Good morning. Cool and grey here but not wet tho there's been a sprinkle in the night.
I think the mean have put the window too central and there won't be room for the shower which will run along the back wall with the cupboard for the hot water tank forming part of one of its walls. Need to get that checked and maybe fixed before they go any further.
As for planting plans, we are supposed, in a normal year, to get decent amounts of rain and less of the scorchio we had in May and June - http://www.holiday-weather.com/vendee/averages/ 75 cms or so of rain a year. We've had about 25 since mid Jan. The area behind the shower room has been graveled and is solid clay underneath so we always thought it would end up as a dry garden with Beth Chatto style planting after working the soil up.
AR - I had a whole collection of bone china tea cups and saucers, some with plates, Some of our older UK guests liked them for their cuppas and breakfasts and I did occasional tea parties for gardening friends. I kept a few specials but prefer a bone china mug myself for my coffees. Don't do tea.
Spot of cleaning this morning, then baking a chocolate beetroot cake for new gardening friends this pm and then lifting hostas till it's time to scrub up and get presentable.
I hope the storms forecast don't do you a damage this weekend.
