  • Good morning all.
    We have the sun back again so it will be too hot to work in the conservatory
    A few hours in the garden instead.
    Have a good day all.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.

        • Afternoon all. Good luck with legal person, LD.

          Busy morning so far. Temporary roof repairs, mostly done by Mr Snoop. My job was to hold the ladder, pass up bits and pieces as required and get stung by wasps. Ow! Big storm due this afternoon - sounds like lots of you have already had yours - so thought we'd better get it done sharpish.

          Time for lunch already! I can't believe it.

          • Wasps?... ouch!

            Have a look at this site-it's brill for showing lightning flashes and the roll of thunder...plus showing older ones so you get an idea of the route....

            you can zoom right in too.

            We followed it yesterday to see if and when we needed to unplug the router.

            • Afternoon everybody,

              Started early today to avoid the heat. Picked lots of plums and blackberries, which I seem to have been casually grazing on throughout the morning till now. I think I am starting to ferment...

              • I've just cooked down almost 3kg windfall stewed apples from last night's storm . One small tree, but it's about 1/4 of its crop
                I did check on the blackberries but they are desiccated.

                Too hot/humid to collect the rest of the windfalls from the other trees just now . The kitchen is deffo not the place to be at the moment!

                        • I’ve been trying to prepare and plant the new beds in my garden for several days. I couldn’t stand it out there for 5 mins. Now we have a thunderstorm. My dogs are terrified but I’ve been standing out in the rain cooling down. It’s no cooler indoors but I’m tempted to go out in the rain and finish what I started before the heat comes back again.

                          i love thunderstorms.

                          • Good evening all.
                            Despite the warm day 22 degs I washed down and painted all the woodwork in the conservatory .
                            Watered everything in the greenhouse.
                            Got some laundry out and now back in and dry.
                            A busy day but glad to get so much done.

                            No storms here do far, just very dull and humid.

                            Very interesting site Nicos, not much lighteningover Irelsnd.

                            Have a good evening all and stay safe.

                            • Morning all. much cooler today, with quite breeze blowing. I've opened all the windows to let out last night's heat. Hope the hottest days are over now.

                              Nicos and Snoop, I don't know how you bear such hot temps all summer where you live. Give me snow any day.
