We could sure use some of your rain Neil. On t.v. this morning they said we have 0,8 inches of rain since May 19th. Our lawns are completely brown. We can water trees, shrubs and gardens only with NO sprinkler, Have t stand and hand water everything and then only between the hours 0f 4a.m. till 9a.m. Well I will have to to the front yard one day and the back the next. This has got to STOP. Then, in the paper, there as an article about a month ago or so stating that the price of water is to TRIPLE by July of 2014............... Can barely afford it now for pity's sake, Grumbling Angry Grumbling

So glad you got all your photo's recovered. Will be looking to see them!

Dear Cherie, I did tell you I would send some rain, but not the wine as you have enough of that. Rolling on the floor laughing
We have had 80 yards of rain non stop, it is wet and very green here! In England's green and pleasant land takes on a whole new meaning!

So glad that you got your pictures back, Neil. I am still crushed by losing mine, perhaps not pretty, but they were seedlings.

I have no way to get in touch with our Sarah. I have no idea where she is staying. Her husband was at a conference in Oxford & then came to London to meet the rest of the family. I know they have been in Tralfalgar Sq. 'cause the girls where shown with the lions. One picture at the entrance to the Tower, but it looked very crowded so don't know if they went in. Girls are 10 & 8 so have to be slow at doing things. they also got the view from the London Eye. touristy stuff.

Has stopped now. Rained for about an hour and a quarter. At least the rain barrels have a tad in there. When they are completely empty it is bad here. It had dropped about 20 degrees from 92 to 72 but is slowly going back up again. 79 now. Which only means the sun will come out get back to the 90's in no time and with the little rain we got will be more humid than before. I so dream of a whole 24 hours of solid rain. I'll even welcome thunder and lightening,

Oh Neil, I am remiss, I am glad Sarah found all your pictures for you and that perhaps you'll be sharing them all with us very soon.. As for sending the rain, I thank you for what we got and as for the wine? Never fear I have some already. That is an evening intake though. Never before dinner..

Dear Cherie, you are correct in one! Its botanical name is Tacca chantrieri. Personally I do not like black flowers too much at all, black grasses yes, but the thing is also known as the Devils plant!
This is for Lucy and for others who enjoy a ray of sunshine, which is something we have not had, At the front is a certain Hampton Court medal, and a well deserved one at that!
Sending some more rain over.

BAT FLOWER, HRUMPH!!!

That's another poor soul I killed. They are beautiful and I go and enjoy the friends.

All is well here, getting showers as usual almost every afternoon. Not downpours, but just nice gentle rain. This is our rainy season. As long as there are no hurricanes and so far so good on that note.

I love you all, family... Group hug

still no rain here either, not since the last of May, everything is burning up, lost most of my flowers and I doubt if my lawn will make it, maybe we will get rain Sunday it is the fair parade, always rain on that day and this year we are praying for it.

I tried twice to grow the Bat plant and no luck, both times they died befor they were a year old.

Loch Ness Monster. Neil do you believe in the real thing?

Pictures posted by daughter Sarah from Stonehenge & Oxford. She says they got lost in Laycock so must be driving.
Oh I hope the kids remember Stonehenge. I did a reply that their uncle (my brother) had a Fullbright scolarship at Queens college. The dome is a good landmark. A long time ago, he is now 85.

Dear Lucy, I have been to Stonehenge many times and Muriel was there when it was built! Rolling on the floor laughing It is not far from my University in Winchester, which as you know was the is Capital of England.
Stonehenge is in Wiltshire as my University is in Hampshire. Wiltshire is famous for its pigs, and its lardy cake which is very fattening! It is basically a cake that is covered with sweetened lard (pork fat). and is delicious.
Everyone thinks that Stonehenge are the oldest stones in the UK and that is not true; for the Callanish stones in an island off Scotland are 2000+ years older , which makes them before 5000 BC!
Yes of course i believe in Nessie and wild Haggis, though haggis is difficult to catch as you know. Rolling on the floor laughing
After all was not an American who bought London Bridge thinking it was Tower Bridge, and then realizing his mistake put in the desert, which is true.
I am so sorry I missed your family, as it would have been a pleasure to show them the non touristy areas. For we have an inhabited house that dates back to 800 AD that has a garden, and that is not far from the city of London. London is easy to get around if you know where you are going and what lane of traffic to get in. It is easier on the bus as they have bus lanes and do not have to wait in the traffic, or to walk as it is only a mile square. I do hope they had Yorkshire pudding as well. Rolling on the floor laughing
I love Oxford and know it well, did you know that they have there own Botanic garden?
Regards.
Neil.

Stonehedge is a bit easier to get to.

Sarah could probably catch a wild haggis as she is a distance runner even though she is your age. Or do they only come out at night. I only know what they are doing because of facebook pictures.Pictures of grandchildren is the only reason I have been on it, although now in touch with a couple iris groups.
Have been in the bontanic garden when irises were in bloom. I was on a garden tour at the time.
