I think our children need our help more when they are grown up, Frank.
Not a bad day here in Cornwall, a bit overcast but brighter this afternoon.
I hope Geoff doesn't get jealous when he gets back
Prefer the guy with the iron, Jean. The other one doesn't look strong enough to turn over my compost. That is my task for today.
Hope you enjoy the airshow, Flo.
Glad we have three more weeks of summer left, Kate.
I'm going to a car boot later, but I'm not taking any orders as you were all so disappointed when Geoff let you down.
Good morning all,
Lovely here in Cornwall but does feel cooler. There was an argument on the radio this morning whether today is the first day of Autumn.
My son and family came home yesterday from their holiday in Spain and they felt cold. I was in charge of their pets, guinea pigs and a hamster. Was worried about the hamster as she has outlived her lifespan but unfortunately the rabbit of some friends they went with went to the Ilysian Fields while they were away.
Hi Jean, I was listening to a garden programme and someone had the same problem. The gardening expert advised them to prune a third back to the ground every year and they wouldn't lose all the flowers but would keep the plant in check.
I think the weathermen say 'showers' when they are not sure what it's going to do.
Not too bad here in Cornwall. A bit breezy but at least it's dry. We have no yellow weather warning today which we've had for a few days warning about heavy rain.
Well done, Jess for growing kiwi seeds.
This is a photo of my kiwi. As you can see it's a bit of a thug. It was supposed to be self-fertile but although it has lots of pretty flowers, never had any fruit. The dog likes to make a den under it when the weather is too hot for him.
I sowed foxglove 'Pam's Choice' last year and it flowered beautifully this year but I didn't realise it was supposed to be perenial. There are lots of seedlings under it now and I collected more seed and scattered it about so hopefully the new seedlings will flower next year.
