    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:

    Nothing exciting Jane. Wildie food and a couple of girlie stickers to put in the birthday card of one of my kiddie friends who is 9 on wednesday :-)

    • Bet you come back with something else though!! Will do what you said about the seeds. Of course, I’ll have to hang them upside down with their stems from one of my many ceilings like at Gt Dixter :lol:

    I always like to hedge my bets when collecting/sowing seds, Jane, so I would collect a few now and leave some on the plants to dry out.

    Morning all. We just had a short walk round a nearby village yesterday. I made carrot (not mine) and courgette soup as I really fancied soup for lunch with a cheese sandwich. I did the ironing and not much else as I was tired and very bad tempered :angry: . I slept better last night. OH is taking the boys to the railway heritage centre. I’m…[Read more]

    • Morning Cilla :-) A day to yourself then ;-) Glad you slept better – I got cramp and should’ve left my socks on :lol: What are you looking for at the GCs?

    • Cannot imagine you as being very bad tempered, Cilla – do you mean, “a bit snappy”? Or do you stamp about banging dishes down on the table? That’s what my mother used to do sometimes. She was usually very sweet natured, and we all hated when the silent banging started.

    Morning both, again :-) Never thought, you could have bortowed my OH ;-) Yours will be knackd after all that travelling…..hope you have something nice and courgetty for him :lol: :good: on the skipping. Have a good day whatever you are up to……you could pot up some seedlings and see what they turn in to :-)

    • I think I might just pot up some seedlings, then :lol: Is it ok to collect seeds when it’s a bit damp?

    Morning Karen and Jane. I stopped growing garlic, it just wasn’t a success and so cheap to buy ;-) Idid used to love plaiting it though. Enjoy that swim and safe journey to the aunts :rose:

    • Thanks Cilla, long old drive there and back in one day, but good to see them both.

    While we are on the subject of beans, our village show is in 5 weeks……when can I start nurturing a bean to compete for the longest?

    Afternoon Lynn. I forgot to look in the butts but we didn’t get that much rain so I’m hoping for more. I expect you’ve done your ironing by now, what a shame ;-) :lol: I hope you enjoyed your day :-)

  • cilla posted a new activity comment 1 week, 1 day ago

    Good afternoon Jane. I have been known to pot up weeds before now but I do have quite a good idea what seedlings they are. You’d better speak nicely to OH to bring me over again ;-) I hope you’ve had a good day. Damp and muggy here. :-)

    • Hi Cilla :-) been reading most of the time and OH is in a hotel now so that he can get to the bus easily tomorrow so we had a nice chat on the phone earlier. Getting hungry – courgette for dinner (again)!

    Morning clickers. I’ve been awake since 4,45 and caught up on answering my emails :-) It is damp and grey outside so I hope we have had plenty of rain. I don’t know if we shall be walking but I do have ironing to do, not much, though. We had a nice walk yesterday morning near Bradgate. After tea outside the cafe we went up to a nearby nursery for…[Read more]

    • Morning Cilla :-) I’m always totally impressed that you recognise seedlings and carefully nurture them for future planting. I can’t distinguish anything and may have to employ you at some point to tell me what I’ve got :lol: When OH gets back, the first thing he’ll have to do is cut the grass – it’s very green again. He wasn’t impressed when I…[Read more]
