What a lot of gorgeousness! Love that purple allium against the Philadelphus and the way the pale pink lilac shows up against the dark background. RB's rose is a beautiful shape.

I've only seen Amsonia once, at Waterperry Gardens. Been wanting to buy it ever since, but never seen it for sale.

They have currants, sultanas and raisons in different size packets and prices in Leclerc in Trélissac. I use that soft brown sugar called Vergoise, comes light brown and dark brown, has more flavour. I'm not keen on candied peel so I use a spoon of marmalade instead. Isn't there a large supermarket anywhere near you?

Morning all.

What can't you get for the fruit cake DD? I can get everything I need in Leclerc, but it's not your local.

Going to weed the top middle bed then going to lunch with son and 2 small grandsons.

Mr Muscle, I can never see anything on the page until I click on my avatar on the top right hand corner, then I get my profile so I can click on messages and they come up in the old forum format.

Gosh you go to bed early RB. Or have you just snuck off to watch TV? Glad your son's leg is getting better. It sounded horrific.

I've spent most of the day in the garden, except when there was a downpour.

Going to lunch with son and small GSs tomorrow.

Had a marathon session of weeding, edging and planting today. Finished the upper trellis bed, the end bed, the woodland bed and the lower middle bed. Rain stopped play for a bit, but went out again, came in 30mins ago.

Sparkles you can have lovely bits for this thread and messy bits for the other one. All gardens have messy bits, I call my rubbish area where I throw stuff like creeping buttercup and bindweed, the Unpleasurance, found the name in a funny book about gardening.

Thank you, Joyce, Chicky and RB.

The peach rose is a climbing Shropshire Lad.

What to do with my front garden? Ideas welcome

Crab apples are pretty in the spring and you can make jelly from their attractive fruit in the autumn. An Amalanchier gives white blossom in the spring and Autumn colour.
