Obelixx - sorry about pusscat 


I've got a bit of a technical problem - the power cable to my laptop appears to be kaput - I'm running out of battery power - OH is going into the city tomorrow so will pick up a new one for me, but until then I'll have to post on my phone .............

Hello, I'm back - hair cut done and don't need new glasses and no signs of glaucoma or mac. deg or any of that stuff I have to keep an eye open for 


I managed to buy myself a new outfit too - didn't intend to, was only looking - must have had a sticky label 


Sorry to hear Pdoc's still poorly - positive vibes and lots of ((hugs)) to him and Mrs Pdoc. 


Sorry too to hear David K has gone - the photo thing is frustrating - having bought a good camera, it's annoying that I can only post from my phone at the moment, but I know they're doing their best to sort it out.  As I think has been mentioned before, Daniel is only a Demi-God - there are bigger and more important Gods up there on the Olympus that is Immediate Media Mountain who make big decisions and hold the purse strings - he and Nora do their best for us - as gardeners we should understand the importance of being patient.

Chicky    it's going to remind us of Cornwall ... OH is going to be allowed an aeonium nigra  and we'll try to create a feeling of that seaside intensity of light and warmth    ... with a twist ... but that's all you're getting for now ... some of it may take some time to achieve ... 


Now I have a bus to catch ........ SYL folks

That big ball in the sun is awfully hot.

Good morning all   G'day Pat  


It's a beautiful morning here in Norfolk ... 20C in the shade and there's a song thrush singing out there - a bit earlier on I heard a mistle thrush.  The goldfinches and greenfinches are busy emptying the feeders - think it's been a good breeding season for them, lots of juveniles around - we're filling the feeders every day.


The garden is looking gorgeous (sunshine always helps doesn't it) and we now have firm plans, rather than hazy ideas for our sunny corner ...... we're not used to gardening in sunshine, having had shady gardens for the last 20 years, but the recent holiday in Cornwall has given us ideas 


I do hope Pdoc and Mrs P are ok and able to enjoy their lovely garden in the sunshine ... thinking about them a lot ((hugs))


Clari, take care of that cold 

Sad hydrangea :-(

Hydrangias are very thirsty plants - are they getting plenty of water?

KEF 


It's been 30.2C in the shade out there - OH made me sit in the shade while he finished the 'sorting out' of the sunny corner which used to have a big tree growing in it - we've moved some plants and one of the garden seats over there ... lots of ideas 


Then I lounged out there with a book ad a campari & soda until supper time (hot dogs made with lovely bread rolls, butcher's sausages and loads of fried onions).


Now the combination of alcohol followed by white bread means I'm about to fall asleep .........

Planting out potted raspberries

Don't worry  - they'll still grow and you'll still get raspberries.  You can dig them up and split them in February when you cut the canes down to the ground
