I love looking at photos of people's gardens. SweetPea has some lovely cheerful pots. Hope Tracey finds the charger, want to see how her new beds are getting on. Looking forward to Dove's pond when it's planted. Berghill has a wonderful garden, looks bigger than mine.

Thank you for liking my garden Sweet Pea. I usually like it, but not today. I was digging rampant periwinkle out that was taking over the bed and it was growing under an Albertine rose which is very very prickly. When Albertine is out it is a pretty peachy pink and smells wonderful but it isn't very friendly!

Begonias keep warm in the GH.

Busy day. Rode horsey this morning, gardened this afternoon. Swept out garage, had been keeping hay in it, now the cars can go back. In between things like putting out the washing, making lunch etc.

They are lovely, Matt.

Once, years ago, when I lived in Kent, I sowed a packet of Senetti in the GH. They all came up and grew into decent plants! GH was full of them. Stunning. Good thing I had 2 GHs then as there was no room for anything else. I put some around the house and gave some away, but they liked the GH best. I've bought them since for house plants but usually manage to kill them. No good at house plants.

It certainly doesn't look as though you've no idea about gardening! It's looking great.

I think so too. I would dig it up. In your last post you asked about poisonous berries. This will have poisonous, but bright and pretty, berries. My children ate some when they were aged 2 and 4 and I had to rush them to hospital with burning throats.

Work in progress in veggie garden. But not very interesting unless you are fascinated by earth!

I grow Nasturtiums in the veggie garden next to the broad beans. They are meant to entice the blackfly off the broad beans! Last year I didn't have blackfly on either I decorate salads with the edible peppery flowers. Very easy to grow and the seeds are big enough to manage easily. Here in France they are called Capucine. The Latin name is Tropaeolum.
