I would just dig a plant or two to eat as new ones now  Obviously I'm more impatient than you!

Looks great Baz. Have you started digging the potatoes? My red onions always throw up some flower stems.

What a lovely place, Fairygirl. How maddening that you lost your camera.

Here are pics of DD's garden that I visited today on her Open Day.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello all. Where has today gone? Haven't had time to come here since this morning. Well, nearly 3 hours of it was spent in DD's beautiful garden. She has worked really hard and the result is gorgeous. Such a change from last year when I first saw it. Her soil is acid and really fertile. She has blue hydrangeas and camellias and rhododendrons. Totally unlike my bit of Dordogne where the soil is shallow and limestone. The leaves on her roses are huge and she has enormous beautiful, brightly coloured lilies. we both (OH) had 2 cakes each, I had pineapple juice (hot day) and OH had 2 mugs of tea. Well, we'd skipped lunch.

I'm posting photos on the Garden Pictures thread.

Flumpy, if you click on Pat's name you will get her profile. She lives in New South Wales.

Good morning Marion.

A ladybird landed on me on Thursday when I was sitting in a friend's garden in the village.

I think France is about 3 weeks ahead of England. My roses are finished now and we have been eating runner beans for the last week. I have a glut of courgettes, 3 plants and the raspberries have been amazing.  They are on their way out now.

Just come back from a party. One of the members of OH's choir is going back to England.

Verdun, I like your cheerful gaillardia. Contrasts well with the phormium. Nothing the matter with a bit of colour - look at Great Dixter!
