I wasn't here early enough! Snap RB! I have parsnips like yours in the end of my veggie garden. We didn't eat them all and I didn't get round to digging them up. Magnificent. Wonder if they'll seed themselves. My perpetual spinach seeded itself last year, it was all over the place.

Had a good lunch with my son and the grandson's, 2 and 1, were adorable.

Was 25° today, have been watering the pots, even though it rained yesterday for an hour or so.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Started weeding and planting upper middle bed, then went to son for the rest of the day. Had a good lunch and the babies were sweet.

What a lot of gorgeousness! Love that purple allium against the Philadelphus and the way the pale pink lilac shows up against the dark background. RB's rose is a beautiful shape.

I've only seen Amsonia once, at Waterperry Gardens. Been wanting to buy it ever since, but never seen it for sale.

They have currants, sultanas and raisons in different size packets and prices in Leclerc in Trélissac. I use that soft brown sugar called Vergoise, comes light brown and dark brown, has more flavour. I'm not keen on candied peel so I use a spoon of marmalade instead. Isn't there a large supermarket anywhere near you?

Morning all.

What can't you get for the fruit cake DD? I can get everything I need in Leclerc, but it's not your local.

Going to weed the top middle bed then going to lunch with son and 2 small grandsons.

Mr Muscle, I can never see anything on the page until I click on my avatar on the top right hand corner, then I get my profile so I can click on messages and they come up in the old forum format.

Gosh you go to bed early RB. Or have you just snuck off to watch TV? Glad your son's leg is getting better. It sounded horrific.

I've spent most of the day in the garden, except when there was a downpour.

Going to lunch with son and small GSs tomorrow.

Had a marathon session of weeding, edging and planting today. Finished the upper trellis bed, the end bed, the woodland bed and the lower middle bed. Rain stopped play for a bit, but went out again, came in 30mins ago.
