HELLO FORKERS!

Lily Pilly, I have answered your question about Bordeaux Uni as best as I can on your thread. If your nephew is fluent in French he needs to go to Bordeaux and search in person taking all papers about identity, qualifications and guarantees and references that he can.

Accommodation in Bordeaux ?

These are the people who help with student lodgings in Bordeaux.

http://www.crous-bordeaux.fr/logements/  My 4 children all went to Bordeaux University a few years ago. There were about 4000 university lodgings for over 30,000 students. Low income families have first priority. Most students rent unfurnished flats and furnish them with borrowed and cheap furniture, bought at shops like Conforama. Bordeaux is full of flat hunting students in the summer holidays. Not always easy. Ask the CROUS, estate agents, small ads. Need to pay a hefty deposit, which covers first months rent and damages. The damages bit should be returned at the end of the rental period if there is no damage to the flat.

I live about 2 hours from Bordeaux but we were in the catchment area for the University.

I thought I had answered. When flowers are hungry or hungry because they are too thirsty to absorb nutrients they, and their leaves, go paler. Flowers are usually smaller too. It happened to a Nelly Moser clematis in a pot that I forgot to feed and when the housesitter didn't water a David Austin rose in a pot enough it happened then.

This mornings posts made me laugh

Went to Hyde Hall on our way back to Eastbourne. Lovely, but not as lovely as the other 3 RHS gardens. But it's young and new projects are underway. Bought a clematis "Crystal Fountain". OH is a bit worried about how all the plants will fit in the car on our way back to France.

Morning all. Suffolk isn't flat. In fact I've been surprised at how curvy it is, lovely rolling hills, fields and woods, pretty houses from pink to beamy, lots of thatch.

Free zinnia seeds are tomatoes!

My zinnias were zinnias, rather leggy when young, grown in GH then planted out. Started flowering about 3 weeks ago.

I think it could be the fertiliser. I've noticed it with clematis too. Roses are hungry, thirsty plants.

Evening all, what's left of it. Still in Suffolk. We looked at pretty villages today, such as Lavenham and Kersey. Saw Gainsborough's house and paintings in Sudbury. Went to Bury Saint Edmunds. Had salmon and salad in a pub. Drank a half of Adnams bitter. It rained but didn't matter too much.

Tomorrow we are going back to Eastbourne, via Hyde Hall.

Pub in pretty Kersey. Some houses are painted and some are beamy.
