 Pam, I sent you a message, but I don't think they are sending the email to warn people. It's more detail of our visit to England.

Oh bother, I've missed a whole evening of lovely hairy female chat. Was watching all the recorded stuff on Telly such as GW, Escape to the Country, while OH was out singing in a concert.

Verdun must feel the cold, he's always getting his coat

I use tweezers for whiskers and a razor for the rest. It's funny how when you get older hair grows in different places than it did before. Not much left under the arms - not that I'm complaining about that bit!

Pam, your garden is so lovely I never imagined you could have been so ill. How on earth did you manage?

Thank you. I always leave my brollies in shops! Don't really mind wet and mild. Hate very cold.

Planting roses

When I was young the advice was to leave the graft union uncovered but now thinking has changed and the advice is to cover it and the crown to stop the rose rocking in the wind.

White Crocus

They are all beautiful. I must have planted well over 500 here over the years, but there are very few left. Do crocuses dislike hot dry summers? (Dordogne)

Buddleias are pretty tough, I've pruned mine.

This is fast turning into a mother's and younger women's (27 yr old) private club! Why have the men stopped posting??

Chilly today and windy and grey, but got some digging and manuring done. OH has gone to sing in his 2nd concert so I shall watch the recorded GW.

Going to England on Tuesday.  Hope weather is still good. What shall I pack?

Marion, here is one of my brunnera's coming out. This one sowed itself by the wall.

 And here is my magnolia "Leonard Messel".
