Hello all. We've been out most of the day. This morning went to the cemetery to tidy the plants and put a chrysanthemum (French tradition for All Saints) on 1st husband's grave.

Then we went to another lunch party to say goodbye to my friend who's moving back to England. She leaves tomorrow.

Then we went to the cinema to see the opera "Carmen" live from the New York Met. It was super.

I leave mine out in pots too, but I tie fleece around the pots and over the compost.

Dove's first brekkie, full English, looks a bit ambitious after a night like that. Fruit and a croissant sounds good and lots of coffee.

Have gardened today, cleared some of the bed at the bottom of the wall below the trellis. Full of weeds, and a horrible aster with tiny white flowers that go brown very quickly. Some one gave it to me at a plant swap and it was rampant. All gone (I hope). Dug up some of the Alchemilla Mollis, dug the compacted soil, added manure and compost, replanted the AM. Then planted pink tulips, forget-me-nots, pansies, a dark red heuchera and a cream and green Brunnera. Bit shaded because of apple trees. Have the next section to do, covered with lamium, ivy and grass.

How warm is it with you today?
