Supper's over, OH is washing up - I was looking forward to starting the new knitting project but whast with starting my day at 4am this morning, and having just had a large glass of something white and chilled, I'm feeling very 

See you in the morning folks - sweet dreams 

What's wrong with my new clematis?

It's not a clematis I know, but this says that it flowers in May and June, so it's probably done it's bit for this year

Hello   I'm back from shopping and the dental hygienist.  I've got some lovely new yarn for a sweater .

OH has got the washing in thank goodness - the sky has gone dark and they're moving that heavy furniture around upstairs again

Morning all   Glad you're all up and at'em now   Morning Bushman ((hugs)) for the poorly foot.

Fairy ,  I***ing done - until the next line full is dry (and I'll only do my linen shirt from that lot, not everything) and downstairs floors have been swept and the kitchen floor washed, cucumbers potted on and the first one eaten (mini patio type - delish for breakfast ) , birds fed, frogs greeted, more washing on line ........ what else?  Ah yes, cosmos deadheaded  and pots all watered.  

Now I'll have another coffee and get on with sewing up the latest knitting ... I'll be buying more wool when I go into the city to the dentist (hygienist).  Hope Hosta's out of the dentist's chair now

I think it may be due to the wet growing conditions we've had this year.  Try steaming them.

  I'm in East Anglia and I'm not moaning really (sorry) ... it's warm so things are growing, and we're getting a bit more rain than usual so I'm not having to use the hose as the waterbutts are continually being topped up ... we've got more slugs than usual   but the nematodes are arriving today ......... 

And I got loads of washing dry yesterday
