Got through my Garden Talk and survived! Thank you for your good wishes. I was horrible to OH this morning, got myself into a state, now I know why actresses and singers are Divas. You get an adrenaline rush that swooshes you along so you lose your fear! It was called "Creating an English Garden in France" and there were lots of photos, not just my garden but Beth Chatto, Great Dixter, Sissinghurst etc. They gave me a book by Rosemary Verey and a free lunch with wine for me and OH. Then they asked me to judge their flower show in July! There were about 60 gardening club people.

I've just discovered on birthday thread that you used to be able to send a birthday card found on Google but there is no facility for that now on the camera icon. You can only send your own photos, unless you copy and paste into your own photo files. Is this intentional? Copyright? It used to be useful when helping people to identify plants.

It is looking better, but I don't have green at all, it's a pale blue/grey.


The font is smaller, but it's almost too small. I find that the spaces are too big and the font could be a little bigger. I would prefer the font a bit darker and the background a little less white, but it's much better than it was in the beginning.


It's great to have the page numbers at the top of the page as well as at the bottom.


Hurray edit works!


Because I wanted to add that I wish you would get rid of the bright purple of the unfollow, it makes me want to click on it when I don't want to unfollow. I think some people have mentioned it already.

The cutting garden 2016

Posted: 12/05/2016 at 19:13

My hardy annuals are coming up in my cutting bed and I have some half hardy ones hardening off which will join them. Sweet peas are starting to grow, planted against the trellis in the cutting bed.
