Morning  Tennis was fun Have to go and do some proper work today.  Have had a spattering of overnight rain here - although probs not enough to be useful.  About to go and water the greenhouse before I set off -SYL

Hope you are sorted soon Dove - although the neighbours must think you are rehearsing for some sort of AmDram victorian farce.  Happy wall building Lesley love it when a plan comes together

Only a morning working today, as I am off to watch the tennis at Queens.  Was sad to see Nadal exit, i like him and his muscles  Might catch you all later when I am on my train.

Went to Abbey House Gardens in Malmesbury - loved it enough to return for a second visit (and I am a 2 hour drive away)

Love the new look Dove.  wonderful carrots Lizzie - go for the taste prize

......And breathe ..... Exams over.  

have decided the best way to view a meadow is from ground level, with a glass of something cold

 Hope everything went well today Panda

Really great result Woody - glad it was such a success  You all have such lovely gardens to share, and great to make so much for your charites too.  Looking forward to the next one  Today is the day to put your feet up (find another bench) and enjoy 

Today is the last exam in the Chicky household.  Feels like a marathon six weeks.  Fingers crossed and good vibes for one last time - as this one is an important one (its the subject Chicklet wants to study at Uni, so top grades required).  

Great Finland pictures Liri - looks idyllic
