Afternoon all - You've all been very busy and chatty.
Garden is looking good Hosta and pleased to hear BL has made it to Norfolk safely.
Obx - sorry to hear about the problems with the paint. Somebody told me it could be a problem if you use good quality, high pigment density paint like Farrow & Ball - I think the pigment can settle if you don't stir it all the time. Love the colours in their range but usually take the colour card to the Dulux mixing station and get them to scan the colour and make it up in Dulux paint. Quite a bit cheaper and easier to use. You probably can't do that in France though.
I've been in the garden most of the day. Been rejigging the back border - moving stuff about, weeding, cutting back, fertilizing and finally mulching. Two thirds done - will finish off tomorrow weather and back permitting.
Desperate to cut the grass - it's up to the cat's shoulders in places - but the moles had a whale of a time under there just after the turf was laid and there are areas where it is very uneven and soft. Could do with rolling first and I don't have a roller...
There's a roller on the lawn mower so maybe I'll try running it over with the blades set to the very highest cut. Hopefully I won't scalp any large areas that way.
Enjoy whatever you're up to this evening
