Morning all

On first inspection things seem okay outside, only a hollyhock to re-stake and lots of leaves about. Didn't think to look at the house

LillyP I echo Dove's post about your tree and hope you don't get a bill.

Soz to hear about poorly peeps hope all recover quickly. OL what you need is some time on a sun lounger and some good Greek beef stifado 

To those off to the salt mines, I hope the day goes quickly for you

What would be your perfect day.

I would wake to a lovely summer morning at home.

Sun out, road blocked off so no traffic noise, all neighbours on hols, having had gentle rain overnight all things would be nicely watered for the day. Grass would have been cut previous day and all weeding would have been done. Someone would have cut phoneline and my mobile would have been lost. Only downside no forum

I would float about in fine satin and inspect the garden and decide what bit of deadheading I'd do in my pretty white garden gloves. All the veg would have been harvested and if not eaten, frozen. I'd happily water in the GH's and then have a cup of tea in a fine china cup on the patio and watch the birds feed.

Then after showering, pampering myself and applying sun cream I'd ...... 

go digging, messing and getting dirty feet, nails and clothes. Bet those that "know" me thought I'd lost the plot with the above

Hard to just sit and appreciate your garden isn't it ? Wish we could all learn to do that.

OL you have PM.

Don't suppose you can split that fig three ways Dove

Weather has been drizzle, then rain, then a bit of sun. Now very dark, heavy rain and getting windy

Hope all have removed pots from walls and sheltered things.

BFN, going to put a cardi on  as it's now chilly

Good morning all.

Rained briefly at 9.30pm and again during the night, currently very still and light drizzle.

Got some tidying up to do, and some washing as it was very windy when we lit the BBQ so we all smelled as though we'd been smoked.

Sorry to hear about Dove's son's roof and hope it can be repaired quickly and at not too great an expense.

Lovely picture Lizzie

BM  Delete it.

I'll see you all later

Better safe than sorry, you can go another time.

Are you finding this is a poor season?

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 23:28

We have had good weather this summer in S.Yorks England but I've had a poor crop of peas, first to develop were good but rest poor.  They were planted into good soil conditions and well watered all season  Got runner beans and courgettes coming out of my ears

Good morning Lily

Good morning Dove No headache here as I have to prepare stuff for friends coming this afternoon.

Weather was awful last night it finally stopped raining about 10pm, a lot of roads were flooded and one friend had to try 3 different routes before she got to us. Supposed to be lovely and sunny today  but then gales tomorrow night and into Monday so I'll have to get some staking done.
