I planted a big pot last year with Rudbeckia Tiger Eye Gold and and a purple Scaevola Saphira last summer. It was a mass of flower, but we didn't have the rain that England had. I had 2 pots with Euphorbia Diamond Frost with Surfinias. The Euphorbia didn't need deadheading, mass of foamy white. I like diascia trailing down pots. But I do plant petunias as they grow so well here (Dordogne), but I'm not very good at dead heading - big garden too much to do. I have 2 pots in semi-shade which I normally plant with Begonia Dragon Wing and blue Lobelias but last year I used Begonia Summerwings instead and it hardly grew and the stalks fell off. Perhaps something ate it. I get plug plants from a French company called Jardin Express.

I always think they look dreadfully uncomfortable and not very pretty.

So sorry about your auntie Pam.

Chocolate cake will have to wait, OH doesn't feel like it. He ate too much cake at the choir AGM. I sometimes wonder about choir, nearly all women.

Gary, I think I'll watch the no dig video at bedtime instead of doing Sudoku. I really enjoyed Geoff's book. Never read a book so fast in my life!

Love the chorus of the Hebrew slaves Glyn. It's so beautiful I think I'll have to listen to it while I make a big gooey chocolate cream cake

I always vote because of the effort of the Suffragettes. My grandmother got a degree at Cambridge, but she wasn't allowed it because she was a woman.

I like Sudoko at bedtime, it helps me drop off!

Weather forecast is good here too for next week. Hope I'll be able to get the broad beans in and some pruning done.
