HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Gosh you go to bed early RB. Or have you just snuck off to watch TV? Glad your son's leg is getting better. It sounded horrific.


I've spent most of the day in the garden, except when there was a downpour.


Going to lunch with son and small GSs tomorrow.

Had a marathon session of weeding, edging and planting today. Finished the upper trellis bed, the end bed, the woodland bed and the lower middle bed. Rain stopped play for a bit, but went out again, came in 30mins ago.

Sparkles you can have lovely bits for this thread and messy bits for the other one. All gardens have messy bits, I call my rubbish area where I throw stuff like creeping buttercup and bindweed, the Unpleasurance, found the name in a funny book about gardening.


Thank you, Joyce, Chicky and RB.


The peach rose is a climbing Shropshire Lad.

What to do with my front garden? Ideas welcome

Crab apples are pretty in the spring and you can make jelly from their attractive fruit in the autumn. An Amalanchier gives white blossom in the spring and Autumn colour.

Looking forward to the birth announcement! I wonder if you'll manage to get pics when they are big enough to look out?

Have just come across this thread, missed all these lovely photos. But I thought all the photos of our gardens and flowers were on this thread http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/garden-pictures-2016/898196-42.html#latest  Now there are two photo threads for our gardens so don't know where to post any more

What is your weather like?

How hot do people call hot in the UK? Shade temperatures I mean.


It is 25° here in Dordogne now. What I call a nice summer's day - at last, it's been so wet here. I've been gardening. How hot is too hot for your liking? Here, I don't like it over 30°.
