Hello Forkers December

Morning all. Good to see Fairy back. Lovely photo Clarice.

Going to a meeting in town this morning. I should have said city, as Dove does for Norwich, it has a cathedral, but Périgueux, although it's the capital of Dordogne, isn't very big so it doesn't feel like a city. Then shopping. Must make 100 mince pies for the Carol Service in the Abbey on Sunday, need butter and flour.

Good to have you back Fairy. I hope your hand/wrist is OK. Fabulous photos again.

I always watched the Landscape Artist of the Year, but OH has stopped Sky so missed it this year. Didn't always agree with the judges though!

Thank you, Kitty and Joyce. I did see this thread, and posted, when it very first started but it's so different now.

I'm off to write Christmas cards too.

The search doesn't even bring everything up and most relevant often isn't.

Hello Marion. I'm glad you have your laptop back. I like your owl photo. My daughter had the Generous Gardener, it's a beautiful rose, now on my wish list.

You will have a perfumed kitchen today, instead of a perfumed garden!

Your alpine plants sound exciting.

I'm still in the middle of planting tulips, had rather a lot, and now there are Christmas cards to write.

So - this is where RB, Ladybird, Hazel and all are hiding! Is this a chat thread?

Morning all. Morning Fairygirl, have you been away?

More of the same for me today, Christmas cards and tulips, but no more manure.

Went to visit my son recently. We did some Christmas shopping in Auxerre. Pretty old town. Also went for a walk around his village. Photo is of a lavoir where the ladies did their washing long ago. I dread to think how it was washing bedding in winter in freezing water and carrying a heavy, sodden load home. Maybe they didn't change the sheets in winter!

Where is Fairygirl and her lovely photos?

That's great news, DD. Is that the Compromis de Vente that you've signed? I really hope it all goes through smoothly.

Tipped another 6 barrows of manure onto the veg garden then planted 25 tulips and 3 big allium bulbs, Mount Everest, in the middle bed. Still have lots more to plant. Takes longer than I thought as it needs weeding as I go along and mole tunnels need filling in. Maybe that's why my beds are well drained!
