Evening all, back from sunny cornwall, drive home was a Nightmare! left at 10.15 this morning and got home at 5.45. 

As we left the heavens opened so well done Verdun for keeping the rain at bay until we started home.

Haven't read back but hope everyone is OK.

Evening all, just popped on to say high.  Verdun has done well with the weather, it was georgeous again today.  Spent the day on the beach with a picnic and lots of ice cream.  This evening we all went out for a meal to celebrate the fact that today I am one year closer to the magic 27. Hope the weather holds out for tomorrow then its back home on Friday to make sure the garden is fine and that the irrigation system has kept everything well watered.

Evening all, busy day today, Padstow this morning (had cornish pasty for lunch and lovely cornish ice cream.  This afternoon was spent sitting on the beach at Constantine bay in the sunshine, little ones paddling in the sea.  Then drove to Port Isaac and had a meal at The Mote, a fish restaurant right on the sea shore.  The weather is still georgeous Verdun, so far so good.

Hi everyone from sunny cornwall, just seeing what's going on.  Verdun has kept true to his word so far.  Grandchildren were paddling in the sea yesterday collecting shells.  Today we are off to Padstow and Port Isaac

I've chopped back one of my geranium because it was really tall.  I've trimmed back a a few stems on two rambling roses that were getting a bit wild.  I've took a couple of stems out of some delphiniums that were already very tall.  That's about it. Everything else seems fine.

Yes I do like JT but I think there is someone on here who is mad about him, they went to see him last year.

Doesn't look like I will get the lawns cut, it's raining here now and very cloudy.  Hubby has taken grandchildren out for a while so that Firstborn and I can have a catch up over a cuppa.  Don't know where he's taking them but I assume it will include E numbers.

Morning all, grey and a bit drizzely here.  Not cold though.  No damage in the garden today although there are quite a few pigeon feathers floating about. 

Feeling really tired today, have to get ready for Cornwall and grandchildren and Firstborn are coming over to see Nanny Sticks (my mum, so called because she used to use two walking sticks when she was mobile). 

No gardening planned for today apart from giving the lawns a quick once over weather permitting.

Last of the chelsea coverage to watch, must say my 'plant wish list' has certainly grown over the last few days.

Hope everyone has a good Sunday.
