Rose has been adorable, chatters a lot for someone only 2. Having her sleep. Then we are going back to hospital to see her Mummy and baby sister.

I planted my Agapanthus, Panda. Have enough pots already! Wanted the contrast of the leaves in the bed too. Just wish I know how hardy it is, lady in the GC said they always leave "Star Quality" outside in the winter.

Verdun said "Well, still alive and kicking after my comment yesterday  (tongue in cheek) on the sexism thread." Now I'm dying to know, which is the sexism thread?

Night Dove.

Anna is cute, but bigger and less dainty, with more hair than her older sister had (2 1/2 now). She also has a loud voice and poor DIL is exhausted. I will be looking after Rose tomorrow as son has to go to work. He should then have 3 days off. In France mums say in hospital until the milk is in.

Do any of you leave any sorts of Agapanthus out in the winter? I have a new one called "Star Quality" label says it's hardy. Does anyone know it?

Overgrown Garden in France

It seems the West of England has had the good weather, it was only 15° today and raining. My outdoor tomatoes are showing signs of blight. When we were in England and while family was staying the last week the weeds grew like mad, especially in the well manured veg garden. Been weeding the flowers, was going to start on the veggies today but was asked out to lunch then son rang, have new baby granddaughter so going to south of Orleans.

My son No 1 (who ate worms while I weeded when he was very small) rang today. His wife had their 2nd daughter this morning, my 8th grandchild!

Overgrown Garden in France

Hello Jap3, I'm the lady who lives in France that OL mentioned. I didn't see this as I was on holiday in England, didn't have time or internet connection to read everything. Saint Yrieux is about 50 mins from me, I'm about 20 mins north east of Périgueux.

We moved to this house in 1990, no garden then, farmyard and field and unlived in for 6 years. But I was younger then! It was hard work, especially as we are in Perigord Blanc, known for it's limestone. Good luck with your garden.
