I missed that moon - slept too soundly - eventually.

Have a good day at work Dove - not too many to go now 

Don't think strawbs and weetabix will catch on at SW19 Gilly 

Glad we missed the wild winds yesterday some of you had- nothing that strong here although it was unpleasantly cold and wet. I'mhoping to get on outside later though my undergardener is going out for lunch with a friend. She never asked for time off..

Are they the big ones Gilly? Think I asked you the other day but you probably didn't see my post.

Never seen one - I'd probably run a mile! I'm a real coward when it comes to moths - silly I know. Stems from childhood. I'm trying to see them as just slightly duller butterflies - not sure it's working though! ....

New gardening programme

There was a lovely programme about Sissinghurst and one about Lawrence Johnston (Hidcote) giving the history and background of the gardens. I love those. I find it fascinating how people arrive at the design of these spaces and how they were influenced-not always by plants as such.

I don't want to see us separated either Verd- even though I sometimes joke about it. I really don't think it'll happen anyway.

Are you retiring Dove- you never said...

Dove- it's the way of the world now isn't it? It's a wonder anyone stays motivated in may jobs now when we see poor work rewarded and good work ignored.

B.Dragon still looking very black but not unfolding yet Verd...

Morning all. Cracking looking day to come. 

Well done Sue...

Our schools go back around third week in August chicky. That's when we get the summer here  They stop end of June for 7 weeks. My daughter's last day on Wed too - morning only. Do your strawbs taste specially good since you grew them?

Yes Verd - get clicking!....

Yes Verd- but Andy's on......Come on Mr Murray...

He's a Scot you know Verd....

What gardening progs would you want to see for two weeks then?

I loved Monty's Italian Gardens which was on last year (I think) but then, I'm biased 

Good Evening FORKERS

Woody - strawbs and cream - that's allowed! 

Dove- absolutely agree -though Geraldine M was good too.

Verd- you're on the naughty step for not doing Dove's grass 

No currants - or cake - for you ..

Look out for the lovely water feature in the Aberfeldy garden chicky. Beautifully designed and executed

Don't know it either Bev. Not so keen on Julia Mckenzie in the part but never mind -it'll still be fun! 

At least you're getting some nice weather 

Get your feet up!
