Garden Gallery 2013

Here are some more of my garden as some of you kind people have actually asked for them and I have actually worked quite hard so that is very rewarding. I'm lucky to have a big garden but there is so much more availailable land in France. This is the main flower garden at the back of the house.

 Rose Paul's Scarlet

 The pink rose trellis

 The kitchen terrace where I hold my charity events, when it's not raining, and where we eat in summer.

It was lovely to see some of the old photos again, but I got a bit confused as I forgot it was two different threads.

I will post some more photos of my garden on the 2013 one, as I've been asked - which is most gratifying as I thought everyone would be getting fed up with it by now. But it is lovely to get nice comments when you've worked hard on it.

I was a bit confused, it's not the same, this is the old Garden Gallery and there is a new one, Garden Gallery 2013. So Rampant Climber resurrected the old one instead of putting the photo on the 2013 one. Now I realise what Matty and Dove meant.

Am I meant to get my coat and join Verdun now?

It's all the same thread, but all our earlier photos seem to have disappeared. Perhaps it will be OK tomorrow. When things go wrong at weekends I don't think anyone is on computer duty to fix it at GW.

I have a deep pink valerian that has seeded in my stone terrace, but I love it! Just as well there are plants for every taste

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.
