Morning Lesley

Good morning all - slept in a bit   it must be that Panda borrowing my body clock 

Another gorgeous morning, full of dancing shadows and birdsong   

Have just heard from a friend in N. Germany about horrendous storms and several people killed!  She was away from home and using public transport to get back - it was chaos and from the sound of it very dangerous too!  Apparently the storms are moving south - I do hope they die out before they reach Belgium and Obelixx 

Still only one of my runner beans has surfaced!  Hurrumph!  Time is getting on! 

The problem is I wrote down what I'd sowed but for some reason I left the date blank 

The seeds I used were from a pack opened last year, but within their planting date and normally that wouldn't be a problem - I put the sprinkler on them yesterday to give them half an hour's soaking - I hope that does the trick.  If not I shall be looking out for some plants ........hope the GC doesn't sell out quite yet ...........

Stick your finger in the compost - if it's dry under the surface give them a good soaking.

Dove, will you babysit a Fidget plant for me?  Could pick it up in July if we meet up? 

 Course I will 

Remind me again in the next few days and I'll have a look at the East Ruston website and check  their days and times - then we can start planning - it's good to have something to look forward to

Mich -  when you get your computer woken up you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions.  If it doesn't work give us a shout

Used to have ride and drive types - cobs and Natives - and friend had a Shire x Irish Draught - a lovely chap - so gentle.  I also used to ride friend's Haflinger - she used to pull one of the carriages on Yarmouth seafront - totally bombproof
