Back from daughter's earlier this evening, had a lovely Mother's Day weekend with her and her family. They bought a house last year, been empty for a bit and in a state. SIL has done a lot inside and daughter has been making a garden, starting with sowing the lawns. Now she has about 100 roses. It was her birthday on Tuesday so we went to a nursery to spend her birthday money on plants and shrubs. Great little nursery, good selection and not expensive. We had such fun!


Have read Hazel's post, sad she's going. But the night before she said "Now I know where Runny and Tetters have gone". I wonder if that has anything to do with it. She said it was rather sad. I would like to know where Runny has gone, she made me laugh, miss her.

Home again. My daughter is seriously into gardening too. They bought their house last year and she's done masses, lawns re-sown, flower beds dug, wooden fence up, getting on for 100 roses planted, climbers up the house and fence and shrubs in beds. I left her planting 60 perennials that we bought in the nursery, really good value, 1.60€ each. She's a teacher and mother of 3 sons.

Morning all.


I'm helping daughter make a new rose bed. Yesterday we went to a nursery and daughter spent her birthday money on shrubs and perennials, she was like a child in a sweet shop, it was great fun. Good little nursery, good variety of plants, properly labeled and very reasonably priced. Wish there was one like that near me. My local garden centre, Jardiland, is expensive and the staff don't know much about plants, which aren't properly named with the variety.


Daughter thinks she will have around 100 roses when the latest offer arrives. Lots of David Austin ones.


Looked at that site about Loch Etive, heartbreaking.

 I first saw roscoea in Bressingham Gardens in 2015, never heard of them before. They were lovely, but I've never seen them here.


I hope you have a good walk in Glen Etive. We had a happy family holiday in Taynuilt by Loch Etive when I was 16. Weather was lovely.

Finished cutting out dead wood from Felicité et Perpetué, 2 barrows full, hadn't done it for 3 years. Have a red scratch on my nose. Raining now.


Have just made large chicken and leek pie for tonight, enough for OH tomorrow if he wants it when I'm with daughter. But friend in the village has just rung to ask him he he wants to eat with them tomorrow and she's making leek and potato pie!

Frost -1° Must do some more pruning.


Going to daughter No 1 tomorrow morning until Sunday evening, she lives south of Poitiers. Her Internet is not good.


Have fun on Saturday, Chicky, sounds great.

Morning all. Don't read back, Kitty, until you've watched the Throwdown!


May do some pruning if it doesn't rain. Was -1° with a frost this morning.


Hope the hospital visit goes well Lantana.

Fairygirl, Niobe has been on my wishlist for when we next take the car to England. Will be May. Couldn't find it here.
