Thank you Chicky. Forgot the wellies!

I think I'm not as sociable as DD. When I was younger in France the children were at school and OH was at work I didn't work then but I didn't mind being on my own. Then when OH died and children were at school and university I was on my own much more but that was a horrid time because OH wasn't coming back from work. Nights were awful. But I got used to it and when I met 2nd OH I was fairly antisocial and spent all day in the garden or with my horse and dog. I did try doing B&B for a bit but didn't put as much into it as DD and there was hardly internet so advertising was harder.

Yviestevie, the Norfolk cottage has a small courtyard garden and a front flowerbed which has nothing in it. I'll have fun with that later.

We are sitting in a packed up flat surrounded by boxes waiting to go to the pub down the road to eat with OH's family. Howling gale and raining, glad my anorak has a hood.

Must be lovely with Constance Spry, her scent is one of the best and that would prolong the flowering by using the two.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Lily Beetle!  Why isn't the horrid thing hibernating?

That's really pretty, Tootles.

 Specsavers, Dove?

DD I thought you were so busy with house and garden and B&B. Anyway, congratulations on the job, I hope you enjoy it. Will you still do B&B?

We've just been for a beer and a snack in a pub between the sea and the downs.

Morning all.

Glad you had a good day DD. Could that have been Le Mont Dore? Took daughter and 2 grandchildren there last year for a day trip. They loved it. But I think I'm too old for skiing now! Was never very good anyway, too nervous.

Last day in Eastbourne, removal men tomorrow. Going out for a meal early this evening with DIL, SIL and 2 grandchildren.

I saw a lovely scented clematis in a private garden that was opened for the NGS last year. Betty Corning, liked it so much I bought one.

Where are you Fidget? Is this your honeymoon? Have looked back over your posts and you mentioned once that you were packing. Have a lovely time.

Thank you, GWRS, Lily P and Hosta We will still be in France more than England and I still have a big garden in France to look after. I was trying to make a little bit of England in France, but I've always loved gardens. They make me feel happy.
