Good morning all

Glad Woody's visitors had a lovely day - I hope Ggirl took some photos

It looks as if a fine day may be on it's way ... just as well as today has been designated 'Waxing the Parquet Day' - an annual event that got delayed due to Pa's demise.  OH is going to help

Onopordum, Ian says you've got it   He's done some googling of French sites using your information and it looks as if that's the one - fascinating.

Ian has asked me to pass on his thanks to everyone

Pet Rabbit

Wonky hasn't confessed, but I'll tell all - her rabbit called Mouse (because he'd been the smallest of the litter when he was born) was regularly found curled up on her pillow next to her, both of them sound asleep, when I went to check on her in bed at night !!!

And Happy was a big buck Daddy Rabbit, who lived with the goat kids 'cos if we left him with the lady bunnies all the time ....... well!!!  Think we'd have had too many rabbits!!!

broad bean problem

I agree - that's what they do - the beans come along after the flowers have dropped.  Broad beans can be quite thirsty at this stage, so if you've not had any rain in the past few days you could give them a drink
