We're feed the neighbours cat while she's away at her gite getting it ready for the holiday people,
Its a lovely cat at hides in the barn until she hears one of us calling her ,and then she's around your legs purring away,
"feed me feed me"

But we've an idea now. :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

Well its a dull day and a bit cooler,
Just back from our "WALKIES" down by the river, as we walk along a path that passes the woods we 're near to a field full of young cow's and when they see us these cows come running over to the fence and walk on their side until they have to stop as the field ends just there,

We continue out of sight and down to the river and then start the return walk back to the field, The cows are still stood waiting for our arrival and walk with us until they're at the far end of the field and just watch us walking away,

A lovely sight "nature as it should be".

Hi Logan, and paws,
It's yet another wet one here today, and its a day out to the local (11miles away) garden indoor fete,
so i'll be in happy land while im looking at the rusty stalls (old tools and stuff) "her indoors "likes the likes of womens stuff, vase's and glass things,
Sometimes the plants can be ok but im never in to much of a rush to buy,
They really have to show signs of being grown in good conditions ie plenty of roots and looking like they once lived,
Well i'll tell you about it all later,
Good gardening to you all and quack quack to those enjoying the wet wet May. :)

Thank you for good wishes for the garden fete,:oops::oops::oops:
After driving to this little french village the" world forgot"
and in that drizzling showery rain we parked next to the dead centre of the village,

"The cemitary"

I notice we we're the only signs of life "ie no car's or live souls tobe seen"
We walked to the place the Fete was to be in "The village Hall, also the band practice hall & the young mothers (learn how to be a mother meeting groups rooms)
But no signs of any "FETE" and the only signs of fresh growth was the attemp via nature to grow a lawn in the guttering,
Very nice attempt as the grass nelt over the gutter and the rains water gushed down like a romantic water fall.

The Fete had been cancelled that morning when only two stall holders turned up, So we we're told, (1) selling fancy walking sticks
(2) selling bottle tops,
This is" I think" A french collecting thing, they're like tin bottle tops off beer bottles "the type you need a bottle opener to get them off,
Very popular here in france (christ only knows why)

And so having thanked this man i thought was part of the committee but turned out to just want to use the loo's,

we walked back to the car and drove home enjoying the old french houses you could see on our way back to our home,

As we drove onto our drive way we had a smashing sight, 3 heads looking at us through the french doors window's "all tails wagging"

It's still raining now:(

And it's a misty morning here, dew hanging off the archway tunnel and the rose bush is just waiting for that one hot day and it'll burst into flower, sometime later this week (we hope)
All three dogs have had their morning rub against one of the box hedging border walls, (they do this every morn it's sort of their light morning shower followed by a lawn roll).

Hi,

A lovely morning here with a breeze so I was out very early hedge and laurel trimming; I had been using stepladders to reach the top of the laurels it being a struggle but as usual I managed then came indoors for mug of tea and bickie; as soon as I sat down our postman arrived and amongst the junk mail a flyer from Screwfix offering bank holiday deals; typical of my bad luck in having just completed trimming the laurels this was included in the special offers;

https://www.screwfix.com/p/mac-allister-mhtp550p-50cm-550w-220-240v-corded-electric-pole-hedge-trimmer/6928r?_requestid=183724

Also included was a £5 voucher so Bron and I have just returned from Screwfix with one of these pole trimmers at a very good price and now ready for future laurel trimming. :D (y)

Kind regards, Colin.
