Thank you Mrs. Garden. The masses were actually rather nice people, they liked gardens!

Totally Tangerine

Totally Tangerine divides very easily. I was given a big one in the autumn and I potted up bits I pulled off it, even without much root. They grew very well in the cold greenhouse over winter and now I have more plants, gave one to my daughter.

I hope it isn't snowing in Saxmundham when we are in Suffolk in July. Once here in Dordogne I was hosting a charity Strawberry tea the end of May and it snowed, 2°.

My daughter wears a hearing aid, the GP kept saying she hadn't got ear infections when she had, as she had a slightly distorted tube.

Taking Matty to the airport tomorrow.

Did anyone watch Chelsea? Shall go and see if there is a Chelsea thread.

Had to go to a Committee meeting this morning, now need to do my tax return, has to be posted by tomorrow. The French only give 3 weeks and I've been away about 12 days and had my garden open. Have I said all that before?

Matty here

Great day yesterday - so good to meet lots of people all really interested in plants and gardening.

On my wish list now apart from the Gallardia id the Rose Tuscany - scent is wonderful

Lovely to meet DD as well we had a long chat while I showed her around the garden.

Initially we showed visitors around to ensure they saw the whole garden, then we let them wander. Many of them commented about the Gallardia Cornetto Blaze, it really is a spectacular plant but Seems to not be available in Britain, unless anyone can find it!

My French improved by leaps and bounds in one day!

I fly home tomorrow

Gorgeous collection of photos, Charlie. Haven't finished looking at them yet as it's bedtime. But I hope no one goes near those cute bunnies with a rifle!

Thank you.

Plant 4 is Gaillardia Cornetto Blaze from a French plug plant company. I think they have it in the USA.

Clematis is "Multi blue".

Open Day over, busy but fun. Matty was great. Have posted on my Open Garden thread with photos. Thank you for your good wishes and encouragement.

Have had antibiotics, cortisone, paracetemol and white wine, feel OK

Looking forward to Chelsea, have I missed the first programme?
