Morning all.

We had a lie in this morning.

When I wrote to Nora about my problems with the website she said it wasn’t to do with the Forum, it was to do with my Internet speed. But I don’t have any problems with anything else, only the Forum. I think there are too many ads and they keep changing. When they change it all gets stuck. I said I thought people had left because of the change of the Forum, but Nora said that had nothing to do with it – the Forum members have increased by 30% over the last year. I wasn’t talking about casuals, I meant regulars who dropped out. Nora said people had only left because of unpleasantness.

 Another sunny day, have been putting the sprinkler on the beds last night and this morning. So dry.

Maybe it's just too young. Have you fed it?

That looks exciting, Bob, full of promise!

Gorgeous Constance, FG, and stunning camellia and magnolia Stellata. Bowles Mauve is amazing the way it carries on all year. Tom, that looks really good for under a year.

Our lunch party for our friends who are moving back to England went very well. People brought some yummy food, Coronation Chicken, Salmon quiche, beef pie, chocolate cake, Bakewell Tart, strawberry and cream cake. I did a marinated roast chicken and salads. We gave them book of watercolours of Dordogne scenes by a local artist.

The smell in the larder has gone.

Sun has come out now and I need to do some watering.

Sorry about Runny's mouth ulcers, not a good day to get them.

We used to go to church, then have Sunday lunch, then, if it wasn't raining, have an Easter egg hunt in the garden. If it was raining then the hunt was in the sitting room. Just small chocolate eggs wrapped in foil. When my children were small we did the same with them.

Our guests have gone, lunch went really well, everyone brought something to eat or drink. We'll miss our friends when they go back to Yorkshire next week, but we hope to see them in July.
