It looks like a Broom or Cytisus. But I don't know which variety.

Why did I buy all these plants

Posted: 16/04/2016 at 09:23

A couple of years ago I did exactly the same as you, Lou. Even bought them from Paradise Park too! We were staying in Eastbourne visiting family. The car boot was full on the way home to France and I was scared customs would confiscate them, but they didn't. I managed to squeeze them all in though, but I did widen a bed.

Morning all.

Snap DD! I'll be in the GH too. Absolutely sodden here. More seeds to sow, need a GH shuffle to make room.

Have just had a Hot Cross Bun for brekkies too! 3 left.

What is your weather like?

Since we got back to France it has poured and poured. How am I going to prepare my garden for the Open Day if it carries on like this? Forecast is more heavy rain and thunderstorms.

Putting a line in means putting a cannula into a vein to give liquids as in an intravenous drip or medicine like with a morphine pump. But it will need a nurse or a doctor to do it, don't know why they couldn't pick it up from the pharmacy on the way, but the chemist should deliver it as priority.

The priorities seem all wrong, but I suppose it's because the drunken boy is young.

When I started nursing the hospital was run by matron and the doctors and nurses with some secretarial staff. There was a hospital kitchen to supply meals and the cleaners were employed by the hospital. But the nurses did the cleaning immediately around the patients. It all seemed to go smoothly, no waiting lists, infections were rare. Now the hospitals are run by management staff, cleaners come from outside companies, food from kitchens far away and nurses aren't allowed to clean. It doesn't work so well any more.

I really hope someone can find you some help soon, Lyn.

Morning all.

Hugs to you, Chicky. I hope they find out what it is as soon as possible and put it right.

SM this morning, if OH is in agreement we may go to the GC and get some peppers, courgettes etc - never got round to sowing them. Or do you all think there is still time?

We flew back to France this afternoon. Thanks KEF. Flight was OK but the plane came in very fast and landed with a huge thud! Was sad to leave England.

House sitter has looked after my baby plants well, they and the garden ones are growing like mad. Leaves coming out on the trees, daffodils over, lilac showing colour. But the weeds are growing fast too, everything needs weeding

I live in Dordogne, some years the last frost is mid April, other years it's mid May. I don't put pelargoniums out until the first or second week of May. I remember, a few years ago, sleet and only 2° on the last weekend in May!
