Agreed. Hydrangea.

There was a mummy deer with her baby in the paddock this morning. When I used to go riding I saw a lot of wild life as being on a horse didn't frighten the animals away.

There are lots of wild flowers here in Dordogne. A wild patch of my garden is full of orchids and in late Spring there are cowslips all over the place.

MORNING FORKERS

Morning all. I'm sure they touch up all the photos in catalogues too. A lot of the photos are the same for years in French catalogues.

Love the colours, Chicky, in your bed on previous page.

Hello David K. Don't think I've seen you here for a bit.

Looks as though you had a really good day. Thanks for sharing.

I loved Hidden Valley in Cornwall, went there in 2011.

We used Cuprinol Shades, Willow, but there are lots of colours. It was painted on bare wood and is now 2 years old, no sign of peeling, still looks new.

Morning all. That hellebore is stunning. Wonder if they sell it in France. They are more expensive here than in England.

Weeding this morning, haven't done any in the flower garden for over a month. A friend is coming here this afternoon. Must tidy kitchen, looks a tip. I look at the post and magazines in the kitchen and I'm very bad at filing.

I don't know, but the flower is rather like a hibiscus. There is one with leaves a bit like that but they are brown, Acetosella.

Ageratums were small blue mounds too, with fluffy heads.

earwigs

I used to have earwigs on dahlias, but now I haven't. I don't use pesticides.
