We have all that in common, Lily! Except I do like fish, unless it's not very fresh then the smell

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all.

Thanks for the link, Dove. We used to take that ferry on family holidays when I was a child. Was talking about family holidays with my brother last night on the phone. Granny's house is now a luxury holiday home, the inside has completely changed. Was sort of Georgian and elegant with carpets, now lots of wood.

Meteo France has changed the weather forecast on Saturday, sunny periods 27°, storms for Monday evening. Sun 30° for today.

Lovely photo Chicky, it almost looks like a painting.

Gosh what a lot you've all written today. I've been so busy I don't think I've been here. Have just put some pics on the Gallery though.

Not doing any more weeding, think it'll do for Saturday. OH has cleaned all the garden tables and chairs, bless him. We'll arrange them tomorrow and I must arrange the plant sale in the garage, which is like a barn. 60 people have booked. I made a big fruit cake this evening and will make scones on Saturday morning. Friends are bringing more cakes.

The weather forecast can't make it's mind up. Was sun, now it's thunderstorms.

Lovely pond area David, yes I agree it's looking really good. I don't have a ligularia. I bought the forest pansy at the Eden Project in Cornwall in 2011, they used them as shrubs in the backs of borders. It's a bushy, multistemmed one. Had masses of flowers this year for the first time. I will have to prune it to stop it getting too big.

Lovely roses Salino.

That youtube was so beautiful. I'm waiting for my new William Shakespeare to flower.

When we lived in Kent, before '85 I used to enter my roses in the village rose show. Sometimes I did quite well. When rain was forecast I would tie little clear plastic bags over the flowers! I had masses of roses there. Very fertile clay.

If it has big flowers and healthy leaves then you have probably fed it enough. Some roses are just like that and may need a little tying to a discreet support. Do you know what variety it is?
