Sure you all been enjoying the weekend and this heat wave

Evening all,  just been spending time reading all the posts of what you have been up to what a busy lot.

Been busy sorting out more bits of volunteering at the train station - poppies are starting to flower now - had a little inspection today of the station garden from chief volunteer all ok liked what we have done there 

In the garden planting out lots of cucumber plants and courgette plants grown from seed and a few sweet peas after stringing up the canes for them to grow up, will add pics later
