HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 12/04/2015 at 19:54

Just finished re-doing the strawberry bed. Getting gloomy outside. Midges.

I like Old Speckled Hen too, but have to wait until we go to England. Should be going on Thursday, but there may be a strike

Lovely and sunny here today 21°.

Back from the choir lunch party. Really enjoyed it, nice people, lot of chatter and some songs and jokes told. Wonderful Bring and Share lunch, huge selection.

On the way back we stopped at 2 GCs on the west of Périgueux to leave some flyers for the Open Gardens. One had the Charlottte and Anais strawberries that I wanted and the other had the little leaf Lilac Syringa microphylla 'Superba' that I have been looking for for some time. That second nursery, a small privately run one, was very interested in the Open Gardens.

Thanks Chicky. They aren't all out yet, those are early ones.

Evening all. I've been out all day, an annual meeting with lunch then went to see son as his baby son has started crawling. More like a caterpillar really! Cute.

Out tomorrow too, going to OH's Choir's lunch party.

My agastache, Blue Boa and Black Adder were bought in pots last autumn. They looked fine. I re-potted them and put them in a cold frame for winter. Black Adder is growing, but nothing is happening in Blue Boa's pot.

My photos never turn up in the order I post them! And when I type something I never know where that will be either

Anyone done any gardening today?

Thank you everyone. No time for gardening today, an AGM then visit to son, tomorrow out to OH's choir's lunch party.

My son and DIL had a pond next to their previous house. They had to change to the spare bedroom until July because of the noise the frogs made!

 Nine more to go and that's one of the smaller ones.


 

Finished potting up the over 300 plug plants that arrived yesterday. Sowed lettuces, borage and dill. Then went and finished the end bed that I was weeding and edging in the flower garden. Planted Helianthus "Happy Days", Geum "Borisii, a day lily, Salvia "Hot Lips" and some blue and yellow pansies.

Before and after.

Is that Dordogne Damsel, or another DD?

Morning all. Another lovely day, but the sky has some clouds. Warmer this morning, was 5° in the night instead of 1°.

Thought I'd finished potting all my plug plants, then realised a box of Zinnia Profusion "Fire" was missing, just found it in the rubbish. Nearly threw it away with the boxes!

Yvie, my Blue Boa isn't up yet either.

Verdun, you must have more than 1 pair of pants and there is such a thing as hand washing! yuk!
