Morning all Wondered whether the Big Weekend would affect you much Dove Think wine in the garden whilst listening to the warbles of Olly Murs waft over the fence is the way to go. It'll be over by 11 .....this is the BBC.
looking forward to a long weekend. Few jobs to do in the garden today, and then Sun/Mon is our village open gardens. Will be visiting on Sunday,and helping to sell tickets on Monday
Glad your geums are doing well OL - i have a load from the offer a couple of years ago which are putting on a spectacular show
The writers retreat
Mr Beardshaw does it again
All in all a great show
Here are my favourite pics from Chelsea
This sculpture of the airman was amazing
The australian one
Matthew Wilsons was lovely
Day off today for my Chelsea visit ....and the sun is shining ......soooooo excited
Panda - I had definitely heard 5pm on Monday for the train strike (that way they can make sure 24 hours catches a working day too) so although I have fingers crossed i think you and your companions will be just fine.
hope second garden visit goes well Lizzie - you're an old hand now
Great shed news Dove And womble creations sounding exciting too Off to google Arabella now ......
Morning all. No tinternet here yesterday, so playing catch up.
((hugs)) Clari, and good luck with sorting out a BSL course. Really good idea to get others at the museum involved too.
So glad your open day went well Lizzie ....I knew they'd love it Safe journey, Matty.
i'd start with just the one GH Ggirl ....baby steps and all that
Loving the chelsea coverage ....really looking forward to Thursday now.
Gotta dash ....exam this morning .....daren't be late.....not a good idea to add any more stress to the boiling pot
Oooo big changes Hosta. Hope it all works out ....salad is good for this time of year
Can't even stomach the smell of Pernod after an overindulgence 30 years ago that will stay with me forever
My bracken bashing was a success - OH bought an old fashioned scythe last year, so I had a few Poldark moments, swishing said scythe back and forwards. Got the job done in record time .... the old ways are sometimes best
Then got everything I needed to planted, a bit more weeding, and the last of my seedlings in pots. They'll be a few more weeks before they are ready for the garden, but they are now motoring away.
what a lovely weekend. Back to work and exams tomorrow. But first, abit of Beechgrove and Chelsea.
Back on Nanna duties already Yvie ...you've only just got home. You really are a gem. Never mind the gears MrsG - just concentrate on how to work the brakes
Enjoy your day at Lizzies DD - just seen your cupcakes on the other thread - would it be ok to have one for breakfast
Another day in the garden planned - some more potting on and then a bracken bashing session in the meadow. You can certainly notice the difference in the bit I tackled last year, so worth persevering. My yellow rattle is going crazy too.....happy days
