Matty, why don't you like lupins? I think they look gorgeous here in this garden we visited in Devon last year.

 Dicentra spectabilis is just coming out. I love it's other name of "Lady in the Bath" when you pick a flower, hold it upside down and gently squeeze it sideways.

Should be more Ls. Lilac and Lily of the Valley, all coming out here now and smelling so sweet. In France people give each other sprigs of Lily of the Valley on the 1st May and people sell them on the roadsides.

What's the weather like in your area?

Raining in Dordogne. But needed after last weeks 25°

MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 30/04/2013 at 10:02

Good morning all. GG said later ones aren't up yet! I'm always a later one, but I've always fed horses, dog, cat and checked geenhouse and cold frames before reporting in. But I'm not an early riser either.

Raining today. Supermarket and GC, need more compost and bark chippings. Got to keep the weeding down somehow. Then housework

Did you say 94 Verbascum, Andy?. A few pages ago. They will look stunning en masse.

What a lot of progress Dannyboy, thanks for showing us.

Your garden looked wonderful Fairygirl, but I hope you aren't too sad parting with it. What is your new garden like?

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening all (bit late). No gardening today, out to lunch. Chilly morning. When we got home late afternoon it poured and still is. Makes a change from Thursday when it was 25°. Sometimes the weather runs one's life, wanted to garden tomorrow but I think it'll rain so better do some housework, not nearly so much fun.

Now I understand why you didn't want it for your jewel border.
