Hi Inkadog, Interesting about peonies and ants. I often see ants on the buds but just assumed they were after greenfly. I don't know the name of my peony buts it's pink with a lovely perfume. One year the buds didn't open just turned black. maybe there were no ants that year.

Geoff, if it's not too much trouble could you please bring me back one of those big straw donkeys. I will pay for it COA.

I hope you are safely on your way now Koala Girl. Enjoy your holiday.

Lovely day here in Cornwall. Best time of the year. Everything is so fresh and green.

I found 5 self sown seedlings of Clematis Montana in the gravel near the parent plant. I'm sure if I collected seed and tried to grow it I would have no success. I potted them up and they have put on about 4 inches in a week. They were under the pink one 'Elizabeth' but there is a white one near so it will be interesting to see what colour they are. Love plants for free.

Lovely garden Wintersong.

Watched a programme last night about 'the Worlds Scariest Flights'. I hope none of you travellers saw it!!!

Geoff, my son is a manager for a tool firm and won the China prize for the best sales figures. He won a trip to San Diego two years ago and a few years before that to the Monacco Grand Prix.  He never went to university and wasn't too interested in school at the time but most of his friends that did go to uni have dead end jobs.

Still no rain here as was promised but did do some decorating. The weeds will have to carry on growing for another day. There is a thrushes nest, a flycatchers and two wrens nests in the garden so have to stay clear of some areas.

Geoff once told me that mice taste like chicken so I wouldn't be tempted to try slugs either.

Where is Cody spending his hols, Geoff?

My son is flying to China from Heathrow on Friday so you might see him there. It's a prize he won through his work. He has to face on operation on his thyroid when he comes back so has spoilt it a bit for him .

Good morning everyone, Lovely photos. Supposed to be a wet day here in Cornwall but lovely warm sunshine at the moment. Had planned to do some decorating indoors today but tempted to garden instead. It will probably pour down as soon as I go outside.

Hope Jo is okay. I haven't seen her post lately unless she's changed her name.

Enjoy your hols Geoff and Kate.

Oh, painful, powwow!

I never thought about having the mice on toast and have already burried them. Do they have to be hung for a few days like game? If so I could resurrect them.

I'm with Inka on the cleaning. Do a basis tidying up  every day but save big jobs for gloomy days. However started painting the kitchen yesterday so will have to continue today.  Still the weather not much better.

Hi everyone, good to see you all here. Hope I'll be able to find you all again   

Weather is stormy here too so no excuse now  not to start painting the kitchen but much rather be doing jobs outside.

I feel a bit mean as I've set a mousetrap in the greenhouse and caught three mice so far. I was blaming slugs for eating the tops of cosmos seedlings but begonia plugs had completly  disappeared too so i think mice are the culprits.  Do feel sorry though when I see the dead mice.
