Flowers, I think you are the only person who likes it!

Morning all. Looks a lovely day. Went up to 24° in the shade yesterday. But it's getting windy. Must put up the pea netting and the broad bean supports.


Fairygirl, I expect your photos won't work because they are too big. The first time I tried I had a message to say they were too big. The message doesn't appear any more, but it worked when I changed my camera settings to medium instead of large. But I'm not a super photographer like you, I'm a happy snapper!

But you can't enlarge the photos when you click on them so it will be harder to help people with identifying plants.

I started writing a post late afternoon, son telephoned, then I went out to feed the horses, water everything, check the GH, prepare the meal, watch TV and chat to OH. Now I'm back in front of laptop and there is my unsent post. So, here it is.


I'm hanging on too.


Have been very busy with my garden, but have a look at the forum when I come in for a drink. It's been really warm and hot in the sun. I felt unwell yesterday, probably didn't drink enough.


Thinking of Dove and Lyn, have been through it too, but everyone and every parent is different and special.

I haven't seen any here in SW France either. Usually they have eaten my Madonna Lilies by now.

container (?) roses

I bought 2 climbing roses 2 days ago. The nurseryman said to plant them out straight away, but compost fell away revealing little white roots. I gave them a big watering can of water each and they haven't drooped at all, so I hope they are OK. I water newly planted roses every week anyway.

Hate this format, but will carry on for the time being. Losing going to the last post I looked at and being able to edit and the loss of email notifications are my biggest upsets. I don't think the French advertisers have found this site and the English ones haven't found France yet, but I'm not getting ads so far Sshhh!


Think I over did it yesterday and didn't drink enough. Was still weeding in the evening after OH went to choir practice. It was warm and sunny and I've gone red at the back of my neck. Last night I felt awful and had lower abdominal pain. Dog woke me at 7am but I went back to sleep until after 9am. Feel a bit better now but hands and shoulders ache. Usually spring weeding is done over a period of time until June but I'm having to get it all OK at the same time by the 8th May. Wasn't my choice of date. I would like the roses in flower, they are buds, same for clematis. It's too soon.
