Morning all. Too wet to garden. Spring doesn't look round the corner here, can't see round the corner, too grey.

House not too bad as tidied before weekend because of guests. Shall have a quiet day planning the garden and looking at plug plant catalogue. May dye hair.

Rose questions now I've sorted the begonias :)

I like "Graham Thomas" from David Austin which is yellow and scented and "The Pilgrim", which is a paler yellow with a cream edge and delicately scented.

I love all their English roses which flower more than once and are scented, especially pink and crimson.

Sorry Fairygirl! but it's still earlyish for dinner, hope there's time to recover!

Living in Dordogne we are lucky enough to have a swimming pool, fairly common here. Once I went to see family in England and a friend came to see my horses daily. She found a baby wild boar, drowned in the pool, so she fished it out and laid it on the lawn, then forgot it. When I came home a few days later it reeked! Weather in mid 30's. She then rang me to say she'd left it there because it looked so cute and she thought I might like to see it. I had to dispose of it and it was full of maggots! YUK!

I am listening KEF. Love pork crackling, but are you saying that because it's hard to find in France? They remove it and tie white soggy fat around the joints. Then they boil the skin and serve it with haricots (beans), YUK.

There is something funny with the RSPB site, it keeps saying page is unavailable. Too many people have been counting birds perhaps.

Dove's disguise had to be Miss Marple for guessing Toronto. I am I the last to gather that? Of course Miss Marple is a lot older than 27.

Gosh, planters are bigger than they look in the photos.

Morning all. Sorry I wasn't there last night (at Verdun's neighbours!), although someone offered to beam me there, was that KEF? Memory like a sieve now I'm over 27. Italy Unpacked was on the telly and it's a long way for me.

Bill, what does "otnorot" mean?
