You all have your priorities sorted down there Hosta.

Morning all - foggy and cold start but forecast to be sunny and el scorchio later (well 17c)!

Another couple of hours in the garden later on I think.

Sorry to hear about the lack of progress for the family Lily P - may still be time - fingers crossed Hope pooch is ok.

Ouch Obx - take care!

Second hand Lily P - but you're right - need to be aware.

BL - only trying to shortlist possibilities at the moment - not spending any pennies just yet.

Ford B Max and Kia Venga seem to be ticking a few boxes.

Best wishes to you GWRS - hope you're making a full recovery

Boring day looking at cars today - possibly my least favourite activity after cleaning the oven. Needs must - we'll probably change OH's car later this year so need to know what would be a suitable replacement.

Off to see if I can see any meteors / auroras - supposed to be a good night for it.

Sleep well everybody (positive vibes for you Hosta - zzzz)

Loving all the pussy cat tales (tails? )

Enjoyed Uni Challenge but the questions tonight were harder than a hard thing! Even Jazzer was impressed by some of the stuff they knew. Although he always is impressed when they get maths and physics questions right - and it is patently obvious that he didn't even begin to understand the question he just read out

Can't decide if my favourite contestant is MONKMAN or Bobby Seagull

Probably too far south for much celestial activity - but might just have wee peek. Bet the owl will be out there too.

Evening everyone

Was dragged to Ipswich to look at cars today  - we will be changing OH's little sports car for a more practical mid-size car when he retires in the autumn - so we needed to go and check out some potential makes / models.

I behave in car showrooms like OH does in GC's - lots of fidgeting, sighing, looking at watches etc etc. One day I will start to act my age and not my shoe size - one day - maybe

Nice trees LB and I love the sound of all those roses in BL's daughter's garden. Sounds like a little bit of England in France. Obviously takes after mum!

M-U - have to agree with you on the Dr Beckmanns. It's the only stuff I've found which really works and is dead easy to use. We have pale beige carpets throughout and with a gardener, a cat and a red wine drinker in the house we need something good!!

B3. I have a few 'artistically placed'  logs in my woodland style border. There is a bit of ivy starting to cover a couple of them which looks quite nice - & it doesn't seem to mind dry shade too much.

Sorry - I've forgotten everything else I've read so I'll just wish you all a relaxing evening. Uni Challenge for the Brainiacs

Oops - late to the party again.

Sorry you're leaving us Hazel - hope nobody has upset you.

Time for bed. Night everyone - sweet dreams.

Few more hours of work done in the garden. Got quite warm in the sun but once the sun moved round it was decidedly chilly. We're obviously close enough to the east coast to be affected by the same breezes as Dove.

'Making' lots of new plants as I go - although none of them are that exciting - just space fillers. I know  a couple of more reasonably priced perennial nurseries in the locality so I shall be paying them a visit soon.

Love Joyce's pressie - those closest to us know what really makes us gardeners happy don't they? - much better present than chocolates and flowers (although those would be welcome too!)
