Strange PM from unknown person.

Well, she doesn't think I'm nice, I haven't got one!

HELLO FORKERS!

Thank you Stacey. Any chance of sending some of your ace ice cream recipes? I like nuts, chocolate and caramel and OH likes fruit esp. raspberries. Please  Just going to look up that book.

Ooh Verdun, I can't wait!

Sons gave me an ice cream maker for Christmas. Needed room in the freezer for the bowl before I can use it. Having roast duck tonight with roast parsnips, potatoes, squash and red onions, all from the garden. Will be enough for tomorrow.

don't waste my time plant!

Lavenders and rosemary grow really well here. I like my lavender hedge.

I wish the montbretia and euphorbia grifithii wouldn't keep dying! And I lost my lovely Headbourne Hybrid Agapanthus 2 winters ago. Had to buy them in England as they don't seem to sell them in Dordogne. Should have brought them in, but they'd got so big and heavy. What one can grow depends so much on the climate. Long, hot, dry summers here and really cold and often very wet winters, also snow.

Earlier this winter I dug out a rampant phygelius. 3 or 4 years ago I dug out a rather nice, but past it's sell by date, blueish juniper and I had a lovely new area for planting!

I've never had a pm like that from this site. But I do get begging emails or people wanting to pay huge sums of money into my bank account quite regularly. I wouldn't respond though, she wants you to give her your private email address as she wants you to write to hers.

But she's right about one thing! You do sound a nice person.

How awful for his family, and for him not to live his life as he should have done. My brother died when he was 21, cancer of the spine. But I'm glad you are safely home, John.

Morning all.

My 2nd OH hoovers, washes up and deals with the logs and woodburners, but he's retired. 1st OH did nothing in the house but then he worked and I gave up going out to work when I had 4 children. 2nd OH was a widower so he had to look after himself for a few years. When I met 1st OH he was still taking his washing to his mother!

Another grey day but sun is forecast for next week. Hope so because local river is almost at top of it's banks.

Welcome Button and 2 dogs.

Love Little Ann's mug, want one like that!

This is what it looks like here most days, often with rain.
