Verdun, we need it here - but the friend who's coming to stay has connections in the Channel Islands - shall I ask her to send some of their weather to you?  If all the weather just moved up a couple of notches ...?

Thanks Bob 

Do you watch out for the Space Station passing over - we've watched it quite a few times now - brilliant

Good morning all 

Sunshine, blue skies and white fluffies here again this morning - we are having a lovely summer, even if we have rain sometimes.  Temp in the garden got up to 25C yesterday and only dropped to 12.2C overnight - no wonder my tomatoes are happy 

I have a day of cooking and getting ready for friend's arrival tomorrow ... I will need regular mugs of coffee ....

And if anyone's irritating you on the forum, just ignore it - much the best way - onwards and upwards 

I will/I won't grow that again

Don't think it can be old age - Ma's 90 and she says we've had an awful summer - mind you she thinks I'm her sister - or her solicitor

Hi Peanuts 

Don't know - some things about it make me think Boletus edulis - but there's also things about it that make me think no - and I'm not an expert
