You have a pretty lovely place, David S.

Thank you. That rose is William Shakespeare, think I've sent it before, but I'm pleased with it, it was such a little thing when I bought it from a French garden centre this spring, reduced price.

What a lovely delicate rose that is, OL.

We used to live in Kent before moving to France. We had acid clay, very fertile, grew stunning roses. Used to exhibit in the village show.

We are going to England on holiday and will visit David Austin's rose garden in Shropshire.

HELLO FORKERS!

Lizzie I would house sit for you and do your beans and pick your sweet peas

 

Thanks Lesley, but, sorry, the post is taken. But will he do the picking?

29°, too hot to garden. Been preparing to go away.

Where's my tidy gene?

I just opened my garden for a charity garden party. Afraid I did lots of weeding on my knees on a mat with a trowel. But what made the biggest difference was OH mowing. Took him a fraction of the time it took me! That was last Saturday, weeds, especially bindweed are coming back already!

Nothing venture, nothing gain. Mine is in a pot, but it's in full sun. Feed and water is the key when you haven't much room.

It's hard to choose one star this morning. William Shakespeare rose, I only bought it this spring, very small, looked in need of a home and now look at it! A blue salvia that flowers all summer, covered with bees. A red Sweet William which the photo doesn't do justice to. It really shines out.
