I bought a garden claw some years ago on a friend's advice, but can't get on with it at all on my clay. Now my clay is better after lots of manure so perhaps I should give it another go. But my garden is so big and it's so small, makes me feel like an ant! For the veggie garden the rotovator is so much more efficient.

This nursery has it listed  http://www.chapelendnurserysperry.co.uk/Roses.html 

But you're right, no one has plants, but several sell them in bouquets.

 I bought a hoe head like this and put a short handle on it. I like to weed kneeling on a mat and I've found it very useful, cutting through the surface of the soil it loosens the soil and digs up weed seedlings. I'm not very good at using a hoe standing up as it gives me back ache and I tend to hoe up the plants as well as the weeds!

Not exactly a garden picture, but I'd forgotten about this amaryllis and left it in a pot for 2 years, only being watered by rain. Then I found it being eaten by a slug so I re-potted it and have been feeding and watering it and look what it's done!

DD, I had extra cake too for the same reason (no, really it was because I'm greedy). I mentioned meeting you today, but don't think anyone noticed.

Welcome TC, glad you are enjoying your garden. It's great when things you've planted come up.

Because he's very popular and 5 million watch his show. He has character, so they say.

Well done Dove's daughter.

I went to the meeting about Open Gardens and Dordogne Damsel was there too. Lots of publicity posters to spread about and how to collect the money. Lots of lovely cake too

Good morning Marion.

Very important to drink plenty, sometimes one forgets to drink when busy, but I'm sure you're very sensible and you know that already. That's the ex-nurse in me!

Morning all.

Going to a meeting this afternoon for people opening their gardens under the new French open gardens scheme for children with cancer. http://www.opengardens.eu/ 

Lovely day again.

Wintersong, how big is your garden? You've done a lot in it and still have more plans. The photos I've seen are very pretty.
