Sounds good Zoomer - we're willing to try most ice creams, in the spirit of research

but I'm not keen on chocolate or mint ice creams,  but any others ..........

Try again and this time ignore the error message - just wait and see if it uploads - there's a bit of a blip on the forum re pics at the moment but most of the time it works - if you just carry on.

....  Shame, because I love a good thunderstorm.

Oh so do I - fantastic

I was right, OH is back with the coconut and lime ice-cream - apparently we're going to have it in about an hour

I agree with Will.  Lilac is gorgeous when it's in flower - there's one in the garden opposite here and for about three weeks each year it's a picture - then for the rest of the summer it's a green blob and in the winter it's a rather unattractive twiggy bundle.

A multi-stem birch would be lovely there, but they're a bit pricey. 

A rowan would be lovely, flowers in the spring, leaves in the summer, berries and leaf colour in the autumn and a handsome outline in the winter - and it would be great for birds.

Was the power surge due to a storm?  There was some bad weather forecast for your area today .

OH has just popped down to Waitrose on his bike for ice cream - he says we need it - with any luck he'll come back with the coconut and lime one - have you tried that?  It's wonderful

It's been warm and sticky here Nut - nearly 27C this afternoon, nearly 22C at the moment - OH has just gone down to Waitrose on his bike to get us some ice cream

Hoping for some rain later on tonight ...

Oh dear Hosta - that sounds an absolutely terrible day ((hugs)) Enjoy your Old Speckled Hen -  is there a second?  Think you deserve two.   My OH likes an Old Speckled Hen from time to time  but this evening he's having Badger's Golden Champion

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
