Garden Pictures 2015

Thank you. My garden is in Dordogne, France. That tree is a weird sort of sideways spreading prickly conifer that my first OH (died) planted in 1992. He liked prickly plants! I don't care for it much and I cut off the sideways bits as I wanted to see up the garden and to make mowing easier.

Ideas for a "Blank Canvas"

Hard to answer as so much depends on your personal taste, type of soil, amount of sun and shade. How bigish? There are books available about garden design and pictures if you search on the internet. A photo would be helpful.

Tomatoes in a cold GH

Posted: 03/05/2015 at 09:30

My tomatoes have been in the GH at night for some time now. I did have them on a heated mat, but I've turned it off now and they have survived 5° at night.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Wet here too, but I hope it clears up enough to plants some things in the veggie garden so I can put more plants to harden off in the cold frames so I can make some room in the GH to plant tomatoes.

LilyP's advice sounds good. Have you offered the farmer compensation for his sheep? Best to stay on the right side of local farmers.

Could it be a yellow sedum spurium? Like in this link http://www.drought-smart-plants.com/sedum-spurium-fruland.html#axzz3Z0WNft7g

It looks very like London Pride, Saxifraga Urbium, which has pink flowers.

HELLO FORKERS!

Mattress sounds weird! I don't like a too hard mattress as I have arthritis in left hip and tendonitis in right arm and shoulder, need something for them to sink into a bit.

Has poured all afternoon. Going off to eat pizza in a minute. OH has lit the woodburner.

HELLO FORKERS!

Well, one person is happy - rose! Insist on the best fork he can get

Still raining. Been removing stains from carpets. Going to clean some mirrors after a cup of tea.

Oh dear oh dear,,oh dear......

The Queen isn't pompous. She's devoted her life to a difficult job and done it well.

Oh dear oh dear,,oh dear......

A new baby is new life and new hope, but I agree with AWB. I also agree Andy 19. And I think France could do with a figure head monarch instead of that idiot Hollande, with a Prime minister at the head of government.
