Oops, good morning all, cat sat on laptop earlier, sorry about that!


Rained here all night, so relieved, at last, was beginning to think we would never see any again. Hope it doesn't hang around too long though, house full of holidaymakers not quite as pleased to see rain as me.

Hoping to get some weeding done now the ground has been softened and some general tidying up.

Good day to you all.

Please send me some over Steve, we are so desperate for it, never thought I would hear myself say that.

Love shortbread GG, you can send some of that over too.

Evening all,

Had a lovely little break in Sarlat, albeit camping for a few days.

Yesterday back to the B&B at full pace, just in time to welcome guests and get dinner ready for them all.

Today hacked at hedges which are trying to take over and got very excited to see rain, unfortunately only lasted 5 minutes.

Shadow hassling for his evening walk so will check in with you all tomorrow.

Good night.

Evening all, just a quick pop in whilst waiting for last guests to arrive (full again tonight). Must admit to sitting outside with a glass of wine whilst waiting and an hour ago he phoned to say they were going to be a bit late - hope I don't trip up the stairs when they finally get here, the one glass turned into two. 

Finally managed to get to Limoges and was worth the wait, have come home with some new trainers in preparation for my half marathon (attempt) and a new 'sit up & beg' bicycle. 

House is clean, garden watered and tomorrow am off to Sarlat for a few days ( did mess up the bookings so have to return tomorrow night to do breakfast next morning, it is only an hour away but then off until Saturday, very much looking forward to the break. 

Good luck with new job WW, 

Kef sorry to hear about Hairdressers - I hate them all anyway, have terrible hair and they all manage to tell me what I already know - 'isn't is fine' 

Lesley, hope it all works out for you. 

Good luck Edd. 

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 21/07/2015 at 20:22

David  - question as the go to expert.  My sweet peas (free from GW last autumn) have been really good but have suddenly looked like they are all over, I have neglected for a few days and not been dead heading and it is extremely hot and dry here (Dorgdogne). Any chance of resusitation or have I missed my moment?? 

Garden Pictures 2015

All extremely beautiful, as someone said earlier -  inspirational. 

Lilly Pilly, I thought I had landed on the gardens I've visited page, was fully expecting a stately home in the background. 

Verdun, you deserve some extra doughnuts for all that effort.

Edd - bon voyage.
BL sorry to hear about your plants.
