Looking forward to the tiara Hosta   ............ and the curry 

Runner bean seeds are in their grow tubes and  are now sitting in the warm studio awaiting our return when I fully expect them to be sprouting nicely 

Bird feeders are all topped up, lupins and other wayward types have been staked/restrained and the garden is in as fit a state to be left for 10 days as it could possibly be.  Our neighbour will water the tomatoes, keep an eye on other plants and help herself to broad beans.  

OH has fixed the loo cistern which had suddenly become temperamental and refused to re-fill properly - he is now clearing up the kitchen and will tidy the living  room while I drink a coffee then go and pack -he is my hero 

Homemade leek and potato soup is simmering on the hob for our supper 

SAGE flowering problem

It seems quite early for sage to be blooming ... could the flowers have been frosted?

We're all flummoxed about that one Hosta

Welcome to Sunshine and Poppyred   

Miserable weather here today, but not as miserable as yesterday's.  

Just got to get the little greenhouse ready for neighbour to keep an eye on, and fill the bird feeders - then that'll be all the outside jobs done .......

Thanks for all the hugs folks   No further news of Aunty B ...

Am going to try to take it easy today as we'll be off at first light tomorrow - just got to pack and leave things (hedgehog food, hosepipe etc) ready for neighbour.  OH has set off on his bike as he saw a nice shirt and some shoes yesterday but didn't get them - he has pondered and is going back to buy them. 

Hosta, don't go overboard .... we are only minor royalty

It looks cold and windy out there. Can someone push the rain this way a bit. We've not had enough to wet the ground. I could do with the runner bean bed being well watered before I plant.

See original post

 Happy to nudge it in your direction Fidget - I need to get outside ... it's my last chance before we leave ...
