Well, if Blue Boa is hardier then Yvie and I just need to wait a little longer perhaps. I don't have any fresh new leaves to rub.

Garden Girl, yes loads of tiny weeny petunias are up, all 4 varieties, but the trailing ones were slightly later.

Edd's photo has arrived, Black Adder's leaves are more sharply serrated than that.

My Agastache Blue Boa looks like a handful of dead sticks. Thanks to Verdun,, I bought Blue Boa and Black Adder last autumn. As I have never kept an Agastache in the flower borders through winter, I potted them on and put both in a cold frame. Black Adder never lost all it's leaves, which are rather pale green now, but it is making new darker heart shaped leaves with serrated edges. Blue Boa has died down completely and I'm wondering if, or when, it will show.

Lovely crocuses and lovely garden.

Just click on "OK" at the bottom of the garbled error message and it will go away, Mine aren't taking any longer than usual, but I have very slow internet here anyway.

Morning all. Happy Mother's Day. But it isn't in France, it's in May.

I've felt a bit under the weather today, temperature a bit up. Sore throat, hope I'm not getting another cold , last one was bad enough and there is so much to do in the garden. Done nothing today.

What lovely hellebores you have Fidget. I've never seen any like that here in France.

Lyn, I thought as you hadn't posted things had got better. I'm appalled. I wish I lived near you and could help. You are a wonderful, brave daughter.

Pyracantha has sharp prickles, but the birds like the berries, has to be kept pruned to the size you want it, can grow into a monster!
