None of Cleve Beau - although we did go for a chat with him at the end - such a nice man

Guests arrived at 11.30 (instead of the planned 1pm - drives me mad) - so I was still up to my elbows in weeds and mud.  But had time to plant my irises, frittilarys and byzantine glads, plus get a few more heathers in the driveway bank.

work tomorrow - but 4 day week this week

Great pics - love the lake reflections too.  Glad you had a lovely time.  

One day I'll join you as a temporary twig - if i can do Plymouth and York as day trips, then the world is, indeed my oyster

Glad all is going well Tracey - its bound to be hectic at the start of a new business - but its great to see you and hear how its going.

Have a good day in London Lily - is this the postponed birthday treat??

glad the sun shone on the Twigs - the forecasters got it wrong all round yesterday - we too had layers that needed to be discarded in sunny Devon.

sounds like major excavations going on in Fairy's Garden - that whirlygig was going nowhere on its own was it.

finishing my cuppa, then out to do some weeding.   Got guests coming at 1pm, so it will only be a couple of hours

Wish I could nod off . Another 30 minutes of train journey, then an hours drive home . However, all worthwhile as had a very successful day - Chicklet has another strong contender for her list. And thats all for now .... just a small matter of producing a string of good grades next summer- there doesn't seem to be much room for manouvre these days.

And tomorrow ..... I will garden

Pansyface- i found it only works if you use Safari to open the page in the first place - then it works fine on my iPad mini - hope this helps

Had forgotten how truly spectacular this stretch of railway is - feels like the train is actually in the sea . Brilliant sunshine too - verd must have obliged and sent it this way. Embarrassing the chicklets by taking pics out the window and gasping in appreciation at the scenery - its all part of the character building service i provide as a parent

Morning DD

Why does this time in the morning feel so much worse on a Saturday than it does on a weekday???

Heading off to catch our Plymouth train - will be looking in from time to time on the journey.

hope Spike is better this morning.

and hope the TWIGS have fun
