Liro how gorgeous, I can just imagine. I think you are going to be too hot to garden, best get a cool drink and enjoy the views!

Lily. I used to love a good storm until I got caught in one in Asia, we think we have thunder?!

fairy, totally unacceptable, I would defo let police know,local community bobby can warn before the start of the holidays 

we are heading down to London tomorrow to see newborn. OH will return Sunday but I will stay longer in the hope I can be useful  dil got really into her garden last year so maybe I can help there.  Hoping it may have cooled down by 9.30 when we get into Euston.

why did I ever think of knitting a shawl, it will never be on in this heat!

How did this happen?

that was such an interesting link, thank you. Actually Charlie you have reminded me of something I saw many many years ago which was exactly that with a little boy. Long before the days if genetic testing so caused a bit of a stir!

there is a clump of salmon pink  poppies about 20 ft away and perhaps it seeded. Weird tho

Can you see the pink flower middle right? All from the same poppy plant

This plant has been on for 6 years, never seen this before. Any ideas?

We seem to have three, no matter what we do it is always three! My theory is the local cats farm them! No complaints from us. I know people who do shoot them. It's not illegal, at least here it's not.  We installed rabbit fencing and net all gates . Every now and then one gets into the garden and we have a "hunt"' involves a glass in ine hand and singing "run rabbit run"

I wonder if you may have over planted? I do one surfinia to a 14" basket they do tend to get sticky especially when humid. I just spray with soapy water

I'd please
