10ft of boring bareness

I like deciduous too, but it won't hide the horrible wall in winter.

Thank you for all your kind comments. I suppose, that having lived here so long, I was sort of defending the French! But when I visit gardens in England I'm always amazed by their beauty. That is a bit of my garden, it won't fit in the photo, it is quite hard work though.

There are some blue irises, 2 sorts, and a clematis MultiBlue.

I would go for evergreen, Choisya, Eleagnus Gilt Edge or Euonymus.

It will be in May. Here is a photo of part of my friend's garden, her main herb bed (not open day) and also a photo of my garden on the day that it opened when the Cecile Brunner climbing rose was coming out.

I've been outside too, taking the summer annuals out of 14 pots on the kitchen terrace and adding some fresh compost. Will plant up with pansies etc. tomorrow.

Al those who are worried about Verdun - he is still posting on the gardening threads. Has posted today. Probably just doesn't feel like chat at the moment.

I haven't read it all either yet.

I have good English friends in my village who bought the old presbytery some years ago. She has made a lovely garden with gravel herb beds, perennial beds, roses, irises and a chicken area. (Not the French lady mentioned before). My friend opens her garden the same day as me in aid of a charity for children with cancer. The local French people have admired it.
