HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 08:59

Morning all. Which cake looks fantastic?

Was meant to be huge thunderstorm here last night with lots of rain, but just a couple of lightening flashes, a few rumbles and hardly any rain. Would have liked rain, now I'll have to put sprinklers on this evening, metred water.

Farrier has been.

I had one son who loved the shower and one who wasn't keen.

Had the odd rumble of thunder, raining now. Was very still, windy now.

What's the star in your garden right now

My stars are roses, but some are nearly over now. Sweet Williams are making a bright red cheerful patch with blue delphiniums behind them.

That's the deer fenced bit, there's more! But not as planted up with flowers, more trees and shrubs. Don't forget this France, about 3 times the amount of land available as in the UK.  for a much cheaper price. And we've been here  in this house since 1990. Except there wasn't a garden then.

I was shocked to hear of Rik Mayall dying too, younger than me. Does anyone know what from yet?

Funny, since I mentioned notifications they've come back! Well done the GW team.

So hot and humid today.

Thought no one had posted since this morning, my email notifications have stopped - again. Is it a Bank Hol in the UK? It is here.

Very hot and muggy, hazy sky 30°

Clearing a garden

In June's Gardener's World mag, Monty Don has written an article about adapting gardens for your needs for everyday living, children, animals, lack of time etc. He will be doing a TV programme about 10 lived in gardens. Sounds interesting.
