I'll be here Dove .....but like Pdoc, I won't bother going to bed first ....there's javelin and long jump to keep me entertained in the meantime.

But don't expect me on here any time tomorrow morning πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

I seem to have been glued to the sofa since 3pm

Loved the rowing, loved the tennis and looking forward to cycling and a late night tonight

On the 2012 flowers .....not sustainable, I agree, but they did attempt to recycle.  I bought one of the rose bushes, and it continues to reward (as a cut flower plant, not a garden worthy one).  Here is a bloom cut this morning

Thanks for the welcome backs folks

Yesterday was a day of watering and 'lympics watching.  Much excited shouting at the telly - particularly in that men's pursuit final .....I thought they were going to miss out

No sunshine today, so will get out there and do some weeding .....but will be stopping at 3 for more telly watching ......didn't think I would get into Rio because of the time difference, but how wrong I was.  Makes me sad to see all those empty seats though

Great pics Yvie - thanks for posting.  Love that stumpery and the meadows are stunning

Copperdog - we must live quite close Wisley is one of my favourite days out no matter what time of year - always something to see

Morning allπŸ˜€

Just back from a fab holiday in Mallorca.  Lovely little hotel, would happily go back there again and again.  Wall to wall sunshine and very little done, apart from hold down some rather skittish sunbeds (they fidgeted unless you lay down on them motionless for long periods of time), and read lots of books.  In the evenings, when it got cooler, Mr C and I did a few stunning cliff walks and climbed a mini-mountain.....Fairy would be proud of me - first time I had followed cairns for years

Have returned to a garden in pretty good shape, thanks to our lovely NDN.  Not back to work til Monday so got a few days to potter around house and garden to get things sorted.

Only read back a few pages, but so pleased to see DD and Charlie getting settled - Charlie's smiles say it all
