Nick, your garden is lovely, you've made a huge difference.


Mark, there is a thread for gardens we have visited. This is more for our own gardens. I'll try to find the link.

I've spent a lot of the afternoon packing up crockery and cutlery from yesterday's Tea. Have lost 2 teaspoons and gained 2 knives  No clotted cream in France, as Obs said, we used Mascarpone, which is triple cream. They say it's cream cheese but it doesn't taste at all cheesy.

Evening all. The Strawberry Tea went very well, for once it was warm and sunny. My plant stall went pretty well too, sold most of my excess annuals. DD was there.


DD, if you see this, someone has offered a set of green "Paragon" bone chine tea cups.

I hope you feel better soon, Amber.


Congratulations to your nephew, Lilly P.


Been a busy day today. Went shopping for the Strawberry Tea tomorrow. OH has washed all the garden chairs and tables and I've got out all the crockery and tablecloths and set up my plant stall. May not have time to post tomorrow morning. Helpers coming at 11am and I will be making scones for 50 before they arrive. I've roasted a chicken for lunch. My hip is hurting, hope it's OK tomorrow as I'll be on my feet most of the afternoon.

Didn't lose Internet and only had a very short, seconds only, power cut, but there was a very strong wind last night. Didn't rain as much as the forecast said.

Going shopping for the Strawberry Tea this morning, but first I must plant a big blue geranium, bought in England, and the 3 cleomes that I grew from seed.

Morning all.


I'm not surprised by the result. I don't think it has to do with Brexit, it's because of Social Security cuts etc. May comes over as arrogant but I think that is because she was trying to look strong. Don't forget that she was for remain and then ended up having to negotiate Brexit, a difficult position. But I would not have voted Tory anyway, although I felt a bit sorry for her. Can't see why anyone wants to be a Politician!

Cutting garden

How is your cutting garden getting on Obelixx? Mine is growing but not yet flowering. Sweet peas are very late, I didn't get on with it so the seeds were just pushed into the ground this spring.

The pharmacien here in the local village told me that in France everyone is asked to bring their unwanted used and unused medicaments to the pharmacy. They are then sorted and disposed of safely or sent to 3rd world countries if they are in date and unused.


I've finished the greengage tree bed, weeding, and planting salvia farinacea, isotoma and rudbeckia "Tiger Eye" where the daffodils were. Started weeding the lower trellis bed.
