Morning all.

Hugs for Dove.

Raining. OH has been outside putting gas bombs in the mole runs. I tried repellants, they just move the moles to a different area. OH put a hose down a hole, that just moved the mole on and turned the lawn into a bog.They are undermining the apple trees, in the flower beds, piles on the lower lawn, in the narrow bed around the kitchen terrace (they had to go under rock and concrete to get there) and under the lilac. On both sides of the house. Resorted to traps, but they were sprung without catching anything. I have an expensive thing with a fuse, but it says use it when weather is dry. Weather has rarely been dry this April.

Bob's right. The Geum, I think, is Prinses Juliana. It's next to another orange Geum, Totally Tangerine which is paler with single flowers.

I have AZERTY too, like Obelixx.

Have finished the upper middle bed at last. A friend is coming tomorrow to help weed the long border, but forecast isn't good, rain. The moles are going rampant, OH is getting quite upset.

Thank God for that, I thought I was the only person who doesn't wash pots.

Finished weeding and edging the upper middle bed.

Thank you Kitty. I'm opening my garden for the new French Open Gardens scheme (but it's run by the English!), like the NGS, in May. Some of the plants will go in my plant sale. There are runner beans, courgettes and cucumbers and a few pots of herbs there too. http://www.opengardens.eu/  Web site is a bit slow.

Looking good Kitty.

Over 3 weeks since my last photos so here's an update. The first plants are bigger and more seeds have been sown. GH is full. I'm not the tidiest person so please excuse the GH untidiness.
