Hello Matty. Matty is an old friend, thanks to gardening forums, we've been to each others houses when on holiday.

I'm not very techie, but on the bottom right of my screen is a little magnifying glass with a % sign. I've enlarged print on the screen to 115% by clicking on it's arrow.

Have had an email from the gardens open to public man. He now has a co-ordinator for Dordogne and is hoping to visit with him in 2 weeks. The garden will look more awful by then

 The new "Open Gardens" scheme in France, for charity, seems to be gaining momentum.

Glad Pa is OK Dove.

Fidget, can't get i player in France.

Spent the morning shifting rotted manure from the pile by the summer paddock field shelter to the pile at the end of the flower garden. 2 garden trailer loads, but that is 10 - 12 wheelbarrow loads. Lots more to do, 3 - 4 years worth, crumbly and black. The farmer cleans out the shelter yearly with his tractor. Shoulders ache. Would have done twice that 10 years ago. During the winter it will be used for mulching the flower beds, probably full of weed seeds, as usual.

 Sternbergia Lutea and Dahlia "Pooh".

 

I put these on the gardens thread, but as they are stars at the moment here they are again.

On page 63 Dove had a lovely wigwam of thunbergia but when I clicked on my laptop it stayed sideways. Does it only turn round if you have a tablet?

Sorry, it's Hydrangea Seemanii which is evergreen.

I have Virginia Creeper and it's an absolute pest, now it's got into the veggie garden, don't know how - it's 50m from the house. Seems resistant to glyphosate.

Narrow Garden Issue

Crab apple is my normal choice for small gardens, but I thought it might be too wide for this one. My daughter has a small garden and they have an espalier apple tree on one wall. You could always hang bird feeders on that Prunus!

Morning all. Sun is shining, but not so warm. Good gardening day, but I feel knackered after the weekend events. Charity BBQ Saturday, Bring and share lunch here after Sunday church to finish up the BBQ food.
