    Morning all. More feline worry this morning. Kitten wss huddled in my chair, wide eyed and wouldn’t come for her breakfast :-( Exhausting day yesterday. We walked 5 miles round Bradgate with a stop for bacon sandwiches sittibg outside and which 5 wadps wanted to share :excruciating: In the sfternoon we went for a walk round the Bluebell…[Read more]

    • Morning Cilla :-) I wonder what was wrong with Kitten then :rose: Sounds like you had a nice day yesterday apart from the wasps! There are a lot about at the mo – 2 in the bedroom on Friday :-( Just hung some washing out – blowy but grey. We should probably go for a walk but I suspect we won’t. Must have a skip in a minute. Have a good day :-)

    • Do cats have bad dreams? Maybe we will never know, but it sounds as though it might be possible. Must confess I read your post with horror, Cilla – two walks in one day! – has OH no sense of proportion? It’s OK if you really like it, but don’t you ever feel like just faffing for the afternoon?

    Morning Lynn. That sounds like a pretty perfect day with your family……especially Peter Rabbit :-)

    Morning Bean. Well, we had some of your rain overnight on wednesday but it doesn’t look as if our sun has reached you yet :-( I must do the toms today as well so shall be thinking of you doing yours :-)

    • Good morning, Cilla. I only hope you have more space in your DF than I have in mine. Will be a marvel of ingenuity and 3-D jigsaw ability to get anything into mine.

    Morning Jane. It sounds as if all in the garden is looking good :good: My courgettes are slowing down but I don’t need the space so they can stay awhile yet. The dragon’s tongue rocket I sowed outside is showing as is the parsley in the greenhouse. Enjoy your day. :-)

    • Morning Cilla :-) I ought to sow some rocket today after your reminder – the taste is so far removed from lettuce and so nice for a change :-)

    Morning clickers. I found ANOTHER COURGETTE RECIPE for you. Go to Marks and Spencer food site, find woodfired pizza offer, scroll down to Reduce Food Waste and click on it . You will find a recipe for broccoli and courgette stacks which look a bit different and tasty.
    I’ve caught up on my walking while it has been cool, planted some of my new…[Read more]

  • Great pics Jane and Walt :-)

    A horrendous, tragic day for your town Karen and no excuse needed for playing this moving tribute. :love: :rose:

    Whoopee indeed :lol: No rain here again although a little is forecast tomorrow. The plants aren’t suffering as much because the early mornings are cooler with a dew but I daren’t plant any of these new plants yet so the bees will have to visit them in their pots ;-) I will swap you some sunny days with a couple of rainy ones ;-)

    Good morning Bean. Thank you for your kind comments :-) I shall make a batch of soup and a batch of sauce…….and hope the freezer drawers will expand :lol:

    Good morning clickers. We went to a GC yesterday and bought 2 planters for the papyrus which OH bought at Thornbridge Hall, 3 scabious,a verbena and a new compact red leaved physocarpus. Pet shop for cat biscuits for the hedgehog and I took home 3lbs home grown cooking tomatoes for a donation to the charity boxes…..guess what I’ll be doing…

    • Funnily enough, I had decided to visit B&Q today to buy the masonry paint for coping stones and window cills for exactly the same reason. All over Britain, pensioners are anticipating their DIY needs desperately before the 10% discount finishes – and B&Q’s takings will peak dramatically.
      Must congratulate you both on a beautifully neat doorway…[Read more]

    • Are you making tomato soup?

    • Good morning Bean. Thank you for your kind comments :-) I shall make a batch of soup and a batch of sauce…….and hope the freezer drawers will expand :lol:

    • What a lovely neat front door Cilla. :good: Enjoy your tomato day. ;-)

    • Morning Cilla :-) Gorgeous plant! Hope you can garden today but seems like you’ll be in the kitchen! Have a good one :-)

    • Morning all, just googled scabious and scabiosa, interesting can Flower up to ten months of the year, but likes a lime soil. Will have to have a look for one. :-)

  • What stunning colours Al.

    Morning Jane. Doubt I shall get a quiet day, OH will want to go somewhere ;-) Your poppy heads should be fine and the ones in the ground will disperse their seeds.

    Morning all. Very weary this morning after 3 hours in the front garden yesterday cutting dead stuff and clipping my lonicera and spirea. HAGD all. :-)

    • Morning Cilla :-) you sound tired from your click ;-) I take it you’re having a quiet day then. I cut some poppy stems down yesterday and put them in the shed, which was baking hot. Don’t overdo it today :rose:

    • If you feel tired, Cilla – just dig your heels in, and make OH go on his own. One of the lovely things about living alone is that I don’t have expectations like that constantly cropping up. I hope you get a chance to recharge and recoup – but I remember sometimes this takes second place.

    • Hallo Cilla :high-five: It’s worth it as your garden looks so beautifully cared for … bravo :good: :rose:

    • Morning Cilla, et al, I’m with Sheila on this, let OH go on and have a gentle “you” day. :good: :rose:

    Morning Jane. All is right with your world now :-) Enjoy your day despite the washing ;-) ;-)

    OMG how scary and a great relief he was found. George and Charlie disappeared in seconds at a Gc when they were small when we had them….panic! Enjoy that swim.

    • Thank goodness for good neighbours too Cilla, must have been dreadful for you & OH when the boys disappeared. :-(

    Morning Sheila. Most of my days are scruffy ones….gardens and cats don’t invite smart clothes :lol: Have a lovely day pottering and potting. :lol:

  • cilla posted a new activity comment 5 days, 18 hours ago

    What a lovely spot Karen, stunning views, which part was it? And, yes, Alfie looks happy as Larry :-)

  • cilla posted a new activity comment 5 days, 18 hours ago

    That is absolutely fabulous :-)
