Thank you everyone. Yes, John, they are Eremurus coming out. It was great to meet you too, Bev. Salino, I don't know the name, a friend gave me the cutting and she'd forgotten. I like the name Etoile Violette and it does look like that.

Good Evening FORKERS

Been to a concert (piano) in a French friend's garden, followed by buffet dinner. She has a big old manor house and a typical French garden, lawn, trees, no flower beds. Big shame it rained. Her 6th time and the other years it was warm and sunny. Audience, around 150, wore warm clothes and macs and umbrellas.

This afternoon I podded 4 buckets of broad beans, picked by OH, while I listened to the evening's pianist on U tube. Thibaut Surugue - in case anyone wants to know. He was very good.

Garden has grown a lot while I've been away. Unfortunately so have the weeds and some plants, like delphiniums have outgrown their stakes.


Identify a weed please

They are weeds, I'm just having a mental blank as to name, I know them well! Do pull them up or they will set seed everywhere.

Morning all. I'm back from garden visiting, family seeing in England. Paris was a nightmare yesterday, French hols starting. Stuck in a traffic jam needing a wee, not fun!

Garden here is like a jungle. OH was shocked at the lawns, out mowing last night. How do weeds grow so big in 2 weeks? Delphiniums and tomatoes needed tying up, did it before I went but the delphs has grown about 2 more feet. Broad beans getting too big already, loads of mangetout peas, I'll have to throw some away, too big.

The sooner the support is put up the better. They may not need it at the moment but when they start growing it will be harder to put up the wires. They don't take long to do.

They are scented, but not strongly, rather light and fresh, not heavy and musky.

I think that is a good choice. I have two, they do a really good flowering followed by smaller flushes. I've had mine over 20 years.

This is one.

Yes, Pashley Manor seemed a bit bigger than I remembered. There was a new entrance and gift shop building and i think the paths around the lake were extended. Also 7 new loos!

Front garden very uninteresting
