What a combination.
since we had that very hot spell and then all that rain with some bright spells in between everything in the garden just seems to have 'sprouted' big style - especially the weeds.
I've now got fruit on the new apple trees I planted just a few weeks ago- unbelievable!!
I've taken all the lemon and orange trees out from the green house and at they are doing really well outside.
The past few days we've had very heavy rain falls and some places have been flooded but even with all this rain in some areas there is still a ban on using a hose pipe to water the garden etc. (not in my area as yet)
Here are some of my flowers:

Thank you Simy
The back garden is almost finished and the man who helps me came today and has started to trim all the trees/bushes in the front garden. Its surprising just how quickly the trees and bushes have grown in the past 2 weeks. Normally we wouldnt trim them until the end of August but if it was left until then I guess I would be thinking I had moved to the jungle!
Emmy Very Happy

Thanks Liz
Well the other 'large hedge' and I mean large!! has been cut and that leaves only one border of bushes to be done now but I think we're going to leave those until the end of August in fact I think I may even try to do one bush at a time myself-I've got long handled loppers. Even if its only a few branches at a time it would keep me happy.

I think that they just arrested some people in India for harvesting and selling human body parts!

Yugh!! Thank Goodness I dont live there.
Reminds me of stories of long ago when they used to rob graves to sell the bodies for medical research.
Gives me the creeps!!! d'oh! d'oh!
