Hello Forkers - May Edition

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.

Don't think I posted yesterday so I don't think I told you the important news!  New grandson was born in the early hours of yesterday morning, in France.Dentist son and lovely French DIL. Weighed over 9lbs, their 3rd son, my 10th grandchild.

We have just been to a fantastic plant nursery, bought clematis Niobe and Blue Angel and some other plants. I hope they all fit in the car and I hope nothing gets confiscated at the port.

Malvern Spring Festival

I went, really enjoyed it, but I didn't think it was as good as 2years ago, not as many Show gardens, couldn't find the 2 clematis I wanted. Seemed to be more commercial stands, clothes, furniture etc but fewer plants stands.

will post some photos when I get home but staying with friends so haven't got my laptop.

Morning all.

I hope Chicky's dad is OK.

I didn't see Beaus Mum either at the Show. Matty had a bright green jacket too, but she got too warm and took it off. I think BM has posted some of my photos!

We watched GW last night, I wish they'd spend more time on the Show and show the bits about the exhibitor's on a later show. They showed very little, my favorite gardens weren't shown at all, nor the Floral Art, nor all the smaller stand apart from the rockery one. But they did show a garden we didn't see at all, which won best in Show. Where the heck was it? We thought we'd covered everything.

I agree about Frances's hideous trousers!

Evening all. Glad you're home more or less in one piece, Punkdoc.

We had a lovely day at the Malvern Show. Bought several plants, our friends bought a garden shed! Well, ordered it. Saw James Alexander Sinclair, Carol Klein and Jo Swift. It poured twice, once when we were in the Floral Art marquee and again when we were in the big Floral Pavilion,so we didn't get wet. I can't post photos until next week when we are back in France and I have my own laptop instead of this iPad of OH's.

Garden Visits 2017

Sorry we missed your garden visit thread, Chicky. Maybe you, or someone could put this one's link on it. I'm on the iPad now as we are about to leave Norfolk for Malvern.

Obelixx, I used to use photobucket but when our French Internet got so bad it became difficult. I often can't look at pics people send by photobucket so I've missed  lot of Berghill's photos and some of yours.

I don't think the Picton garden is open at this time of year, it's a late summer, autumn garden.
