Thank you P. Pam.

Were they wool or man-made fibre carpets? Carpets are recommended in some books to help stop the liner puncturing.

A friend of mine, who also lives in Dordogne, had probems with her swimming pool, the sides cracked and the liner floated up. It turned out there was an underground spring under where the pool had been built.

Star gaze lily, I have horses. I'm lucky to live in Dordogne where land is cheap. My dog costs more to feed!

Have made fruit cake and lemon drizzle cake and a loaf of brown bread with seeds in it. Going to adorable granddaughter's Baptism this weekend, 4 hours drive, South East of Orleans. All my 4 children & spouses and 6 grandchildren will be there and DIL's family.

Had email notifucations this morning, except for "Morning Forkers", then it didn't say last unread post.

That's lovely, Mattie. So full of Michaelmas Daisies, I had a look at their gallery too.

I will/I won't grow that again

I grew courgettes called "Romanesco" this year as it said on the packet that they are one of the best tasting. Never again! They are the blandest courgette I have ever tasted.

You can put grated courgettes into cakes and they are nice and moist, you could probably do it with marrows too. I add grated courgette, chopped apple, ginger, lemon zest, cinnamon and sultanas to a basic cake mix.

First Greenhouse and a thermometer

I have a maximum minimum one which is invaluable, need to know how cold it was in the night and how hot it is during the day. Got it in a supermarket in France several years ago.

I'm not Paxman but I've got a few questions pretty please...

Mrs. Garden  I usually find my secateurs in winter when the beds are bare! I have 4 pairs, 2 are missing at the moment  Of course, it could be OH!

I'll confirm that honeysuckle can be cut hard back. Trouble is, I don't always get round to it then there is a messy load of dead black twigs in the middle.

I know it's morning, but just want to say that Dove has put the perfect avator for Verdun on Morning Forkers, so go and have a look.

That's right, Boss Hogg didn't have a dog, but Rosco Coltrane owned Flash.
