I've cleared a patch of grass for Lottie and Pam to pitch their tents and am debating what kind of cake to bake for their tea.

Glad you are going to Heligan, Lottie. I'm sure you'll love it.

Jean, that moth is amazing. It looks like Cody with wings I bet he is following Geoff around like a shadow. Dogs always know when something is up.

Definitely Heligan. They say most of the locals were conceived in Heligan gardens. Is that right Dan?

Watch out for the 'headache tree' near the bee hives in the wall.

Good morning all. It is starting to feel a bit autuminal, Geoff. Hope you enjoy your hols. We don't expect to see any photos of you playing naked snooker in your hotel room on facebook. We have standards to keep up.

I also puzzled,Kate, how Dan got his passport after only 5 years. Lived here 35 years and still not got one. We have to sneak back over the border when we go out of the county.

Sometimes feel sorry that William has to behave himself. Can't remember any bad publicity about him. It was the same with the Queen and Princess Margaret. The Queen never put a foot wrong whereas her sister was very much a party animal.

If you'd like a laugh look at 'pimmsgate on you tube. Not clever enough to post it on here.

Talkback: Glow-worms

I live in Cornwall and have an area of old mine workings close by. I still have one glow worm glowing every night. I only saw 6 at one time this year. I think once they find a boyfriend they stop glowing so I've still got one lonely glow worm.

 After I've washed the kitchen floor I  put a small amount of bleach in the water and pour it on the gravel drive making sure it doesn't go on nearby plants. Still have to rake it every 2 weeks or so, especially this year.

Jess is lovely. Good carrots.

Glad you are enjoying your heatwave. You'll be topping up your tan before your holiday,Geoff.

Kate, didn't someone run in the lympics with a broken leg? He didn't realise at the time but had some previous injury that didn't reveal it.

My son and family are on holiday next week and I'm pet sitting again. One of the pets is a hamster that's well over 2 years old. Just my luck for something to happen to it when I'm in charge.

What's the weather like in your area?

Rain in Cornwall, again!!

Frank I stayed with a schoolfriend in your area many moons ago and we climbed Roseberry Topping, lovely area. Her dad used to enter flower shows and we went to a show near there. One event was hound trailing and we could see the hounds following a scent over the hills and then being called in by their owners back to the showground. Wonderfull sight.

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.
