The red arrows flew over my garden once.  Goodness knows where they were going.

Currently stuck in the conservatory listening to drizzle on the roof and wishing I could be in the garden.

I tell a lie - this is the 5th year.  I am hoping for a repeat of 2010

Yes I am going to Hampton Court.  I loooooove Hampton Court and this will be my 4th year in a row.  My friend and I drive up early so we are there before it opens and stay until they kick us out at night.

I've had three meals out of my potato sacks so far.  I usually only grow Charlottes but this time have also grown Lady Cristl.  The Charlottes have been better so far.  I just keep having a good rummage in the sacks and pulling out any that feel big enough. Mmmmmm

Lovely sunny evening when I came home from work but it is looking a bit overcast again now.  Keeping my fingers crossed for good weather at Hampton Court next week.

May go and pick some more strawberries now....

I thought at first that was a dead hedhehog-good job we don't have smelly vision.

Is Neil Morrisey made up or are we both just getting old?

I think we are getting old  

I was mowing my back lawn at 9pm.  Suddenly realised that people may think I was odd.  Then again, they were probably all inside watching football.

That looks awfully familiar so I do not hold out much hope.

BTW, do you remember those bare rooted strawberries which I planted a few weeks ago?  I was picking berries from them this morning.  I should have taken a photo before I picked them. 

Red Flowering Currant -Dying -Why?

That is exactly what happened to mine at about the same age.  I don't know what happened but I couldn't stop it.  I cut off all the branches which were dying back but it didn't save the rest of the plant.

Geoff I had a wonderful flowering currant which suddenly died a couple of years ago for no apparent reason.  This is what it looked like 3 months before it died.


I watched Line of Duty last night and thought it was v good.
