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.

What's happened? All I've got are little black squares with white crosses on them.

Obelixx, you asked about my scans. They weren't scans, they were X rays, this is what I posted "Went for X Rays this afternoon. Arthritis in right knee and bottom 3 vertebrae. A pinched something in hip, but need to see Doc for translation, all in French medical speak." I will see the Doc early next week, but it was just a pinched nerve, ouch, and arthritis.

Getting exciting DD. Let us know when you are open and we'll come for tea. If you want some perennials in autumn or spring I could split some for you.

Haven't read back yet, page keeps sticking.

What I would have said earlier if site had let me type - A tree had fallen on the fence in the top paddock - yet again! Had to replace a load of white electric ribbon and OH banged in a fence post. Horses now grazing there. I was surprised to see water in the pond after all this heat.

I looked at my emails at lunch time and I'd had one to say a French friend had died on the 21st and his funeral was at 3pm in the Cathedral. When you die in France they like you to be buried in 3 days. So we went. He was only 66. I didn't know his cancer was only diagnosed 4 months ago. I last saw him in April. It was a 2 hour Catholic Mass and lots of people were there.

When we got back everything needed watering and dinner needed cooking and eating. But it's been much cooler today, so more comfortable.

Now to read back.
