HELLO FORKERS!

Back home in France.

Dog has been very happy with the house sitter, but plants less so, well, some of them. Some of my big pots very dry and some seedlings in the GH really unhappy. Gave them all a good soak and I'll see how they are tomorrow, but water just runs straight through dry compost. But HS did make our evening meal which was nice of her.

Should look good Matty.

My flower seedlings are bigger than they were a week ago when we left, but still pretty small.

I love bluebells, they are coming out in the woods in East Sussex.

We went to Michelham Priory today, beautiful and peaceful, but not really a full on gardeners sort of garden, lovely building. Then we went to Alfriston Clergy house, cute and pretty and very old.

Anyone done any gardening today?

My lawns take about 4 hours by the time you've done the bank and the twiddly bits. Thank God for OH or I wouldn't have time for the weeding.

Thank you to all who gave advice on Garibaldi biscuits and mint creams. Tracked them down in Waitrose and 97 yr old auntie in nursing home was delighted.

May go and look at a garden tomorrow. Last day here before going back home to France.

Morning all.

Ouch Bekkie.

Sun is shining.

I would love a share of Poldark, but don't think OH would be happy and Poldark may think a 27 year old would be too old for him. So I'll stand back and admire from afar as though he were a beautiful painting.

We met some of my mother's cousins today and found that the daughter of one of them, my second cousin, used to live opposite OH's daughter.

I agree there, can't watch them on TV anymore. Greg is creepy and I hate the way John eats.

Hello all, I'm a bit of a latecomer to this thread, seem to have missed it. And my friend Matty is here! I suppose in Feb/march I was too busy having bronchitis and I hadn't yet decided to have a cut flower bed. But I decided to do one in the veggie garden and sowed cornflowers, clarkia, larkspurs, calendula and lavatera Silver Cup directly into it. Oh and French seeds called Balsamine that I don't know. I have Cosmos, Ageratum Blue Mink and Zinnias in the GH which I will plant mid May.

When we left France last Thursday to spend a week in England (family visit) they had just germinated so I hope the house sitter is looking after them.

Sunny here. I have been glad of the fleece.

There were plants for sale at Bodium Castle yesterday, at least 4 that I want, including that purple lysimachia that Verdun mentioned, but we are going back by Ryanair
