Am knackered. Whose silly idea was it to open my garden on Sunday?

Punkdoc's meal sounds yummy.

We had to go to the SM this morning so went to the GC s well. I wanted a group 3 clematis, preferably Niobe, and a honeysuckle "Serotina" but the GC had neither. I asked an employee which of the clematis that they had, very limited choice, were pruning group 3 and he hadn't a clue what I was talking about. He wasn't a salesperson, he was one of the GC's "trained advisors". French GCs aren't a patch on English ones. There were loads of pelargoniums though.

Good point Mr J, I'd like that too.

I hope it isn't a case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Yesterday I had a GH sort out, put more in the cold frames to make room for newly potted up French Marigolds and Lavatera Silver Cup and newly sown runner beans. First lot of runner beans are up.

Then weeded half the lower trellis bed, filling in old mole tunnels as I did it.

Morning all. Sunny, but 0° at 7am - again. I wanted to harden up plants for the plant sale at my Open Garden on Sunday, but I daren't leave them out at night.

I've put it in the compost and it hasn't spread, it just rotted down. My comfrey bed is next to a lawn and mowing controls it.

My Lily of the Valley is just coming out. I have a sprig in flower on the kitchen table. The French give it to each other for good luck too. Once sellers used to sell it in laybys along the roads. Never seem to see them now, but today I haven't been out as I've been gardening.

Is "the Low" the one I met Dove in? It was lovely, with nooky drinking areas and beer in barrels in the tap room. We had sandwiches in chunky bread with lots of filling. Has it changed hands since?

Morning all.

I think we sang Dove's song at school, I know we sang something but I thought maybe it had nonny no in it.


Sun is back out again. Greenhouse potting on then weeding lower trellis bed.
