I'm totally choked up with emotion having seen the most phenomenal 10,000 metre world record run by that amazing young woman ... what a feat of courage, endurance and fitness!!! 

Digging Up Potatoes.... found an EGG!!

Maylane - sounds as if your frog was being eaten by a grass snake - I was able to get a photo of this happening in our pond a couple of years ago.  They eat them head first.

I've had to put the sprinkler on   the Wilderness and the veg patch all looking very floppy and the wind is bashing things about and tearing leaves - they need a drink to perk them up so they're not so flimsy.  


Topbird, the soaker hose has made a huge difference to the Clematis and honeysuckles on the fence at the back of the Shady Bank .

Just watched Steve Redgrave's face as he watched John Inverdale talking around and around in circles about the perfect  rowing four under the umbrellas, just after the camera caught him swallowing something he was eating - SR's face was a picture of total bemusement

I loved the brilliant quote from Sir Chris Hoy about Sir Bradley Wiggins, talking to him about when BW was a kid with long gangly legs, "... and then you got on a bike, and everyone said 'This kid's going somewhere'." 

A bit obvious, I'd have thought ........ a bike is a mode of transport


Garden Rescue - TV Programme

Topbird   presumably the prices of the jobs you've paid for contained an element of profit - probably about one third?  My thought is that the tv gardeners don't need to build their profit into the cost of the tv work as they presumable make money from the programme in some other way ?

Salvia greggii and Clem Daniel Deronda

Posted: 12/08/2016 at 11:24

I took some cuttings of the salvia (it's Trewithen Cerise) earlier in the year when I cut it back - they all took and grew on well and Wonky and Nut each have one and I've got some planted out in another bed - but yes, I'll take some more   along with some of the Salvia greggii Icing Sugar  


And plan to move Daniel late Sept/early Oct
