Unknown shrub

It could be Deutzia Hybrida "Mont Rose".

Yet another ID required please?!

I think it looks like Campanula Persicfolia "Pride of Exmouth", a more unusual one as it's semi double.

Clari I wish you could give me those Hostas, I love them slugs or not, for my plant sale on Saturday. Fancy a quick weekend in France?

 My "Bowl of Beauty" peonies have different flowers on each side of the plant! Weird.

For vegetable growing I've used the Readers Digest "Food from Your Garden" for more years than I care to remember! Alan T's "How to be a Gardener" books 1 and 2 are good for beginners.

Morning all, raining, but at least it'll water everything before Saturday.

Going shopping, then lunch at the Wok place. You could your raw food and they cook it for you in a wok with a choice of sauces. There is ready prepared Chinese food as well.

Making strawberry jam this afternoon for the Tea on Saturday.

It's not easy in Dordogneshire, too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. Where I am there isn't much topsoil, it's limestone and clay.

When I went to stay with my brother in Crieff the weather was lovely.

Yes Percy. Been in France since 1985. Have made an English garden. This forum is great for keeping in touch with English people (and Scottish, brother lives in Scotland) who love gardens. We go to England regularly on holiday or to visit friends and family and visit gardens.

Weather forecast has a risk of rain, hope it doesn't. My garden was open to deer, I almost gave up, then 3 years ago my new OH fenced the main flower bit and the veggie garden. When I first made the garden there was no bother from deer for years, then word got round
