Morning all.

Another wow Hazel! How old are they? Sorry your OH is poorly.

Been a busy week and Internet continues to be troublesome. Apparently most of the Dordogne were without it the other day.

 Was out most of the day yesterday, but passed the GC so was able to buy some more dahlias and tomato plants. The dahlias I’d stored all rotted, the ones in the garden are now starting to shoot, early, frost risk not over yet. My tomato seedlings burnt in the GH when I went out leaving the door and windows shut.

 We had lunch outside yesterday in the sunshine, first time this year.

 Today I’m making about 30 rounds of sandwiches for the orchestra and soloists’ tea. Tonight is OH’s choir’s concert, first night, in the local town. Tomorrow it’s in another town. “The Messiah”.

Morning all.

Well done, Hosta!

Saw a flush of blue from the bedroom window. The bluebells are out in the shady corner by the summer paddock. My favourite wildflower. That is where I'm going to bury Tigger's ashes (Border Collie) but I didn't want to upset the bluebells, was waiting for them to come out. I wonder if there will be any left in England when we arrive on 30th May.

Today I will be making about 30 rounds of sandwiches for orchestra and soloists for tonight's concert, "The Messiah".

What is your weather like? (2)

Yes, we had home made lamb burgers with my first shoots of mint, parsley and chives in them. And Dordogne Gariguette strawberries.

We had lunch in the garden today, first time this year. About 15° but warm in the sun.

Think I'll soon have the same problem as Fairy. Laptop only keeps its charge for 10 minutes.

Evening all.

Busy day for me because I've been out for most of it. Meeting in Périgueux this morning. Went to the GC on the way home to buy some more Dahlias because my stored ones had rotted and some tomato plants because mine didn't germinate and the ones that did collapsed when the GH was too hot. Took a friend to another friend's Easter chocolate sale this afternoon. Then sowed more broad beans and planted up the Dahlias in pots in the GH. Must have colour for open garden in July!

It was a lovely sunny day, but windy now. We had lunch in the garden for the first time this year.

Now going to read back to see what you've all been doing

It will have to be, probably take that long to put up the GH!

Morning everyone.

Internet was down on Monday. France Telecom rang, said it wasn’t just me it was miles around and would be repaired by yesterday morning. It was, but it’s still rubbish until late evening.

Have found a new way! Type posts on Word then copy and paste.

 At least it meant that gardening was done yesterday instead of faffing about in front of the Laptop.

This morning, supermarket, this afternoon I’m going to an Open Garden meeting about opening our gardens like the NGS. Mine will be open on 9th July. For charity, main one is for children with cancer.

I wonder if Arial would be better. Sorry, experimenting. Think that's it!
