Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Didn't lose Internet and only had a very short, seconds only, power cut, but there was a very strong wind last night. Didn't rain as much as the forecast said.

Going shopping for the Strawberry Tea this morning, but first I must plant a big blue geranium, bought in England, and the 3 cleomes that I grew from seed.

Morning all.


I'm not surprised by the result. I don't think it has to do with Brexit, it's because of Social Security cuts etc. May comes over as arrogant but I think that is because she was trying to look strong. Don't forget that she was for remain and then ended up having to negotiate Brexit, a difficult position. But I would not have voted Tory anyway, although I felt a bit sorry for her. Can't see why anyone wants to be a Politician!

Cutting garden

How is your cutting garden getting on Obelixx? Mine is growing but not yet flowering. Sweet peas are very late, I didn't get on with it so the seeds were just pushed into the ground this spring.

The pharmacien here in the local village told me that in France everyone is asked to bring their unwanted used and unused medicaments to the pharmacy. They are then sorted and disposed of safely or sent to 3rd world countries if they are in date and unused.


I've finished the greengage tree bed, weeding, and planting salvia farinacea, isotoma and rudbeckia "Tiger Eye" where the daffodils were. Started weeding the lower trellis bed.

Morning all.


I always voted in England because of the women who fought for the vote, among other reasons. But I have lost the right to vote now as I have been in France for over 15 years. But as I have dual nationality I was able to vote in the French Presidential elections and I will vote in the elections this month for our MP. OH has sent a postal vote for the English election.


Gardening this morning, then making a cake and preparing for the Strawberry Tea this afternoon.


Good luck with your eye and the hospital visit, Lilly P.

I've PM'd you too Topbird. We'll be back in Norfolk in July, after baptism of son's baby, near Auxerre.


We went shopping this morning, had lunch out, then I gardened the rest of the afternoon. Nice day, not too hot, but warm enough to eat our first bowls of garden raspberries outside under the pergola.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Weeded the greengage tree bed and planted an erysimum "Bowles Mauve" and a purple salvia in it. There had been a mole in it   Weedkilled the drive. Tried a new one, some sort of acid that said it is ecologically friendly and not dangerous for animals. Wonder if it will work.

Morning all.


Been very busy in the garden and went to a meeting in Bergerac yesterday, haven't had time to post. My annual charity Strawberry Tea is on Saturday. SM for supplies this morning, gardening this afternoon, cake making for the Tea tomorrow and tidying house and gardening. Shopping for the S. Tea on Friday. Around 50 will be coming and friends will come and help.
