As some of you know, my garden will be open on Sunday 17th May, so I'm starting this to show you some photos, starting with weeding. It's more stressful than I thought, but OH and Matty are helping.

When I came back to Dordogne from the Malvern Spring with Matty the goosegrass was horrendous. Here's before and after.

Morning all.

Dosed up with painkillers and decongestant, had reasonable night, pain still there but not as sharp. Thank you for hugs and good wishes.

I could start a thread with photos of my Open Day if you like. I was sad that the tulips were over, but the roses are coming out. Rained in the night, so won't need to water today.

Weed or not

I don't prune mine and it still sends up suckers.

Weed or not

It looks like suckers from a prunus tree. Doesn't even have to be that close to the tree. I've got one that does it, can't pull them out. I cut them off.

Garden is open on Sunday. Done masses of weeding and planting and Matty has helped with rest periods. But today I was digging out some very solid clay before digging in some better soil, manure and compost. Stepped over plants with very heavy trug of clay and coughed. Still have a cough. Think I've pulled a muscle in my ribcage. Hurts. Coughing is not helping. Ouch.

Morning all. More gardening today, they said it would rain but have changed their minds.

I enjoyed the Chelsea Challenge programme but I didn't like last night's winner, I thought it was boring.

GG, I'm growing cornflowers, clarkia, larkspurs, calendula, lavatera Silver Cup, Balsamina, Cosmos, Ageratum Blue Mink and Zinnias. The plants at the top right are peas for eating.
