Good morning all  G'day Pat 


Beautiful morning here 13.8C was the lowest overnight temperature (yesterday it got up to 27.1C) and the tomatoes are romping away.  I'll have to pot them on very soon.  


The bluetit parents are popping in and out of the nestbox by the back door and the nestlings are chirping inside and the trees and hedgerows are full of birdsong.


BL ((hugs))  so sorry about your friends. 


Lots to be done today, but not all in the garden ... I've a meeting down in Southwold with the vicar and I'm afraid that's going to take some time.  Don't want to carp, but couldn't Ma have chosen a time of year when there's less to do in the garden???
