Morning all.

I rang DD a couple of days ago, Lily P. She has a friend from England staying with her.

OH has booked another flight, less convenient though, on Saturday as it seems a lot of flights in the SW are affected by the strike. We won't know from RyanAir until this evening for tomorrow's flight.

Has been raining here too but at the moment it's not raining.

That photo!

Chuck and grow seeds

For me Ladybird poppies were unusual, I've never seen them in France, Great Dixter a couple of years ago was the first time.

I've never seen Ammi Majus here either, except in my garden last year. Bought the seeds in England.

Do you mean like hardy annuals? Like poppies and Love in a Mist. Last year I saw them growing together in someone's garden and it was really pretty. I like the Ladybird poppies, they looked lovely at Great Dixter.

I don't know about my flight yet, Ryan Air tend to let you know at the last minute, maybe tomorrow evening.

But most women seem to wear trousers or jeans today anyway, so how do we know the man version isn't just a man?

!!Surprise Surprise!!

I hope you aren't discouraged Jacqueline, but pictures of flowers are lovely and I look forward to seeing yours.

There are hares here, no rabbits around my house. It's limestone and the topsoil is very thin, no scope for burrows. But there are rabbits in the valley. One year I hadn't cut anything down in the long border and a female hare moved in. She had 4 babies, so cute, but they started to grow and they ate my campanulas so I had to chase them out, plenty of other space here for hares to live, but my garden isn't one of them!

Must go and dish up the chicken pie.
