Crab apples are pretty in the spring and you can make jelly from their attractive fruit in the autumn. An Amalanchier gives white blossom in the spring and Autumn colour.

Looking forward to the birth announcement! I wonder if you'll manage to get pics when they are big enough to look out?

Have just come across this thread, missed all these lovely photos. But I thought all the photos of our gardens and flowers were on this thread http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/garden-pictures-2016/898196-42.html#latest  Now there are two photo threads for our gardens so don't know where to post any more

What is your weather like?

How hot do people call hot in the UK? Shade temperatures I mean.


It is 25° here in Dordogne now. What I call a nice summer's day - at last, it's been so wet here. I've been gardening. How hot is too hot for your liking? Here, I don't like it over 30°.

Morning all.


My daughter (first of 4, 2 of each) is 40 and I'm still 27.


My garden is starting to recover after all that rain. Just took a few photos. It rained a little in the night but not heavily. A gardening day today, if the rain keeps off.

Hello Tootles. I took the beans out of the pods and simmered them for 5 minutes, drained them, added knob of butter. They were about 1/2" long, you can eat them bigger, but I like them young and tender.

Lilysilly, Lou said it has a nice honey scent.


Have planted up all my pots now. Just need to plant annuals in the tulip gaps in the beds then any left over plants will go to the plant sale at my Strawberry Tea.


Ate our first broad beans tonight.
