Having problems getting on the site again and haven't been able to read back either, amazed that at last I can type something, wonder if it will post.

Just looked at the News, when will it stop? So awful for those affected.

Soon we will be going out to look at 2 friends gardens having their Open Day. Each is 30 mins from here, but they are in opposite directions. I wonder if the one in Saint Germain des Prés is the one you are going to, DD?

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Happy birthday to GD's OH. Is he retiring now, then?


No gardening today, raining. Yesterday did support for the broad beans, tied up tomatoes, staked some perennials, tied up a clematis and did a barrow load of weeding. Oh, and Chelsea chopped the very tall double rudbeckias.

Hardy perennials........young plants

A larger plant should be more slug resistant too. Annuals and biannuals only have a year or two to maturity so can be planted fairly small as they grow very quickly.

Hello all.


It is raining!  Hurray, at last. But the storm and the rain on the skylight woke me up in the night. I have lots of HW and i.....g to do so must get on with it.


Have you moved into the house that will be the B&B yet, DD? When you are ready we'll come and take tea. I wish I could help, but have so much on and we are just too far away for ease. My Strawberry Tea is on the 9th June.

Morning all.
Rain at last. Thunderstorm in the night. Wet and grey now, 15°. Relief now it's not over 30°. But the bedroom felt hot and rain on the skylight woke me up, so not the best sleep.


I have all sorts of unmentionable things to do in the house that concern dusters and clothes.

Just been looking back at the gorgeous photos here.


Here are some photos of my garden, but they were taken yesterday evening when the light was going and the clouds were gathering for the storm in the night. But thank goodness for the rain. I couldn't believe it was coming so did some watering, which is why the campanula has fallen over. Some weeding needs to be done, but I've been with son on Granny duties as they've had a new baby.

Not just you RB, I don't like being messed about with either, except for my hair being washed.


Computer being slow, taken ages to get here, it's usually OK in the evenings.
Nighties all.

Scented climber NE facing

North East is quite hard, but David Austin has these roses. http://www.davidaustinroses.co.uk/specific-situations/climbers-for-north-facing-walls  But some are better than others. I would recommend The Generous Gardener, my daughter had it in her last house. The Pilgrim's scent is very mild. Teasing Georgia and Crown Princess Margareta take a long time to get going, at least mine did. A honeysuckle should be OK too.
