HELLO FORKERS! July Edition

Posted: 28/07/2016 at 10:25

The service was quite moving, for the murdered priest and those and their families who have been killed by terrorists. Also it was nice to chat to French people who I haven't seen for a bit. They were very welcoming to us 5 Anglicans who went.


It's raining! But not very hard, I hope it does enough to water the garden.

You should try French tea aym! Tastes of nothing. I love chicken, so versatile, the flavour is in the sauce!


Daisy, you are doing what I've been doing in SW France. I'm English and I've made an English garden full of roses and perennials, but it can be hard because the summers are hotter and dryer than England and the winters are colder.

I agree with karen paul. Charlie is a lovely natural presenter.


Whether I like the designs or not the gardens all look better after the makeover. The owners are happy and it's up to them to keep the gardens looking nice.


I enjoyed Changing Rooms too.

We went to the supermarket this morning, then we bought a new TV for the bedroom. Still had an old very fat one there.


Internet has been a bit iffy today.


Getting up early tomorrow to go to French Mass with Anglican friends to show sympathy for the murder of the French priest.

So would I. Rainbows always look brighter in real life, anyway.

I live in a country where snails are a delicacy  they taste like black rubber and garlic


July is a month when gardening should be kept to minimum, it's the holidays. The holiday in France start at the beginning of July. That applies to HW too.

Morning aym and Verdun. And what if we said nice things - would they be lies too?

Can you suggest a plant?

I didn't know what Margaritas were either so I looked them up and found that they are indeed argyranthemums. I was given a free tray of yellow ones by my plug plant nursery and they have all died. They seemed to dry out very quickly and they didn't like being in the sun. I looked them up and read that they like the sun but not very hot sun. The sun in Dordogne is very hot. They are also a lot shorter than 1 1/2 to 2 metres.


I love heleniums and veronicastrums and I have both, but they don't flower as long as 3 months here.
