It's hasn't put it how I put it with the titles on top and the rose on top. Weird!

Here is my "The Pilgrim", looks paler and more two tone than David's.

Hello PoddingtonP

Wow, Toblerone cheesecake, never had it, sounds yummy.

Lily, I haven't seen a sky like that for ages and ages. Raining here in sunny Dordogne, has been for weeks.

Quiet day, did ironing, planned which bedding plants, watched Place in the Sun, Home or Away (while ironing) and Escape to the Country, dyed hair (honey, chestnut, translated from French!). Deleted about 200 emails in inbox.

If it had a shed there are there concrete foundations underneath stopping the water draining away? It may be that the ground is just too wet because of all the rain this winter and will be better later. Have you dug in any compost? Compost and manure are better than sand for improving clay.

Morning all. Too wet to garden. Spring doesn't look round the corner here, can't see round the corner, too grey.

House not too bad as tidied before weekend because of guests. Shall have a quiet day planning the garden and looking at plug plant catalogue. May dye hair.

Rose questions now I've sorted the begonias :)

I like "Graham Thomas" from David Austin which is yellow and scented and "The Pilgrim", which is a paler yellow with a cream edge and delicately scented.

I love all their English roses which flower more than once and are scented, especially pink and crimson.
