It looks like Flore Pleno in the photo here:

Has spring arrived for you yet?

In South West France, Dordogne, you would be thinking Spring had arrived. It thought it had about 10 days ago, but it changed it's mind. Zero temps every morning and pouring now. A few daffodils, crocuses, snowdrops are on the way out. Tulips that are meant to flower in April are just poking out 1" tall. We've had snow several times.

I hope you all had a good evening, so full of mine I didn't say anything about yours.

Back from the cinema opera live. It was great, the screen was huge and they showed the real stage just as it was happening, including the prop changes in the intervals. Flo would have liked that!. It was a little known opera, Francesca da Rimini, by the New York Met. Francesca has to marry one of three brothers. She and Paolo fell in love, but the brother the parents made her marry wasn't him, it was the one with the gammy leg. Anyway, it all ended in tragedy and death, as usual. They will be doing a great programme from next autumn, with Tosca, La Boheme, Prince Igor and others.

Then we went for a pizza at OH's favourite pizza place in a very old building with exposed stone walls, beams and a proper pizza oven.

It's pouring with rain now. It was nice this morning and we gardened, but it started to rain when we went out.

I liked it last night, this is what I just wrote in another thread.  -  Did anyone see Gardener's World? Good one, I thought. I thought Monty was looking better, he was on form -  full of enthusiasm. Joe was at home with his contemporary design, Carol was her usual bubbly self, bit more eye make-up than usual! But her subject was mahonias which are one of my least favourite shrubs, boring and prickly for most of the year.

Morning all. Fun party last night.

I hope the retail therapy and breakfast out cheer you up Goldie.

Goldi, I expect it's a case of mistaken identity, or someone is jealous because you are younger than them. Neighbours can be weird sometimes, so I hear. I'm lucky, I don't have neighbours.
