Just seen our weather forecast, rain and gales. Going to lunch with friends tomorrow, south of Bergerac so a bit of a drive. Hope the weather isn't too awful.

Morning all.

I know many of my flowers are earlier here, especially roses, because of our long hot summers. But I'm surprised that snowdrops are earlier here too because we tend to have colder winters than in the UK.

Oh bother, Dove, had been feeling jealous that you'd recovered so quickly! Hope it doesn't last too long this time.

Glad Flatters has returned. He may have already dined at another cat's place though.

Forecast is for gales and rain here too.

OH gives me membership every year as an ongoing birthday present. Have been to the 4 main RHS gardens and many others and this year I have a discount on tickets for the Malvern Spring Show. It usually pays back the subscription.

That must be very superior fencing Obelixx. My wooden posts were 2.55€ each x 20 (he re-used a few of the old ones, 60€ for man to bang in posts and clear away the old ones and about 70€ for new electric white ribbon and insulators.

Here is "Grumpy" snowdrop.

Glad you are enjoying your trip Topbird.

I'm feeling really tired after all that walking about the paddock, mending the fence. Coughing more again. Rib still hurts. Shoulder tendonitis still giving twinges. Oh dear what a moaner I am. OH has gone to choir practice, I'm having a mug of coffee with painkillers. I never used to take painkillers.

My snowdrops are coming out too. I think they've increased since last year. I won a snowdrop in the gardening club quiz last year, called Grumpy, because it has a grumpy face on it's petals, it's now in flower. In a pot to keep it separate from the normal ones.
