Snap Nut - sometimes the option of getting wet is preferable to sweltering in waterproof clothing.

Maybe I should pack a beach towel

Morning Panda 

Can't help it - I wake at some time between 5 and 6am, usually nearer 5, and can't get back to sleep 

If I was planting agapanthus into a bed, I'd put it in a pot and sink the pot in the bed - but I know there are other opinions.

Just thought I'd mention, the Met Office is suggesting that we may get a thundery shower on Saturday - bring your macintosh and galoshes or be prepared to get wet 

Outrageous sexism!!!!!

I just wish I could get wellies on!  My insteps are so high that I can only get wellies on if they're about 3 sizes too big, which means that they're much too big 

I used to have a real problem when I rode regularly - could never get the cheaper rubber long riding boots on - had to have the really expensive ones with zips 

Total PITA

Nothing to do with sexism  just awkward feet

Morning Stacey and Lily 

No need to worry about salt mine Lily - they'll all just be jealous as heck!!! 

Blackberries

I agree with Artjak - although some wild blackberries are delicious, they are variable.  Better to get a named variety with a reputation for good flavour.

Morning KEF 

Once I'm awake I'm wide awake - can't stay in bed - have to come down and have my coffee - but then I can either get ready and go out, or sit here and noodle on the forum until OH is awake 

Potatoes decimated!

To distinguish Colorado beetles from Striped Blister Beetles see here

I'm afraid that both of them like to eat solanacae so potatoes are vulnerable.

Lizzie, have a lovely day with Rose  

I leave my agapanthus  Sky Ricket outside in a pot over winter - I wrap the pot in bubblewrap and put it in the most sheltered corner of the terrace next to the fig.  It is then surrounded by other pots of bulbs (tulips, crocus etc) and sits the winter out.  It's been there for 3 winters so far, although I'll admit that the last one wasn't much of a test.  It's just coming into bloom now
