Yours are looking great Mickey. It's so exciting when they come up (and so heart breaking when a horrid slug gets them!).

Here are mine. But photo was about 2 weeks ago.

Thank you everyone. The grass is a carex that was given to me. The lilac bits are phlox subulata. The garden is big because it was an old farm in SW France, so when I made it I had topsoil put on the farmyard (which was covered in rough grass, nettles and brambles), and I could nick a bit of field as well. We terraced around the house in stone and built pillars for roses from local stone (at least, a local mason did). Not much topsoil here, limestone.The euphorbias probably look bigger than they are because in the last photo I'm standing below the bottom wall and taking the photo from almost ground level. It is all terraced and on three levels. House is on a slope, lots of steps inside.

I'm not guilty, don't have neighbours! But any snail I find is quickly trodden on. Especially the 5 caught eating my new clematis.

Mike, I get so busy in the Spring, I'm very behind with reading posts on here. Just seen this and wanted to tell you I'll say a little prayer, even a big one. I really hope it all works out for you, what a horrible thing to happen. But they can do wonders nowadays. Hugs ((( )))

HELLO FORKERS!

Been very busy preparing to go to England on Sunday with the 8 French friends.

Have weeded, sorted the GH, sown runner beans and sweetcorn.

Tracey, we used to go skiing every year when children were at home. First OH loved it. So easy when living in France, look up accommodation, book directly and drive there with the skis on the roof of the car. Did it instead of summer holidays often as we live in a holiday sort of place. Been to the Pyrenees and the Massif Central, but the Alps were best. I liked Meribel. But it's all more expensive now than it was.

Panda I watched "Love your Garden" too, missed most of the first series. Enjoyed it.

Must go to bed. OH is already there.

HELLO FORKERS!

Quiches look really yummy.

So sorry about your friend, Dove. Big hugs ((( )))

Chicky, if I can get to visit the Savill garden in Windsor I will be happy. We will stay a few days there as it's cheaper than London and we got a good deal on the hotel.

HELLO FORKERS!

Thanks Dove, it's worse than hosting a dinner party!

Morning all.

Next week I will be in England with a group of French friends (and OH).They want to see Canterbury, London and Oxford and asked me to arrange it. It has been complicated as there will be 10 of us with 2 hire cars and Ryanair.

It's really not a convenient time to leave the garden and the GH, full of babies, hope the housesitter manages to keep it all watered. It had to be over the Easter holidays because a couple are teachers and there are the 2 daughters of one couple. Should be fun though. 

I have masses to do before we go so this may be my last post for a bit.
