I assume you mean in shade as it's woodland. Tiarella  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/howtogrow/8390534/How-to-grow-Tiarella-Spring-Symphony.html   pulmonarias, anemone blanda, forget me nots, Brunnera "Jack Frost", snowdrops, violas, bluebells. In my shady bit I put in a few annuals for summer colour, BusyLizzies and bedding begonias.

Broad bean problem

They do die from the bottom up, as Mark says when they are ready to make little pods. Yours are way in advance of mine.

It was only 13° after lunch here. But comfortable for gardening.

My mother was in a good home too, but I was amazed to see on the news that it's not obligatory for carers to have any training and it's up to the boss or owner of the home. No state certificate and some don't get any training.

Have earthed up the potatoes and put in the supports for the broad beans. And weeded the future sweet corn bed.

That happened to me last year. Someone advised planting them on a little mound of earth to let the water drain. Then when the weather got warm I just pushed some seeds into the ground outside in different places and it worked! A bit on the late side. They were Marketmore.

Mine is on a north facing wall, just gets the last of the sun at the end of the day. It flowers fine.

Glad you had a good time, puncdoc. We loved Venice last year.

Have weeded the broad beans, lettuces and future runner bean patch. Just off to earth up the potatoes and do the supports for the broad beans.

is this clematis cirrhosa?

Fairygirl, Dordogne is very green and forested, rains quite hard. Winters usually colder than UK and summers hotter. Often in the 30s. But it never seems typical! Some years people talk of drought, others, of too much rain or snow. Rather like England, but more extreme.

I love it that Chicky's children are chicklets!
