HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 01/12/2014 at 19:31

Friend's new puppy was tiny and adorable, so cute. 10 weeks. Crossed with a mini Australian collie. Want one, but OH said no. Have a Border Collie already. I'm sure he'd like the company.

Much colder here today, only 2° this morning. Got warm mucking out the horses' field shelter.

Morning all.

Like Clari, I must be the hibernating sort. I sleep longer and better in the winter, I prefer snuggling under the winter duvet, can't sleep under the light summer sheet. Don't like summer nights when it stays over 20° outside.

A friend is coming this morning to pick up things I bought her in England and to show me her new puppy.

Must mend the electric fence in the winter paddock where the strimming man cut it and need to bang in some fence posts. The horses have nearly finished their hay in the summer field shelter.

Garlic

Too much garlic gives me a runny tummy and I cannot stand the smell of people who have eaten it raw.

Pansyface sounds like a real chef, that's how they do it.

Thanks Lily. Welcome back Liri.

Had sausage and mash and onion gravy and apple pie (not all at once), now feel full and sleepy.

Christmas lights in the garden

 With and without flash. Won't do the Christmas tree for a couple of weeks though.

 

My OH bought a blossom tree yesterday (not a real one!) that lights up to put outside, LED lights, only 10W. He's put it on a timer for the evenings. Looks really pretty.

Oh what a shame GG. I get fed up when my cat digs up the pansies in pots.

Another bed finished until spring.

My cold is nearly better

 

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Posted: 29/11/2014 at 23:12

Just found this thread. It was started when we were about to leave England to come home to France, after visiting friends and family.

Still have more tulips to plant, but it's taking time because where they are going needs sorting. Still no frost and annuals are still flowering in tulip places. But I'm gradually getting round to chopping down, weeding, digging up and then planting tulips, violas and forget-me-nots.

Have 3 climbing roses still to plant, Crown Princess Margareta, Teasing Georgia and Compassion.

OH has cleared loads of leaves.

The veggie garden is a mess and will need clearing during the winter. Still have spinach beet, leeks, curly kale and purple sprouting.

I love ballet, not much opportunity here, but Swan Lake will be coming to Périgueux in March.

I enjoyed the craft fair I went to as well, got some stocking presents and bought a load of English sausages and back bacon. Met several people I knew there.
