It's looking really good. If you get hot dry spells over a long period, though, I would worry about not watering at all.

Hello Chicky, not quite home yet, in our pied a terre flat in Eastbourne, but finished exploring in Shropshire and Worcestershire. Leaving England on Sunday, staying night with son near Orleans then back to Dordogne on Monday.

Your garden is looking lovely. What are the little blue stars? Laurentia?? So pretty.

Don't worry Mrs. G, for some months now my photos don't appear in the order I put them and I never know where the writing will turn up!

Osteospermums never survive the winter in Dordogne.

Any idea of Rose Variety?

It's definitely not Albertine or Shropshire Lad. Could well be New Dawn. I have all 3, ND has the roundest petals and looks pointy in the middle when new and much looser when older, like your picture. Paler pink than Albertine, less peachy, smaller flower with far fewer petals than SL.

David, I already mentioned that the DA restaurant had a queue coming out of the door at lunchtime! We did have a hot chocolate when we arrived, but not lunch. Also the B & B did a good breakfast.

I have a Shropshire Lad in a pot and my daughter has A Generous Gardener and St. Swithun. They are all lovely.

My Shropshire Lad in the photos.

I can recommend "the Pilgrim" too. Here is mine. Mine is in a pot. This is last year, it's taller this year, but haven't a good photo.

Your garden is stunning, Lyn, it's come on hugely since I first saw photos of it. You have worked very hard.

HELLO FORKERS!
