    another hot day, son and family called for lunch which was nice so have not got stuff done but not to worry, could really do with a bit of rain if anyone has got some to spare, hope your gardens are growing well, everything is looking good at the moment, could do with a magic wand to sort bindweed, goosegrass out, will have another attempt to…[Read more]

    • Good evening Jenny – we were pretty desperate for rain too, and had some overnight last night. Everything looked refreshed, but the ground was only damp for 1/2 inch, so not a useful amount. Am in the middle of hand weeding paths – scared to use weedkiller because of my awful cat which I am scared of poisoning (heaven knows why, he’s a real pain…[Read more]

    just having a rest? the one around here has stopped on a rock and once on the railings around the patio, magic experience, comfort myself in that they only take the birds they need to eat and feed their young

    morning all from sunny south lakes, bit of a breeze so far which is very nice, meeting friend for coffee shortly at Sizergh Castle, good look round the gardens first before coffee and it gets too hot, this weather has me thinking of 1976 – can’t be long before we are all urged to bath with a friend – didn’t do it in 1976 (very pregnant with first…[Read more]

    • Happily we don’t have a bath :lol: and good morning Jenny. I think we visited Sizergh…..horrible cold spooky interior, if I remember correctly, but magnificent rock gardens. Have a lovely time.

    sorry you’ve not been well FP hope the improvement continues

  • thank goodness for modern kale, my Dad used to keep a perpetual kale growing on his allotment and we had it when there was nothing else on the plot, disgusting, never seemed to cook even with Mum’s addition of a pinch of bicarb – why did people used to put that in greens.

    afternoon all, after a dull start its been glorious, planted up troughs and got toms sorted in greenhouse, lovely day all round, enjoy your evening all

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    greetings from grey and damp south lakes, bit cold to start with now almost sultry out there, so the sun is somewhere surely – getting sorted for visitors this weekend, beds made bit more hoovering etc. and we are done – enjoy your weekend folks

    • Have been outside Jenny, testing for “sultry”. Absolutely not. Autovent has not opened today, and top temp inside GH is 15 degrees – but at least that’s warmer than yesterday. Have a lovely time with your visitors.

    evening all, well another grey old day and it started so lovely too, just need some sun and some warmth – plants in the greenhouse are just sitting there – don’t blame them either, emjoy your evening folks

    • I can hear a low moaning if I turn the volume down on the TV – I swear it is the plants scratching their chilblains.
