Loved that steel retaining wall   


Love liver too and we often have it here ... my little gardening granny used to have to eat raw liver sandwiches ... Victorian cure for anemia apparently 


One load on the line and another in the machine ... the clouds are clearing and there's more than enough blue to make a sailor a pair of trousers, so I've changed the bedlinen.

Post Honey Fungus

I would get on with replanting right away ... I know several lovely gardens which have honey fungus in them ... there are lots of lovely plants which don't seem to be affected.

Just done a quick trolley dash around W'rose ... at this time of the year they have lovely pillows 'cos all the landlords are kitting out the student lets etc ... I love their cheap £15 a pair washable pillows so I grabbed another couple   plus a load of washing liquid, bleach, drain cleaner, kettle de-scaler, shower spray sort of stuff ... plus flour, butter and lard for a bit of a baking session.  


I've got a load of washing on too Fairy ... it's clouded over here but there's a stiff breeze so as long as it's not actually raining they won't take long to dry ... just a thin top and some underpinnings sort of stuff..


Hosta ...better eat some liver and kale to replace all that blood 


Morning Wonky ... glad you're feeling better ((hugs))

...or help him to prune his roses. Men are funny creatures even with cake.  


"I'll give you a hand if you like..." That kind of thing.


Good luck.

 Good point!  You're obviously a bit more tactful than me Pp
