We'll be later Steve - but I'll keep an eye out

loved the squirrel story.  If a spray works its easily solved though.  GW last night reminded me that a return trip to Heligan is long overdue - is it on your list for your jollies Dove ?

time for a browse and a cuppa.

Wonderful blue sky Lyn. Really makes that allium sing

Victoria - your borders are beautiful - so full of colour.  I have scabious envy too

Great to have you back Lesley  Glad you had a good time.  Did your ankle recover? hope Mum is ok when you get down to visit, and hope Ma KEF is more settled today too.  As others have said, I hope the chicklets are there to bring me cream buns when needed

I've just noticed too  Great colours  Hard to believe that deep a red can come from a grass.  Love the dark maroon next to it - is that an astilbe ??

Morning all

Yesterday's cricket was amazing, wasn't it Pdoc.  Just love all the pictures of the looks of disbelief on Broad's face.  2 of my uncles were there yesterday, and a 3rd is joining them there today ....they won't forget it for a while.

great win Panda ......good job the bus logistics won't let you spend it all at once .....that means multiple plant buying trips

Missed your anniversary Hosta - hope it was a good one.  Genius wine solution.  Hope you have a lovely time with your daughters, with lots of hugs all round.

Once had an MRI - closed my eyes and thought of a beach - the whooshing is sort of wave like.....i'm sure you'll be fine LilyP

lovely mini-moo - glad all went well.

have a good day one and all

Thank you both.  Frothy is what I am striving for.  The whole garden is on a slope - but luckily south facing, so gets lots of sun.  So most things tend to grow at a slightly tipsy angle

Got my fingers crossed for Brandy here  Go girl

Some heavy downpours late yesterday will have done the garden a world of good.  We might not be having a belter of a summer, but we are not getting much rain here either ....think Scotland is having our share.  This site has made me so much more aware of the different weather we all experience on this little island of ours.  No wonder we Brits spend the whole time discussing it.

Got my Dad staying for the weekend this evening's task is to get a room ready for him.  I know there is a bed in there somewhere, but last time I looked I couldn't see it for general household junk.
