Scorchio yesterday (as my post-gardening neck and arms can demonstrate). Scorchio today. I love summer Unfortunately I'll only see it through the closed and tinted windows of my workplace today
Had an interesting experience doing the midnight marathon on Saturday. Let's say that the distance was not the challenge! Being off road in the dark was tricky and the woods were downright scary!! Proud of my limpettes for doing it as well. I took a flying fall down one particularly steep and rocky path... It's only thanks to my natural athleticism that I didn't break a hip!!
That sounds like Ultra Ironing Fefe! I have to say, it's not the sport for me.
I'm looking forward to my weekend - daughter and I are doing a midnight marathon! It's off road and hilly so I'm expecting it to be more of a joggywalk than a run. Hopefully it'll stay dry and the nearly-full moon will light the way!
We drink a lot of really decent ground coffee. I'm glad to think I'll be making use of the grouts from now on rather than just throwing it on our 'midden heap'! Now - what do I do about the aphids that are eating random lupins?!
Seren - my bees (red bottomed and white bottomed) really like blue / purple plants. Borage is good but unruly. Purple lavenders and clover are very popular. As I understand it - the more vibrant the flower colour, the 'louder' the message is to bees.
Thanks for the heads-up about coffee grouts. I throw mine on the garden every day but didn't know they helped with slugs. I have an awful slug problem (oo-er ). They keep eating the purple flowers that belong to my bees!! Where do I get copper tape?
Glad your neck is improving Mrs F. 10 days is a long time to suffer with it though. You must be exhausted. Hope the chiropractor helps.
