Mon dieu! Aucunes marmites et aucune Marmites, non plus!  Point du tout? Comment survivre? 

Quant à la Marmite  je l'aime mais j'en ai trois   - ma famille les ont achetées pour moi, mais je ne sais pas ni quand ni pourquoi!  

(Comment est mon français? Je ne sais pas pourquoi mais souvent je veux parler en français bien que n'avant pas visité la France plus de 5 fois, à peu près, depuis mes journées d'écolier. C'est bizarre n'est-ce pas?

 Peut-être je devrai parler en anglais avant qu'on ferme la porte contre mon visage?  

Sorry folks. Finished now.

Also sorry belatedly to fidgetbones about your dahlia. Our posts crossed while I was playing around with language puns and stuff.

serious now: That is a real sickener when you've put so much time and energy into a plant. I know as a relative beginner that after potting up about 250 plugs I got so much faster and more fluent I forgot that, all said and done, plants are still tender, fragile lifeforms. One slip in concentration and it's gone! 

We are all working in a risky environment - like driving.

Perhaps there ought to be a gardening test before we can wield a trowel!

Sorry about the language - blame it on the spellcheck.

Busy-lizzie: Mais toutes les cuisines françaises ont beaucoup de marmites. Malheureusement, point de Marmite!

Watch the spellcheck fb - you should see the weird stuff my iPad throws up when I don't expect it.

I really do have to re-edit sometimes. (The last sentence originally came out as:

'I freaky do have to rare-sit some sometimes.')

What's the weather like in your area?

Been in Northants since 2pm. Quite pleasant temp, bit of a breeze, sun was shining until I started this post a minute ago. Bit overcast now but clouds are high.

Careful KEF!

I was first but then edited and KEF slipped in front.
