 It didn't turn the right way round when I clicked, so I've turned it, hope it stays turned when I post it. Healthy looking plants.

I was frisked once, the woman doing the frisking said "Ooh I like your perfume, could it be Eternity by Calvin Klein? It was.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Cool and windy.

Planted up 8 pots and troughs around the house. Replaced pansies, violas and wallflowers with petunias, diascia, euphorbia Diamond Frost and ageratums. Some petunias are the Tumbelina ones, some purple shades and some veined "Reflections".

Sowing annuals

Hardy annuals will be fine, mine are 6 -9" tall now, outside. Half hardy annuals need heat, shelf over radiator, electric propagator. Getting a bit late for sowing.

Watched Chelsea, but I must admit I fell asleep a bit in the middle! So tired!

I have Flames of Passion too.

Does it really matter what they wear, within reason. Each one has their own style. It's the plants and gardens that should be on show. (And Chris Beardshaw, of course )

Obelixx, it is a fairly new Open Garden Scheme for France (started by English).   but the new website has had some teething problems! They are hoping it will turn out like the yellow book and the Embassy in Paris has even offered to open their garden.

On my Open Day on Sunday I did tea and cake and plant sales.

The gardening club have all left, they seemed to like my garden and they've all had coffee and biscuits. Phew!
