Morning All

Friday has arrived

I had a clear out of unwanted plants last weekend too (although not on Hosta's scale) ....funny how the need to water pots can concentrate the mind

Have a good day peeps, the weekend is nearly hereπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰

Done an hour's work, a half hours watering and now about to set off for the office.  They say no peace for the wicked ......I must have been very bad

Just googled Wightwick Manor .....looks lovely  Hope you take some pics for us.  My Mum helped out a lot when the chicklets were little - she was the best Mum in the world, and the Chicklets had a very close bond with her as a result.  Enjoy your last day with them before the hols.

Slept with all our windows wide open, and it was actually ok.  About to go open all the GH vents - the tomatoes are loving this weather

Have a good day one and all

Used to use a Crabtree and Evelyn gardeners cleanser - but they stopped making it.  Will definitely try the occitane version - thanks Yvie

Think I might have to sleep downstairs.  Just done another round of watering (no rain forecast here yet) - most things are coping ok.  Seems like another scorcher tomorrow .....we certainly don't do weather by half these days.

Spent a couple of nights in Namur a couple of years ago, on the way to a holiday in Austria.  Lovely town....lucky Possum

Come back soon Runny.

How very sad Lizzie

Just been out for a mammoth watering session, to try and get my potted babies through the day.

Now off to the dentist, followed by work.

Busy, busy, busy

Just catching up.  So very sorry that David K has gone.  A very knowledgeable gardener and photographer.  A great loss to the site.  Not sure if "the powers that be" have yet made the connection that it is people like David who make people keep logging in to this site, because they know they will always find good, reliable advice from experts like him.  And whilst they are getting that advice, they read the adverts.  Which is where the money is made.

Seems very short sighted to deal with people in such a high handed way that they feel they have to leave ....... And thus leave the forum poorer as a result.  Madness.

Morning all

Wot are the plans for the sunny corner Dove - do share. Love a bit of garden planning 

Chicklet returns from Berlin today, so somewhere in the middle of my working day I have to fit in a quick trip to Gatwick.....but it will be good to have her home

Hope this hot spell puts the brakes on our plague of slugs ....I've taken to after-dark patrols, and its upwards of 30 a night so far

Enjoy the sunshine folks
