Cowart's Common Room
Contented Lark

Another morning of blue and cloudless sky. More water is leaving the earth via transpiration than is falling upon it. We shall soon be frazzled.

Yesterday I put a second chair out on the lawn beneath the (spreading, rapidly) chestnut tree and a little table as well. Despite the lawn being tiny it is like a terrace or secret garden, shaded by the trees, bounded by an impenetrable hedge on one side and the house on the other with a laden greengage tree in the middle and with a vista of walnut, medlar, blueberries and hibiscus with a wisteria in the background. It is an oasis of peace. I am not sure how I have acheived this happy felicity non gardener as I am, but is is perfect for reading - or even just sitting and watching the birds and the insects and the blue welkin. We lack only for the roses to put on a display and then the scarlet and vermilion of the nasturtiums to come tumbling out of their pots to seed a veritable cloth of gold. Happy days to all.

Camilla's Avatar Thank you for posting Fennie, phew been trying to gain access from broadband today and no landline phone working all day either still not. Can't access emails either . Rang my broadband supplier and an engineer won't be able to come out and fix until this Wed between 1-6pm. Just managed to get online now what a palaver !Very Happy

Sounds like you are having the most perfect weather Fennie a truly midsummer days. It was quite hot here today Roses are blooming and the Hollyhocks won't be out until July but they have reached almost 5ft so quite tall. Your garden sounds lovely I miss my old Wisteria one of my favourite plants .

Fennie's Avatar The sooner you plant one the sooner it will flower. Mine came from Homebase, in a pot already and with big flowers. It is now in a larger pot.Very HappyVery Happy
