They bloom on new growth. I cut mine down each spring.

Parts of France are beautiful, but the public loos leave a lot to be desired - if you can find one. They are gradually changing them from holes in the ground to proper loos. Rare to find loo paper. French people always have a roll of pink loo paper in their cars. The French are much less inhibited than the English and don't mind men and women sharing loos. They look on the human body as a normal thing that everyone has - which I think is quite sensible. The public loos in my local town, Périgueux, are now those self cleaning stainless steel ones, push a button to enter - but they are often out of order!

I can't grow acid loving plants or plants that are borderline hardy. Can't grow evergreen ceonothus. Lavender and rosemary grows well. Heleniums wouldn't grow in one bed then I tried them in another and they grew well. Cyclamen hederofolium have taken off under a tree.

is will you use the extra hour next weekend

Caz showed me a useful tip when you aren't getting emails. You go to "latest posts" and on the right it says "view followed threads" or something like that and you can see the threads you've been following.

Bunny, OH is not a singing horse! Or have I misread something?

Caz, big thanks for the followed thread tip. I must be a bit thick, never noticed it!

Son was coming to supper but held up so I'm going to him in about 10 mins. He's about 40 mins away. Having steak. OH doesn't like steak much but he's out at choir.

Potted all the bought plants except one tray and must pot on some of my seedlings. Pruned the wisteria except the bit that needs a ladder.

OH always look in all his pockets for the car keys. I think beige can be a classy colour. Chic!

what do u think this might be

GG one horse is unrideable because she's a bag of nerves when riding out and used to rear, spin and bolt. I'm too old now for that sort of thing. I used to do dressage on her. She would have been the "lookout" horse in a herd, always watching for danger. She's lovely and affectionate when she feels safe, like in the sand school or if I'm on the ground next to her. She's 18 now so I've "retired" her. The other one is very submissive so easy, but she's pretty lively so very responsive, good when one has arthritis! She's the white one.

Must get out now and pot up the 100's of plug plants that have arrived!
