We are coming to the Dordogne in May and was hoping to visit some French gardens when we are there, any suggestions. We will be quite near Sarlat. The gardens we have visited were mainly in the Loire Valley, around the chateaus. I like flowers as well and am very interested in vegetable growing, The French seem to be particularly good at it.
Bunny! I hope there's not too much damage. Gardening is supposed to be good for your health What colour hellebore?
Have been informed that today is St Brigid's day - start of Celtic Spring. That'll do me, I can't wait until 21st March!
Lovely photos of Olive , Bunny . What a nice name Hope you are ok after your slip. The French gardens look great - They have the right idea, No solar lights on sticks !
Becks , no, they're not expensive but we only got them last year so a bit miffed but hey-ho - could have been worse. Some people have lost fence panels and allsorts. Seems Jess is back to her normal self May have been a 24 hr thing.
My Van Meuwen Spring catalogue has just been delivered.
I am thinking of applying for a bank loan. Some great plants in it. I want a snail tree but got nowhere to put it.
I would love to get some outside light for the back garden, but they come under the 'luxury' bracket here! And the 'luxury' account is currently on hold!
Becks - have you seen the ones in £ land ? Little solar metal lights . My friend got some for her rockery.
I'd like to see my avatar as well!!!! will see what I can find shortly.
Lovely dog Bunny, really shiney coat.
When O was going through my medieval garden phase we visited the gardens at Orsan. very lovely - lots of veg. also visited one full of ancient box - name escapes me now.
About half way thru the Van Meuwan catalogue
Hope you don't have to may aches and pains from your slip Bunny. Hellebores must put them on my list for this year
I'll look in pondland and poundland!
Wevw had several roofing chaps round and they are all quoting about the same price. We have to have damp treatment indoors as we have odd walls as we live in an old house built 1885. Actually im feeling that old wuth all the stress and theyve not started work yet. Off to visit my wicked stepmother this morning as its her 70th birthday today, im hoping there is cake. Oh and guess what its raining again.
You have been busy bees so far-I need a summary
As far as I can see a dog with a poorly tummy and wind has gone arse over tit on a wet deck fallen on some lights and landed up in Poundland in France but is still going to the plant nursery
Have I got that right?
You can buy seed of Snail Vine from Thompson and Morgan,I think that's where I saw them is that the same thing. Looks interesting.Hope you'r ok after your slip Bunny.
