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.

Hello, I seem to have missed calling in this morning. Did 2 loads of sheet and towel washing as wanted to fit it in before the storms start, made bread and then have been re-doing my pots and troughs. Think I have too many, but at least I don't have over 200 like Monty Don!

I'm never in the garden with shorts on, jeans save time scrubbing mud off my knees.

Why is Verdun taking a break? Has he had words with someone?
