Gorgeous collection of photos, Charlie. Haven't finished looking at them yet as it's bedtime. But I hope no one goes near those cute bunnies with a rifle!

Thank you.

Plant 4 is Gaillardia Cornetto Blaze from a French plug plant company. I think they have it in the USA.

Clematis is "Multi blue".

Open Day over, busy but fun. Matty was great. Have posted on my Open Garden thread with photos. Thank you for your good wishes and encouragement.

Have had antibiotics, cortisone, paracetemol and white wine, feel OK

Looking forward to Chelsea, have I missed the first programme?

Thank you everyone. 56 people came, mostly English and a few French. Weather was OK, sun came out this afternoon, 20°, didn't rain. Plants were bought, not all, and lots of cake was eaten. Good to see you Dordogne Damsel and thank you for the cakes. I must give you your box back. Matty was great. The 56 don't include Matty and the helpers or my daughter and family (they were staying and helping), but my son came with wife and 2 friends and they all paid.

I sowed the GW offer zinnias like Lin but my tray was in an electric propagator to keep them at 20°.  28 germinated and are about a foot tall. I wonder how many seeds everyone had. I think I had 30.

Thank you Obelix.

Veg garden open too, but not the tidiest, especially with all the weed fabric that looks a bit ugly.

Just come back from the doctor as I was coughing a lot in the night. I have bronchitis, 3rd time this year, with a torn muscle from coughing  Doc says all those years of living with 1st OH who was a very heavy smoker (died aged 53) have made my lungs fragile.

Daughter will arrive soon so must get on with lunch, there will be 8 of us and it's 10.30am (French time).
