Hello Brumbull, so glad you are back. I tried to send you a message to ask you to come back, but it wouldn't accept it. I wrote to Brummie Ben instead as it seemed to me you were friendly.

What Type of Garden is Yours.

Pam's garden is incredible. I've seen photos before. NigelCoad's garden is very lovely, seen photos on another thread.

I live in Dordogne, France and I have made a flower garden out of an old farmyard that was a mass of brambles and nettles when we moved to this house 22 years ago. Not the easiest climate as the winters are cold and the summers can be very hot, also there was a drought in 2011 and this winter it's always raining or snowing. We've had to fence the flower garden main bit as the deer came in from the forest and ate all my flowers and roses. I have a veg garden too, quite big, had to fence that as well. Clay and limestone here, but much improved now as loads of manure and compost added over the years. A photo is the easiest way to show you.

 This is spring last year.

Glad you sound happy in the new job Sue.

Nice to see Figrat in her garden! Deano and Figrat's new beds looking very neat, hope we get pics when they're full of veggies.

Don't know if anyone noticed I said this morning it was as lovely sunny day and I wondered if Spring had sprung? Well, it hasn't. Since then it poured and there was a hailstorm this afternoon. Bother.

Welcome back Brumbull. I thought you'd left us. I've enjoyed reading your posts and it would have been a great shame if this silly upset had forced you to leave the forum. This is a good thread and lots of nice sounding peple have joined it.

Bunny, when you've been size 10 most of your life then size 14 feels fat, especially when you live in the slimmest country in Europe. I'm bigger boned than most French women too. Clothes shops here only go up to size 16 and that's often out of stock. They start at size 6.

Morning all.

I don't think the other thread is trying to make trouble at all. It's a bit of a misunderstanding as the person who started the thread was fairly new. I think he was just starting a thread to be friendly and a lot of people liked it. It has a different character to this one, it was just using the name "forkers" which is only used on this thread was an unfortunate choice.

Lovely sunny day here. 6° at 8.30. Has spring sprung?

Don't know how you all eat so much cake without getting fat, I can't even look at it  Was size 10, now 14.
