Back after my morning inspection, thought it was mild it's 17C. Forecast is max 15C and heavy rain, unless my eyes deceive me the sun is burning through.

Cumbers have got over their transplant sulk and GH toms starting to flower, outdoor toms have lots of flowers on

No sign of a blue poppy  Perhaps if I stop looking it will happen, as appears to be happening with lots of other things.

Today at M's got her re-cycling bin to fill and her Dave toms to deliver, they will live near back step so she can easily tend them. This is first year she hasn't had some in GH but too much for her. She usually has a courgette and some beans, but I can keep her fed

Good morning we've had some rain overnight, it has perked up the newly planted kale.

Hope sweetpea's leg is okay, she isn't here so must have managed to go to work.

Hugs for all the workers.

OL your GH looks smashing, healthy plants  You reminded me I need to sow my basil.

Clari I hope you find a new job soon, if not my shed wants painting

Dove I can't remember hearing a cuckoo since childhood, we've currently got magpie family making a din, young one is being shown how to dunk bread into the bird bath.

Fidget, during my long and exhaustive quest to have a blue poppy I'm sure that some start purple and turn blue, I'd be happy if they grew a flower and not just leaves. Off to look for your picture.

Have a good one all

Carrying a bin around if you run can count as 2 extra earned points OL.

I too was a bit wary thought chopped up slugs etc. Great that you've got them Vic.

Incredible luck

I've never seen a butterfly like that Jim. Wonder what they are, sure someone will know.

Not yet Lesley but it's tempting, lovely and warm & sunny, and they say rain & even hail later in the week.

Panda I have PM'd you 

Now best think of plan B as roast beef isn't an option.

PC a picture would help us, I haven't experienced something like black slime and I do have oriental  poppies. Any chance you could wash it off with a weak washing up liquid ?
