Really pretty Clari.


Has everyone been watching Chelsea and that amazing programme about growing and selling cut flowers?


I spent most of the day in the veggie garden.

Too late to edit! I meant thank you to Bob for the clickable link form. But thank you to B3 for finding it in the beginning.

Thank you B3. I told my gardening club about it and they wanted the link, but I couldn't find it. Thank you Bob for providing it in the first.

Morning all.
Electrician has been for estimates for storm damage, but it's a bigger job than he thought so he will have to come back with a mate and some special equipment to find out if it all needs renewing or just some of it.


It's a lovely day, must get out and do some gardening. More storms forecast for this weekend, followed by a week of on/off rain.

It's beautiful, and I've never heard of it. Looked it up, it likes moist well drained soil, not wet in winter and some winter protection, but it's frost hardy. Don't think I could grow it as my well drained places get too dry. And Dordogne winters are usually too cold or too wet.

Gosh Pat, your native animals are so different from ours. Is that a porcupine? I suppose we have hedgehogs. And here in SW France we have little grey lizards that sun themselves on the stone walls.

Happy late birthday to Clari and Punkdoc, my broadband was burnt out in the storm on Sat. night.

Gorgeous gardens, Nut, Lily P and Punkdoc. I feel the same as Fidget about box hedges, I only have one and it's not clipped at all in a wild area. Birds use it for nests along with the huge ivy next to it. I think punkdoc's garden style is the most like mine, but then I haven't seen it in real life. And I can't grow meconopsis - that's lovely Pd.


Punkdoc, sorry I missed your birthday because of our storm and burnt out phone lines. I hope you had a good day. Well, you must have done, I saw the Trentham Garden photos.

I liked the Hepatica man too, but I'm afraid I was so tired I fell asleep and missed some of the programme.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

I've had Border Collies for the last 40 years, so easy to train and loyal. My current one will probably be my last and he's 13  He's not keen on going in water unless he can see the bottom and it isn't out of his depth. He doesn't fetch either. He likes rounding things, cars, animals, people, up and then keeps an eye on them.
