Thank you everyone for the congratulations.

Good to see you Hazel and Runnybeak.

Hope you feel better soon Pat. Glad you are "signed off", Dove.

Have been to Aubeterre, 1h30 drive away, to see a French bi-lingual tax advisor. She was nice and very efficient. I have been making a muddle of my tax returns, she will do them in future for a very reasonable fee.

We had lunch in Aubeterre in a village restaurant with a covered terrace. There were several heavy showers. On the way home the rain was torrential, the water had lifted a manhole cover up in middle of a village we drive through and a country lane was like driving in a river. But there has been hardly any rain at home. I hope the garden gets watered.

This thread was in 2014 and some forum members have left so some answers are missing. Jaybee said "Thanks for reassurance David". David was a member who left and his posts were deleted.

Cloudy today and much cooler, thank goodness, 24°. Had the odd shower, but not the forecast storms.

Daydaisy, if only it were only 16° here more often at night! It was 28° in our bedroom last night with the windows open. SW France.

Much Wenlock is a lovely village. We had a happy holiday in Shropshire 3 years ago.

Evening all.

The Open Day was a success, 57 people, not counting helpers, think that is the most we've had. Only 3 French but they were very nice and one couple had come from over an hour away. All the homemade cake went, just 3 slices of a bought one someone donated left. People were very complimentary. The day was cloudy, cooler at 24°, a couple of mild showers. Just right for me.
We've been out gathering up the signs on the road that OH had put out this morning at some un Godly hour when I was asleep.

Poldark tonight

Hello Dachalover.

Des that Spirea have golden leaves when it first comes out, then they get greener as it flowers? I have one like that, called "Goldflame".

The petunia on the right is younger than the petunia on the left.

Morning all.

What huge eyes Ed has!

Cooler and cloudy with a breeze. I shall make a cake or two, I have a chocolate cake, a fruit cake and something else in the freezer. One will be orange with grated courgette in it. Trouble is, you don't know how many people will turn up and now rain is forecast.

Also need to do some rose dead heading. Shan't dead head Paul's Scarlet because she has lovely orangey hips, but she's looking a bit untidy at the moment.

Hope DD has a good day.
