Sunflower Lady, just bung em in - nothing venture, nothing gain, if they flower  but if not then you'll know for next time and you can tell us if it's OK, because, actually, I don't really know!

The Gardeners Boy, that's dreadful, MS may not be counted as a killer but it's so long term you'd think the NHS could manage something. Hugs to you and your wife. And you've kept your sense of humour,, I wish doughnuts grew!

I haven't looked here for a bit and I see that Lily has sent me a lovely get well card. It's worked! I'm better, thank you.

Morning all. Another lovely sunny day, but there was a frost again. Must do some more pruning and transplant a Nelly Moser who is being squeezed out between 2 roses.

It's my birthday

Hello Love to garden, welcome back, good to see you here again. I will always associate you with the lovely rose "Compassion". What is the one on your new avatar picture?

Mine has been here for years too and the forest all around me is full of it. I dug one root with several branches about 2 metres long and nearly as thick as my wrist, from the long herbaceous border last year, meant I had to dig up and replant several perennials. Yet the whole bed had been dug up and replanted 10 years before.

He didn't seem afraid of me. Had pollen all over his back.

I've found that weed killers don't work very well on ivy, it's too waxy. But the ivy here is not very easy to pull up or dig up! I hate it.

Slug..... Or is it ?

I have seen shelled slugs several times here in SW France. Here they are considered welcome as they also eat snails and slugs!
