Morning all

Fine here now - we had our months quota of rain on Thursday night/Friday morning.

Driving to Nottingham later to take Chicklet back to Uni.  Its been lovely having her back home for the whole summer.  This year she is in a house, rented with 6 friends - only seen it from the outside, so look forward to helping her get settled in a new room.  Going up this pm and driving back tomorrow - so the garden will just have to survive without me for another weekend.  Looking quite good out there though.....lots of yellow and purpleπŸŒΌβ˜‚πŸŒΌβ˜‚πŸŒ»

Why not take advantage of doc's holiday Pat, and go and get a second opinion from whoever is standing in?

Have fun with the guitaring Wonky🎼🎸🎼's the gardening job going?

Rosy Hardy talk was excellent last night - always lovely to hear from someone who is passionate about what they do🌺🌸🌼🌻🌾

Glad to hear KEF is ok - hope she pops back in soon.  And Panda, if wedding prep allows.

Another week and it'll be too dark to pick raspberries in the morning Getting a bit challenging even now

Littlest Chicklet is back at college now, so my mornings are back to a regimented timetable as the train won't wait for herπŸš‚πŸš‚πŸš‚

Garden talk tonight - Rosy Hardy ......looking forward to it very muchly

Back home now from a truly wonderful trip Can't resist one last postcard, of the most bonkers church I have ever seen, and its interior, which had every inch covered in mosaics

Trip home was good - always seems very strange that you can spend a morning running round foreign streets and climbing cathdral steps (worth it for the view) and still be home in time to water the GH before the sun goes down.

And now ......gotta go to work

Have only done a skimread catch up - Big hugs for those who need them (())

Greetings from Russia  Trip has started well

Have just taught myself thankyou and goodbye ......decided that, and liberal application of cheery smiles, should just about cover it

Morning peeps

Just been raspberry picking .....feels pretty warm out there

Littlest Chicklet presented me with a list of Uni open days she would like to go to last night. MrC is going to have to do the honours for a couple, as I am already booked for things.....but seems like every Saturday in October and November will see "Chicks on Tour" .......might keep a tally of miles travelled just for the lols

Is anyone else planning their spring tulip displays yet?

I've used SR collections twice.  First was the venetian one and it was lovely, but didn't really fit in with the other things that were flowering about the same time. Then tried vintage silk last year - disappointing as they all flowered in succession, so didn't really ever get the full effect.  Back to diy this year I think
