HELLO FORKERS!

Littlest chicklet safely home - and in surprisingly good spirits . A collection of blisters, but a sense of achievement. It was her bronze OL, and she passed. Not sure silver is really on the cards. She and her friends managed to get the life story out of their assessor - a young guy, who is probably still wondering quite what hit him. So maybe not experts with a compass, but many other skills in their armoury

Got home to a parched garden that seems to have missed the torrential rain, so a busy evening with the hose ....

Just had a phone call to say littlest Chicklet and her group have got hopelessly lost on their expedition - so not to bother trying to come and pick her up til 2 hours later than the alloted time . Good job i am staying close by, so have not already set off . Think ((hugs)) might be needed. .... And possibly ice cream if Bekkie has any going spare

How the Americans see us!

Like Dove - failed when i tried to grow VB from seed, but one bought plant now yields seedlings all over the garden which i transplant back to their alloted spot

Just got in from Mottisfont visit - cut short by the rain, but fab whilst it lasted
So many roses crammed in, with other things interplanted. No attempt at year round interest - go in June, when the rose explosion is happening, or don't bother at all!. Will maybe post a pic tomorrow when normal service is resumed
