HELLO FORKERS!

Ooops, all this talk about cannas and I've just realised mine are forgotten in a box in the garage. Wonder what I'll find.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Sorted the strawberry bed when we got back from the lunch party. Soil had gone very heavy, what happened to last year's manure and compost?  Dug in a lot more and planted some new strawberries.

Toscana Strawberries

I think strawberries can rot if planted a bit too deep and the winter is wet. Has happened to some of my ordinary strawberries in the ground, but not with the Toscana, which are in a pot.

My Toscana are pretty, but I don't think the fruit was that sweet, rather sharp in fact. Still going strong.

DD it's looking great.

Any idea what this is?

Could it be a wild salvia or clary? There are lots growing in my paddocks, less than an hour from you. http://gallery.nen.gov.uk/asset64116-.html

Just finished re-doing the strawberry bed. Getting gloomy outside. Midges.

I like Old Speckled Hen too, but have to wait until we go to England. Should be going on Thursday, but there may be a strike

Lovely and sunny here today 21°.

Back from the choir lunch party. Really enjoyed it, nice people, lot of chatter and some songs and jokes told. Wonderful Bring and Share lunch, huge selection.

On the way back we stopped at 2 GCs on the west of Périgueux to leave some flyers for the Open Gardens. One had the Charlottte and Anais strawberries that I wanted and the other had the little leaf Lilac Syringa microphylla 'Superba' that I have been looking for for some time. That second nursery, a small privately run one, was very interested in the Open Gardens.

Thanks Chicky. They aren't all out yet, those are early ones.

Evening all. I've been out all day, an annual meeting with lunch then went to see son as his baby son has started crawling. More like a caterpillar really! Cute.

Out tomorrow too, going to OH's Choir's lunch party.

My agastache, Blue Boa and Black Adder were bought in pots last autumn. They looked fine. I re-potted them and put them in a cold frame for winter. Black Adder is growing, but nothing is happening in Blue Boa's pot.
