Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

good morning, all.
we have rain and it's predicted to last all morning, phew! i think it may be my fault as i emptied a trugg full of leaf mould into a wheelbarrow and left it uncovered, yesterday evening.
maybe some extreme hswk needs to be done. it's been sorely lacking for a while.
have a good day, everyone.

Sweet peas 1.jpg


That's this morning's pickings from about 8 plants ... they're on the table on the terrace ... a beautiful scent but too strong to be indoors :shock:

Can't quite recall what I'd planned for supper ... I expect it'll be something to do with courgettes :lol:

Have a lovely day folks :D

They're gorgeous Suffs. I love the scent of sweet peas.
F. had a lovely vase of them (and I was given a bunch so also have one now) but there was no scent. Quite disappointing but they are a perennial sort called Lathyrus latifolius which apparently appear in abundance each year with minimal effort. They look gorgeous and I might try to grow some.

Those are lovely Suffolk
My mum used to leave flowers that were too strongly scented in the hall, so you got a hit when you walked past and the scent wafted through the house, but you didn't have to sit with it

Was sunny first thing but overcast now, which helps keep the rooms cool

Need to pop to the supermarket, then backgammon tonight, the proper baptism of my new board

too much nitrogen/love if the leafy growth is good or maybe not enough maltreatment - they don't feel they need to flower and make seed. are they in full sun?

Leafy growth is good, and in south facing garden. Dad suggests stopping watering them and let them fight for a bit.

Now I’m not sure to feed them or neglect them a bit?

Stop watering and you're asking for them to get Powdery Mildew.

As I said earlier ... give them Tomato Feed ... high in potash which promotes flowering.

They have had their tea ;) so I will wait and see. I haven’t treated them any differently as previous years when we have had stunning amounts of flowers, maybe I should have moved them around the garden a bit? It will be their last year in this position as we are going to grow rambling roses over the fence, any recommendations for a climbing/ rambling scented rose.

Hundreds ... how much room have you got? :lol:

How high does it need to grow? Which way does the fence face? What's the soil like? What sort of colour? Single or double flowers?

This site helps you to get the right one and there isn't a better place to buy roses from :kneel: :kneel: :kneel:

We have just invested in Gertrude Jeykell, Danse de Feu, Strawberry Hill and Aloha. We also already had Times Past, which is one of the most beautiful roses I have ever seen and Handel which is tall but very, very prolific. Davis Austin Roses are absolutely brilliant, as are Peter Beales. Bought by post from both of them, well packed, healthy plants ready to pot on. We do use the micro rhizal powder on the roots before planting and are getting brilliant results.

Oh, and both companies mentioned will send you a catalogue full of what I can only call 'Rose Porn' :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool:

As this has turned into a bit of a gardening spot, can anyone identify this bush for me please. We dug it out of our garden years ago, but it keeps coming back. It usually flowers for about a week in June, but it’s started to flower again now and is looking lovely at the moment.
(Well it was until the torrential downpour we had a few minutes ago :? )
There is a large Roman tree (very similar leaf) and a red robin tree to the left.

That's my first thought too ... named because of the similarity of its leaves to Rowan (aka Sorbus).

good morning, all.
slightly overcast at the moment but rain not forecast. the bit we had yesterday morning wasn't enough to top up the first water butt let alone make it into the linked, empty one. just enough to wet the surface. it was predicted to be heavy for a few hours - oh well.
my copy of j. mcvicars complete herb book arrived from abebooks yesterday. it was described as 'good'. i would say it was a brand new book. it's of the latest publication date and cost £4.80 including postage (it's not a light book). happy bunny.
off to yoga in a bit.
have a good day, everyone.

Good morning
Sunny but less hot today, unfortunately the humidity has ramped up to 70% so the plants will be happier than the people I suspect
Will tidy up a bit then go out to play backgammon

Abebooks are briilliant, but I am sad that Jekka no longer does mail order plants, my original herb garden here came from her. I still have her recommended rosemary for pots - Boule, compact, slightly contorted, delicious and stunning when in flower as being compact the flowers are much closer together than on the usual bushes. I also have thyme Lorna Doone, the mint was never to my taste and the other shorter lived plants have not survived 17 years
Better get on I suppose, have a good day everyone

overcast at the moment. the met says there was fifty percent chance of rain in the last hour - i think it may have passed us by. it's unlikely for the rest of the day and the sun will peep out again this afternoon.
i wonder if the shrew is bothering to return - there's no sign of another at the moment.
off to the farm in a bit followed by the need to get fuel.

Glad Cliff has got his verdict ... I love the BBC but they were very wrong in this instance ... however the police were even worse ... how dare they 'feed the press' like that ? :twisted:

Also hope Elon Musk feels he should make some sort of substantial financial gesture to the rescue team ... what a nasty piece of work he is.

Glad you've caught the shrew Scully :D :tu:

Overcast here but I expect it'll burn off ... 'possible showers' at the weekend ... I won't hold my breath ...

