I have a couple of white ones like that too - one is Danielle and one is David. I have lots of other colours too - they keep everthing very colourful in July and August - love them. And pretty easy too - slugs ignore them and once you've given them a bit of a weed in spring they pretty much look after themselves
FiL move went well from an organisational PoV, but think it will take longer for him to adjust to the change on an emotional and mental front. He loves to worry, and has a whole new list of potentials. But the flat is a new build, and apparently is lovely, and problems will be dealt with by the building manager.....so hopefully that will help him settle. My Dad is ok now, thanks Joyce - still hobbling, because although his broken foot mended, the relative inactivity has given him swollen legs that the docs are now trying to get control of ....but in good spirits nonetheless.
Littlest chicklet is heading off this morning with her rucksack, tent and wellies for a weekend at Reading festival ......cue worrying mother.....I'm sure she will have a wonderful time
Have a great day, whatever youse are up to .....and welcome to Blighty Lizzie
Big day for FiL today - he is moving in to a retirement flat. Absolutely the right thing to do, but shutting the door on a house you have lived in for 60 years will be tough. Mr C hasbeen down there helping out with boxes and sorting and generally calmingthe nerves.
Thunder and rain overnight has left us damp and muggy here, rather than refreshed. But at least it watered the pots for me.
Hope stings have stopped smarting, hogs have been visiting again, paint has dried to an acceptable colour, clooties have been scoffed and sunbathing continued away from prying eyes
Great to hear from you DD - glad things are working out nicely. Will be good when you know longer have to worry about the B&B - that day must be coming soon, right?
Happy birthday to Fairylet for yesterday .....any cake left?
And happy anniversaries to Lesley and Ob .....thats an impressive number of years you've clocked up between you
Enjoying my first crop of Autumn raspberries on this morning's porridge .....yum yum yum
Escaped from my desk for a glorious hour in the sun ..... Not a cloud to be seen ......bliss
Favourite moments for me were Andy Murrays win (oh the tension) and Max Whitlocks golds .....just so unexpected. But loved it all really
Morning Daisy. Bit early for football - although at least it was the real thing and not a computergame. Won't be long before they're back at school
Shaping up to be a lovely day ....just been to open up the GH and my very first tomato is going red. At this rate I might even get a ripe one by September
Enjoy the sunshine peeps
Huge cuppa tea sounds very welcome Clari - yes please
Rainy night should have set the garden up well for the fine weather this week. Shame I will be stuck in an office
Decided lots of things were in the wrong place during my weeding session yesterday, so now have a list of moves to make come the autumn. The search for PPPs (perfect planting places) continues
Thanks for the warning Joyce - will add skin-so-soft to my packing list
Got up for Mo and the relay too. Magic stuff
Not looking too promising out there at the moment, but not raining or windy any more so will be heading out later to weed round some newly planted hydrangeas - they are doing well, but will do even better if their surroundings are cleaned up a bit.
Got our Russian visas successfully (wot a palaver that was), so all set for our long weekend in St Petersburg next month.......so excited
