MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 29/06/2013 at 10:22

Morning all. I'm back from garden visiting, family seeing in England. Paris was a nightmare yesterday, French hols starting. Stuck in a traffic jam needing a wee, not fun!

Garden here is like a jungle. OH was shocked at the lawns, out mowing last night. How do weeds grow so big in 2 weeks? Delphiniums and tomatoes needed tying up, did it before I went but the delphs has grown about 2 more feet. Broad beans getting too big already, loads of mangetout peas, I'll have to throw some away, too big.

The sooner the support is put up the better. They may not need it at the moment but when they start growing it will be harder to put up the wires. They don't take long to do.

They are scented, but not strongly, rather light and fresh, not heavy and musky.

I think that is a good choice. I have two, they do a really good flowering followed by smaller flushes. I've had mine over 20 years.

This is one.

Yes, Pashley Manor seemed a bit bigger than I remembered. There was a new entrance and gift shop building and i think the paths around the lake were extended. Also 7 new loos!

Front garden very uninteresting

Maud, I just bought campanula Pink Octopus today, never heard of it before. It's still in bud so I haven't smelt it yet. Label said it's a flower arranger's delight but if it smells funny I wonder.

Went to Pashley Manor today, lovely garden very English. Will put photos on gardens we have visited thread.

Good Evening FORKERS

Birdy, your French is pretty good. I speak it better than I write it, but I have a very English accent French men say it is charming

Funny, I've had notifications by email for other threads, but not this one.
