Small world, Dove.  The girls are all wearing bow ties to school at the moment - his trademark and their tribute.  Gotta go now or I'll start crying again

Morning all - mizzly here.

Dove - this lad was from Reading, so a different one ..... sadly happens all too often.

Got to circumnavigate Ascot this week to get to work - always a challenge.  But only a 4 day week, as i have Friday off for much more exciting adventures

Hope the Australian doesn't eat you out of house and home Fidget

I'm sort of round, with yellow fluffy hair and an orange beak .... Hard to miss really.

2 more sleeps.  Just been googling - 39 gardens. Sooooo excited.

Love taking pics of the garden to remind you how far you have come!

Waiting to pick littlest chicklet up from a theatre trip - 1 hr here, 1 hour home

Hope she has enjoyed the show ! They all need a bit of a pickmeup - her form tutor was tragically killed in a motorbike accident on the way to school on Friday morning ... we have all been in shock ever since. He was a really popular teacher, 26 and due to get married in the summer. Can't begin to think what his family are going through. All very very sad - and a reminder that everything is so fragile.

Apologies - will be back to plants and gardens in the morning

I've got RHS card, but not a 2 for 1. Looks like not much money will be handed in at entrance kiosk ..... no doubt will compensate at cake kiosks

Morning - feel better now after my super early night. 3 more sleeps to Barnsdale ....... the excitement is mounting!  Just been for my morning garden wander, and for once saw all the good bits, and forgot to look for the bad.  I must try and do that more often!

Just in (Pilates, not working hard) - and am so crackered i'm heading off for bed.  But not before I confess a trip to GC at lunch time for some dusky pink gazanias, nicotianas and petunias to fill my final border gaps ...... wouldn't be able to sleep without getting that off my chest.  Hopefully home early enough tomorrow to plant them out.

If i'd known it was a race i would have posted before i went for a wander round the garden to see if any of my new plantings had been munched (all is well).  But i didn't, so will have to make do with bronze...
