HELLO FORKERS!

Mrs. G, the flooding hasn't been as bad in France and the wind in the last couple of days wasn't quite as strong as in the UK, but it's still been bad. I've never known such a wet winter. Brittany, the Var in South East France, the West Coast and base of Pyrenees have all had orange and red weather alerts and huge tidal waves and floods. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-25802278

HELLO FORKERS!

Been a really awful day today weatherwise, rain, wind, cold. At least the plumber has been and fixed the 2 radiators in the sitting room that stopped working. There is a woodburner in there though. OH is going to put a shelf above the one under the window so I can put my baby plants there.

Went out to a friend's for lunch, drove by the side of the river which is full up, with sheets of water in the adjoining fields.

Glad you enjoyed yourselves and weren't blown away, but I was so looking forward to seeing what you all looked like. Bother.

The phone rang when I was writing that so I didn't see what puncdoc wrote. How scarey for you, hope you and your house will be OK.

Good morning all. A bit of sun! -1° Going to supermarket and DIY place. OH says he'll put a shelf over the radiator under the sitting room window to put my seedlings on. No window sill, it's on the outside, thick stone wall.

Thought I'd have another go at laying the paving stones on the the veg garden path. Wasn't raining, as soon as I started it poured. Happens every time! But I suppose that is a minor detail compared with the troubles others are having.

Good thing they are doing the filling early Dove, can lead to nasties such as abscesses if not treated.

How old are the boys, Tracey?

Dove, see you've been reading the "Hi from Worcestershire" thread, the world is your lobster, 'cos the lady didn't like oysters! Note to others, it's really interesting, the lady has sold her house and is going to go round the world in a camper van with her large dog and she's quite elderly, well over 27!

New Garden!

Good luck with it all. How exciting! I find April is a pretty good month for sowing in the veg garden. Hopefully it will have dried out a bit and the ground will be warming up. Potatoes, peas, spinach, beetroot, carrots, parsnips and more can be sown in the ground. Runner beans and French beans can be started in the greenhouse. I would buy little plants of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, courgettes for planting out in May after the frosts.

Sensible to leave the flower borders for this year until you know what's what, but you could have annuals in pots for colour.

Buddleias can be pruned very hard, but they will still make a lot of growth and become pretty big again.
