HELLO FORKERS!

Hello janetclaire, nice to meet you.

Has poured today, cold, only 9°, ridiculous for May in the Dordogne. Roses are battered.

Have cleaned dining room. Did I say 2 sons and wives and 2 grandchildren (one is the new baby, he'll have Mummy's milk) are coming to lunch on Sunday? It's French Mother's Day.

Dicentra Spectabilis has had its name changed to Lamprocapnos Spectabbilis. I prefer its old name, also Bleeding Heart and Lady in the Bath. If you pick a flower, turn it upside down and pull slightly at the sides it looks like a lady in a bath!

Happy Birthday Clari.

We've done the shopping. Raining 9°.

Have found this pic of Tuscany Suberb which is a more accurate colour, feel fairly sure that's what it is.

I'd wondered about Tuscany Superb too. It's more deep crimson than purple in real life, the photo has changed the colour.

David, what are all those little white flowers on the ground? It looks beautiful where you live.

That looks like Euphorbia Grifthii, but it's a bit pinker than usual, must be the photo. Probably "Fireglow".

Morning all.

Raining. Weekly shop today. Sons x 2 & families coming to Sunday lunch Sunday, Mother's Day in France.

The red shines out beautifully against the path.

My garden is now a bit battered after the huge storm on Wednesday.

Does anyone know the name of this rose? It is a shrub, about 6 feet tall, only flowers once. My garden plan I've had since 1992 has vanished and I've forgotten some of the names.

I would have thought so if you train it and tie it in and snip off the unwanted bits. Some honeysuckles would be too vigorous.

Been busy, social life and gardening until the huge storms yesterday. Garden looks somewhat battered.

I would nip them off.
