HELLO FORKERS!

Yep.  The thing is here because we've got two rivers converging in the city the storms always seem to go around in circles - just as you think it's gone away it comes back again.

Well, that's clear anyway 

Maybe it's just been getting it's roots down    We did have some frosts around flowering time - I had to fleece my gooseberries - maybe yours got caught?

A neighbour when I lived elsewhere had just such a wall in a teeny garden - she painted a mural of a lake, with a tree and rock fringed lakeside  and boats on the water - it sounds kitsch but it gave that little patch such light - she trained clematis up over where she'd painted the trees and grew lilies in pots in front of it and it worked really well.  We would sit out there for our morning coffee gazing across the lake to the far shores - it looked a bit like Lake Como

Of course not Clari - whatever gave you that idea????????? 

 

I've just had to come in from the terrace - the rain was diluting the gin 

 

Thunder and lightening too, so OH took the parasol down and we had to come in

Kef......Fairy....... Too early for Vino....its not Sunday. Doves says its only allowed early on a Sunday 

Forcast is rain overnight......if i don't water, it won't rain......if  i do water it prob will

Just because it's allowed early on a Sunday, it doesn't mean it's not allowed early on other days too!

It explains why a lot of us miss the small weeds - it's hard to weed with fingers crossed 

Tiger in the woods

I've not seen one for years - used to get them on the farm when we were children - Pa sometimes found a dead one - they're nocturnal and like damp areas so you might get one in a moth trap near your ponds Nut
