HELLO FORKERS!

Glad you had a good day, Dove.

Panda, I've been reading one of those naughty books, but I don't think it's really my sort of thing, I like comfort.

If Dove is your grandma, Verdun, then you can't be born yet.

That's OK David. Could depend on soil or what you feed it on, even the light quality when the photo was taken.

Tracey, Iceberg is lovely. Gertrude Jekyll would probably be my first choice for a pink one. This isn't my photo, it's from Crocus, but it's a David Austin rose.

 

Require clarification regarding feeding established fruit trees & bushes...

Raspberries are fruit bushes and they need feeding in Spring. I give mine organic fertiliser in March and mulch with rotted manure.

Morning all, Happy Birthday Dove, but I expect Dove is being wined and dined now.

It's hasn't put it how I put it with the titles on top and the rose on top. Weird!

Here is my "The Pilgrim", looks paler and more two tone than David's.

Hello PoddingtonP

Wow, Toblerone cheesecake, never had it, sounds yummy.

Lily, I haven't seen a sky like that for ages and ages. Raining here in sunny Dordogne, has been for weeks.

Quiet day, did ironing, planned which bedding plants, watched Place in the Sun, Home or Away (while ironing) and Escape to the Country, dyed hair (honey, chestnut, translated from French!). Deleted about 200 emails in inbox.

If it had a shed there are there concrete foundations underneath stopping the water draining away? It may be that the ground is just too wet because of all the rain this winter and will be better later. Have you dug in any compost? Compost and manure are better than sand for improving clay.
