Hot, hot, hot here too  i am sat on a hill watching the fighter jets from Farnborough Air show - we were too stingy/disorganised to get proper tickets.  Its very loud and a bit scary, but Mr C is a very happy boy.  I drag him round on enough garden visits   Currently sat under an umbrella - brought it for showers, but it works as a parasol

Well done GWRS - trophy sounds good

Glad you enjoyed Norway Steve.  We once had a camping holding day there - many moons ago - and loved it. Scenery was absolutely breathtaking.

Spent the morning in the garden, which restored my mojo - keeping away from the news for a bit did me no end of good.  My four year old dierama produced its first flower spike. And its all looking wonderfully flowery out there.  Currently lying in my hammock watching the bees work the last remaining foxglove flowers - happy days

Think wintersong was driven away by some nastiness - I miss her wit, and her fabulous garden

I loved Knights in white satin too .....this is what they looked like in my mind .......

No cheesecloth or flares here though - I discovered MB as part of a retro phase at Uni (along with Rumours) antidote to Duran Duran

And not a Brexiteer left standing  outsiders looking in at this shambles must be scratching their heads at the absurdity of it all.  However, not sad to see the back of Ma Leadsom - as an energy minister she has been a complete and utter disaster.  Lets hope Theresa May does us proud.
