philippa - it's only taken me thirty years.....

I can lose stuff going from the house to the shed. I've lost countless pairs of seccies. That's why I never buy expensive ones

Thanks doc. I took a pic and unfortunately it looks quite white in that but it's definitely pink 'in the flesh' - and it taunts me every time I go out the back door ! Oh well. If anyone want two of them let me know ...

John - I daren't - it'll forget to go off! 

Off to drop daughter off to do her 6th year 'duty' at school. Back later.

Hot here but in a thundery way now. Sorry lily - I'd already gone to put washing out and  go to work when you said good morning to me 

Lovely pix John - garden's looking very smart as always. The herb bed is terrific - your new walls set it all off beautifully. My 'Duchess' has at last decided to grace me with her presence so I'll put a pic on at some point. Will have to take a pic of the new geranium renardii I got - which it definitely isn't - it's  'baby' sugary pink. Hope the nursery will change it. Does anyone here have it ? All the pix show it to be white with dark purple veining . I should just have got Kashmir White which I've had before. 

I hate to say it, but we could do with  some r**n....

Just a thought Alan - perhaps leaving the foliage on during the winter would have helped it a bit. I'm never convinced about cutting grasses of any type down in winter because I think some of them benefit from the extra protection it gives. If you grow some from seed you could do a half and half experiment!

Morning all. Off for a quick look to see what you've all been doing before I go to work. Too tired last night after being awake so early and a very busy day at work getting the last of the Highland order away- right to the wire. We had some strawberries and ice cream as a reward though 

Nice spuds Clari 

I need to do the same chick- always looking at  the stuff I need to do instead of enjoying what's there, although I did do a bit of that last night.

What's IPA Dove? It's probably obvious to everyone - but i'm old and not very well rested so I can't work it out...
