HELLO FORKERS!

Thank you, Lesley.

I've just changed to winter bedding this morning, DD. We had the summer duvet and mattress side, but in real summer it's just a sheet.

Morning all. Good luck with the scan Hosta.

I will be in the GH potting on plug plants this morning.

We are off to England tomorrow for a few days for OH's auntie's Memorial Service. She was 97. He looked on her as a Grandmother.

Hello again, have been away a few days. Had family staying for weekend, new grandson's Christening.

Also box of plug plants arrived, violas, polyanthus, forget me nots, daisies etc, so have been busy potting them up.

Morning all.

There is a lovely dogs home, Twilight, for old dogs here in SW France, run by an English couple. They ask for old duvets and bedding for the dogs. http://www.twilightchiens.com/ 

Going to pot up my new plug plants, but must have a clear out of the cold frames first.

When I replaced a dead climbing rose (it had been decimated by deer over the years, now have a fence) I removed 2 wheelbarrow loads of earth and replaced it with earth from the veggie garden, compost and manure. New rose is doing OK.

Lesley, I have shelves full of old GW magazines as well. But I don't think I've looked at them again. They are too beautiful to throw away, I'm not very good at throwing things away, there is a wardrobe full of clothes I'm now too fat for in a spare room.

Gosh, am I a grubby person? I don't replace my duvets every year. I have 3, summer, winter and in between, each several years old. I do change the covers of course.

Don't think I've been here today, been busy cleaning 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and making up beds for the children and grandchildren's arrival, but I did make a start yesterday. Son and daughter coming tomorrow evening and other daughter on Saturday. Son 2's baby son being christened on Sunday, followed by meal in posh hotel. Also did shopping this morning.

A box full of plug plants arrived this morning. I've unwrapped them but will have to pot them on tomorrow. Hope to have lots of violas, polyanthus, double daisies and forget-me-nots for my Open Garden day in early May.

Have checked, found the answer. A wretched mole has tunnelled underneath it, so although I watered the roots were dangling.  Good thing I took some bits off it last autumn which are still alive but in a shadier spot.

Verdun I'm a great believer in adding manure etc. to planting holes

My biggest TT died this summer. Could the weather have been too hot and dry? 35° for about 2 weeks, but I did water it. It had looked good with Erysimum Jenny Brook.
