HELLO FORKERS!

 Chicklet did brill in her A-levels .   Off to Nottingham Uni in September.  So proud, so relieved (the last few days have been stressful beyond belief), so happy for her ......but I think I might be about to sob uncontrollably

Thanks for looking Runny - pleased to know its still there. Sounds like you had a great day

Loved your pics Pdoc - hope there is still that much colour when I go in September.

Glad Fluffy Madam is ok - hope others aches, pains and btms recover soon.

I'm quite pleased with mine - brightening up a dull patch that had nothing there before.  However, most of mine have popped up as doubles, which gets over the wierd sticky out centre bit.  And on the plus side, the deer haven't touched them, even though they have had a munch at the rudbeckias next door to them.

I used to go to Llandudno on the boat from Liverpool (where my grandparents lived) as a treat every summer.  i remember cable cars and writing my name in white rocks on the side of the Great Orm.  Have a check if its still there will you Runny

Fingers crossed for Mr Yvie, really hope it all goes well. 

glad painting is progressing (although I think I'd rather be at my saltmine).  Bike ride sounds great fun - you'll sleep well tonight.  I love a good long cycle ride, especially with a pub in the middle ......must persuade Mr Chicky to get out there with me soon.

Morning all

Only a few drops of rain here - needed more.  Hope Pdocs garden visits have not needed a brolly though.  We are doing the same trip in September, so will be waiting for his match report with interest.

The bendy ladder talk has confused me too - sounds like something out of a Tom and Jerry cartoon.  We still have a bare patch of plaster in our hallway (7 years on) because we couldn't reach.  I never notice it anymore

And hope Steve's four legged friend starts feeling better soon

Wonderful lawn fairy - makes me want to go lie on it

lilyP - your colours are really beginning to get going now - love that campanula and its frothy companion - is it a thalictrum?

Fidget, your garden is looking exuberant. Love that sort of planting
