Obelixx, I get the fabric from the supermarkets in spring or (better quality) from garden centres or DIY places.

Runny, that description of summer sounds idyllic, but don't you ever have hot showers and fresh sheets in winter?

I've been raking the veg garden and trying to put down the permeable weed stopping fabric but there's a bit of a wind and it's a bit of a struggle. Come in for liquid refreshment. No, not alcohol, elderberry cordial.

I get electric shocks from SM trolleys and cars, too.

Pat, you've mentioned Regina several times, but I seem to have missed the post that said who she is. Who is she?

That's a lovely way of putting it, Hazel!

I'm in Dordogne, SW France. Weather in early 20s last few days. Have had to do some watering. The trees are greening up, grass is growing like made. Daffodils and Magnolia Leonard Messel are over. Tulips and English bluebells are in flower. Dahlias left in the ground are starting to shoot so I hope we don't get a frost. We can get frosts up to early May.

Sweet peas - plant out?

They are hardy, but as they are babies I would put them somewhere protected until the forecast is a bit kinder.

Just enjoyed looking at the lovely photos. Internet wouldn't let me yesterday. Don't think I've ever managed a pot of hyacinths without at least one flop!

Great looking planters. Gorgeous tulips.

I hope the membrane works for you. My French son in law hills the soil for his carrots and they do well. I hope you don't get a frost, the sweet corn looks almost ready to plant out.

Morning all.

My plug plants should be arriving tomorrow, according to the email I've just had.

My new car, red Megane Estate, has arrived at the garage.  Just waiting for the bank to do it's bit. My lovely Mum left me the money in her will when she died 5 years ago, but my old car wasn't ready to go then.

What was said last night. We may be virtual friends on here and come and go, but there are real people behind the posts. I have met real people from this forum, all lovely, and made one real and lasting friend a few years ago who we are going to stay with in May and visit the Malvern Spring Show. I hope SG Lily is OK, she's been posting here for a few years. I wonder what happened to KEF? Nice that Orchid Lady popped back recently.
