Oh and another favourite is Waterperry, just gorgeous, especially when the delphiniums are out.

 

What is your most favourite garden that you visited?

I haven't been to Barnsdale yet, still hope to one day.

This is a hard question, so many lovely gardens. I love Great Dixter, but just for roses it has to be David Austin in June. Then there is my favourite RHS one, Rosemoor, but I haven't been to Hyde Hall yet (next year). Breezy Knees garden in North Yorkshire was a wonderful surprise. Hoping to go to Beth Chatto's next year. Loved Trebah in Cornwall with its wonderful jungly walk down to the sea.

Bitter Knitter (are you good at knitting or do you wish you were?) I live in Dordogne, driving to England for pre-Christmas family visit and to buy crackers (not sold in France), stopping at daughter's on the way, Picardie, 1 hour from Lille.

Have done lots of dusting and OH has done hoovering. Don't want the housesitter to think we are total slobs. Next are ironing and packing.

Happy Marion had the same idea in 2013, here is a link to her thread  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/painting-what-youve-grown/82877.html  in case you'd like a look.

Lovely painting Daryl. I used to paint flowers from my garden but then I needed glasses and somehow I don't seem to have time anymore. I sent a painting to Marion's thread.

Not sure why I haven't looked here for a bit, probably because of lack od email notifications. Some stunning photos. Fidget's are so exotic and unusual.

We went to a French Remembrance Ceremony on the 11th. The village children letoff balloons, one for each soldier from the village who died in the Great War, 63, and it's only a small village.

Thank you Lesley and KEF. Leaving tomorrow, staying with daughter in Northern France, taking the Chunnel on Sunday.

Farmer delivered hay into horses' field shelter this morning for them to help themselves to while we are away. Housesitter will be here. Must do the ironing and pack.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

Posted: 13/11/2014 at 09:46

Mine are in a cold frame with the lid off, they germinated in there too. I've just nipped off the tops, doing much better than the ones I grew indoors last year, not spindly. Now, in view of the above, I think I've pinched them out too early. But they had 3 - 4 pairs of leaves, fairly close together. No frosts yet, mild and damp. Mild and showers forecast for the next 10 days, in Dordogne.

Daffodils

I've never seen them flower in November.

My clematis Perle d'azur flowered in a mild January, but it didn't do it any good, very weak the following summer.
