Oooo Panda - they are looking great. You have obviously tended them very well. I am feeling a rush of maternal pride

GWRS - whopping sunflowers too - always make me smile

Figs galore

We have a newish tree that is producing fruit for the first time - but like sybille's they are hard and green - is it too late for them to ripen this year?

Talking of driving tests ........where are you Winter???  We miss you

Well done Wonky . Not sure I could pass the theory test these days - I was rubbish at the hazard perception videos when Chicklet was practising for hers.

Good luck Panda - nerve wracking stuff.....let them see the real, wonderful you

Clari - the hours you are asked to work sound more and more ridiculous.  Is it a silly question to ask whether you are still enjoying it

One more day til the weekend.  Waving Chicklet, her rucksack and her tent off for a weekend at Reading Festival ......rather her than me.  I will have the washing machine on red alert waiting for her return on Monday

Gorgeous ......keep going Kathy. We have very high boredom thresholds for anything garden related on here.

particularly like pictures 4 and 5 they have names?

Just googled GWRS, and must say I am none the wiser - do they parade, or just hang out together?? Let us know how the day unfolds

have woken up to more rain (thought yesterday's was meant to be the last of it, but obviously the  weather makers had other plans).  In the end, the prospect of a full week at work overwhelmed me, and I have taken the day off to go "uni" shopping with Chicklet.  This involves a trip to the yellow and blue store, plus no doubt some essential clothes shops.  We're making a day of it, with littlest chicklet coming too.

Glad you had a good time with your cousins Dove, that Wonky's cold is kept at bay with the coffee, that lemon drizzle cake goes down well, that Hosta has a good trip home to the motherland, and that Clari's funds eventually appear .....
