🌹HELLO FORKERS 🐝 🦋 🐜 June ‘22

Here we are … another month has arrived … now it’s Flaming June 😎 … the month when the cuckoo changes his tune, and when a swarm of bees is worth a silver spoon. 

Hopefully this month will live up to its name and bring us some warmer weather … 

So now we have a new thread to say hello, welcome friends old and new, and chat about almost everything and anything … all the highs, lows and inconsequential bits and bobs of life … and offer an ear to listen and a hand to hold in the tough times. 

So find a comfy chair, flop on the sofa … the kettle’s always on … and bacon baps or sticky buns are available …

    Morning all.  We are back from town and trying to get warm. The snow flakes stopped and left a freezing breeze for us to enjoy.

    second coffee being taken, a glorious sunny morning and OH is setting off for the village on his bike … he’s run out of his decaf teabags!!!

    Morning dull and damp here, I agree @punkdoc, our heating hasn't kicked in for most of the month (hall thermostat on 18) . The last 2 days it's been coming on . The rads aren't getting particularly hot but early morn, and late eve we've noticed it's been quite chilly, a little bit of sun wouldn't go amiss now.
    Expecting the man to come with the new oven door seal this morning so I had better et on.

    Good June Morning!

    It was sunny at 7am - then a black cloud came over, so I went out with the dog in the cool at 8.  Now it's sunny/cloudy.

    Lovely introduction as usual @Dovefromabove   Sorry about your weather @Allotment Boy   Stinking hot here!!    28°C yesterday which is a nice temperature for down here.  

    Enjoy your day - I'm off to the markets on my magic bike to get fresh eggs.

    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.

    Hi all

    Cold again, but was out early, planting. It's now raining.
    How can you lie there and think of England

    Apparently it's going to rain here shortly too @punkdoc ... timed nicely to coincide with the washing machine just about to finish a full load of OH's work clothes ...  :s

    Bit of a non weather day I think,  I usually get the beans planted out on the 1st June but the nights have been about 3 to 4°,   Hopefully it will start to warm up a bit. 
    Think it will be GH work, replenishing the soil ready for the tomato/cucumber plants.

    Morning all.

    Thought about doing a towel wash but rain is forecast. Heavy rain is forecast for the church picnic on Sunday  :/ will probably have to have it inside the ancient, probably unheated church.

    @Busy-Lizzie. Just the same on Coronation day,   rained so we had to dash into the church hall for the street party.
