OH cut front and back this morning   and got the parasol out for the terrace and the sunlounger for the shade under the big tree - he and niece biked up to the fish van for prawns for a salad lunch and they're getting the BBQ out for later.  I've jointed and marinated a chicken and made a potato salad - everyone welcome


I've also pricked out the free tomato seed plants from T&M - the second lot germinated beautifully - and am just about to direct sow some sunflowers.

To expand on my preference for 'useful' rather than 'like' .......... I remember a time when one or two members (no longer around) actually got competitive about the number of 'reads' and 'posts' on 'their' threads

Oh yes, it's definitely an age thing

 I s'pose it's the same for falling asleep at concerts 


Re 'buttons'  - I'll go with 'useful' ....... less subjective and personal.

Yes, it spreads around by sucker and seed - as I said, often used to provide cover for game - just a few plants will fill a thicket pretty quickly.

Don't look at the lawn edges, just look at the colour ....... wallflowers and tulips thrown in last autumn when I had no time to do any proper gardening just so that we'd have some colour this spring 




As for heatwave ... thin summer duvet on the bed last night, windows wide open all night - sweltering now
