HELLO FORKERS!

Bother, forgot the other bit.

Happy Birthday Clari! I hope that you manage to have a good day all the same and Mr. Clari is forgiven.

Strange, I wrote something earlier, but it's not there now. Not that it said anything important, only this, as far as I remember.

Morning all. No real plans today, apart from chicken Tandoori tonight. OH's relations are still here, but we'll just relax.

Must have forgotten to click on submit.

That is the only one I've managed to grow Chicky. It gets too hot for them in summer here and that one is in the shade. That bed had a young prunus tree and wasn't in the shade but the tree has grown. I left the dahlias there and they just come up every year and have survived the winters and the shade!

Yes, Lily, they are day lilies, fuschia ricartonii behind that I've had for over 20 years and a climbing perennial pea.

That's right Bekkie. We had lunch in Domme and went on a boat on the river Dordogne yesterday and went to a bring and share lunch with friends today and visited a French garden, but there was a thunderstorm. English gardens are better.

Bedtime.

Haven't had much time to come on here, have guests, been busy and been out a lot.

Lovely photos OL. 

Gardeners hands! Best cream?

Bekkie, you aren't allergic to your gloves are you? Has anyone said that? I've come here a bit late and rather skimmed through. I always wear gardening gloves and rub in hand cream at night, just an ordinary one like Vaseline. But recently my lovely OH bought me David Austin's expensive hand cream when we went to see his rose garden. I love it and it smells wonderful too.

Pink roses look lovely edged by blue nepeta.

I just missed the Eton College gardens.

It poured today and I got soaked, very sudden.
