Morning all - half day for me, then the weekend starts at noon.  Littlest chicklet has her prom this evening so I will be her chariot driver and personal dresser for the afternoon and various parts of the evening (its complicated, don't ask.....fair to say the chariot might be following one of those bus routes).  But the sun is shining, and it looks like its gonna be a bootiful day

Love that Mozart piece - used to be able to play it (minus the twiddly bits).

Glad to hear the driving is coming along Winter.  

And  for Panda .....keep positive, there's one out there with your name on it.  And every interview makes you that bit better for the next one.

lovely day here (soz Fairy).  That means I'd better get outside and get some watering done.  Monty might only water his pots once a week, but don't think that will work with my chimney pots.....or the numerous 9cm jobbies that are still in my GH. On a mission to get them in the ground sometime very soon

Morning  Tennis was fun Have to go and do some proper work today.  Have had a spattering of overnight rain here - although probs not enough to be useful.  About to go and water the greenhouse before I set off -SYL

Hope you are sorted soon Dove - although the neighbours must think you are rehearsing for some sort of AmDram victorian farce.  Happy wall building Lesley love it when a plan comes together

Only a morning working today, as I am off to watch the tennis at Queens.  Was sad to see Nadal exit, i like him and his muscles  Might catch you all later when I am on my train.

Went to Abbey House Gardens in Malmesbury - loved it enough to return for a second visit (and I am a 2 hour drive away)

Love the new look Dove.  wonderful carrots Lizzie - go for the taste prize

......And breathe ..... Exams over.  

have decided the best way to view a meadow is from ground level, with a glass of something cold

 Hope everything went well today Panda

Really great result Woody - glad it was such a success  You all have such lovely gardens to share, and great to make so much for your charites too.  Looking forward to the next one  Today is the day to put your feet up (find another bench) and enjoy 

Today is the last exam in the Chicky household.  Feels like a marathon six weeks.  Fingers crossed and good vibes for one last time - as this one is an important one (its the subject Chicklet wants to study at Uni, so top grades required).  

Great Finland pictures Liri - looks idyllic
