  • morning all, damp and grey here, sort of warm or should I say humid, its amazing I’ve not gone rusty really, it looks like a tan but not too sure – final coat of paint on porch walls to do but not today, recovering from up and down step ladders today – creaky or what?
    enjoy your day folks, after bit of food shopping going to have to find birthday…[Read more]

      definitely a north south diuvide I think Anne re the weather, my sister in Essex complains about the heat, I reply re the cooler conditions and often wet ones up here ha ha could be in different countries never mind countys
        • Am with your sister Jenny … it is too hot for comfort as far as I am concerned and I can’t collect enough rain water to feed GGH and some of the plants don’t like tap water… can’t win can we :lol: Have a lovely day in your new[ish] garden :-) :good: :rose:

          morning clickers, rain and more rain again – car gone in for MOT, fingers crossed, took it for a longer run up the M6 yesterday, just bobbing about locally isn’t the best for its workings I understand, but not going much further really at the moment, going to paint the porch later, washed it all down the other day so will crack on later with it,…[Read more]

          • cosset their bases with banana skins Jenny :good: :-) :rose:

                might be wireworm, they do burrow into root veg and lay their eggs so I believe, my dad used to have me follow him when digging to get rid of the wireworms, don’t even ask, it was fairly quick for each of the wireworms I despatched

                  morning all, bit grey outside and much cooler – thank goodness – yesterday was not at all pleasant, sunshine, sort of, but so humid it was not at all comfortable, however, got all washing done, stuff dried almost as it was hung out, surpriserd really but great, enjoy your day and weekend folks, looks like we are not going to be as back to normal…[Read more]

                  • Yes definitely cooler today :good: must say I even struggled myself yesterday as normally can take the heat, think it’s the humidity that makes it worse, lot fresher…

                    • Hallo Jenny … good luck this weekend :-) … it’s the downside of living in frequented or well-visited areas, but :fingers-crossed: peops will learn :dunno: Have a good weekend and stay safe :rose:

                      Garden is coming to life slowly Anne, it has been a great one, with lots of shrubs and plants but was very overgrown, it is much smaller than the one in our previous house but that’s just great, still have my allotment so I can grow my veg as well – just love it all

                          It sounds just lovely Jenny…so good to get stuck in and work with it. A Garden develops a sensibility of its own :good: :rose:

                          hanv OH’s socks round my wet washing basket to dry and sometimes along the back of the wooden bench in the garden near the washing line, like you pegging out socks is not something I like

                            don’t blame you Anne, can’t do climbing either, our new to us garden is flat, we had quite a slope at the other one, so it is almost enjoyable to hang the washing out if you know what I mean, no walking up and down dale so to speak – enjoy your day
                              • :good: Exactly Jenny … how goes the garden this year? GGH has been very enjoyable so far :good: :-) :love: :rose:
                                  • Hi Jenny. Not a bad day here today, plenty of sun. I have a whirlygigline but would love a “proper” one. The only thing I don’t like is hanging out underwear and OH’s socks…it takes forever :lol:

                                        morning everyone, slightly better day today, cloudy, wind is just a gentle breeze instead of the raging gale we had yesterday, going to chance washing out on line, have no idea where summer has gone to this year, its obviously socially distancing, but I don’t mind if it reappears, I can put my mask on it will be fine – enjoy your day folks

                                        • Hallo Jenny … Nice to have washing on the line…I don’t do that any more, as it means climbing up to the roof and re-erecting the clothes line there, so I dry it indoors.
                                          Have a lovely day & stay safe :good: :rose:

                                                      morning everyone, keeps trying to rain here, very windy still, will find something to do but don’t fancy gardening and having to stop a lot because of the rain, hope you have a good day

                                                      surprising how many people came without masks on, although there are notices before in the church porch, they can buy them from us if they need to £1 gets them sorted

                                                        evening folks, better weather outside now, been not nice today, heavy rain, very windy, did my stint at church – open for private prayer and shop opens next week so will be back helping with that, have to remind people though to put masks on, hope your day has been ok

                                                        • Morning Jenny, much better looking here today as well, thank goodness. It’s good to get back to a few “normal” things, as long as everyone is careful. :good: Stay safe. :-)

                                                              my sister saw it on her south east news and was in a panic, I looked it up for her and assured her it was very rare, and how about just having a nibble at one she had grown before cooking and eating it, hope I did right, she is still with us though
