It was 10° this afternoon although cloudy, cleared up loads of prunings and dead undergrowth (except it was overgrowth of perennials left on for protection), still got the wisteria to do.

I made my 4 childrens wedding cakes. In France they have something called a "pièce montée" of choux pastry balls stuffed with patisserie cream and drizzled with caramel. My children wanted traditional English with rich fruit cake marzipan and royal icing in tiers as well. I only have one photo on this computer of the most recent wedding. It's the simplest cake to my DIL's design without pillers holding the cakes up. Bother, it won't download. I'll see what happens with photobucket.

experiences with free offers of plants

I've never been eligible for the GW plant offers because of living in France, but I've always wondered what they were like. So I've read these replies with interest and relief.

There is still plenty of time. I don't usually plant potatoes before April. You don't want their green leafy tops, when they appear, to get frosted.

Pam, you haven't pressed something, there have been lots of posts all over the forum about tiny text. There is a technical fault. Blackest told us how to get bigger text, I think it was press Ctrl + to make it bigger Ctrl - to make it smaller and Ctrl 0 to go back to how it started.

Lyn, could they be Rip van Winkle? It's a double dwarf variety.

Back from visiting my daughter & 3 small grandsons near Poitiers. Thurs, Fri and Sat lovely, mild and springlike. Today grey, misty and a lot cooler. Still haven't finished clearing up beds after winter, want to make a new one with all I bought in Spring plant sales when I had a flash of March hare madness! Need somewhere to put them.

Morning all. Best day of the week weatherwise looks like Tuesday and, bother, out to lunch followed by committee meeting. When  am I going to make new bed for the plants I bought in Spring (?) sales? Spring on hold again today, though it did start last week, it's grey and gloomy.

Sue H, I still have tiny text, you're lucky!
