Glad to see punkdoc is back, he was away before I went away. Just went to his posts to catch up. Found one though that was started by Mike Allen. When Mike was ill everyone was so kind, but it seems to have gone a bit haywire since. Interesting thread though, ended up on a different subject from the beginning. Dove was very tactfull and wave calming. 

Mystery Plant?

Now I see this was started in June, missed it then.

Mystery Plant?

I live in Dordogne and I have that plant. Didn't answer earlier as I was in Yorkshire, but it is definitely Clerodendron Bungei. It needs pruning once it's got going as it tends to grow up in one stem with a flower on top, but it can be tender in winter. Also sends up suckers.

Is that Jacqui with name changed to Dordogne Damsel?

Here is mine.

AWB, looks like an orange toadstool, possibly a Hygrocybe or wax cap in English.

Morning all.

Rain and thunder, dog is a nervous wreck! So no weeding in the jungle of a veggie garden. Did 2 hours and 2 barrowloads yesterday. Can now walk up a path and see the French beans! Broccoli needs rescuing before it disappears under thick coarse grass.

Evening all.

We had a lovely stay in Yorkshire with old school friend. Saw uncle. Had some good meals in pubs in Ripon and other places. Weather was lovely. Visited a fantastic garden near York.  Called "Breezy Knees", has anyone heard of it? 

Daughter with 3 small sons and her OH looked after my place and had a holiday here, visiting various Dordogne touristy places. They live near Poitiers. They watered all the pots and nothing has died. Posted some pics on the garden gallery thread.

Hello again. I've been away in Yorkshire for a week. Daughter and family have been staying here and looking after things. All my pots and garden have been well watered and are still alive.

You must be very fit, that's twice as fast as walking time and it was a long way.

Wow, David, amazing scenery. How long did it take you to walk 36 miles?
