Garden Visits 2017

Posted: 17/05/2017 at 19:49

This isn't really a garden visit, it's a show visit, but there were gardens in it. Last week I went to the Malvern Spring Festival.

Internet went today, just come back.

Been hot, we went to the SM for supplies when it was the hottest. But now it's clouded over and is windy, looks as though rain is coming.

This morning I had a huge GH shuffle. Took plants out of cold frames, put them on weed sup. fabric in veg garden, refilled cold frames with plants from the GH. Now the GH will be ready for tomatoes when I've removed the trestle table.

Morning all.

Going to be hot today, but rain coming tomorrow.

I will see Jean (new grandson) tomorrow. I must call him John and speak to him in English.

Was 29° when we arrived back in Dordogne yesterday, but rain is forecast for tomorrow. It was on the cold side while we were in Norfolk and rather wet in Malvern, but there was one sunny day in Malvern.

Hello, we arrived home this afternoon, but Internet has been off, just come back. Can't believe how much everything has grown, apart from the trees and the fig damaged when it frosted. Dahlias are recovering. Roses are out, early. OH has already mown the lawns. So much to do.

Hello from a ferry in the Channel. There was a wonderful buffet and I'm afraid I over indulged   Have just been watching a magic show by  clever Frenchman.

Do be careful, Dove, my daughter lost 60% of her hearing in one ear because the doc wouldn't give her antibiotics.

Obelixx, it's an overnight ferry from Portsmouth.

Seen the weather forecast for Dordogne, 29°! Bit hot for me. Would you like to swap, Hosta? You could have my ferry ticket!

Morning al. Rained in the night in Malvern.

New baby is called John, or Jean in French (not pronounced the English way).

We are going south today to catch a ferry back to France.
