Good morning all 

Lay awake last night for about half an hour at 3am listening to tawny owls 

Bill, I'm so sorry about your garden - such a shame - I hope you can find a solution ((hugs))

Lily - have a lovely lunch with your friend 

Liri - new appointment sounds promising 

Niece and I are off to the Suffolk coast later this morning and won't be back until very late as we're going to a concert at Snape Maltings, but don't worry - I'll be back tomorrow for the cabin party

It happens some times - no probs.

I find cats tend not to use my garden when the soil is damp - another reason for regular watering

What the experts get wrong

That's why I like to grow some Heritage varieties - lots more flavour even if they can be a bit more variable than F1 hybrids in growth etc.

That's what I'll be saying on Sunday

I've got Terracotta too - it's fading now but you'll see it on Sunday morning, it's in front of the trellis by the front door

A small feeling of envy creeping in here. Have a good time folks.

When I first went to Beth Chatto's garden entry was  50p in an honesty box by the gate.

Given that it now costs a bit more, maybe it's us that should be envious
