Morning all.

Liri said "Anyone know if you can eat couch grass roots??" - How often have I wished that something did! They are in my irises and around the Paul's Scarlet Climber rose.

KEF, you asked what clothes I bought, but it wasn't really that interesting. 2 warm cardigans, a pullover, a long sleeved T shirt with blue flowers on the front and a suede look skirt. Half price in the 5 day "choc". Can't buy jeans in France that don't fall off when I walk, they are all hipsters. I have to wait until I go to the UK to get per Una ones in M & S, but I wish they did more in blue.

The veg garden one could have been lovely done the way that Geoff Hamilton did it, with veg in with the flowers. Don't why Monty says veg have to be grown in rows, Geoff proved they didn't.

Yes they will, mine did. Water them in well, they may flower a little later. Earlier spring might be better if you can manage it.

Well done Pauline. What a good idea, painting the manhole cover green. Think I'll do it.

I liked tonight's programme best so far, but I missed Wednesday's. Though the Japanese one was very expensive. The owners paid and they were happy.

Dove, they look scrumptious!

After last post I went out and dug up the GH tomatoes. They were covered in whitefly, never had it before. I sprayed every other day for about 10 days with soap solution to no avail. Now I've sprayed the empty GH with insect killer. No bees or ladybirds in it.

I wonder if Clari's knickers will ever turn up?

Lily you were so pretty, I bet you still are, can't have changed that much.

Thank you all for your kindness about the little pussycat. I was feeling a bit low about it.

Went shopping this morning, hung out washing, lunched, had a snooze, watched Escape to the Country, where has the day gone? Must clear out the dead tomatoes in the GH and plant out the rest of the violas.
