My garden looks like it's been burgled!

I still have Salvia Amistad and Wendy's wish in flower. But when I was weeding and planting tulips yesterday I found daffodil shoots. Haven't had a frost yet in Dordogne, most unusual.

What big shiny thing?  Grey here.

Gardening in a T shirt, in December!  Needs to be 20° for me to do that!

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Still haven't had a frost here.

Going to a Christmas Fair tomorrow, hope to get a couple more stocking presents. In aid of a charity that looks after retired English police horses here in France.

Oh dear Yvie, I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope it doesn't happen.

Dropped in for a catch up but it's almost bedtime.

HELLO FORKERS!

Panda, really! 

Hi KEF

Been gardening this afternoon until rained off. Only one bag of tulips left to plant now. Taken ages because of the weeding and clearing and manuring to do first.

I sow them every spring and they are flowering by summer, so if they don't last the winter then just buy or beg some seeds.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

My Mum was in a home for the last couple of years - her choice. But at the end, when she felt she had had enough and wanted to join my Dad (she believed in heaven) she refused to eat and drink and no one could make her, so that is how she died, but it was her choice and peaceful at the end. Her lovely brother, who was 84, sat up all that night with her. She was 87.

It's a big worry......

I still have horses, but I'm getting nervous about going out on my own. Most of my riding friends have stopped riding. 2 of mine are retired anyway and the youngest one is my daughter's. Arthritis is becoming more of a problem - for me and the old horses.

Are there seeds that don't like very cold storage?
