Afternoon all, Shame about David K. The photo side of things is pretty pants on the new forum, not good, especially as it's one of the things we all wanted improved. We have to upload poorer quality photos and can't get as close to check out the plants as we used to be able to. ID'ing things is a real casualty of the upgrade.
Really hot here, I'm having to go out a do a bit of gardening and then come in for a cool down. Hubby is out basking on the sun lounger, don't know how he does it.
House is an absolute tip but can't be bothered with house work it's just too warm. Not that I'm complaining, it's about time summer arrived.
Firstborn is off to their villa in Menorca for a month on Friday so no grandaughter cuddles for a very long time will need to make the most of tomorrow (my last day on Nanna duty before they go). Nevermind I'll have more time to spend at Secondborn's cuddling baby grandson.
Cut loads back in the garden today. It looks so much better for it. Discovered a couple of plants I had forgotten about under the early summer perenials. Think it's been a great year for roses so far, but geums and delphiniums haven't done as well. All my alstromeria have been eaten by the army of slugs and snails that have invaded the garden this year, never had so many
DD, don't worry about leaving your garden, creating a new one will be fun and I'm sure you and Charlie will enjoy it. Look forward not back.
Clari, it looks like you are going to have to eat a lot of ice cream if the freezer is on the blink.
