It looks lovely, BM. Please don't forget to send a photo when it's grown up.

We had a proper bathroom, but the heater didn't work and the hot water ran out if someone else had a bath first. There were 6 children, 2 pairs of twins, I wasn't one. On my wedding day my Mum asked everyone not to have a bath in to morning until I'd had one, but my uncle didn't hear her so my bath was cold!

Obelixx, I get the fabric from the supermarkets in spring or (better quality) from garden centres or DIY places.

Runny, that description of summer sounds idyllic, but don't you ever have hot showers and fresh sheets in winter?

I've been raking the veg garden and trying to put down the permeable weed stopping fabric but there's a bit of a wind and it's a bit of a struggle. Come in for liquid refreshment. No, not alcohol, elderberry cordial.

I get electric shocks from SM trolleys and cars, too.

Pat, you've mentioned Regina several times, but I seem to have missed the post that said who she is. Who is she?

That's a lovely way of putting it, Hazel!

I'm in Dordogne, SW France. Weather in early 20s last few days. Have had to do some watering. The trees are greening up, grass is growing like made. Daffodils and Magnolia Leonard Messel are over. Tulips and English bluebells are in flower. Dahlias left in the ground are starting to shoot so I hope we don't get a frost. We can get frosts up to early May.

Sweet peas - plant out?

They are hardy, but as they are babies I would put them somewhere protected until the forecast is a bit kinder.

Just enjoyed looking at the lovely photos. Internet wouldn't let me yesterday. Don't think I've ever managed a pot of hyacinths without at least one flop!

Great looking planters. Gorgeous tulips.

I hope the membrane works for you. My French son in law hills the soil for his carrots and they do well. I hope you don't get a frost, the sweet corn looks almost ready to plant out.
