I love that gate in the wall, makes you want to look into the other side.

Beautiful, Yvie Stevie. Have you popped into the Birthday thread yet?

It's rained most of the day and we've been out most of the day. Visited a friend's garden, this morning, that she was opening like I did for Open Gardens eu, like the NGS. Then saw another eco garden and house built with straw bales and had it's own reed bed sewage system. Very pretty though with blue Nigella and red poppies.

Then we went to a choral festival, OH sang in one of the choirs, in South Dordogne. Came home, had pizza, watched the rest of the Hollow Crown, Richard III.

Glad you had a good time Obelixx, except for the traffic. Must go and look at the photos.

Your garden is really coming on Dove, lovely tree. I hope to be in tough when you get back. We are going to Norfolk on the 14th June and now the French have announced a General Strike on that day

Crikey, Fairy's garden looks a real challenge!

How clever of you Pitter Patter (page 5).

But work in progress shows great activity and is to be applauded. Not something that has just slid into neglect and you get so used to looking at it you don't notice the mess. OH has now tidied up my shed. I nearly had a panic attack while he was doing it, I couldn't watch!

Morning all. Going to look at a friend's Open Garden today.

Rain is forecast, it rained in the night. At least we didn't get the storms that were forecast but daughter 1 near Poitiers got them.

Shall make strawberry jam this week when it rains. And I'm going to help daughter 2 near Libourne clean her new house before they move in.

Thanks B3. Lovely, Bob. Chicky, gorgeous wisteria.

The yellow rose is Suttar's Gold. It is flushed pinky red when in bud, the under petals can be a bit pink, but it doesn't show in the photo. It must be about 16 years old.

But Hollie Hock, that isn't a border, it was the garden pond. I can't be bothered with it ever since a friend's labrador punctured the liner when he thought he'd go for a swim.

Chicky, the rose in pic 2 is Summer Song from David Austin.

I find it hard to name photos as my photos appear in the opposite order to how I select them.
