Sorry I am late, stopped off at the pub, to make sure the hair gel looked ok. I thought a mohican for the night

A beer and a little Scotch to start please, and some Cashew nuts would be good.

Who is on music duty, I fancy a dance.

I think Nut is right, the central disc is not right for Rudbeckia.

Morning all. Very grey here, rain later. Supermarket done. I can only cope with it when it is empty.

All beer and cider bought, plus snacks, heading off for the cabin soon. Bought some earlier in week, but someone drank it.

See you all there.

Thanks for the compliment BM, but among the many talents I do not have, understanding french is one of them. On a good day I do english.

I see you girls are getting a bit naughty, I shall have to revisit my dream of Kylie in her gold hot pants helping me with the weeding.

Get that bottle open, I am ready for a drink.

Morning all. Beautiful and sunny, after yesterdays rain, the garden feels fresher.

I have a long list of things to do in the garden today, but at the moment am filled with a feeling of lethargy, so it may be a sit and watch day.

Congratulatios SGL. on your first day of freedom. Here to many more of doing what you want.

Have a lovely day everybody, its nearly rhe end of the week for the workers.

Hi all. Been to the Botanical gardens today, and they were lovely as usual

Then had a nice walk up to Forge Dam [ for those that know Sheffield ]

Bekkie, I have not been Alnwick, but have seen pictures and it looks lovely.

I really struggle to grow bearded Irises and I dont know why. I do all the standard things, but rarely get flowers. Any ideas? Could it be my slightly acid soil?

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone.

OL, though I am not keen on admitting it Dolly Parton was amazing. She can certainly put on a show.

Reliable website for ordering bulbs

Rose Cottage Gardens have the best bulbs that I have ordered. They also do fab. Dahlias.

I agree Lyn that while I dont like Parkers for plants, their bulbs are good and cheap.

DD, they never seem to look quite the same as in our heads do they? Some days I love my garden other days I hate it.

Fg, I have just seen those poppies, absolutely amazing.

Dove, I love Cromer, although it is years since I have been. Still love a crab sandwich.

Enjoy your evenings.
