Afternoon all. Too hot for me out there for doing anything energetic after work - just a bit of re potting, watering and deadheading. I'm going to take the girls out soon for something to eat (ice cream definitely!) and then go out in the garden as it might be cooler. Oldest fairy has just told me it was hotter here today than Florence.  Not sure why or how that's happened! It's usually high thirties/forty there in July  

Glad you had such a good result for last Saturday Woody. 

Will have a quick look round here to see what's been happening before I head out. Catch you all later

Morning all. Cloudy here just now but it's to burn off and be hot again.

I'd like to apologise on behalf of all 'normal' Scots for the abomination of that opening ceremony. If you missed it - well done -you did the right thing. Every stereotype thoroughly reinforced. 

Apart from the ballet sequence and Amy McDonald it was thoroughly embarrasssing. Can someone please put John Barrowman back on  a plane to America and leave him there?

Work for me too but will hopefully get something done outside later - apart from watering! Tomatoes are looking good so I'll enjoy those when they ripen. Ggirl - definitely get some toms in your growhouse next year 

Have a good day everyone, whatever you're up to.

If they're on  a memory card you might be able to retrieve them somehow but I haven't a clue about that sort of stuff. DavidK is the camera bod so he might be able to help you. 

I wonder if Panda has her cossie with her for a dip in the sea...or does the salty water affect her fur....

Red thread, rust or something else ?

I'm not an expert Peanuts but a picture of the whole area will help solve the issue, unless someone comes along with the answer right away for you.  I expect the long term flooding is the reason though.

Do you have a pic showing where those bits are Peanuts? Is it just a few bits here and there or in bigger areas, and are those areas different from other parts of your grass in some way - wetter, shadier, drier etc.

J3J- you have to tell him that the forum reading and nature studying is a vital part of the process to ensure the success of the plants you buy 

Do you think he'll fall for that?

Was Benedict Cucumberbatch in any of those films?.....

It's a little sparrow artjak. One of the young ones I think. He/she had a high old time - was there for ages  

Simple pleasures are the best aren't they? I could watch birds, bees and butterflies for hours. 

The buddleia looks quite blue in the pic chicky. It's  really more of a violet/magenta colour. Very rich - it's a new one to me and I love it.  I know they're common as muck but the bees and butterflies don't know that
