My garden was accepted today for the new French Open Gardens. Will be open in May 2015. It still has some colour.

 

Has any one made a gardening cake before

What a gorgeous cake that is, Marion, a work of art.

Cat update - Back from the vet. Cat isn't a kitten or a boy. She's old, well, over 12, has lost some teeth. Vet said she had signs of flea infestion which has gone, so the Frontline worked. He's wormed her, says she has no evidence of disease except for starvation. No identification. Perhaps her elderly owner died? Who knows? She's been in the woods for some time, unable to feed herself properly and is very, very tame and affectionate. But she did a poo in the cat basket, probably nerves. Vet wanted her to have a name for his paperwork (you know what the French are like!) so she's called Apricot.

Bamboo or tree screening? Suitable bamboos?

I like crab apples, not too near the fence because of overhang, but they aren't too big and have blossom in spring and fruit, for birds or jellies, in autumn. Pretty with daffodils planted underneath. There are some very nice columnar beech near here.

2 men came to look at the garden and they seem keen to open it for next year. They deal with publicity, English and French and they have helpers to help with refreshments.

There was a chicken breast in the fridge, sell by 4th Oct. Seemed a bit smelly so thought I would cook it in the microwave for Tigger, my border collie. The whole kitchen stinks! Have cleaned out the microwave with disinfectant and sprayed the kitchen with 3 sorts of air freshener and left the door open to the terrace. It still stinks. Help! Tigger arrived, I think he thought it smelt delicious, but it's in the dustbin.

Recently a little ginger and white cat, pitifully thin, has turned up and has been eating my cat's food. I've de-fleaed and de-ticked it, but worried it may be ill or have worms. It's very friendly. Taking it to the vets at 6pm. Had to shut cat in cat basket, it's not happy, but I can't guarantee it will be around at the right time.

HELLO FORKERS!

A few years ago I made my daughter a garden in her tiny backyard. I made a path from small square stones that you can find easily here, some are cheaper than others. I dug the path out, edged it with wood (hidden), filled it with sand and placed the stones in it. Then I filled between them with earth and sowed grass, as that's what she wanted. If in a lawn the stones must be low enough to mow over. The little terrace in front has the stones placed very close together and sand washed brushed over it.
