Warm, muggy day. Busy morning. Bright sun now and getting hot
called in at nursery today for another poker. Saw it yesterday and it was slightly below par so got a hefty reduction. However, its only real problem is that it has dried out because of being very rootbound. vigorously loosened roots and soaking now for an hour or so. (Ssssh! Flower buds are emerging so I think in a couple of weeks it will be absolutely fine and flowering)
Cornwall is full. traffic down here is horrendous folks. Our beaches are now closed because oil has washed up on all of them, we have an invasion of mosquitos expected to stay all summer, and rain is forecast for the rest of the summer. Ice cream supplies have dried up as have pasty supplies. All car parks now have a minimum £10 an hour charge. (). Trains and busses cancelled until September.
The north east is nice at this time of year
