 General view of top two terraces, another wall, lawn and beds lower down, also another lawn and bed on other side of house.

Congratulations Lily!

DD, looking good, what a lot of work you've done. I think you look slimmer than last year, or is that because of the running?

I was working in the garden until it was too dark to see properly, then I came in and did a load of ironing.

Lovely photos. What a gorgeous blue, Lyn.

I kept going on about tulips in the autumn. Here are some of them.

That's lovely, baza.

Anyone done any gardening today?

No, you don't, because you told him the paths looked lovely. Is he trustworthy weeding the beds? I won't let OH in my flowers!

Just got in from the garden. Was weeding then watered in GH and veg garden seeds and terrace pots. Now it's too dark to see what I'm doing.

Topbird, I know just what you mean, got all those weeds as well - though there are a lot fewer after the last two days.

Your house is looking  great now, ighten, what a lot of work you've done.

Yviestevie, for a ghastly moment I thought SIL had been let loose in your garden!

Spent the morning weeding. Back from supermarket. Got lots of dog food for house sitter to feed Tigger and stuff for making lunch sitting in the airport on Thursday. The strike is off , if the French papers are correct.

Morning all. I love Wisteria too. Dove, that is stunning, church looks pretty good too.

Weeding today, supermarket this afternoon, mostly dog food as we are hoping to go to England on Thursday. But there will probably be an air controllers' strike, so we may have to drive and take a ferry. Must ring house sitter. Ryanair was still taking bookings though last night.

I agree with you, Shadoweaver, about Bergenia and Mahonia but Sweet Peas??? Have you lost your sense of smell, and what about all the pretty colours?

I'm knackered, stiff and achey. Cut down and cleared up a lot of stuff that I hadn't done in March as I was ill. Planted a rose, "Compassion" against the wall at the back of the long border. Soil was horrid, full of clay and stones, so dug out 3 wheelbarrow loads and changed it for nicer soil, rotted manure and GP compost. Then did a load of weeding and moved a day lily. Sun was getting too hot and I was fed up with clay, so moved to middle bed and made a start on that.
