Why Amsterdam, Geoff? Was your mam-in-law Dutch?

We scattered my mam-in-law's ashes in the sea near us. We went down some steps at high tide with the sea lapping at the bottom of the steps and scattered the ashes and threw som flowers on the waves. To our horror two surfers came behind us and plunged straight into the sea not realising what they were swimming through. It did lighten the mood afterwards though.

There has been lots of records smashed in these games. There was a lot of talk about the young Chinese swimmer and even suggestions that she had had gene therapy but I didn't hear any murmers when the American swimmers broke records and they have'nt been exactly innocent in the past.

I must live within 15 miles of Doctor 63 yet no rain here or yesterday in spite of a yellow warning. No wonder the weathermen can't always get it right. 

Geoff, be careful, you might be sniffing a banned substance.

Thanks Jo. I'll dig them up and replant in a bottomless pot. I've never protected them over winter. they survive but the leaves go mushy and then regrow with lots of thin leaves so I'll put some dead bracken over them this year as I do the dahlias.

Geoff, I'd like to think the big cats are out there.

Those team buses should do nicely. Dean.

Have we got a pilot for the team jet? I once had a lesson in a glider and if flying lessons could come out of the team funds I would like to volunteer for that.

We haven't any white tigers in Cornwall or any other colour although we do have 'the beast of Bodmin' which comes in black or occasionally brown. I'm sure Kate would have seen it or heard it howling round her parent's cottage on the moors.

I think the White Tigers got their nickname because their strip is white with yellow stripes.

Thanks, Geoff. I thought I might have to do that. Have we got our physio sorted out in case I do my back in. I want to be fit for the season.

Isn't Truro White Tigers in a bit of bother. If we bought that club you could all come to my house for tea.

Good afternoon all,

Still waiting for the heavy rain that was forcast for this afternoon. Even got a yellow warning.

Been wondering the best way to treat my agapanthus. I've got five clumps, two in pots and three in the ground. Only one of the pots has flowers and of the clumps in the ground there is only one with just one flower. I understand they like to be pot bound. I've never fed them and they are left out over winter.

I read Geoff's post about his neighbours neglected plant so should I dig mine up and replant in pots in the ground?

What's the weather like in your area?

We've got a yellow warning here for heavy rain. Spent an hour this morning giving all the plants in tubs and the geraniums in the ground a feed  of phostrogen. Some of the geraniums in one part of the garden have yellowing leaves with green veins. Some sort of deficiency. I will look it up to try and find out a solution.
