I think that is just the name she has chosen for posting here. Losing a brother is sad and serious.

MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 09/08/2013 at 08:53

Morning all. Shopping this morning. Will drop in to the GC as they have sent me a voucher for the princely sum of 7€. Need some rose fertiliser anyway. Won't be tempted to buy plants as last time I went the plants were looking very tatty and unloved.

Good Evening FORKERS

As you are talking of Etoile Violette, a friend gave me a cutting of a clematis that she didn't know the name of. It's grown up now and I think it is Etoile Violette. What do you think?

Nasty Painful Bites !!

My son was bitten on his heel years ago, 2 puncture marks about 5mm apart. It was a viper and he was very ill.

Evening all. Weeded in Veg garden today. OH has just gone to England until Tuesday. Just had a Snickers ice cream. But had home grown Gazpacho soup first for the healthy option.

So long as it doesn't dry out when you are away. Look on the packets of seed in the Garden Centre for advice. I can't recommend as I live in France.

 They are all a bit battered by last night's heavy rain and the weekend storms. We had some huge hail which have made holes in the tomatoes.

 The one above is a big one, Goldquelle.

On the page before the Bearded One mentioned African Blue Basil. Here is my African Basil that Lily Louise gave me when we visited her garden (NGS) when we were in England.
