If you want coverage then the climbing hydrangea does well in shade - can't remember the right spelling but its something like hydrangea petioralis

£9.50 standard charge for an international transfer Fidget (Lloyds and Barclays) ...extortionate when you add that to the rubbish exchange rate they will no doubt apply .....and all they are doing is electroncally updating a couple of ledgers

Enjoy Yorkshire Lizzie - plus glad you had fun on the Broads.  And enjoy Ireland Liri - what a well travelled bunch we are.

Waiting for the storms here - very oppresive, giving me a headache. That and the maruding bambis, who, having left hostas alone for the last 7 years have suddenly developed a taste for them (see Garden Gallery .....didn't want to upset Hostafan by putting pics on here with no health warning)

Got an appointment in Windsor to set up a new bank account tomorrow.  My existing one wants to charge me £10 everytime we make a transfer to Chicklet   HSBC don't charge if you have all your accounts with them needs must.

Enjoying my sweetpeas atm - enough for vases (well jugs and carafes collected from far and wide ) in every room ....delish

Not a jam jar, but an old milk bottle I found in a charity shop (stamped local co-operative society - please rinse and return )

Morning - heading off to Stratford (upon Avon) for a christening old friend of mine's new baby girl.  They live in New York now, so don't get to see them very often.  Looking forward to it, but best get on our way, as a few miles to eat up🚗🚕🚙
