Hello Forkers - April edition

Will it be cold next week? It's full sun here, early 20s next week. But we have the car so I don't need to travel light and I have some clothes at the cottage. No pyjamas, long nightie! Gas heating in the cottage, much more efficient than here.

Done the long border, knackered and have a rash on my arm from the goosegrass. Kept thinking of my friend though.


Have just eaten Spag Bol sitting outside, come in as it's getting cool and gloomy. Rain is forecast for tomorrow. Garden needs it.

You can but try, plastic grow house probably the best option. They grow into big plants, I've only grown them in the ground. I've never grow runner beans in a pot either. How big are the pots?

Thank you!

Well done, Liz, it’s looking lovely. Thank you for the photos. Best wishes for a quick recovery.

Morning all.


Warm and sunny today, but cold and wet forecast for tomorrow. I hope there is a decent amount of rain.


I must weed the long border, said that before but there keep being other urgent things. Three days of rain from tomorrow then babysitting for son on Friday morning then off to Norfolk by the ferry on Saturday and Sunday, includes an overnight stop in Boulogne. Have to take the car this time, going to the Malvern Spring Show after Norfolk. Housesitter, hopefully, will look after my baby plants.

Such a pure white anemone and I love that clematis, Liri.


I love before and after pictures.


Are they scented AuntyRach? I have a couple of purple leaved Berbéris and the flowers smell lovely.

Thank you for the hugs, Mrs. Garden and Liri. My friend's husband needs them most, he's a lot older and they didn't think it would be that way round and he adores her.

Your garden is looking wonderful, Hosta.


We had a delicious St. George's day lunch in a local restaurant, 27 of us, lots of chat. Then I went to vote for the French President.


But when we got home there was a phone call from a friend to say a friend of ours who has cancer is probably dying. She's my age. They have a house here but went back to England when she was ill.

Morning all.


Another sunny day, but I'm starting to long for rain and I expect the farmers are too. We should have this weather in June.


Goiing to a Saint George's Day lunch. It was fun last year.
