I loved Knights in white satin too .....this is what they looked like in my mind .......



No cheesecloth or flares here though - I discovered MB as part of a retro phase at Uni (along with Rumours) ......an antidote to Duran Duran

And not a Brexiteer left standing  outsiders looking in at this shambles must be scratching their heads at the absurdity of it all.  However, not sad to see the back of Ma Leadsom - as an energy minister she has been a complete and utter disaster.  Lets hope Theresa May does us proud.

Morning all


I spy blue sky. But the weatherman tells me not for long.  Quick brekkie, dash to the GH to open the windows (pausing on the way to smile at all my flowers) .........and then time to be up and at 'em


Will be very strange this evening not to have any sport on telly.  Have really enjoyed this Wimbledon


Hope you all have a good start to the week.  Still thinking positive thoughts for pdoc๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™ƒ

Planting in galvanised water troughs or not?

I've got hostas flourishing in one . They love it (drilled drainage holes in the bottom first)


I have never used it for veg - but Monty was growing garlic in one on this week"'s GW, so would think it would be ok.
