Great British Garden Revival

I really like Rachel de Thame and she has a similar taste in flowers to me. I saw a cut flowers programme by Sarah Raven, but although the same theme, it wasn't the same. I enjoyed the cut flowers bit and the tree bit.

R de T's bit reminded me of growing the flowers for my daughter's wedding a few years ago, took over a good chunk of the veggie garden! I bought the gypsophila, wouldn't germinate, and the lilies though.

I live in France and I see them regularly in summer.

Morning all.

Thank you for the recipe, Stacey, sounds yummy.

Amazing how often clothes aren't the size they say they are. I have skirts in 12, 14 and 16 which are all the same around the waist. French sizing tends to be smaller than the English. When I was size 10 (years ago!, now 14) I bought a pair of jeans in France marked size 44, which is size 16, that fitted perfectly.

Supermarket shopping this morning.

I'm so so bored stiff

My trouble is that in winter when I look at the garden I don't see the bare patches where hostas etc have died down or the dead plants I haven't cut down for protection and wildlife. At this time of year I see in my mind all those beautiful flowers that are decorating the covers of the seed packets. All growing in my garden! So, in order for the garden to look like my mental picture, I just have to go and buy those seeds!

Thank you Star Gaze Lily, I think you're nice too. And Verdun is nice. Did you get an unreasonable message, Verdun?

Thank you Stacey. Any chance of sending some of your ace ice cream recipes? I like nuts, chocolate and caramel and OH likes fruit esp. raspberries. Please  Just going to look up that book.
