Welcome back Fairygirl, you were missed.

Back from the freedom rally in Périgueux. It was all very peaceful, everyone gathered in the square by the post office and theatre, where there is a tree called "l'abre de la Liberty" "Tree of Freedom". People had put candles and pencils in the stones around the bottom of it.

Photos will probably turn up in the wrong order, they usually do.

It was all very calm, people were silent, there were outbursts of clapping and singing the French National Anthem. Then we all walked slowly up and down the high street, which is like a dual carriageway with grass, tree and flowerbeds in the middle. Thank you so much for all your support.

Wills, how old are you?


Posted: 10/01/2015 at 22:33

I thought perhaps Wills is on the rather young side.

I will be holding so many pencils I hope I don't drop them! Thanks all.

Rambling roses

Most ramblers don't repeat flower. I have 2 repeat flowerers, Malvern Hills and Phyllis Bide. They both flowered in their first year as they will flower on old and new wood.

Who do you think it is then?

Click on this link and it will tell you in detail  It is what I do. I sow them every year, usually works fine, occasionally doesn't. Saw you had a problem with lobelia. I sowed them like in the link last year and I had lots. Tricky to prick out though as they are very small.

Unusual red hot pokers......

I've only found one sort for sale in France, orange and yellow. I have two, the bigger one has been used by a nesting hedgehog hibernating under it in winter, so although large and tatty I can't throw it out!
