Hello Forkers - April edition

Posted: 24/04/2017 at 08:59

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.

Never got around to the long border today.
Found out how to reset the trip meter on my new car though, having searched through 250 pages of handbook and Googled it with no luck.

Cleared out and cleaned the 3 brick cold frames by the GH. Sounds posh but they were made by me. started filling them with plants to harden off from the GH. It took longer than I thought it would. Sowed mange-tout peas.

Very warm in the sun, 21° in the shade.

Going to a Saint Georges day lunch tomorrow in a local French restaurant with a load of Brits. Actually, I hate the word Brit, wonder why I used it?

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Today I weeded and cleaned the 3 brick cold frames by the GH. Then I put plants from the GH into the frames to harden off. It all took longer than I thought it would. It was 21° in the shade today and hot in the sun. Then I weeded the area and climbing frame that I had prepared some time ago for peas and sowed mange tout peas - 2 months later than last year! So the old label said, but maybe I'd sown them in pots in the GH.

Still haven't got around to weeding the rest of the long border.
