Glass of wine has been drunk here - now pretzels are being nibbled while we listen to David Attenborough talking about bats.
A couple of years ago we were invited to the grand opening of an exhibition of the art of the South Pacific - David Attenborough was the guest of honour and at one stage we were placed very close to him. He has the most amazingly beautiful skin. Being so close to him was nearly as exciting as being very close indeed to a troop of Maori warriors performing a traditional Haka ... an experience that will remain with me for a very long time indeed
There are some old varieties of pelagonium (used to be called geraniums) which grew tall and could be trained on wires up the inside brick walls of conservatories. orangeries etc - they were kept frost-free over the winter and never cut back (although trained and pruned like a climber). A friend who was head gardener at a stately home had care of some beauties which probably dated back to Victorian times.
I'm sure there are the descendants of those old varieties in many gardens and on many windowsills. It sounds as if you may have one of them
Cuckoo spit and the little frog hoppers inside it really won't do any harm and neither will the shield bugs
Cat's aren't really that bright Nut, they're just good at convincing us they are
Supper here is jacket tatties and spare ribs - the tatties are in the oven and OH is having a nap while they cook .
Hello folks! I'm home and the garden's been inspected - chillies needed watering but everything appears to have survived another day of sunshine - even me
Pa had been a bit poorly - think the heat might be a bit tough on him - they've got the windows in his room wide open and that's fine, but when everyone went through to the dining room I think he felt the heat - but he looked a lot better at the end of the afternoon Ma was fine and chatty - had I seen her mother lately?
The auction went well - I was bidding on son's behalf and he was very pleased with the result
I've had a read back but wasn't taking notes so if I send everyone ((hugs)), , and can you help yourselves to whichever is appropriate?
