Neatness.....a swear word in the garden?

Posted: 29/05/2014 at 18:46

I looked up "playing in the dirt" and that was innocent enough so then I looked back to see what else Caral might have written that could be embarrassing. Then I read on and realised that the innocent word which has always meant nicking something or stealing had another meaning. Googled it  Jim's fault for knowing about such things!

I hope you didn't mind about the lack of lie in, have one tomorrow instead. Glad you like the flowers, look forward to the photo. Bee organised it.

Morning all. Nice day, so far. Going to help on a stall in a local village brocante fair, bit like a boot fair, bric a brac. For the C of E here, vicar is salaried by the C of E members in Aquitaine.

Try looking on this site to identify clematis. There are so many and your flower isn't really open yet.

First husband wanted to live in France so we moved here from Kent in 1985 with 4 small children. He died in '98, I stayed here as children were all at school and University here.

In Kent I had a big garden, opened it to the public for leukaemia research because my friend's daughter died, was on the point of opening it for the National Gardens Scheme, but we moved to France. Have a big garden here which I made from a farmyard and a bit of a field. Second OH buys me the subscription for GW to be sent here.

Weather at the moment is rubbish! Keeps raining. Garden not ready for the charity garden party I'm doing in June.

Garden tattoos? Or generally cool and interesting tattoos?

There are huge orange ones in France, bigger that yours, but I'm no way putting one on my hand  But it's the small grey ones that do all the damage.

Some of us have put photos of us here before, but we are aware that it's a public forum and some like to stay private.

I have a meadow. It has grasses on mass, and wild flowers and my and my daughter's horses eat them

Nothing stopping you having open invites to your forum friends now Verdun, you have a lovely garden
