What is your weather like? (2)

Friday morning it was 0° but no frost, then a lovely day. Saturday morning was 1° then sun. This morning was warmer but quite a cloudy day.

Those are both so different and both are lovely. Like the contrast of light and dark in Fairy's and the pretty colours of Joyce's.

Thanks for the recipes, Obelixx. Will be good for my veggie sister when she comes to stay. OH liked my herby flatbreads.

Thanks. I only put them together because I didn't want to throw them away.

This isn't an planned arrangement and it's not in a jam jar, but I'm posting it anyway. I broke the Salvia Amistad when weeding and the ageratum, self seeded, was growing among the petunias in a trough that I was replanting with pansies.

Obelixx said "I'm a 60's music child and found the 70s, 80s and 90s to be dire by comparison with one or two exceptions. " - Same here.


Haven't done weeding yet. OH bought some gram flour (chickpea), never used it before so have tried a couple of recipes for herby flatbreads. OK, but not totally inspiring. The one grilled with grated cheese on wasn't bad but I'm on a diet. Changed sheets and hung out washing.

No wonder I haven't heard of The Travelling Wilburys, that was the late 80s and we moved to France in 1985. The music stars here were mostly unheard of in the UK. Just out of interest, has anyone heard of Daniel Balavoine? He died in a helicopter crash in the year after we moved. The French were in mourning but I'd never heard of him.

Morning all.


Am I the only person who's never heard of Tom Petty? The music scene in France isn't the same as in England.


Got up late this morning, been reading in bed. A friend lent me a book called "The Dry", a whodunnit. Hard to put down.


Sun is shining, shall do some weeding.

Flowers deer don't like to eat

You wouldn't envy it if you had it! Reduced me to tears. You spend a lot of time creating a lovely garden then there are no flowers. We fenced the veg garden too, they ate the spinach, lettuces, cabbages, carrots, peas, sweet corn and all the runner bean leaves to chest height.
