    We spent yesterday evening in the garden again, watching our hedgehog drinking from the shallow beach at the end of the wildlife pond, then rootling around in the little wilderness before making her way silently through the ferns at the foot of the big ash tree and through the little arch at the base of the fence and off on her nightly  tour of neighbouring gardens ... magical 😊

    Morning all 😀. Happy July 😎

    Had a brilliant day yesterday - of all the gardens I have visited Wollerton Old Hall is probably my favourite - breathtakingly beautiful 😍.  Probably caught it at the peak of its loveliness, all billowy and blowsy, full of secret gates and corners - heaven 😇

    Hodnett Hall was lovely too, but in a different, grand stately park sort of way.  All in all a great weekend 😁

    One day in the office to endure today, and then off to Hampton Court tomorrow with Mr C 🌸.  And Chicklet has now returned to the nest too......so chez Chicky is full 🐔🐤🐥🐣

    Hi all.
    Recovering from a weekend of 24 / 7 Glastonbury, shame to waste the nice weather, but it is something I always do, and would not miss.
    Walk out to winter, swear I'll be there.
    Chill will wake you, high and dry
    You'll wonder why.

    Lovely day for it BL

    Hi all. Just a quick visit to say hello. Our internet has been off all day. 

    Punkdoc, we saw Kylie M and David Attenborough at Glastonbury on the news. Hope the music was good.

    Hubby in tomorrow morning for no. 5 Chemo. I’m staying home this time. 

    Bed time now.

    Sleep tight @Pat E 🛏 😴 

    Lots done in the garden today ... mainly by OH 💕... but I’ve made bread, cooked lunch and made a cauliflower cheese for supper and done quite a bit of weeding, repotting (plants) and re-fueling (OH) ... he’s had the company of a cheeky robin as he’s been shearing some long neglected edges up in the more dishevelled part of the garden ... revealing lots of bugs and grubs for him. 

    The miscanthus has been
    swamped by the centaurea and consequently very slow to get going this year. The centaurea has been chopped back and I’ve given the miscanthus a helping of chicken manure pellets and a good soaking ... that ought to pep it up a bit 😊 

    Now OH is sitting under the tree having a cuppa, then he’s going to tidy the tools away etc and I’m going to watch some tennis 😊

    Hello I have missed you all

    Home now and getting stronger every day.  Been warned it could take 6 weeks so I must behave.  NHS brilliant, everything was always explained,even if I was semi con with it. and I was handled very gently thro some not so fun tests. I seem to have been lucky they identified the bug quickly. I don’t know if this was for “effect” but they told hubby another 40 mins and it might have been trickier.
    Anyway I have enjoyed seeing all your beautiful gardens and am very envious   Ours looks like a jungle and I have missed so much! Meconopsis I grew from seed, never mind have had time to do a bit of re prioritising and a garden is always a garden even if it’s hiding!

    Glad you’re getting stronger LilyP - take it slowly.  Think I must have missed that you were taken into hospital - glad the NHS did you proud.

    And well done Mr Pat too.....getting closer and closer to the end of the treatment now.  Hope you are both bearing up.
