I'm here.  Just been catching up

Pdoc - sorry to hear about your Mum - and hope someone else steps in in time for you to enjoy G.   Speaking of which, both G and Wimbledon seem to be having the usual effect - the forecast says rain arrives on Thurs night and then stays for weeks.

Mining from home today - amazing what technology can do these days

Stunning Lizzie .... Practically perfect in every way (as Mary Poppins would say) .... You must be so pleased with it.  And now that you have crammed a months worth of gardening into a couple of days in prep for the opening, you can now sit back and enjoy for the next few weeks

Morning Lesley

Misty here, but no rain.  Just been and watered my pots.  Bumper crop of mini cucumbers last night, and plenty more to come - won't be buying them from the SM for  a while.

Hope everyone has a good day ......

Morning all

Got back from my Peaks weekend late last night ...... so much to catch up on here, I don't know where to start.  So glad the wedding went well OL - wonderful pics - you all looked so lovely

Molly-in-a-bucket, and all my other plant gifts, made it home safely (many,many thanks fidget and nut).  Caused quite a lot of amusement that i had taken a watering can on my weekend away.  Had a really great weekend - lots of walking and lots of new friends made - seems eons ago that i was last at work.  Think i might have forgotten exactly how to mine that salt.......
