Oh Thank you flumpy.  I will take some pics later.  That heather is lovely.  Today is going to be the hottest of the year so I have ditched my winter jumper for a long sleeved sweatshirt to do my brambling in.  I need my arms covered for that job.  My green wheeliebin will not take any more so will have to stack up the weed baskets till Friday.  We may avoid the thunder storms here at the weekend but it may be too hot for work outside in the middle of the day.  Time to think about early rising and evening work I think.My basket chair has been put in the kitchen ready to go out on the kitchen patio every fine summer morning.  Meals outside now - all of them, except when it is raining or very windy.

Lovely and warm in Bristol now and a veritable heatwave on the way.  I cannot see how to post pics on the new format!  Unless you have to click on the camera?

Oh GWRS Tenby must be lovely today.  It is like a summer's day in Bristol and I have worked for hours non-stop but took time out to get some photos.  The tulips are dying beautifully.

I had visitors yesterday so half my list to do in the garden did not get done but today looks like going to be fine all day so I should soon catch up.  Not that I ever do.  as soon as one list is finished another one has appeared.

Grrrr it is raining now but i cannot complain as I did get a lot done.  A beautiful dark brown fox was watching me cut down brambles.  I was not near his den so he was just interested.  I think it is a male but could be a large vixen.We are forecast to get some sun about four and 14 degrees or more so could have a late supper tonight and do some more.
