I liked GW better when Alan T did it. I like him. Of course Geoff Hamilton was the best though.

Enjoyed Big Dreams Small Spaces tonight. The 2 couples worked very hard to make 2 lovely gardens.

Where I am, in Dordogne, France, we often have temperatures of 34° in summer. We tend to have stone houses with wooden shutters instead of air con. But now, in Feb. it's cold.

Hello all.

Laptop is working for everything except this forum, very slow. I think there are too many ads on the forum and they upset laptop. Our signal isn't good at the best of times. I wish the forum was still in the old format, worked so much better.

Well done Possum. Tears of joy

We are going to the Malvern Spring Show in May, after going to our cottage in Norfolk, so booked 2 different ferries, Dunkirk on way there, overnight ferry from Portsmouth on way back. Staying with friends I met via this forum. I'm a member of the RHS so got price reduced tickets.

Then in July we are going to Norfolk but stopping at son's on the way near Auxerre. My latest grandchild to be christened so all the family are going. Will drive from them to ferry at Dunkirk. On the way back we hope to go to Monet's garden that I have never seen. Need to find a B&B or small hotel near Giverny.

Morning all.

Been doing paperwork. Ferry tickets and things. Laptop was working fine until I decided to look at this site then it went on strike. Makes me nervous to come on here.

Was -5° white frost this morning.

Interesting to read Hazel's post above, I've hardly been able to access the forum today, thought my lap top was cracking up. I haven't read back yet, took ages to get to the Hello Forkers thread and the previous page there.

Laptop seems to be working now, just managed to read previous page, 11.20pm.

I bought a winter honeysuckle for the scent, but I can hardly smell it. There was something gorgeous in the GC today that smelt sweet and a bit honeyish, but I couldn't trace what it was.

I've had problems again with Internet, yet OH's laptop is working fine and so is his iPad. It's as though  my laptop loses the WiFi signal and gets stuck. Haven't read back as every time I click on the previous page  it gets stuck and nothing happens. So frustrating. Think my laptop might be dying. Yet it seems to work late in the evening.

Lovely photos. Our first house in France was a watermill (damp!). The mill stream ran under the house and a couple of dippers nested there. It was great watching them diving.

At first I thought Obelixx was inviting Bishops for tea and they were going to eat After Eights

Well done, Clari, and it's good that you were thanked.
