Morning all. Looks like rain is coming. Took some more photos of the garden for the morning after the day before, Cecile Brunner in full flower other roses starting to come out, not at the peak yet, normally they peak end of May.

No good at camellias, had one in a pot that died, but probably because it was so cold the terracotta pot split in two!

Berghill, you have a wonderful garden. It didn't get like that all by itself, it had a wonderful gardener.

Birdy, you put it all so well in your summing up.

Mrs. Garden, cannas aren't hardy. You have to put them in a frost free place in winter. Good thing your lovely son is hardy!

We collect plants on holiday too, when we come over by ferry. We have some lovely ones from Cornwall, but it was hard choosing there because we have dry limestone and clay pockets.

Thank you GG. Sounds as though you had a really lovely day, just the sort of thing I like doing. Jealous!

Thank you to all who wished me well for my charity garden party.

Well, it did rain, but not too hard and only on and off. 49 English people turned up, no French, and they were all very nice about my garden. Sold lots of plants, raffle did well and everyone enjoyed their tea - sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, cake and strawberries and cream. They were all offered a glass of fizzy wine on arrival (a lovely friend gave me 6 bottles). Made 680€. Am knackered! OH and I have just  been finishing off the last bottle of fizzy wine. I had some great helpers.

John H, I think that clematis is Dr. Ruppel. It's deeper pink with fatter petals than Lincoln Star.

Lovely photos everyone, for me Marion's irises and Simon's Anemone de Caen are special.

This is one of my favourite roses coming into flower, climbing "the Pilgrim".
