Beautiful day.  Wall to wall sunshine.  

Hey!  My ears are burning!  At least Susan is (rightfully) respectful ....I am indeed SIR Verdun.  In my own mind I am deserving of that title .  Not Welsh.  Cornish with a touch of Aussie.    g'day dreckly 

busy this mo but will soon move a few plants. 

Careful Punkdoc with your "evil intentions of retribution".   I empathise but better to enjoy your escapism via garden visits, etc.

Dove, sorry to tell you but Father Christmas passed away over the weekend after a sleight accident

grew great clumps of agapanthus years ago in good rich soil and they flowered like mad.   Never really convinced when I read they should be congested to flower well. I replaced them simply because they took up so much space.  Down here fields of blue agapanthus can be seen...growing uncongested?

The last time I had those computer scan calls I sang a silly song....on and on and on.  Trouble is they rang again.  And again.  And again.  And again.  "Sing that song again" the guy said.  Lost my temper.  And they kept ringing.  Had to get them blocked by Talk Talk and investigated.  

Thought I was very clever.  Thought it was  funny.  So..lesson learned.  Best not to answer or say you don't have a computer.

so warm again......almost hot in the garden as I worked.  No wind either.  Supposed to be dry for quite a while too   Glorious spell .  

no, Runny, not born out there but was there from about 3 to about 9 I suppose.  Had a real aussie accent for several years.  The girls seemed to like it. Neighbours, etc., on the box so an aussie accent was so different.  Three brothers all as blond as milk, tanned and, well, different.  Kept that accent well into my twenties.. Sorry Pat....still want us to beat the Aussies
