No Lily Beetle

I haven't seen any here in SW France either. Usually they have eaten my Madonna Lilies by now.

container (?) roses

I bought 2 climbing roses 2 days ago. The nurseryman said to plant them out straight away, but compost fell away revealing little white roots. I gave them a big watering can of water each and they haven't drooped at all, so I hope they are OK. I water newly planted roses every week anyway.

Hate this format, but will carry on for the time being. Losing going to the last post I looked at and being able to edit and the loss of email notifications are my biggest upsets. I don't think the French advertisers have found this site and the English ones haven't found France yet, but I'm not getting ads so far Sshhh!


Think I over did it yesterday and didn't drink enough. Was still weeding in the evening after OH went to choir practice. It was warm and sunny and I've gone red at the back of my neck. Last night I felt awful and had lower abdominal pain. Dog woke me at 7am but I went back to sleep until after 9am. Feel a bit better now but hands and shoulders ache. Usually spring weeding is done over a period of time until June but I'm having to get it all OK at the same time by the 8th May. Wasn't my choice of date. I would like the roses in flower, they are buds, same for clematis. It's too soon.

I have posted some photos. The camera icon on right of toolbar is simpler than the oak tree. But something I really will miss is that before you could click on a photo to enlarge it. Now you can't. It was so useful when trying to identify plants for people to be able to enlarge a bit of the photo.

COMFREY

Are you sure it's comfrey? Mine doesn't behave in the way yours does. I've just had a tiny patch in the lawn next to the bed. It did fill the bed, which isn't that big about 1m x 2m, but hasn't gone any further.

What lovely colours you have Hefty.


Buttercup, your garden is beautiful, what fabulous views.


Here is a photo from this morning, I hope. I took a load with my new camera yesterday but they wouldn't download as the site said they were too big. I think I've found how to make my camera take them smaller.


I think it's worked! But now I'll have to delete the big ones and take a load more smaller ones.
