We've been out most of the day, chez friends. So no gardening done.

DD I would be a bit wary about hebes, never managed to keep them, they don't like Dordogne winters. Tried all sorts. Had 2 new ones last year, presents, but both died in the winter though it was milder than usual - but it was wetter than usual.

It's my birthday

Doesn't go right way up on my laptop.

Too much gravel!

You could have a dry gravel garden

Scrape away the gravel, lay down a weed membrane. Cut holes and plant some thyme, lavender, rosemary, santolina sort of plants and re-lay the gravel. There are lots of photos in that link, some simple, some more ambitious.

What about chutneys and jams made with your own produce?

Could you have plant sales at other times of the year?

It's a yummy sticky cake made with oatmeal and black treacle. Best with ginger in it.

I use a container like the one Dove posted on the previous page. But before that I never had a bird with its feet caught. Better be safe than sorry though.

You must be mad Yvie, especially with a sore throat. Go to bed with a hot honey, lemon and brandy.

My Lucifer hasn't spread as much as I wanted it too. Probably too hot and dry here in the summer.

Morning all.

Your bed is looking great DD. Are you sure you don't want to join the Open Gardens?I've never bought or seen an intact empty bottle of wine.

Going to supermarket.

Happy birthday Lily Pilly
