I liked the Woodentops. I got into gardening early - I liked "Bill and Ben the Flowerpot Men", litle weed was my favourite. She isn't now, I keep digging up her relatives!

Morning all. Sweet peas don't work very well here, too hot in summer and I don't get time to deadhead! But I won a prize at the village show for them when we lived in England.

Busy day today, going shopping in a minute. Making tea for 30 tomorrow. Making cakes this afternoon.

I agree. This shows the leaves of viburnum tinus.

A mother found her small child eating a slug. "Oh no" she said, trying to wipe the infant's mouth. Then she couldn't resist asking "what did it taste like?" "Worms" said the child.

Bee spotting

I saw quite a few bees in my garden a couple of days ago, bumblebees and a few honey bees, but I live in SW France. The plum and cherry trees are covered in flower buds and the peach tree is flowering so I hope there will be enough bees. Last year we had a huge frost followed by about 3 weeks of rain and there was hardly any fruit.

When we lived in England our house was listed (in Kent). We were allowed a conservatory on condition it was in oak and brick with leaded light windows. But that was 1982.

I have a metal shed that I use for horse food and grooming kit. It got very hot in summer so I stuck some aluminium foil type insulating stuff on the ceiling and it's much better.

Help! What colour should I paint my fence?

There is a problem with this site at the moment. They keep promising to sort it but they haven't managed yet. You may find you get a squashed tomato when you try to look at other information like "my posts"!
