Just going to be a bore and post this thread again as it was the last post on the page before, in case anyone was interested. WW saw it though.

We have just returned to France having been on holiday in the West of England. I put the photos of David Austin's rose garden on the rose thread, but I'll add some more here.

Hever Castle in Kent.

Yvie hope your daughter recovers soon. You may be a similar age to me. My children are in their 30s, but people my age are only 27 on this forum!

There is a thread for gardens we have visited on this forum, but no one has been there since May. I better go and add a few photos as we saw several garden on holiday. There was a thread for last year too which had some lovely photos.

Been busy today, shopped and cleaned bedroom and ironed duvet cover for OH's BIL and his wife who are coming tomorrow for 6 days. And did general dreaded HW.

Poor police or whoever clears up that mess.

What's the star in your garden right now

It takes time and control, Bekkie, which is why my garden gets messy at certain times of year. You have to snip off bits and divide and stake before it's too late. Easier said than done! I've missed the boat with some of my shrub pruning this year and my Tuscany rose that I never get round to is enormous with a lot of dead wood in it so it fell onto the lawn in a storm.

Morning all.

Loved Champion and any programme about horses when I was a child. Only recently saw a film of Black Beauty, made me cry.

Podded rather large broad beans yesterday, now my nails are black and it won't come off. Put nail varnish on to hide it, but it took ages to dry and now it's all smudged. Must have been a cheap and nasty one, pretty colour though.

Going to hypermarket, and the GC to buy a pot the for the impulse buy of Lady Emma Hamilton when I was at David Austin's. No room for her.

planting between shaped bushes on a fence (tall structural plant ideas please)

My daughter has planted a non invasive bamboo in that sort of place Were you thinking of perennials or shrubs? Veronicastrum virginicum 'Fascination' is a tall blue or purple perennial.

Glad about your Mum OL, that must be a relief.

Welcome Yviestevie, are you male or female?

I haven't got sunstroke, been raining and just had a small thunderstorm. Funny thing was that when in England I got caught by the sun when wearing a low necked top. In France I garden in the sun and nothing happens.
