Growing Geraniums

I live in Dordogne, some years the last frost is mid April, other years it's mid May. I don't put pelargoniums out until the first or second week of May. I remember, a few years ago, sleet and only 2° on the last weekend in May!

Verdun, no one accused you of lying, but you said "I was told their supply comes from B & Q." That is not quite the same as B&Q and Crocus using the same suppliers. No one has back pedalled either.

We went to Tesco, then a GC. Bought some seeds to take back. Then we went exploring and had tea in a tea room. Back to France tomorrow.

Thank you for setting that straight, Chicky. I have only heard good reports of Crocus from English friends.

I think we went through that bit of Norwich on Saturday! DIL and SIL got lost but found us eventually.

Great shed Solent Wind!

Glad you survived Hosta, I hope the pain goes soon.

We went for a midday drink with our nice neighbours.

Have planted the pots in the shade on the patio and raked the bank behind the wall and scattered a packet of mixed annuals seeds on it.

Garden table arrived, not broken this time, looks nice, has a tiled top.

What is your weather like?

Was a lovely day in Norfolk yesterday, except for a nippy breeze. Sunny, up to 14°. Today it's raining.

Maybe we could meet you there in June, Dove. Any more news of Ma? Such a worrying time of uncertainty for you.

B&Q have just been and collected the broken garden table they'd delivered. They'll be back later with the replacement.

We have been invited by neighbours for a drink at midday.

Dove, one village we went to was Horning, pretty, but I expect it will be bustling in the summer.

Morning all.

Pat, thousands of the migrants are genuine. In a village very near us in France some French people got together to welcome 2 families from Iraq. One day they were in their homes when men from ISIS armed with knives and guns banged on their doors and told them either to join them or be shot or leave their homes immediately, taking nothing. They were picked up by a charity, sleeping on a pavement. One family had 4 small children and mum was pregnant. Her baby girl has now been born in France. They are both Christian families. The men from ISIS said they were aiming to eradicate Christians.
