Morning all.

OH's birthday today. I'm taking him out to lunch to a restaurant with a Michelin star. I hope it's nice. His favourite restaurant is away on holiday.

She said she was glad that it was a young family buying it and that it would be a family home that children would grow up in.

Back from looking after the grandchildren. Daughter and her OH have now signed the first contract and they should be moving in April. The lady selling the house is very nice and was a bit upset, it was her family home for years and her grandfather built it but she is elderly and feels it's time to move into a smaller house in a village nearer her children.

My two little grandchildren were very good, we played games and I lost each time! Not on purpose either.

Have a good day skiing, DD. Daughter and her family came back from skiing in the Pyrenees yesterday.

Won't be here tomorrow either, on Granny duty. Daughter and her OH are going to the bank to sign about the loan then to the notaire to sign the first contract for the lovely house they made the offer for.

fuchsia Lena

Lena is a hardy Fuschia in a sheltered position. But I wouldn't plant out new baby plants until the frosts are finished.

Anyone grow Agapanthus in border

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 23:27

I had Headbourne Hybrids in a border when I lived in Kent years ago, sheltered, close to the house. They looked wonderful. I planted a hardy Agapanthus in a border last year, hope it comes up this year.

Perhaps there's a gate in the wall!

I like curves too, but my bed in front of a wall is straight.

Lupins can look good on their own. The photo is Great Dixter in June 2013.
