Don't worry Mrs. G, for some months now my photos don't appear in the order I put them and I never know where the writing will turn up!

Osteospermums never survive the winter in Dordogne.

Any idea of Rose Variety?

It's definitely not Albertine or Shropshire Lad. Could well be New Dawn. I have all 3, ND has the roundest petals and looks pointy in the middle when new and much looser when older, like your picture. Paler pink than Albertine, less peachy, smaller flower with far fewer petals than SL.

David, I already mentioned that the DA restaurant had a queue coming out of the door at lunchtime! We did have a hot chocolate when we arrived, but not lunch. Also the B & B did a good breakfast.

I have a Shropshire Lad in a pot and my daughter has A Generous Gardener and St. Swithun. They are all lovely.

My Shropshire Lad in the photos.

I can recommend "the Pilgrim" too. Here is mine. Mine is in a pot. This is last year, it's taller this year, but haven't a good photo.

Your garden is stunning, Lyn, it's come on hugely since I first saw photos of it. You have worked very hard.

David, we had all those when I lived in England. Now I'm worried about getting the climbers through customs when we get the ferry home. They are quite big and in flower. But DA do export to France.

David Austen's garden was stunning, best I've ever seen. Perfect time of year for it. We got there early, just as well as by lunchtime it was full of people and there was a queue outside the restaurant door. Bought Teasing Georgia climber, Crown Princess Margarita climber, Lady Emma Hamilton and Rosa Complicata. Will eventually send photos, but signal is bad here and we are just off to eat;

Morning all. Just typed a post and lost signal so it disappeared. Breakfast about to come.

See you after David Austin! xx
