Hazel   I was just thinking earlier today that the garden is looking so much better than in other years, 'cos I've really been able to spend time and energy on it as I've not had work or elderly and poorly parents to eat into my time ....... and I remember thinking back to my first year of retirement when I tripped over the back step and broke my wrist and being glad that I was ok now ........... duh!

Thanks Nut .......... I think these self-seeded from before last ... they're looking amazing this year.  Thanks. 


I hope all goes wonderfully at the weekend  - you've certainly picked your weather ........ we had vague plans of travelling to the in-laws this weekend and popping in on  your Open Garden, but my dodgy knee has sabotaged my plans by dropping me unawares in the middle of a clump of Hesperis matronalis ... the knee's not too bad but I've a badly sprained ankle ........... so pee'd off I can't tell you! 


And the Hesperis is looking .................. wrecked! 

Can anyone name this plant?

Fantastic news DD ..................... I'd be leaping about with joy if I'd not just done me leg in!!!  


As it is I'll raise a big glass of something vaguely medicinal and drink a toast 


" to Chateau de Gateau ............  and all who bake, eat, live love and laugh there ........ much success to you"
