Back in the hammock again . Will have to join you in a watering spree in a minute Panda - although we have rain forecast for tomorrow - daren't trust it to come on recent form though

Not thatched, just tin (hot tin today - will need to find a cat from somewhere to complete the picture).  Came so far because we couldn't find a local roofer who would even answer a phone, or return an email, never mind give us a quote .....job too small.

blueberries ready when they are blue/black all over - i find the last bit to ripen is the bit where the stalk joins.  Ours have been fab this year - were in pots for the last three years and then liberated into the ground this spring.  Fantastic autumn colours too

Verdun - just make sure you use that money to help the vulnerable and disadvantaged......and don't fritter it away on doughnuts

Meant to be scorching here today, but at the moment there is a strong wind ....strange, those two things don't normally go together.  Having a new garage roof put in today - guys arrived at 6.30, having set off at 3am from Yorkshire.  Think that deserved a cuppa and a bacon butty, don't you  Wanted to offer them freshly picked blueberries, but OH convinced me that was a mad plan .... so I'm about to eat them myself

Wardrobe malfunctions always make me smile....but in the garden takes it to a whole new level.  Have decided to turn off my laptop early and head for the hammock.  But have just seen Hampton Court coverage is on the box tonight at 9.30 .....so thought I'd let anyone who's interested know

Morning Folks  Gentle start for me this morning.  Work is very quiet this week.....but it is the calm before the storm.

My philadelphus are really pumping out the fragrance this year .....i have four, that came as cuttings from our last garden.  They were my first ever cuttings, so have a special place in my heart.  No idea what variety, but they are double and smell divine.

Big thanks for sharing Lizzie

DD - the lilies are stunning, and that last pic of the clematis scrambling through the rose makes my heart soar.  Well done...feel very proud, even as an onlooker
