MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 15/06/2013 at 09:45

Morning all.

Off to England today, Staying with son mid-France tonight. Will see my beautiful little granddaughter.

I hope no-one with small children was upset by this badly behaved parent discussion. It was directed at a small minority. Most children are lovely and most of us have children and grandchildren. I had 4 children and I have 6 grandchildren, with hope of more to come. I used reins in town as I felt their safety was the most important thing, but only until they learnt that roads were dangerous.

That looks very pretty. Just need to keep it weeded. Some gardeners cover alpine gardens with fine gravel which keeps weeds down, moisture in and keeps the necks of the plants dry so they don't rot in wet weather.

Thank you Nicky, I love seeing people's gardens. Obvious from yours that you are a young mum! Although I looked at you profile. From your posts you haven't been there long so good luck with it. It looks a good size. I hope you managed to get everything identified.

Beautiful rose Ben, wish I could smell it. Love the blue of the aquilegia.

best foliage perennial plant for the garden

I like epimediums especially in the Spring when the new foliage grows. They are so handy for difficult shady places.

Not that keen on coleus, it has a sort of a fake look. I will mention hostas! Love them.

I also love my sambucus "Black Lace".

What's your Flower of the moment?

Rodgy-dodge, several times I've bought plants that aren't the colour it says on the label. I suspect tht customers take out the labels to read them and put them back in the wrong pot. Though nowadays the labels are more attached than they used to be. Here is another rose that I love, the Pilgrim, may have shown it before, can't remember.

Morning all, Dordogne forecast is the same as KEF's. Yesterday was hot. Going to finish off some planting before rain and before we go to England. Hosting a friend's birthday dinner party tonight and have a stack of ironing to do.

Today I feel so happy....

That's really pretty Bev. The picture wasn't there when I looked before.

Moved house last year. Need help ID'ing some plants please

Does No 9 have the trunk or is that the one above? If it has a trunk it's willow, not solidago. Solidago is tall perennial with yellow flowers.
