The version of our gardens that we long to see again

Posted: 12/02/2017 at 21:38

What a lovely thread at this time of year, thank you Wonky. I was looking at photos of my garden in summer the other day, but I'm used to my garden. But don't forget everyone to post your photos on this thread when your gardens start to unfold, there are already some lovely snowdrops etc. And there are links to previous garden photos. Sorry Wonky, I'm advertising, at least it's not kitchens! http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/garden-gallery-2017/991008.html/ 

Here is a look back from me.

Been out most of the day. Had a delish lunch with friends and lots of chat.

Laptop seems to be working at the moment so just read back, but a lot to comment on and memory is hopeless. Hope everyone had a good weekend and Joyce, punkdoc and all not well people are feeling better. Going to look around the forum while laptop is behaving.

Think obelixx asked when my new car is arriving. End of April. It will be flame red, hopefully I won't lose it in the SM car park.

Have had quite an eventful day. Babysat for little grandsons this morning. This afternoon went to the Renault garage with my son, test drove a car similar to the one I want, then ordered a new car. They have offered me a generous amount for my old car. I thought it was 12, but son looked at my registration document and said it's 13. Thank you to Mum, who left me the money a few years ago when she died.

I saw that news about the wedding dress on TV about an hour ago, the young bride looked beautiful in it, such a gorgeous dress.

Tartiflette is well known here, I like it but OH doesn't. Fattening!

Morning all.

Going to babysit for son as DIL has her 6 month echography for 3rd baby due in May. Then lunch with them, then going to look at cars as mine is 12 years old.

Little black ants on your leg Pat!! Aarrggh!

I liked GW better when Alan T did it. I like him. Of course Geoff Hamilton was the best though.

Enjoyed Big Dreams Small Spaces tonight. The 2 couples worked very hard to make 2 lovely gardens.

Where I am, in Dordogne, France, we often have temperatures of 34° in summer. We tend to have stone houses with wooden shutters instead of air con. But now, in Feb. it's cold.

Hello all.

Laptop is working for everything except this forum, very slow. I think there are too many ads on the forum and they upset laptop. Our signal isn't good at the best of times. I wish the forum was still in the old format, worked so much better.

Well done Possum. Tears of joy

We are going to the Malvern Spring Show in May, after going to our cottage in Norfolk, so booked 2 different ferries, Dunkirk on way there, overnight ferry from Portsmouth on way back. Staying with friends I met via this forum. I'm a member of the RHS so got price reduced tickets.

Then in July we are going to Norfolk but stopping at son's on the way near Auxerre. My latest grandchild to be christened so all the family are going. Will drive from them to ferry at Dunkirk. On the way back we hope to go to Monet's garden that I have never seen. Need to find a B&B or small hotel near Giverny.

Morning all.

Been doing paperwork. Ferry tickets and things. Laptop was working fine until I decided to look at this site then it went on strike. Makes me nervous to come on here.

Was -5° white frost this morning.
