Glad you are feeling better DD.

Our lunch guests have gone. The slow cooked lamb was yummy and our friends were chatty so we had a good time.

Enjoy Ireland and your family Liri, was going to ask where in Ireland but Wonky has said Galway.

Well done Wonky, hope they take notice.

That sounds lovely Topbird. I'd wondered about roses but roses need some care.

My Aztec Pearl is still under 3 feet after 8 years. It's still bushy. it's bed gets quite dry in summer.

It starts off quite small, well I suppose how big it is when bought would make a difference. I planted mine in 2007 and it grows a bit each year. It's not big like Choisya Ternata.

Sounds great, would love to go, but can't. I saw several of Monet's paintings when we were in New York last year. I live in France but I haven't been to Monet's garden yet, a long way.

Begonia tubers

I find Begonia plug plants grow very well, the Illumination series or the Dragon's Wing ones are great in pots. I buy them online.

That looks grand. Is it your house or are you the head gardener?

What about Lavender, Caryopteris, Abelia, Choisya Aztec Pearl or White Dazzler?

Chicky, my Mum lived in Battle and I often drove down Powdermill Lane, but I had no idea that hotel was there!

Anyone done any gardening today?

Lovely and sunny now, but the ground is sodden and I'm busy with other things.

How lovely, Panda.

Topbird, your garden sounds as though it will be gorgeous.

Have cleaned the dining room, prepared the veg and the lamb is slow cooking in the oven as there won't be time to do the whole cook tomorrow, back in the oven in the morning.
