Ive come in early (6pm) because its a real hot one today,
The lawns mowed and the corn flowers are now planted,

As from tomorrow im getting out early and doing nothing in the afternoon until 7pm (as the french do)

The pool covers off and by this time friday it should be ready for use, “takes a while to get the water & filters clean enough to use”

My russian toms are really coming along fine and i think i’ll have these outdoors next week if this weather keeps up.

It really is shorts and no shirt weather today.

Ive an arch from the court yard to the lawn and a few years ago I bought some climbing rose’s that are perfummed and after that really freezing winter 2010 i thought i’d lost both of them, but they’ve grown and climbed the frame and now are covered in buds so im hoping they’re still perfummed.

The Lavender bed on one side of the pool is starting to show signs of little buds and on the opposit side the lilly bulbs are shooting up about 2 ft high,
it really is a nice evening smell from both when the moons out and the pools being used, Lavender one side and lily the other.
verious shrubs are showing colour and the Lupins are in full bloom,
But inspite of these shrubs and flowers ive nothing like the colour i get most years in june,
All that rain really has taken it’s toll out of the garden so far.
Well “she who must be obeyed” is going to try and get some pics up tonight so i’ll talk to you all later,

And i need a shower ,

Question, why do men have nipples, they are no good to us really are they?

You wouldn't want the pool here today Dungy, or your shorts, no rain but its turned really cold, I love the perfume of an evening and theres nothing better than being outside enjoying it, last years roses suffered badly in our atrocious weather so I'm pleased to say mine are just coming out now and hoping they have a better chance this year......
I s'pose if its really hot one day this year I can stick my toes in one of the ponds and pretend its a
