Morning all.

I read that article, Hosta. Great news that Malta is allowing gay marriage, but I think it is a shame to suppress the words "husband and wife". I have a couple of friends who are gay, lesbians. They refer to each other as "my wife". So why can't you have "husband and husband" and "wife and wife"? Just means you are married, not to do with whether you are gay or hetero.

Need to go to the SM this morning so shall go and have a browse in the GC next door. Haven't been for a bit because OH usually comes with me. He loves the SM but gets bored in the GC. He's back from Norfolk tomorrow. I need a decent sized flowering plant to fill in gap where oriental poppy has finished. Also edging shears, if they have any. Only recently arrived in Dordogne. Don't think the French bother with edges. Mine date from 1973 and are not as good as they were.

Great to have you back, Fairy. Lovely photos, as usual.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Edged the upper middle bed with the D tool. Weeded and unwound and pulled up lots of bindweed. Took ages. Bindweed seems to like the heavy rain we've had. Garden Open next Sunday. Will I ever be ready? The rain has battered it all.

Joyce, I'm thinking of you and your OH. I hope you manage to get some sleep. Such a worrying time for you. But, from what you say, it sounds as though OH isn't suffering. Hugs.

Went to look at an Open Garden this morning. Gave me hope, but not motivation. They had been away and it's poured since they got back so lawn was unmown and there were some weeds. But beautiful alstromerias. Nice couple, yummy cake. They said they had some teacups to give DD. They know her.

Been struggling with my garden this afternoon. I think bindweed likes rain! Middle bed finished, all edged. But the rain has blasted flowers off and made plants look a mess. Open Day in a week.

I hope Dove's OH isn't too bruised, sounds painful.

Morning all.
Going to visit a garden in the Open Gardens scheme, then come home to do some gardening. Hope the garden will motivate me!

I use Internet Explorer, it doesn't say that.

My garden is really bashed from the rain. Hope it recovers by Sunday 9th, my Open Day.

Hello all
I'm back from Daughter 2 and they've gone to friends' wedding today. I enjoyed seeing GD in her school play, more of a musical about emotions with singing and dancing. GD was anger, dressed in a red net skirt. She's 7.

July has come in like a damp squib, cool and grey.

I must go and collect my glasses in the village restaurant, left them there on Tuesday, been hunting. They've just rung.
