You are OL to me too, but really you are your Christian name that you used in the beginning to me. Lovely hellebores, wish mine flowered as well and I wish they sold deep pink ones here. They are so expensive here, often 16€ a plant, £12 -£13, and that can just be white ones.

Good morning all.

We enjoyed Poldark last night, but didn't see the tanker. Perhaps we didn't look out to sea. I wish they weren't showing Poldark, Mr Selfridge and Indian Summer all at once, gets complicated, need 2 TVs and +1 on one channel. Some nights there's nothing on that we want to watch.

Bit grey today, but a little warmer.

Confession Times!

I use 2B pencils to write on white labels, the pencil never comes off, but sometimes I forget to label everything.

Well, if Blue Boa is hardier then Yvie and I just need to wait a little longer perhaps. I don't have any fresh new leaves to rub.

Garden Girl, yes loads of tiny weeny petunias are up, all 4 varieties, but the trailing ones were slightly later.

Edd's photo has arrived, Black Adder's leaves are more sharply serrated than that.

My Agastache Blue Boa looks like a handful of dead sticks. Thanks to Verdun,, I bought Blue Boa and Black Adder last autumn. As I have never kept an Agastache in the flower borders through winter, I potted them on and put both in a cold frame. Black Adder never lost all it's leaves, which are rather pale green now, but it is making new darker heart shaped leaves with serrated edges. Blue Boa has died down completely and I'm wondering if, or when, it will show.

Photo test thread only...

Lovely crocuses and lovely garden.

Just click on "OK" at the bottom of the garbled error message and it will go away, Mine aren't taking any longer than usual, but I have very slow internet here anyway.

Morning all. Happy Mother's Day. But it isn't in France, it's in May.

Thank you Lily, just what's needed, I'll take it to bed with me. Goodnight.

I've felt a bit under the weather today, temperature a bit up. Sore throat, hope I'm not getting another cold , last one was bad enough and there is so much to do in the garden. Done nothing today.
