Hello again,

I used to love Vesta meals. My dad was in India with the army and my mum had never heard of curry so used to sprinkle curry powder on his gravey.

Yes, Verdun, we've escaped so far but i heard the manager of 'The Watering Hole' (the only pub in Britain on the beach) and he said the water came up to 15feet away at last high tide and they may have to abandon the premises during the rugby next hide tide. my son-in-law always goes down to watch the rugby there and h

Good morning Dove, Clari and Stacey.

Gone back to bed with a coffee and wondering if I'll be able to do anything in the garden today.

High tides and heavy rain but the flooding hasn't been as bad in the coastal villages down here in Cornwall as expected.

Good morning all,

Thanks for your comments about my bumble bee photo. The honeysuckle still has leaves on the sheltered side of the bush, Chicky. One hydrangea in a sheltered spot still has leaves and flowers although the others are all bare with brown flower heads.

I watched the programme about dog food too, Lizzy.  Like you didn't learn much. My 11year old German Shepherd is a bit stiff now and can't walk far now. I've tried the really expensive dog foods for a few months but the programme seemed to suggest there wasn't a great deal of difference. The raw meat diet was interesting but that had it's drawbacks with samonella. I didn't agree with feeding dogs veggie and vegan diets. The programme didn't mention why dog poo doesn't turn white anymore.  That must be down to diet.

Hi Mark,

 I admit I don't really like French Marigolds buy I do plant them in the greenhouse with the tomatoes. They are supposed to keep whitefly away and I've never had it since .
