Some have had trouble posting photos on the new site. Maybe it was raining too hard when they wanted to take a photo so they changed their minds.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 30/05/2016 at 13:48

Veg garden is all planted up now, planted over 20 troughs and big pots, still some more to do. But done nothing for the last 2 days, heavy rain.

What is your weather like?

Had heavy rain, 15° so far today, similar yesterday.

The rain is absolutely tipping down, 15°.


Been shopping, forgot the slow release fertiliser granules for my pots


Whitsun was Sunday 15th May. I think in England it's now just the Spring bank holiday on the last weekend in May.

It's a wonder the hills of Dordogne haven't been flattened by camping cars.


Maybe it didn't happen Hosta, you were reasonable from day 1.

Morning all. I'm behind Punkdoc too.


We are feeling fed up. The French have announced a General Strike for 14th June, the day we are flying to Norfolk. There have been so many strikes recently, lack of petrol, lorries blocking motorways, piles of burning rubber tyres around Paris, cancelled flights and ferries.


Rain today, going shopping. Groceries and yet more potting compost.

Beautiful, beautiful photos, thank you so much. I got much more from them than from watching it on TV. You can linger over photos.

I love that gate in the wall, makes you want to look into the other side.

It's rained most of the day and we've been out most of the day. Visited a friend's garden, this morning, that she was opening like I did for Open Gardens eu, like the NGS. Then saw another eco garden and house built with straw bales and had it's own reed bed sewage system. Very pretty though with blue Nigella and red poppies.


Then we went to a choral festival, OH sang in one of the choirs, in South Dordogne. Came home, had pizza, watched the rest of the Hollow Crown, Richard III.


Glad you had a good time Obelixx, except for the traffic. Must go and look at the photos.


Your garden is really coming on Dove, lovely tree. I hope to be in tough when you get back. We are going to Norfolk on the 14th June and now the French have announced a General Strike on that day


Crikey, Fairy's garden looks a real challenge!
