OL - read one of Santa M's books last summer, and enjoyed it - did you know she was Tara Palmer Tomkinson's sister ??

Busy day on here - taken me ages to catch up - lots of gardening, lots of cake, and a few units of alcohol too.  Welcome newbies - great to have you here.  Love Caral's OH comment - flowers always appear by magic - a bit like clean houses and fresh laundry.

Been bracken bashing in the meadow - making progress.  Could do with some more rain here but none forecast - might have to get the hose out soon.

need to get all my rudbeckias and dahlias in the garden this weekend.  Task no. 1 on the list and its only Tuesday.  Don't know where the time goes.

Got a dreaded team building day tomorrow, swinging through tree tops (madness).  Last time i tried it was about a decade ago, when i accompanied littlest chicklet.  I was so worried that she would fall that i lost my nerve completely .... Turned into a gibbering wreck...... Tomorrow will be a test of whether it really was her i was worried about, or just a phobia of my own.  Unfortunately, i would rather not put it to the test in front of colleagues (none of whom are ever likely to be friends). Do you think i could pull a sickie.

BARNSDALE GARDEN TRIP.

 About 90 pots all told.  And just in case any of the final recipients are Forum readers, i have taken the liberty of adding my moniker to all the labels

Morning all - i survived . Ears still ringing, but it was great fun and littlest chicklet was a VERY happy girl. I couldn't help but singalong ( know all the words - embarrassed smilie - on phone so can't add one properly)

And now i am back on a train into town for an unsociably early meeting. Rain forecast here later - then sunshine for the rest of the week - summer has arrived

Not heard from James for months - does anyone follow his blog?

Decided if i get a wiggle on there are a dozen young foxgloves I can get in the ground this morning - rain forecast tomorrow will be a good first day for them.

we haven't heard our buzzards for a few weeks now - they are normally a regular feature calling to each other above our heads.  Do you think one might be sat on a nest, so that there is no need for the other to call?  Will be sad if they have moved on
