Overcast and a bit blustery here today, but hey ho ... we'll still get the jobs done 


Why is it that unpleasant PMs, trolls and ne'er-do-wells always raise their ugly heads at weekends, and even more at Bank Holiday weekends?  It happens too reliably to be happenstance - they must have very little going on in their lives - we should pity them, I suppose .............. 

What's this little beauty?

i have a compulsion to buy and send postcards when on holiday - I've lost two of my usual recipients this year - I'll get some for your students when in cornwall next week :-)

Good morning all :). No packing done yet but I have bought new knickers - lots ;-) 


a few more garden jobs today, then packing tomorrow, resting Wednesday and setting off at the crack of dawn on Thursday. as I'm the driver we do the journey in two hour stints with stops for coffee croissants etc in between. It makes it quite a leisurely trip :-)


Great knitting Pat :-)

Fairy - OH says he's not got time before the holiday, but if you get the tools out we'll do a bit of a loop on our journey back from Cornwall and he'll sort your concrete out for you.  


Hosta, put your feet up ......... I've planted three of your grasses 


Neighbour has just been round - she'd got the dates of her holiday wrong - she'll be back the day after we leave, so she's had a guided tour of the garden and will feed hedgehogs and water anything that needs it including the new tree and the tomatoes 

I have a quandry

We had aphids on the roses but we've been watching the nesting bluetits collecting them and taking them into the nest box - now the chicks have fledged and have hoovered up any remaining aphids - none left at all and the roses look really healthy - no need at all for nasty chemicals

Poor Under Gardener - he was doing so well with digging the hole for the tree, then he hit a large lump of concrete - bless him, rather than change the chosen spot for the tree, he broke the concrete up 


Verdun's always been able to look after himself - I'm sure he'd be horrified at the thought of people sending unpleasant PMs sort of 'on his behalf'

Hello all   The Under Gardener has earned his roast chicken today - amelanchier planted, thoroughly watered and mulched, part of the veg patch dug over, raked down and sweet corn and squashes planted and both lawns mowed.  I have (very carefully) planted up the new sunny bed and my neck is ok - fingers crossed.


The chicken (stuffed with a lemon and a handful of tarragon from the garden) is in the oven
