    • Oh good, thanks Len :good: I’ll get onto it asap. HALWeekend :rose:

      • hi anne. hope you have been out in the garden, but did see there was rain down there. still dry here but hoping for rain here to save me watering.

        • :lol: :good: Have been out in the rainy garden much of the day Len. Our lovely downstairs neighbours weeded where the birdseed is growing on the path around Blue Hill, then the little girl sat and chatted with me under the flowering Arbour, which is covered with sweet-smelling Clematis. This afternoon I put down a sack of bark chips I had onto the cleaned path … marvellous :walt: aren’t folks kind. :love: :rose: I also planted some seeds, a few left of the white Borage from Allan and some Marigolds after prepping the bed. Woe betide any cat that gets entangled in the netting I put over the top. Did other odds and ends but have now come in for a warm bath … am soaked!! :lol: Laters :high-five: HANE

          • evening anne. you were a busy bee. weekend flew by here. dont know where time goes. had martin and sophia up on sunday. they had a shocking journey up on the trains. took 6 1/2 hours to get up here. getting to be a regular problem. i am away in newcastle this coming weekend so better get some gardening done first. :fingers-crossed:

          • All is happy here Len. My friends from Switzerland are back home safe and sound. Our eldest Granddaughter, whom we collected from the airport last week from her first ‘leg’ of her Gap year in S.Africa [there’s another story! :-) ] is now enjoying a week in Marrakech!! and I am getting to grips … literally phew!… with GG! Dom is sorting out his garden work shed and the Blackbird was getting hysterical about the Ginger Tom this morning ….usual madhouse :lol: HAGD Len :good: :rose:

            • evening anne. it is all happening at your end then. funny you say about blackies. there were 2 fighting like mad in our garden yesterday. it was so bad one of them had lost a lot of its feathers. i had to part them.

            • Good heavens Len :shout: did you literally part them ‘hands-on’ or just make a noise and flap!?
