Today has really been not a good day. SIL (1st OHs sister, rang very early this morning. BIL has had a ruptured aorta, it's been repaired but he's in a coma. One of Son No 2's best friends, really nice young French man with lovely wife and baby daughter, was hit by a car while cycling with his cycling club and is in a coma, doctors can't say if he'll recover. One of our friends, husband of my gardening friend, has had a serious operation, but, although he's in pain at the moment, the doc says he's be OK.

I plant mine in November, but that's only a few days away.

Those chicklets are adorable.

Will there be Halloween food?

Welcome back, Fidget. I expect house and GH will recover.

We had a lovely lunch out at my friend's. She'd invited some of the people I've known the longest in Dordogne. When we left home this morning to go to church it was only 7° so I wore a pullover with a skirt, a fleece and tights. By the time we arrived at friend's the sun was shining it was 20° and she'd put out chairs in the sun in the garden. Stripped off tights and fleece but was boiling in the pullover, though it was only a light one. Luckily lunch was indoors.

Yvie, I have 2 Agastaches that I potted on yesterday, thanks to Verdun, Black Adder and Blue Boa. I hope they will be OK spending the winter in a cold frame. Also 3 Geums, including Totally Tangerine, also thanks to Verdun. Will have to do some reshuffling in flowerbeds. Oh yes, also salvia uliginosa - Verdun again! But I've just seen that that likes damp soil, bother, no chance here in summer!

What a coincidence! Wonder if it was the same day.

Thank you Chicky, we are hoping to visit both those gardens in July 2015.

Glad you had a good day, Chicky. I love Wisley, but not easy to get there. We have a flat in Eastbourne for when we are in the UK, belongs to OH's daughter really, but last time we went to Wisley there was an accident on the M25 and it took 3 hours.

Did fish and chips tonight, at last my batter is improving. OH loves it and the French don't sell fish and chips and the fish is bread crumbed, not battered, in the supermarket.

I still like Frankie best, though I think Pixie and Caroline were a little bit better tonight. I think I find Bruno the most irritating.

I haven't looked here for several days either. Miss the email notifications.

I hope you get your appointment soon Matty, hugs, and best wishes to all who need them.
