The jet stream is moving at last. Sorry Jennie.

I thought you had a loft of pigeons, Kate, that delivered gifts to your friends, although I must admit they have never made it to my house.

Hope you enjoy your golf, Geoff. My 11 year old grandson got a birdie at the weekend. His dad was very impressed. I'm not sure if it was a pigeon or a seagull.

Sorry, Kate, you have missed the Cornish Summer today. Sunny all day but back to rain tomorrow.

July in the garden!!

Hi Yarrow2, Could it be quaking grass (briza)?

Careful,Jo. I got bitten by a young squirrel that I rescued form my dog.

Hi FloBear, I think your dogs were brave because you didn't mind the thunder. I'm sure they pick up on our feelings. They said on the radio this morning that cats and dogs were getting depressed because of the weather but my dog is happier in the cooler weather even if I'm not.

Another one of the chickens gone broody. Do you think they go broody when they are happy and think it's the right time to raise some chicks or because they'd rather sit on the nest all day and keep out of the rain?

We've got a yellow warning in place. Had some heavy showers that lasted a few minutes, got me both times when I took the dog for a walk, but it's sunny in between. We had a red warning a few days ago.The first time ever here, apparently, but it wasn't any worse than any other day. I do feel sorry for the people who have got flooded. A lot of them say that it has never happened before in their area and they are not on the so called 'flood maps'.

, Thanks Geoff for the advice about the photos. I'll have a go. I just about managed to upload photos on the BBC site.

It must be frustrating waiting for parcels. My porch is always open so most drivers leave parcels in there for me or my son who lives next door.

Talking of parcels I sent for some dried lavender to make pillows etc. It arrived within a day from Amazon and I made a pillow yesterday. Lovely to wake up to the smell of lavender this morning..

Good morning all,

Another popper-inner here. Still raining on the Cornish Riviera. (I hope Kate is okay)

I saw a blackcap eating the last of the red currants,Jo. The blackbirds had the rest but thankfully they seem to leave the blackcurrants and raspberries alone.

Not many butterflies this year but I've seen glow worms and a lovely big grass snake under a sheet of corrugated tin. I managed to take a photo of the snake.When I've tried to put photos on here I get a message to say my file is too big. Do I need to go on a diet?

Hi Jo,

Hope you are doing okay. My daughter told me to mix icing sugar with bicarbonate of soda and the ants take back to their nests and it kills them off. I've tried it and don't seem to have too many this year.
