Can't enlarge it, but looks like a Shag. I guess by sitting in the tree, it gets a better view, of its supper.

Agree about Joe Swift, unpleasant man.

I don't understand why having no horticultural qualifications is an issue, regarding MD. Aren't all of us who build a garden, designers?

PS. Don't forget 1st. Chelsea programme on soon, if that's your bag. I love it. Sadly not going this year, unless it is a surprise b/day present.

Hi all.

Lovely day outside, assisted by OH.

All the Canna pots are arranged outside now. No doubt they will be moved a few times, before I decide to plant them.

There is a chicken on the side, ready to be roasted. It is a bit of a stand off at the moment, which one of us is going to cook it.

I would also second Chiltern seeds, having used them for many years. Always try a few new varieties each year, then never have any room for the plants when grown.

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone.

Afternoon all.

Lovely day here, although very humid. It is one of those rare days, when OH has decided she would like to help [ 2nd time this year ], in what she calls " her garden ", where apparently I am employed as the hired help!

Am starting to place Canna pots, in a hopefully artistic manner, before digging big holes for them to go in. I am kidding myself, that I am designing a Chelsea border.

Nice KEF. If she does not get me a good present, I could always feed her to the big cats!

Agree with Dove

I also like them, but some regard them as a pest.

Hospital managers, are a very easy, and popular target.

I had the pleasure of working with many excellent managers over my career, and I am pleased to say, departments still have Matrons, many of whom, have put me firmly in my place over the years.

Many years ago, as quite a junior doctor, I was expected to turn up on the ward at 7 am., on the weekend. Matron gave me a list of chores to be done. If I finished all the chores, in the right order, and, to her satisfaction, she would cook me breakfast.

In those days, the ladies who cleaned the doctors accommodation, used to knock on my door, at about 6 am, ask whether you wanted a cuppa, and depending on what they could hear through the door, might say, ah, two cups this morning doctor!
