That's lovely, Humblebee, my roses are asleep.

What a beautiful bird photo that is.

Lovely photos.

We had a Garden Gallery thread in 2017 for our garden photos. I've started one for 2018.

Now that it's a new year I am starting a new thread for our garden photos. I had a look and couldn't find that anyone else has done one.

Things are just starting to move in my garden.

Let’s celebrate our Birthday 2018

Yes, thank you Kitty, I saw that. I left a birthday wish for Dove on it as we used to use it quite a lot, that was part 2, but it's been forgotten lately. Nora decided to stick with this new one.

Bucket list

How do you know we won't be naked, Frank?

I don't have a bucket list. I've done quite a few of the things I wanted to do, like gallop on a beach (did that in Ireland with my daughter), holiday in Corsica, visit the Beth Chatto garden and Bressingham Gardens, go to Venice with a man I love, ditto Tuscany and Florence. I've been to New York and seen the man I love singing with his choir in Carnegie Hall and then we saw Impressionist paintings in the New York Met art gallery and walked in Central Park.

I would have liked to move back to England, but my children and grandchildren all live in France so we have done the next best thing and bought a little cottage in Norfolk and spend time in France and England.

The main thing is good health and a happy life for me and my family.

Preparing a runner beantrench

Posted: 29/01/2018 at 14:05

I don't bother digging a trench anymore either. I dig or rotovate around March, usually too wet earlier. If I have manure or compost I dig or rotovate it in then. Then when I plant the plants, after the frosts, 2nd half of May, I do as Fidgetbones and sprinkle blood, fish and bone along the pole line.

Beans like water and I think part of the idea of a trench is to help retain water, but if you water them then it's fine.

Morning all.

Glad you enjoyed your birthday, Dove.

Sounds rather a stressful journey, Fidget. Glad you are safely home.

We had a lovely weekend at daughter 1. The 11 grandchildren were there, 2 Grandbabies to cuddle.

Dove, did you see birthday wishes from others, including Wonky on the previous page?
