Good to have you back Lesley - glad things went well.

Hope Dr has some answers for Pat

Working in London today, so catching up with you all from a train πŸš‚

Loved my weekend of garden visits in Herefordshire - what a beautiful part of the country πŸ˜€  Hampton Court Castle was stunning and the Picton gardens were a riot of colour.  Couldn't resist temptation in their nursery and came home with four beauties - including Calliope, which has been on my wish list for years and therefore cannot be classed as an impulse buyπŸ˜‰

Gonna be hard to drag my mind away from gardens and into work mode this morning 😳 - one of the drawbacks of a great weekend.

In bed with a cuppa - just heard a flock of geese fly over - beating their wings and honking loudly ......presumably getting ready to fly away soon.

looking forward to the Picton Garden and Hampton Court today - sun's shining, fluffy clouds .......perfect

Sounds like you are very nearly there Ob ......good luck with the move. Looking forward to following the adventures in your new garden

Lovely day garden visiting  Stockton Bury was my favourite - surprises round every corner, but still felt like a cohesive whole.  Now time for a quick snooze (lots of driving) and then some drinks and dinner.  Luckily the weather held here all day - we must be far enough south to miss the grotty bits.  Can see Welsh hills on the horizon ......feels like a long way from home

One more sleep til my Great Garden Adventure begins.  Other treats on the list are Westonbury Water Garden, Hampton Court (the herfordshire one) and Stockton Bury, along with a couple of yellow book ones.  Forecast is a bit changeable, but fingers crossed the showers will miss us.  Only one other person in my car, leaving plenty of room for sweeties - thanks for the warning Ob

Early start tomoz, so unlikely to pop in to say hello - so have a good weekend everyone

Morning peepsπŸŒ„πŸŒ„πŸŒ„

Theatre was great - funny, touching, thought provoking and superbly acted .....can't ask for much more than that

Starting to look forward to the weekend already (well we're half way thru the week, so why not?)......going to Herefordshire with a group of friends on a garden visiting weekend.  Loads planned,will take lots of pics for the other thread.  One I am most looking forward to is the Picton garden with all their asters......should be a good time of year to visit.

But got to get through Thursday and Friday at the saltmines first.  Best get going

Feeling for Lizzie - hope you find someone to stay with you, or go on a little hols yourself .....maybe visit some of the grandchildren?

Off to the theatre tonight🎭🎭🎭 Going to a tiny theatre where the audience surround the action - makes for quite an intense experience But normally a memorable one.

Too dark to pick raspberries, so raisins on my porridge .......sadness. Can we do summer all over again please
