Sorry about your OH, Kate. My daughter's car was written off about 10 years ago by an uninsured driver who had driven his mam's car without permission. He took off across the fields with a broken leg. She claimed through the Motor Insurance Bureau  which compensates people who are involved with uninsured drivers, so if your Oh doesn't get any joy with the other driver that may help.

Raining again in Cornwall. Glad you further east are enjoying some good weather. I think I might try growing rice next year.

Thanks for your welcome back,Geoff and your comments about my fox photo,Jean.

Sorry Geoff couldn't fulfill your orders from the carboot. I feel he is putting himself under too much pressure. He is already helping us out with gardening problems, IT and fashion advice. He deserves his holiday. I forgot menu planning.

Hi Gary, my chickens don't think it's lucky! but I must admit I do like to see them.

Thanks, Kate. I enjoyed not haven't much to do, just reading and watching the wildlife.

Watched GW last night. I thought Monty looked a strange colour. Someone once described it as 'hangover p""s shade. Liked his pond though.

Later watched 'Boy in the striped pajamas'. Very moving.

Good morning all. Good to be back with you. What have I missed?

I've been staying in a caravan while I let my cottage out. This is a photo of a tiny fox that was hoping for a chicken dinner. I felt sorry for him, he looked so confused but I suppose in a few weeks he'll be big enough to be a real threat to the chickens.

Be with you all next week. Hope the traffic is okay. There might be the odd chicken in the way.

Glad you won Becks.

Play nicely while I'm away boys and girls.

Thought I should show a photo of the holiday accommodation. I might throw in some eggs if they are still laying in February. Can't guarentee that the weather will be as hot as it is today.

Lovely flowers Geoff. I'm jealous of your agapanthus. Are the others lobelia cardinalis and goats rue?

Meddling means something else too.  Didn't they use cupping to draw poisons or evil spirits out?

I'm not going very far about 100yards. I let my cottage out for a few weeks so retreat to a caravan in the chicken field. No broadband or telly but I quite enjoy it. nothing much to do except read and listern to the radio. I shall miss all your goings on.

Will football teams and golfers etc. be cupping in future?

I'd like to put in my leave of absence form from 10th August to !9th August.

Any holiday pay due please send to usual address.

Maggi, I had 4 big clumps over 10 years old. The bronze one that is not supposed to be so hardy. Two died in different years for no apparent reason. The leaves still looked alive but the roots rotted off. They weren't in wet conditions.They do get dead leaves underneath and I pull them off in the Spring. I've got one flower spike on one of the remaining ones. They seem to flower better in hot summers.
