That looks perfect.

have just watched a Goldcrest feeding 2 presumably just fledged chicks, on a branch of a Yew tree.

Acer's -need to get conditions perfect

Not an expert, but i do grow a few Acers. they need: semi-shade, not exposed to cold winds, and a slightly acid, woodsy soil [ leaf mould, ericaceous compost and some John innes No. 3 ]. Dont let them dry out, but dont drown them. Given that lot, they should thrive and act as a constant reminder of your dad.

Very hot out there today, have had to come in for a cool drink; too early for a beer I suppose.

Some cake would be very nice to have with my lunch.

Morning all Torrential rain in the night woke us up, so feeling a bit groggy today. Loks lovely outside now, so will get out soon. Am going to put the Morning glories out today, and that will be the last of the tender stuff outside.

Hope everyone has a good day, and that your weather stays good [ except for Verdun ]

The storm has passed, it is now sunny, warm and very humid, sadly perfect weather for our slimy friends, I am sure I can hear them munching even now.

Off to cook tea after a little drinky I think.

have a good evening.

Wow, a storm of biblical proportions has just hit. I was walking from the greenhouse back to the main garden, about 50 yards, and I now need a change of clothes. I think that might be the gardening done for the day.

Didnt manage to get the washing in, so OH will not be pleased.
