Fg, It's called re-inventing the wheel - some people just can't help it ...

The sprinkler has been on the PSB and runner beans, and I've given the courgettes a soaking.  The frogs are basking in the sun in the pond, just sticking their heads above water, and the air here is full of the sound of lawn mowing, children squealing in paddling pools and the smell of paraffin BBQ lighters and someone, somewhere has steaks on their BBQ - I can smell them too...........

We're having baked herby chicken joints with runners and couscous and we're eating on the terrace at 7pm

Sorry folks, but I did warn you it was going to be wet everywhere but here ... you were invited to join us

Julie - if you like crab go to the Rum & Crab Shack at St Ives  Really relaxed place up some stone steps on the seafront - you can have a whole spider crab to pick to pieces if you like, and crab sandwiches and lots of other really good seafood.  So laid back it's almost horizontal and a wonderful view - fine for little ones 

We're soooooooooooo looking forward to going back

It looks familiar Nut, but I can't place it so have kept quiet - doesn't really look like a willow to me, neither a flowering cherry ....... but what?

The discolouration on the leaf doesn't help of course ... perhaps it'll look more familiar when it has fresh new leaves in the spring

Hydrangea Kardinal Violet starting to lose colour.

I love the various shades hydrangea blooms go through as they fade towards autumn - just as beautiful as the fresh colours of the new bloom, but different.
