been too hot today to do any gardening.. and even hotter in the greenhouse.. so just at and looked at it and thought about new borders and designs.

@margaret..i am with you there.. it is impossible to fully appreciate the gardens when there.. i wish we were able to wander round like they do on the telly.. it seems a bit of waste of time..if people cant actually enjoy them fully... it has gone very commercialised lately and i dont see it getting any better.. this is first year i have not been and have seen the gardens much better sat on sofa..

@palaisglide.. rape seed sets my hayfever off every time.. i am sure it is why more people suffer it now.. and the fact they do not cut the road side verges over here now until they are high enough to hide a man in.. normally with a speed came

@inkadog.. sounds lovely.. and your avatar shows that too.. My dad was born and lived in Canada all his life.. i was born there and moved here with my mother and siblings when i was about 4 when they split.. i used to go back and visit him yearly.. but as i got older and had family became more difficult.. my Daughter is out there now running his business now.. she loves it and will not come back here. (met a fella)

it is a beautifully outstanding country the scenery is breathtaking..

@palaisglide.. ha ha yes i thought it ws not the right outfit for her.. but last night (mon) she was much better dressed..looked gorgeous..

I am too wondering where the flowers are..very green and sculptural this year.. i think the weather has played a big part in what they have got to pay with this year.. as they had to start 3 weeks ago planting up..and some of my plants that are normally flowering now are not.

the only colourfulmoment was when the Chelsea Pensioners all gathered on Darmuids tower.. that was impressive site to me.. have had my photo taken with many them over the years.. such lovely people.. and htey really enjoy it.

my fave last night was the iris stand from France.. thou many of those were not in full flower yet.. they had some gorgeous colours i wouldnt mind getting my hands on.

i am recording it all so i can watch and skip witch bits i like.. best way i find to see it
