Inkadog: I am new round here. Which island? It sounds idyllic. Can one choose not to have any news containing the word 'football'? (Sorry all, but I am not a fan!)
I have just realised it hasn't rained for nearly two whole hours: I think it's turning into summer.
How long do leeks normally take to germinate outside? I sowed mine 10 days ago: I think they must be growing in Australia ....
Thanks: that seems like a good occupation come Friday tea time. it's still blowing like a tropical storm, but at least the rain's eased up. The May floods haven't all gone yet: we could do without more of the b*****s.
For brave read b. idiot. No permanent harm done, except to the philadelphus that got landed on. Just discovered Beechgrove happens in Scotland. Is it good?
Beechgrove - who they?
Sotongeoff: you're right - it's 'orrible here.
Went to sort out casualties (broken hollyhocks, roses all over the place) and got blown off my stepladder ... ouch ... just had a strong cup of tea, need a stiff drink.
I think your mum may be right
Veggie night tonight: ratatouille (the only thing from the garden is the oregano) with pasta and parmesan.
Off to town tomorrow to get holiday clothes: waterproof trousers and a sou'wester. Garden now in the 'completely wrecked' category: broken shoots and flowers everywhere and two smashed pots. Still, there's always next year ... I said that last year.
Yes, went to Eden Project last year (and the sun shone nicely). Thank you for the thought.
