I don't think you can ever have too many homegrown toms - even if they are just frozen for pizza and pasta toppings they taste so much better than anything bought in

hugs LilyP - a difficult one.  Cherish mini LilyP even more, if thats possible.

rained ALL day - think the garden is well watered now.  Can we have the sun back now please 

off to do some taxi-ing - but have podcasts of GQT to entertain me on the return journey.  Chicklet still hasn't stopped smiling

Panda - getting my finger crossing routine ready for Tuesday

Help needed!

I find the same Lyn - I always wait til photos have copied over to the photostream, and then don't have a problem.  Whereas ones from the camera roll end up any which way.  Maybe one for Katie Carnie to have a look at ......lets see if I can find her thread

Brilliant KEF - what a lovely haul

Fairy, Carol, Pdooc and Victoria - love your garden pics.  Particularly like the buddleja/kniphofia combination in victorias, and some of Pdocs are really eyecatching too .....putting Mr Lloyds teachings into practice.  Just goes to show, rools iz there to be broken

New buds are always v exciting Fairy pics pls

Fidget - meant to answer your question from pages back - Chicklet has a place in one of the Halls on campus for her first year - but thanks for thinking of us.  

Hope a cancellation comes up soon Hosta - mid September does seem a long way away

Has been wet, is very dark now, and some more wet to come.  But welcome - this lot should get down in the soil a few inches

another day off for me - was going to go garden visiting, but don't fancy getting soggy. So i will potter round the house and GH instead.  Have to retrieve Chicklet at some stage ......some serious celebrating went on last night

glad fairylet did well too.  We have to repeat the whole process next week with littlest chicklet and GCSEs.

have been planning bulbs in my head here too - but normally wait til Sept to actually order, when lots of places seem to have big discounts.

have a great day all - the recliner will need to be tested inside Dove - you can't wait for the next sunny day

hugs, and more hugs, for LilyP

Thanks for all the good wishes - sobbing has stopped, but smiling still definitely the order of the day

Absolutely tipping it down here in Churt Steve - complete with thunder and lightening are less than 10 miles away, so I'm sure you'll be getting some soon.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

 Chicklet did brill in her A-levels .   Off to Nottingham Uni in September.  So proud, so relieved (the last few days have been stressful beyond belief), so happy for her ......but I think I might be about to sob uncontrollably
