I usually wear old jeans, an old pullover (T shirt in summer) and wellies. I aways wear gloves for weeding, never know what might attack you - forgotten rose pruning, baby stinging nettle, slugs(ugh).

Sorry, Discodave didn't mean to make you feel like crap  Have you seen Lily-Louise's greenhouse? It's amazing. I was expecting people to think mine is untidy, but then I tried not to include the messy corner in the photo!

It's about an acre. Living in France, gardens in the country are often quite big as there's more spare land. But have you seen the pics of Lily-louise's incredible greenhouse?

Here are my babies in the greenhouse. I've pricked out the tomatoes and ageratums, the rest in this half are plug plants, mail order. Other half has 3 propogaters, French marigolds to prick out very soon, penstemons are stll rather small, growing very slowly, zinnias are germinating. Hvaen't sown cucumbers, courgettes, beans yet. Nasturtiums in cells coming up nicely.

A lot of the daffodils were blind this year. The forsythia is 22 years old and wasn't pruned for most of it's life so looking a bit woody in the middle.

Only 2 days and this thread that I was enjoying has gone way back. So here is my greenhouse (well, half of it) with all my new babies.

I'm wearing a beige pullover at the moment. I like beige. What is the matter with beige?
