What a lovely spot that garden is in, ighten. Some lovely gardens here, have been to the Helmsley walled garden and the Sussex Prairie Gardens.

When on holiday by Lake Garda last week we visited Sigurta Park which is huge and really more of a park than a garden. Loads of Busy Lizzies!

I think jenny j's idea of a fence on your side with a trellis on it is good. Or a rustic pole trellis. Years ago, my husband made a rustic trellis, using chestnut posts, quite tall, like the one in the photo. You could put one on your side of the fence, should be allowed as it's quite open. Ours filled up quickly as we planted roses and clematis up it and made a bed in front with cottage garden plants such as perennial geraniums.

Thank you, Dove and Artjak.

Good luck with it Steve. I think it's a good thing that you want to involve the inmates, some of them were probably good gardeners when they were younger and will be able to advise. Good therapy for them too.

Look forward to seeing photos.

Lucky you lot, off visiting again. The only offputting thing is the loo! I'm posting here so I don't miss any pics you may send. Have a lovely time.

Morning all.

It's my birthday, so not doing anything much - at least no weeding! Being taken out to restaurant tonight.

DD, he was the man I visited in hospital the day I saw you. His wife, my friend, is being very brave, I expect she is still in a state of shock - although it was expected.

Still haven't caught up properly with the forum, will have a look today as I'm not going to do any weeding.

 It's my birthday today , being taken out to a restaurant tonight.

Happy belated birthday Verdun. I missed it as we were in Italy. Here's a donut as you've probably finished the birthday ones by now.

Back from the funeral only to find another email saying another lady I know here in France's husband died yesterday, funeral Friday

Think I recognise that bed DD, good luck. Won't be so bad next year, once you get it sorted.

We still have friends staying, they came to Italy with us, so haven't really had time to catch up. We had a great time and while we were away friends stayed here to have a holiday in Dordogne. It was lovely to see them again too, wish they could have stayed a bit longer. I first met her here on the forum about 2 years ago!

What a horrid thing to happen, Dove, thank you for the explanation. Hugs. Hope you heal quickly.

Going to a funeral tomorrow, a friend's husband died, he was elderly, but I fear she is going to be so lonely.
