Zoomer, Carcassonne is nearly 4 hours from here.  I am 1h20 north of Bergerac.

Spent the afternoon pulling out grass and bindweed and generally weeding and tidying, apart from I hour of ironing. Oh bother that reminds me I must get the washing in.

I'm not keen on yellowy heucheras, I think they look ill and I agree with Fairy about the lettuce like one. But I like ordinary green ones with pink or red flowers and I like dark red ones.

Lovely, Ighten. How is your house coming on?

Is it ok to plant climbing roses in a trough shaped planter

Thank you for the photos. I agree with Lyn, but I would use liquid soap. I don't use any pesticides know and the natural balance is restored. Some years, of course, there are more aphids than one would like but others years there are none. I leave it to the natural predators like ladybirds.

I think the rose, lovely flower, will need a new pot next year, some of the leaves look a bit pale. In pots they need more feeding and watering than usual.

 But she knows that flower tubs are forbidden!

If cats are allowed then here is Alexa who also follows me about. Was a stray, semi wild, in the woods near my daughter. Daughter managed to catch her when she was a child and has been with me ever since. Now rather sweet, but was full of hiss, spit and scratch when young.

Here is my gardening buddy. He's always snoozing somewhere in the shade nearby when I'm weeding. He's 11, but was 9 in the photo. I took a photo recently, but I can't find it. Usually looks scruffier, just been bathed.
