HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Sun, cloud, not too hot - yet. So must get into the garden.

Up late. Saw from last post that I didn't go to bed until 1am, which is 2am here. We saw Romeo and Juliet in a garden in Domme overlooking the river Dordogne. It was lovely, but 1hr 20m from here.

My aphids must have been drowned in the winter rain, hardly have any this year - at least no greenfly. There were some on the broad beans, but they went when I picked the tops off.

Holker Hall looks lovely, Zoomer. Huge house and gardens, rare plants. But not for me  - yet. It's in Cumbria. So far from France. Wonder if Ryanair goes anywhere near? We were thinking of East Anglia next year.

I also love the planning and dreaming about next year. I look at bare earth and see flowers! You're right about bed though. Goodnight.

No, only photos and I haven't read the books. I once saw a lovely TV programme about growing daffodils in Cornwall.

Is that the Minack Theatre? We stayed much more in the East when we went to Cornwall.

Thank you Lyn. North Yorkshire is lovely, miles from you, but Devon is lovely too, we went there 2 years ago. The weather was good too. I see I didn't post any pics with lawn.

Romeo and Juliet in a garden in Domme was lovely. There wasn't a thunderstorm, thankfully.

We visited a fabulous garden near York, called Breezy knees. Quite a new garden, they started planting the flowers in 2006 having planted trees and hedges first to protect it from the wind. The soil was sandy so dried out quickly so they have used weed preventing porous fabric topped with lots of bark chippings. It's worked very well.
