Fork Handles

Doesn't anyone else watch Countryfile, Call the Midwife and Mr. Selfridge? I've missed out on all the excitement over Bunny's name and our accents.  People tell me I speak posh or like the Queen, brought up in Surrey, went to a convent school. Can't help it, not musical, can't sing, can't do accents so I'm stuck like that.

Can anyone tell me what this smiley means and why it has odd eyes?

Happy Mothers Day

Thank you Brumbull for the lovely flowers. Only ones I'll have today as my 4 children (all grown up now) and I live in France and Mother's Day is last Sunday in May!

Still feel full from lunch. No idea what's for supper. Hope day weatherwise is OK tomorrow, nothing on and still lots of pruning to do.

LeadFarmer your garden is so much prettier, softer and more colourful since you took it over. What's that gorgeous big flowered pink clematis?

Lin those double hellebores are lovely.

Here's my garden last year as LF likes to see more of the garden. Though perhaps this gallery is for this year, but never mind.

Weird, clothes shopping on Sunday. In France shops are shut on Sundays, except the odd small supermarket in the morning. GCs are open (some) but shut for lunch.

12 for lunch today, all gone now, dishwasher on. Now feel knackered, it would have been a good gardening day, 14° sun and cloud.

What's the weather like in your area?

Turned out quite nice, 14°.

advice for newbie

Clematis is hardy so it should be fine.

Growing Garlic

Posted: 10/03/2013 at 15:34

jon cob, I have friends who grow garlic very successfully but they don't do this forum, so I gave their advice as I don't grow it as I'm not that keen on it.

That was one of the nice things about Geoff Hamilton, he showed how to make things on a low budget for the ordinary gardener.
