Lovely news about new GD Lizzie, and what a pretty name . Looks like you are in at the deep end for the next few days 

Hope Nut's garden opening goes well (not sure if she looks in here).

it is our village's open garden weekend starting today.  I'm just off to man the ticket office for a couple of hours, then will have a look round myself.  Taking the bike, as its quite a walk from one end of the village to another 

Coming soon... At last ....Chateau de Gateau

Loved my visit this year.  If less big sponsors mean more feel good gardens, then bring it on

Tootles - loved that clematis too - think it was called Tiagra, on the Thorncroft stand.

Liri - would love to see your pics. Haven't seen a thread yet, so go for it and I'll add a few of mine

So pleased you are enjoying the job Wonky - sounds perfect.  Hope the hand tingling has eased.  Curious about trainees without hikes   Where do you find those 

And big hi to Bushman and DD too.

Opticians this morning and smart meter fitting this afternoon.  They've tried before, but our signal was not strong enough.  Hoping that now our local telephone mast has been upgraded it will be ok.  Can't go round extolling their virtues without having one myself.

Did you hear solar power broke a record in this country yesterday lunchtime ?

Look after yourself Dove - hope you're not too uncomfortable waiting for everything to heal.  And speedy recovery to LilyP too.

Hope you get out to a hill tomorrow Fairy   Good antidote to a tough week

I'm home   Went straight from Chelsea to a work conference - will be glad to sleep in my own bed tonight

Had a fabulous day out at Chelsea.  Bought primulas from Hosta's lovely friends(and had a nice chat too).  CBs garden was my favourite, along with the poets one and the japanese one with the amazing waterfall.  Maltese quarry left us all cold - noticeable that very few people crowding round to look at it πŸ‘€ 

Floral marquee was brilliant, and lots of laughs had with my sisters .....its the most amazing place to people watch and eavesdrop ....although not really eavesdropping once the braying types get going
