Clouded over here, so today is a gardening day.


Invested in some new lilac geraniums (splish splash and mrs kendall clark) which need to be got in the ground.  Also ridiculously excited that my salvia caradonna cuttings all seem to have taken .....8 more of that great plant for next year.  Still a bit of a novice when it comes to cuttings, so gives me a buzz when it works

Visited an NGS garden in Frensham Surrey today.  Chatted with the gardener - it is all her own efforts, no paid help.  It was absolutely packed full of plants - gorgeous

I'm doing the sprinkler leaping too Dove


Just been for another gorgeous walk, and paella for tea - think we'll sit outside.  Then a recorded Tatton to finish off a very lovely day

Sounds like a lovely day Wonky  Love Brighton - especially the lanes (sister used to live there, and is still not far from it).


Think Mr C must have been looking in here yesterday - when I got in from work he suggested making the most of the beautiful evening by going for a walk around the punchbowl, followed by alfresco chish and fips. This was our view whilst we munched



Had the place to ourselves ......perfect

Just googled Wightwick Manor .....looks lovely  Hope you take some pics for us.  My Mum helped out a lot when the chicklets were little - she was the best Mum in the world, and the Chicklets had a very close bond with her as a result.  Enjoy your last day with them before the hols.


Slept with all our windows wide open, and it was actually ok.  About to go open all the GH vents - the tomatoes are loving this weather


Have a good day one and all
