Forum much quicker now.

Don't think Leclerc supermarket is going to do an autumn promotion. They were filling the shelves with masses of toys for C........  GC had cleared a huge space and were filling it with artificial trees and decorations. When we first came to France in 1985 we couldn't buy a real C. tree before mid December.

Dahlia "Pooh" has taken a long time to get going. Planted it spring 2012, only did about 2 flowers, but it survived the winter in the ground and this is it now.

 Delphiniums are doing a final, if a bit feeble, burst before winter, their 3rd flowering.

 Doctor Ruppel, the clematis I'd searched for after seeing LeadFarmer's one, had produced a last flower, it had already flowered. Bought it in Newhaven the day I met Bev, potty gardener, in the GC. So it will remind me of Bev.

Morning all, took me ages to get here. Site very slow and page kept coming up blank. Or is it my laptop?

Supermarket today. Need more potting compost, wish they'd hurry up and have their autumn promotion.

My old handbags are still in a cupboard. My clothes from when I was thinner are in the spare room wardrobe, you never know, might fit one day!

Can't keep nail varnish for more than a couple of days, always chip it.

My MIL was lovely, taught me to garden.

OH bought a new computer. Couldn't manage without it.

A mummy hare had 4 babies in my big herbaceous border a few years ago! And the deer ate all my roses. Is that what you mean, Jim? Oh, and a badger died in the lean-to, but from the look of it I think it was old age.

Do tomatoes with blight taste OK? I would have thought frying them would kill the fungus.

Today I feel so happy....

That farm sounds idyllic, but I bet a lot of hard work goes into it. I'm glad you're still with us Pentillie, someone asked about you recently and I remembered you as the one who started this lovely thread.

Well done for the weight loss pg. That sounds strange, I think of you as Bev.

It was a lovely day today, planted up 5 troughs and a pot this afternoon.

Disaster, last night OH spilt glass of wine in his lap top. After lots of mopping up computer came on, so he did a back up. Big relief. This morning it's not working.

Morning all.

Lily, whenever there is a problem that page always comes up with oops and a squashed tomato.
