Do you remember?

We used to fish for sticklebacks in the local brook. Many happy hours spent with a fishing net and a jam jar on a piece of string! Of course you had to dam up the brook first to get a good deep pool. As long as you didn't get a "booter" (a welly full of water), you were all right.

What is your weather like?

On the drive back from visiting Mum in hospital, (nice and cool in there),this afternoon, temps reached 34c. It's clouding up a bit now here in Bristol.

kermit, if it's anything like mine, you might want to keep it in check in the confined space of a balcony. I would train it along wires to cover the area you want then trim back as required but be careful that you don't cut back too much or you may not get flowers.

Was very dull and chilly here in Bristol yesterday but today summer arrived! I actually put a summer skirt on this afternoon when I went to visit my Mum in hospital. She was astounded!

Will we all be complaining that "It's too hot for me" and moaning about having to do so much watering in a few days?

Just to be clear, a Blue Peter spag bol is one I made earlier not one made from a washing up bottle, cereal box and 2 toilet roll tubes covered with sticky back plastic!

Good weather with lighter winds forecast today so a great day for solid gardening. Just managed to plant 2 Tumbler tomatoes, (at last), before Mum phoned to say niece, partner and, nearly 2, GGS were coming to visit. She can't deal with these sort of situations now so after a quick change and sandwich, I dashed the 8 miles to Mum's. At 3 o'clock there was no sign of them so phoned only to be told they were not coming after all!

Am now back home preparing a 'Blue Peter' spag. bol. in the hope of some evening pottering in the garden.

A good day here. A few spots of rain this morning but mostly sunny. So, at last, a full day of gardening: morning spent at farm garden planting spare courgettes and a tomato plus weeding. Also picked a 1l size ice cream container of raspberries.

Spent the afternoon in my own garden: cut down sweet rocket and made space to plant some cosmos and cleomes. Hope the slugs don't get them! Cut back some wayward honeysuckle/clematis over an arch and did some grass edging.

Hoping for more of the same tomorrow.

Pat, hope you get what you want with your voting and that it doesn't cause as much uproar as ours did!

I think you've sent your wind round to us as it's very 'breezy' here again today. Still, at least it's not raining...... , so out to catch up with the gardening
