Oh well done punkdoc! That's good news.

Want to go outside but it's freezing!

Don't forget to put drainage holes in the bottom. I fill my posts with earth and compost to about 3/4 then just compost in the top 1/4. I only ever change the top bit when I replant.

As milk churns are tall it would be nice to have something that falls down over the sides too. Depends on whether you want annuals or perennials and what your personal taste is. Also where you are placing the pot, sun or shade.

HELP! Something is growing on the terracotta Pot!

I can confirm what pansyface says. Big old terracotta pots in gardens often have that white deposit on them. A lot of people like them like that, gives them an antique character look.

Morning all.

Punkdoc, I lost my wedding ring on a gravel path when gardening. I'd lost weight at the time. My daughter found it 2 years later!

Frosty, -3°, sun shining through the mist. Maybe I'll get out in the garden this afternoon.

Tomorrow I'm going to Bergerac for a meeting, then in the evening OH's choir is having a Christmas sing-a-long with fish and chips. Tomorrow we are going to lunch with friends after church. Won't have much time to come on here.

I like deciduous too, but it won't hide the horrible wall in winter.

Thank you for all your kind comments. I suppose, that having lived here so long, I was sort of defending the French! But when I visit gardens in England I'm always amazed by their beauty. That is a bit of my garden, it won't fit in the photo, it is quite hard work though.

There are some blue irises, 2 sorts, and a clematis MultiBlue.

I would go for evergreen, Choisya, Eleagnus Gilt Edge or Euonymus.
