Clari - Steve has hit the nail on the head .....couldn't have put it better myself

Yvie - fingers crossed that both eyes (ie yours and OH's) make speedy and full recoveries, and that Mum gets good care and the right sort of attention this time.

pleased to hear Flatters has a treatment plan even if putting it into practice might require some resourceful thinking

bushed,  time for ZZZZZzzzzz

Oh no. Still dark when the alarm went off this morning.  I think summer may be drawing to a close

Littlest Chicklet came home bright and cheerful from her first day at Sixth Form. Long may it continue.  She must have picked up on the positive Forker vibes

Great day at Wisley yesterday - will have a photo loading session this evening. Lots to see in the fruit gardens, and even went in the glasshouses this trip.

but today .....back to work

hope you all have a happy day

Morning Snoodle, Evening Pat

first day at a new school/college for littlest chicklet this morning.  Keeping fingers crossed she settles in quickly.  New routine, involving trains to get there, so my first task is to deposit her at a station - then its over to her

after that, a trip to Wisley is planned (got a day off).  Yesterday's water gardens were lovely - will post pics on appropriate thread later.  A few new buddlejas followed us home ......including this beauty


It's my birthday

Morning all, and a big welcome to Gertie and Gummer

I know Beauly,Fairy (but only because it is one end of a new, and highly fought over, high voltage, electricity transmission line ....I really should get out more).  Hope squirrel nutkin appears for you.

We are taking my uncle to the Leckford water gardens today - only open on the first Sunday of the month, so we have timed it perfectly.  Will take some pics.  Have been before and it is lovely - part of the John Lewis estate, near Stockbridge.  Nice cafe and plant centre too

Hope everyone else has a sunny Sunday .....its glorious here  (at last)
