Visited an NGS garden in Frensham Surrey today.  Chatted with the gardener - it is all her own efforts, no paid help.  It was absolutely packed full of plants - gorgeous

Just been for another gorgeous walk, and paella for tea - think we'll sit outside.  Then a recorded Tatton to finish off a very lovely day

Sounds like a lovely day Wonky  Love Brighton - especially the lanes (sister used to live there, and is still not far from it).


Think Mr C must have been looking in here yesterday - when I got in from work he suggested making the most of the beautiful evening by going for a walk around the punchbowl, followed by alfresco chish and fips. This was our view whilst we munched



Had the place to ourselves ......perfect

Friday has arrived


I had a clear out of unwanted plants last weekend too (although not on Hosta's scale) ....funny how the need to water pots can concentrate the mind

Just googled Wightwick Manor .....looks lovely  Hope you take some pics for us.  My Mum helped out a lot when the chicklets were little - she was the best Mum in the world, and the Chicklets had a very close bond with her as a result.  Enjoy your last day with them before the hols.


Slept with all our windows wide open, and it was actually ok.  About to go open all the GH vents - the tomatoes are loving this weather


Have a good day one and all

Used to use a Crabtree and Evelyn gardeners cleanser - but they stopped making it.  Will definitely try the occitane version - thanks Yvie
