Today I treated myself to the August copy of "l'Ami des Jardins", which is a French gardening magazine.  Imagine my surprise and delight to see our very own Carol Klein on page 48 holding a box of strawberry runners she has potted up!

Unfortunately the magazine didn't say who she was or anything, but it's nice to see the French appreciate English gardening talent.  Particularly Lancashire English gardening talent!

Carol's my favourite. Was she parlaying Francais?

Mine too.  She wasn't parlaying anything.  She was just smiling out from behind a wooden box full of pots of strawberry plants.  She was wearing a blue cambric shirt, so that probably appealed to the French magazine people as it reminded them of the blue overalls that everybody wears here for gardening etc.
