Morning all Wondered whether the Big Weekend would affect you much Dove Think wine in the garden whilst listening to the warbles of Olly Murs waft over the fence is the way to go.  It'll be over by 11 .....this is the BBC.

looking forward to a long weekend.  Few jobs to do in the garden today, and then Sun/Mon is our village open gardens.  Will be visiting on Sunday,and helping to sell tickets on Monday

Glad your geums are doing well OL - i have a load from the offer a couple of years ago which are putting on a spectacular show

Exam season stressful - but halfway thru for littlest Chicklet tomorrow - woop woop

Seem to be going ok for now. Chicklet has A levels in a couple of weeks too - so house is more than slightly on edge. Mr chicky is considering moving out til its all over - too much female drama for his straightforward brain to cope with. He is getting up extra early every exam morning to provide hot bacon butties as brain food
Hope yours are going well - be strong tomorrow ((hugs))

Congrats on your woodpecker OL - lovely birds - look so exotic somehow

On a train home from Chelsea .... Wonderful day Chris Beardshaw garden definitely my favourite (gorgeous colours and plants) with the Australian one, the writers retreat and Matthew Wilsons close behind. Meh to a few of the others. Biggest Wow moment of the day was for the sculpture of the airman in the resistance garden - totally surreal.

Plant marquee was spectacular - clematis, irises, peaonies and roses provided additions to my wishlist.

Will post pics at the weekend.

I waved .....did you see me

Great shed news Dove And womble creations sounding exciting too  Off to google Arabella now ......
