lou said it has a nice honey scent.


Have planted up all my pots now. Just need to plant annuals in the tulip gaps in the beds then any left over plants will go to the plant sale at my Strawberry Tea.


Ate our first broad beans tonight.

Well done Liri.


Been warm today, could have worn a summer dress, but I've been wearing gardening jeans.


The electrician came and found a burnt phone wire, so he won't need to replace the lot, he's replaced that bit of wire and there will be some other bits and pieces eg sockets to change. The kitchen phone works


Have finished planting my pots.

Back from the Memorial Service. Our friends had a summer home in Dordogne. Thank you Obelixx, Lily and Liri.


Hope to garden this afternoon. Electrician should be coming soon to do an estimate for repairing our phone points that were damaged in a storm.
