I'm the sane one, but I think Lily or is it Mrs. Garden, no, must be KEF always says she is.

Outrageous sexism!!!!!

Not all men are that daft! My second OH (we were both widowed) cooked for himself after his wife died, I do it now because we each do what we are best at. He notices new additions to the garden, he even chose my latest rose " Lady Emma Hamilton". I'm so glad we found each other, we have become real and equal friends. Although we can both laugh when one of us does something silly!

Stacey, there are garden designs with a bit set aside for toys and something soft on the ground, like bark chippings, but cars like Edd's, I think, are better on a terrace.

I've thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread and I agree with a lot of it.

Dove, I couldn't get those plastic riding boots on either and I've got big flat feet. I have big hands and wear men's gloves, so that's not a problem.

I was pretty strong when I was young, but I still liked feeling feminine when men offered to carry things and open doors, but my sister didn't, she went on marches for rights for women. Men and women are different, thank God, more exciting like that, vive la difference! But women should be paid the same as a man for doing the same job as a man. Probably are in England, wonder about France sometimes! I have found English men to be better mannered and more gallant than French ones.

My OH does the mowing, not because he's a man, but because he isn't knowledgeable about plants and, being older, he can't weed on his knees! He does the vacuuming and I do the dusting, that's a matter of preference for both of us, I cook, he washes up. But we are both retired. When I had 4 small children with OH No 1 I was lucky that he earned enough for me to stay at home. He worked long hours so I did the cooking, cleaning, shopping etc. One has to adapt to your lifestyle.

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?
