Oh poo. I hit backspace and lost my typing.

Xfactor is clearly suffering from the dreaded creep and, like footy, will soon be inflicted on us all year round :- (

I tell people my eggs are 'Organic-but-I'm-not-allowed-to-call-them-that'.

Just watched extreme ribboning. You could have someone's eye out with that stick.

Kate, hoping for Dancing Queen and similar for you. I'd be joining in too. Have you considered taking a long ribbon to twirl about?

I was there paddling along for the Gee :- )

Kate, waves of sympathy washing towards you. Hope it's soon over. Unless you're the one who got married, it can be very dire.

Dragonfly day today. Saw huge stripy job dog walking on the common and smaller reddish job zooming round the garden. No damselflies yet.

Least likely event for me - flitting about in water head down, closely followed by riding a tiny bike very fast over many bumps and falling off.  Come to think of it, it could revolutionise the triathlon - you'd just have to add a 5000m sack race, or maybe hopping, and bob's yer uncle.

Hello Jo. Impressed with your morning's work. Flying ants, yuk.

I watched Lympics then went to hairdresser. Too hot outside for me so watching more Lympics, looking at furniture online and waiting to take dogs out when it cools down a bit more. OH and I have own TVs!!!! There are some evenings we don't see each other til bedtime :- )

Why do they look like this?

I'm by no means an expert but it's possible you've been much too nice to them! They generally grown best in soil that is not enriched. In your lovely raised bed you maybe have lovely new compost. Mine seem to like being chucked in a sunny spot and ignored!

Right, Gary fraise is French for strawberry. Similar to Latin name I suppose because French is derived from Latin.  Babel fish says that the Italian is fragola.

German is Erdbeere (I think that's the right spelling) - means earth berry. Precise and logical as one might expect!

Glyn, that's perfect. And I like tulips too - proper ones rather than blowsy frillies.

Jean, Geoff is i/c sourcing horseys so we''l have to wait til he's finished spoiling a nice walk.

Kneeling up in small wobbly boats this morning and leaning over to one side a lot - they must spend a fortune on osteopaths and suchlike. Gary, are we guaranteed wind?
