Greetings from Russia  Trip has started well

Have just taught myself thankyou and goodbye ......decided that, and liberal application of cheery smiles, should just about cover it

Morning peeps

Just been raspberry picking .....feels pretty warm out there

Littlest Chicklet presented me with a list of Uni open days she would like to go to last night. MrC is going to have to do the honours for a couple, as I am already booked for things.....but seems like every Saturday in October and November will see "Chicks on Tour" .......might keep a tally of miles travelled just for the lols

Is anyone else planning their spring tulip displays yet?

I've used SR collections twice.  First was the venetian one and it was lovely, but didn't really fit in with the other things that were flowering about the same time. Then tried vintage silk last year - disappointing as they all flowered in succession, so didn't really ever get the full effect.  Back to diy this year I think

Snakes and hideyholes

Lovely gesture from Ob's gardening group - they"re obviously going to miss you big time.

Hope your nieces enjoy their jewellry Fidget - great idea, much better  than having them sat forever in jewellry boxes, but still keep their meaning.

My life is currently being ruled by the radio - spent 10 minutes in a layby on the way home yesterday, as I didn't trust myself to listen AND drive.  Emerged with red eyes, feeling rather sheepish

Can't get used to this weird weather we are having - very warm but cloudy ......most odd

Wyevale gone to pot!

My favourite combo is ballade (pink with a white edge) along with white triumphator .....but this year I am thinking of trying out some purples, based around Rems favourite.

Must get my order in soon

Morning all

Had a great day in Brighton yesterday sun, howling gale, but good cheesy chips

Then back to sisters for a fun evening (had to excuse myself at 7pm to go into a corner and listen to the wireless) and back here very late.

Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside ......๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽน๐ŸŽผ