SIL with Sickle Cell is finding all this heat very difficult :( On the brighter side, his daughter (my step grand daughter) and her fiancé are getting married near Petworth next July :bounce: :D :luv:

Have a lovely day folks :D

We don't have any rain forecast in South London, Sue :( Not until the 30th, and then just a brief shower if it happens at all. I am pretty sure the long term forecasts are not that good anyway. At least not at the moment.)

Petworth is a nice place to get married, Suffs!

Good morning.
Quite cloudy but warm and bright, though fortunately the cloud does reduce the extent to which the flat warms up

Went to Wolf Hall last night at the Bridewell Theatre. The Bridewell is tiny, great for me, sitting in the second row (to get a bit of height, it's a really steep rake) I was less than two metres from the front of the acting area and less than 6 metres from the back of it, so even I could see everything. And having failed to get through the book, I finally understand what Mantel is getting at (might argue with some of it, but I get it)

The cast is excellent, especially Cromwell but I'll be interested to see how Scullion thinks it works in the bigger outdoor space of the Minack as the production style is essentially talk and tableaux, which I think is the only way you can deliver the scropt.

Getting on with bits and bobs and hopefully some backgammon tonight

Have a good day everyone.

Like so many people (including most of my book club) I got lost in the now notorious three and four Thomas discussions and gave up. Why she did that when they probably wouldn't have usef first names themselves I don't know, surely that's where English public schools git the surname thing from? Very clear in the play, and a sly little joke about the naming in there too v

Late on parade due to heroic attempts to zap foreign spam on GW forum ... is this the result of the move towards being tariff free, I ask myself ... ;)

Since the last family wedding the number of Thomases in our fairly immediate family has doubled ... we also have far more than our fair share of Roberts ... not to mention "Simon Richards" and "Richard Simons" "James Simons" and "Simon Jameses" ........... at least there's no one else in the family with my name 8-)

I haven't given up on Wolf Hall ... but I have paused for a bit ... I might have to start again .......... one day .........

Have a lovely afternoon all :D

good morning, all.
sunny-ish at the mo. the rain promised for today (yesterday night) has decided on a no-show for today, according to the met office. they are saying differently on the radio. maybe it came and went during the night.
our trip up to north devon, yesterday, was very useful. we went up via the atlantic highway rather than the a30 - a much nicer drive, less traffic and at the speed we drive probably not much difference in time.
off to do a bit of picking etc in a couple of hours and then the shopping.
i enjoyed both books, 'wolf hall' and 'bring up the bodies'. a friend and i, when it's on at the minack, have the best seats in 'the house'. (my partner didn't want to see that one but it was one of the ones she did). i'll let you know.

we had rain last night and for a few hours - i'm not sure if it was heavy enough to fill the water butts, though.
we may get a little more this afternoon - there's a forty per cent chance and then back to full sun tomorrow.
my partner is over in aggie until mid afternoon and i'm building myself up to doing hswk - a major amount is needed - but i'm out to play tomorrow.

Back to intermittent sun and clouds here with little chance of rain. We never got a shower, just the lightest of light drizzles that didn't even dampen the surfaces.
Need to do some chores but also I have a podiatry appointment and will then go to the farmer's market. New podiatrist as S is now on maternity leave.

Will have to water my pots.

We had some Actual Rain last night so for the first time in ages and ages I don't need to water this morning. Am making the most of the freedom as there's no more rain forecast for ever more by the looks of the outlook.

i'm experimenting with a self watering system at the moment, to avoid the losses we had while in france.
sizal stuck through holes in the lid of washed out, big, plastic milk bottles with the other ends pushed down into the compost. last nights rain may have skewed the timescale of my system, which has been watering a strawberry plant, in a smallish pot, for the last three or four days to brilliant effect.

good morning, all.
bright but overcast, at the moment, with no rain predicted for today just the odd sunny blasts.
i'm off to play with fire in an hour or two so have to look out some pots, make some hummous to share, find some old, clean wood and generally get myself sorted.
i was right about the amount of rain on friday evening/night - the cat may have got wet but there wasn't enough to make any difference to the water butts.
my experimental watering system still seems to be holding up so i'm extending it to some bigger pots.
have a grand day, everyone.

Good morning
Hot though intermittently overcast here. Slightly muggy
Scully, the oleander in Calabria, especially on Capri were amazing, comes in more colours than I had appreciated. And we visited a lemon grove in Sorrento, they grow the lemons over pergolas made from chestnot poles, so the fruit hangs down and they can be picked from inside the pergola

Debating whether I will go out tonight for backgammon or not, just worried the pub may be unbearably hot.

maybe i'll take a photo of the oleander - it may not look as good another year - it hasn't made much effort for the last couple of years!

Do they need mature wood to flower well?

i don't think so, it's produced flower buds over winter, before, but when it's been put outside changeable weather has withered the buds, i think it's more to do with not letting them get too cold in winter, lots of light and a hot summer. last winter it lived in front of south facing glass doors in a room at around 13°c and put outside two or three months ago.
as it's in a pot i've also made sure it doesn't get too dry for too long in the hot weather.

Tire mended, ferocious storm blown up, with winds that feel much stronger than weather forecast suggests. One minute in it, shower required, as sand/dust whipped up. The sea has turned from azure to charcoal grey. Good thing we have food in for lunch. Batten down the hatches time.
