Gardeningfantic, I love your garden. Birdy's peonies are such a fabulous colour, think I've said both those comments before, but it's still true!
As for Deano's veg garden it's so tidy and beautiful. Mine's a mess. Here's mine, more advanced, but it is France - even though this spring has been fairly awful.
I use permeable fabric to keep the weeds down, can't cope with the veg and the flowers otherwise and weeds here are very vigorous! Did you know it takes 5 weeks for groundsel to get from seed to full-flowering maturity? And groundsel isn't a particularly difficult weed.
