Hello Smokin Donkey. I live in France too, Dordogne. I'm always weeding, except when it's too hot. I'm sure I have more weeds than most people, is it something to do with France, even the ants and slugs are bigger here!

Perhaps Hypericum Calycinum would work.

Plant or weed?

Looks like aquilegia leaves. Aquilegia is usually lovely but it can start seeding itself and going back to being wild, then it can become a pest.

Shade and dry loving plants

I have a place like that where Periwinkle (Vinca) thrives. Only problem is that it's spread into a border where I don't want it. But if your place isn't on the end of a border it may be OK. Another plant I have in a dry shady place is Euonymus Silver Queen.

Hidden Valley was one of my favourites too. No imposing stately home, but a real gardener's garden with plants for all seasons. Tiny lanes leading to it.

Enjoyed the before and after pics and new project pics.

DHC, I like the disaster pot, what's the matter with it?

Thank you for the lovely photos. Sounds exciting getting to the sunken garden. You look young and slim.

Hi Keen. It was in Devon, may have been Rosemoor.

I like lysimachia, it's all so easy and grows in my problem clay bed. Have clethroides, pretty but tends to wander. I also like centranthus ruber, planted one plant years ago, but it quickly decided it didn't want to be in a bed with decent earth so it moved off to cracks in the walls and stone terraces, where I like it very much.

Since Keen has posted his photo I will be very brave. This is me in a typical pose!
