I love lemon verbena tea too Raisin girl - really does taste like lemon sherbert in a cup.  This is my first year with the plant - planning to take it in the greenhouse for the winter that right?

Hope they get that fire under control soon Pat.

Hope Dove is triaged successfully

So many things to love in that last one - but the mosaic snake on the pebbles and the bug hotel with built in butterfly motif deserve a special mention ......genius

Morning all

We think we have found someone to house-sit for us when we go away in November - going to call them for a chat in a bit.  Then we are heading up to London for another "hidden" walk ......Borough Market area.  And tomorrow, I will garden 

Hope Mr Pat is home safe very soon.  Lizzie - looks like the garden might have to wait til next week after all.

Hope you enjoyed the Spring Exhibition 🌱🌷

Dad visiting done last night - the nursing home he is in is lovely, and the staff all friendly and attentive, so thats good. Think he'll be there a couple of weeks before he is ready to go home. He's pretty uncomfortable, but he's got a lot of healing to do .  He's much better once he gets talking and thinking about something else.

Discovery of the old path sounds exciting Liri you know much about the history of the place?

Hope Lizzie and Dacha are now safely home 🏡
