Happy Bamk Holiday!

aside

Thank goodness for Japanese azeleas in these 'dog days' of the garden. I love the way they glow in a west facing bed. They require no care whatsoever and come up smiling each year. This is a busy week, with French family visiting and my first blog meet on Wednesday (which I am both excited and nervous about) so posting will be spasmodic - for a change.
Hope to get round to visit everybody.

I'm afraid I'm not a great gardener but I do like a nice garden so these flowers sound ideal. And so pretty too. You have a lovely garden.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. It was nice to 'see' you! About your comment, I saw a Spitfire flying at the Royal Air Tattoo this year. I also see one regularly as someone keeps one in air field close by!

My garden used to look like that. I haven't been allowed to do owt for a while so now it doesn't. It will though. I'm rebelling and getting stuck in.

Wow, a first blog meet, I'm sure you'll enjoy it very much.

Happy Late Summer Holiday!

Bob-kat: thank you: it's a bit of a wilderness. I'm trying to persuade my husband that we do need some help in the garden. Am I right in thinking you are in Wales? I took a photo yesterday looking across and wondered if I should wave?

4d:I hope you are feeling better. I've nursed two husbands with heart problems and it is very frustrating for them when they are getting better and they tend to be a bit grumpy. Mot that someone as sunny tempered as you would do that. But if you do feel frustrated, meditation, deep breathing and yoga are painless ways of getting fit and well and tranquil. Honestly!

mkwm: good you're back. You can be sure I shall be blogging about it.

what a beautiful garden. who will you be meeting at the blogmeet ?

PI said...

Zoe:thank you! I meant baNk holiday of course. I promise to tell all after Wednesday although son # 1 seems to think I'll be whisked off for white slave traffic. I should be so lucky:)

Lovely garden. Have fun with your blog-met. I've had good experiences with that.

Z said...

Yes, me too. It's a funny thing meeting a blog-friend, you feel as if you know each other so well already that you skip most of the initial getting-to-know-each-other preliminaries that you usually have when you meet someone for the first time.

I was too nervous to cook lunch and took them to a local restaurant!

Love the flowers in the garden, that little bench area looks so inviting!
You will have fun at your blog meeting I'm sure...hope u include a photo afterwards..tell us all about it!!

PI said...

TLP: I never thought it would happen - living o;ff the beaten track - so feel fortunate.

Z: cooking lunch would be no fun at all. We are just meeting for coffee, which suits me as this is a busy week and hopefully there will be other times.

Moon: I will make a real effort to remember my camera. I've already discovered the venue is closed until September. Fortunately we have phone numbers.

Oh Pat...I know your "blog mmry" will be wonderful...I've had two of them so far and both were really quite special....And I got to see Wendy a couple of tmes and Jamie, too! There is something quite wonderful about meeting someone you already feel you know...

Your garden is lovely and it hss such a look of an English garden, as I recall from a few other pictures you posted in the past...
ENJOY your French family, my dear....and come by when you can!

Naomi: we may not be able to meet in person but at least I feel I know your lovely home and garden and enjoy being a frequent visitor. All those wonderful male actors you have to choose between. Wow! BTW anyone curious you have to go to Naomi on my side bar and pay her a visit. It's special.
