Great to have you back, Fairy. Lovely photos, as usual.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Posted: 02/07/2017 at 22:42

Edged the upper middle bed with the D tool. Weeded and unwound and pulled up lots of bindweed. Took ages. Bindweed seems to like the heavy rain we've had. Garden Open next Sunday. Will I ever be ready? The rain has battered it all.

Joyce, I'm thinking of you and your OH. I hope you manage to get some sleep. Such a worrying time for you. But, from what you say, it sounds as though OH isn't suffering. Hugs.

Went to look at an Open Garden this morning. Gave me hope, but not motivation. They had been away and it's poured since they got back so lawn was unmown and there were some weeds. But beautiful alstromerias. Nice couple, yummy cake. They said they had some teacups to give DD. They know her.

Been struggling with my garden this afternoon. I think bindweed likes rain! Middle bed finished, all edged. But the rain has blasted flowers off and made plants look a mess. Open Day in a week.

I hope Dove's OH isn't too bruised, sounds painful.

Morning all.
Going to visit a garden in the Open Gardens scheme, then come home to do some gardening. Hope the garden will motivate me!

I use Internet Explorer, it doesn't say that.

My garden is really bashed from the rain. Hope it recovers by Sunday 9th, my Open Day.

Hello all
I'm back from Daughter 2 and they've gone to friends' wedding today. I enjoyed seeing GD in her school play, more of a musical about emotions with singing and dancing. GD was anger, dressed in a red net skirt. She's 7.

July has come in like a damp squib, cool and grey.

I must go and collect my glasses in the village restaurant, left them there on Tuesday, been hunting. They've just rung.

Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Fidget has solved a mystery for me on the Kew Visit thread! So I had to tell you. In June there is a lovely scent around my kitchen terrace. I've been around sniffing the Jasmine, the roses and the honeysuckle but it's not them. Just realised it must be the lime tree! Too high up to sniff.

Absolutely tipping at Daughter 2's near Libourne.

Lovely flowers, GD, Papi-Jo, and B3.

Papi-Jo, I have a Laptop, but it doesn't enlarge the photos when I right click, it asks if I want to copy, save or print them.

Lovely photos, Fidget, thank you. I've never been to Kew, don't know when I'll get the chance.

I've had a lovely scent in my kitchen terrace recently, wasn't the honeysuckle, jasmine or the Gertrude Jekyll rose. Mystery every year. You have just solved it! I have a lime tree!  A lot of old French houses have them.
