Dove - I know nothing about footie other than the second hand info from two exes, but even I can work out that if teams pay gazillions of pounds for Luigi Ikickathebest from Italy and Pedro Passmetheball from Spain to fill up teams, it means home produced players don't get a look in. 

Anyway - I've had my boiled eggs so I'm off for now. Have a good day all.

I fell asleep last night watching G's W and Beechgrove - too hot and tired. Bit cooler today, at the moment anyway.

Just heading off soon so will catch up later. Happy Father's Day to all the menfolk - and of course I include you in that Verd  

Thanks for the hugs KEF 

Lovely surprise

Just lovely Bob 

I want one too nut - is there such a thing as hog envy?

Brilliant chicky 

My Constance clematis is about to flower again  These slugs and snails seem to have relentless appetites don't they? 

I can't be bothered having dinner but I should eat something- had very little today of any real value 

Been making a trellis and painting it so hope to get that on tomorrow. Lots of little things done but too late to go for more compost so will get it when I go to the  cemetery tomorrow. 

Verd - will you buy them from Trotter's Traders?

I've taken to stamping on the giant snails here - that way they are definitely not coming back! 

Lily - what is wrong with people nowadays that everything they do has to be at full volume  

Am I just getting old? 

Olives would struggle here as Lesley says - hope you have success with it  

Off outside again to see what else can be done before I have some dinner

Just in for a cuppa - lots of chat I see 

Many thanks for all the kind wishes for Fairylet -she's feeling much better. She's being such a brave little soldier...

Went to shops then got on outside. Looked like it was going to thunder but it's passed over. Makes my head sore. Could do with a bit of rain. Done lots of stuff but need yet more compost. My toms need putting in their final pots and I only potted them on last week. They've shot up suddenly. It's lovely when you see the fruits forming OL

My Daniel Deronda clematis is suffering at the jaws of slugs/snails  It also seems to have double flowers which is weird. I can never catch the little blighters when I go out - they're munching the Ligularia next to it and obviously just make a night of it while they're there

Girls are going to their Dad's later KEF so it'll be a baked potato or some kind of leftovers or toast for dinner

Is this a Clematis?
