Thank you Artjak, I'll give it a go.

There was a little bit of salad thing left so we will eat it soon. It was a lovely warm day, but getting chilly now.

What lovely colours. Your blues and yellows are beautiful, Chicky. Rudbeckias are much better than mine.

My Lady Emma Hamilton is in a pot on the terrace. I bought 3 pots in the GC sale. Must get another orangey rose to go with her. Anyone have Pat Austin? Or can recommend another? I have Rosa Complicata for the 3rd pot, but it's in a different place on the terrace.

Zoomer, did you wait long enough? Sometimes I have to wait quite a time for pics to upload. Seen Levens on TV. Wonder where Belieze is, must Google it.

Lovely photos, Fidget, thank you.

We are hoping to go to Suffolk next year so Cumbria will have to wait, but it's on the list!

After church we went to friends for a BBQ, there were 16 of us, lots of food, wine (but it was my turn to drive so went steady) and chatter. Enjoyed it. Came home and it was 7pm already (French time). Watered all the pots.

Morning all. Church, then BBQ at friends.

There was a thread here where people complained about Vanmeuwen.

Funny, when I hovered mouse over Lily it said she'd sent 13519 posts, but when I went to her posts it said 5000 and something.

Gosh, that was a big space! Probably a problem with the site.

We watched a recorded Midsomer Murders, so in a different room from laptop.

DD I think my rotovator is too big for weeding beds. I use it for the Veggie garden in the spring. I don't think it's a good idea for weeds as the stems get wound around it and it chops up roots so they increase and multiply. I weed by hand with fork and trowel in flower beds.

You must have been quite near me today, I'm 20 mins from Périgueux and 25 mins from Hautefort. Have you been to the cave near Tourtoirac? It's on the way to Hautefort from me.

I have 2 woodburners to save on oil bills, but it's a lot of work with logs. Oil here is considerably more expensive than in the UK.
