Hello Forkers ... June Edition

Posted: 12/06/2017 at 11:42

Been outside planting a veronicastrum and dahlias.

The French Election results of the first round for deputés (MPs) are in. Looks as though the French are still supporting the new President, Emmanuel Macron, the new En Marche! party are doing very well. Second round of voting next Sunday. It's quite amazing really, the usual parties are being voted out by something completely new with no previous MPs.

Morning all.
I was really tired last night. Son 2 rang to ask if we wanted to go and see his new house in the evening, but I was just dishing up dinner and we were too tired. I think he's a bit fed up we couldn't go over the weekend because of the Strawberry Tea, but we could have gone yesterday afternoon if he'd asked earlier.
This week should be quieter and I should be able to get on with the weeding. OH is going to England on Thursday to see friends and family.

What is your weather like? (2)

No, Aunty Rach, I don't like the heat. I like the early 20s and a bit of rain from time to time. SW France is too hot in summer and too cold in winter for me. Wasn't my choice though.

No it wasn't! I searched through my own followed threads. There are some lovely gardens in those threads. I enjoyed looking at the Saville Garden again. When we went about 3 years ago it was raining.

Does anyone know if there is a thread for Gardens we Have Visited 2017? I've done a search but I can't find it. I thought there was one.

Nick, your garden is lovely, you've made a huge difference.

Mark, there is a thread for gardens we have visited. This is more for our own gardens. I'll try to find the link.
