Prepare for a heatwave!!!

Posted: 13/10/2014 at 11:01

That link says up to 21°, that's just nice weather not a heatwave! For us in Dordogne it's 23°, but we had that last week and yesterday afternoon.

Frankie or Pixie to win. Good thing we all have different opinions or life would be so boring!

Glass V Polycarbonate Greenhouse

I have polycarbonate because my horses in the paddock next door gallop about kicking up stones. I've found it to be more insulating than glass.

Who's afraid of varginia creeper

Posted: 13/10/2014 at 10:00

I have the Virginia creeper with 5 separate leaves, not the more controllable palmate one (which I also have). Mine is absolutely rampant, not planted by me, planted by a previous owner over 30 years ago. It's popped up by wandering roots in flower beds where I don't want it, it's trying to suffocate the wisteria, hydrangea petiolaris, honeysuckle and a Felicité Perpetué rose. I've tried digging it up, cutting it down, spraying it, to no avail. It's now got into the veggie garden on the deer fence and it's growing in the woods. How did it get there? seeds? I hate it.

That dress could have been lovely if she had taken the apron off which made it look stiff and awkward. I don't think it was time for Jennifer to go. Judy, the lobster, even Tim Wonnacott (though I quite like him), but the 2 in the dance off could have stayed another couple of weeks.

 Get well soon, Fairy.

Those poppy photos are so moving and beautiful.

Lovely day here, so far. Just off to get a few more daffodils from the GC as I didn't have quite enough to go around the Mirabelle tree, will drop in at a little nursery on the way. Must plant up more pots this afternoon.

That sounds a great day Lily.

I enjoyed my lunch out at the new restaurant run by a young couple. There were 16 of us.

Can't get peanuts for birds in France, but sunflower seeds are cheap and sold in the supermarket. Sunflowers are grown all around here, so pretty when out and so sad and messy when over.

Well, I was disappointed by the public's choice tonight. I thought there were 3 other couples who were worse than the 2 in the dance off.
