Morning all.
Hope puncdoc has a good time - but doesn't meet your paramedic Verdun...
Once again, I dont know what's going on on here
Lovely day yesterday. OH completed his Marie curie charity bike ride. He cycled the route of tour de 'yorkshire' stage 2, (York to Sheffield), all 129 miles of it! Well done to him, so proud. His dad, older son and I followed the route by car from Holmfirth to Sheffield. tiring stuff all that driving and photographing!
Think it must be time to water the garden.
Have a good day

Its the OHs you need to watch! Doing diy to help you in the garden! Not.
Loved reading your stories on here.
Our trampoline is used for kicking and throwing balls, not jumping so that tends to give me a few more grey hairs when it comes over the net onto my newly planted area. My precious alliums, oh ho, please no beheading them this year (had a big problem with this last year!). Have allowed two dogs into my garden this year (never ever before!), one ate my daffodils and owner found it a bit odd how I reacted! The other gave me heart attacks but was in fact only sniffing so no damage done!
Yep, the garden still survives and thrives but its nice when they get older!

Kef, I've missed news about your dad but rather than go back to see, I wish you well and hope he's ok, best wishes love
OL its not THiS weekend is it?how exciting, enjoy the preparations.
Chicky, bless you, must be hard for all of you but of course your main thing is to look after your daughter. Love to you.
GW amazing! Pics of hot lips (calm down its a salvia), trollius ( whoop whoo, got one seed surviving and the original plant is just poking through - can't believe it!). What else in GW? Montys bit pot , can't wait to see it in flower but how does he keep it over winter? I keep trying cannas but not this year. Learnt and will apply nasturtium tips. Phew. Night all.

Panda, just dig out the grass - you won't regret it, promise, cross my heart and all that.
Rebecca, im watching on catch up, its on on Fridays. Great this week esp Joe at the show...hey im a poet... Loved the purple and yellow (yes I know I dont DO yellow, hmmm, watch this space) also with grasses. Liked the water feature of pipes on the back wall at eye level and sempervivums wrong the lawn - not sue how that keeps dry enough???
Lesley, I thought you was telling panda to plant weeds, bit of vino consumed.
Verd the astibille leaves are h- hurmmm - green (wry little smile trying not to be sarcastic at all).
Back to GW which I've had to pause when carol came on ...
