Thanks Lily. Welcome back Liri.

Had sausage and mash and onion gravy and apple pie (not all at once), now feel full and sleepy.

 With and without flash. Won't do the Christmas tree for a couple of weeks though.

 

My OH bought a blossom tree yesterday (not a real one!) that lights up to put outside, LED lights, only 10W. He's put it on a timer for the evenings. Looks really pretty.

Oh what a shame GG. I get fed up when my cat digs up the pansies in pots.

Another bed finished until spring.

My cold is nearly better

 

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Just found this thread. It was started when we were about to leave England to come home to France, after visiting friends and family.

Still have more tulips to plant, but it's taking time because where they are going needs sorting. Still no frost and annuals are still flowering in tulip places. But I'm gradually getting round to chopping down, weeding, digging up and then planting tulips, violas and forget-me-nots.

Have 3 climbing roses still to plant, Crown Princess Margareta, Teasing Georgia and Compassion.

OH has cleared loads of leaves.

The veggie garden is a mess and will need clearing during the winter. Still have spinach beet, leeks, curly kale and purple sprouting.

I love ballet, not much opportunity here, but Swan Lake will be coming to Périgueux in March.

I enjoyed the craft fair I went to as well, got some stocking presents and bought a load of English sausages and back bacon. Met several people I knew there.

Thank you for that info, Punkdoc, interesting. I trained as a nurse long ago and we were told that if you eat a varied diet, including fresh fruit and veg, there is no need to take vitamins. Extra vitamins don't make any difference.

Morning all.

Going to a craft fair (English) near Brantome this morning. Hope to find some stocking pressies for my grown up children who don't want to give up stockings. Each adult buys a little pressie for each other adult and big red skiing socks are put in front of the woodburner with the grandchildren's socks. Usually I collect little things on my travels, but I didn't this year. It's my turn to have the family this year, 10 adults, 6 children, 2 babies.

I was a poorly peeps, but I'm nearly better

Please comment, Punkdoc, you probably know a lot more than us.

Been asleep in front of telly. Going to bed. Night all.

What are your favourite native flowers?

I love English bluebells and their scent. Also cowslips, on the thin limestone soil here there are loads in the spring. We have lots of wild orchids too.
