Hello, gardeningfantic. I have about an acre of garden, but it's hard to tell as it's all round the house and some is grass, shrubs and trees. But I have about 8 acres of rather poor grazing in paddocks - but nice because it's full of wild flowers - and a lot of wild woodland. Deer, wild boar, stone marten, red squirrel, badgers, foxes, hares, and European grey dormice live in the woods.

My first OH (died) had the pillars built when we moved here as we had similar when we lived in Kent with roses growing up them.

I grew 3 from seed 6 years ago. I gave one to a friend who moved house and didn't take it, she said it had got quite big. Mine died! The other went to my daughter who has just told me it has it's first (and only) flower! Hoping for more next year.

Evening all. Not much gardening done in last two days. Too much rain. Rain forecast for next two days too. Outdoor tomatoes look miserable, French beans static. Beetroot and spinach not germinating. Gardener (me) has arthritis in hands and knee, tendonitis in right elbow (too much weeding) and dental appt. on Saturday, depressed.

My children wrote on slate with chalk at school! And that is really true, it was primary school in SW France.

Is there a chance the top photo could be this? Campanula Persicfolia. Hard to tell upside down!

Chicky, your garden sounds like mine! I have a lower wall deer exposed bit and 2 years ago new OH fenced off the upper bit as the deer ate nearly everything except the foxgloves and I was on the point of giving up. The upper bit is such fun now as when I plant something I know it has a chance and some of the roses are recovering.
