Gardening by the Moon

Hello , lovely cruise down the Seine to Rouen , didn't realise how big the river was , also stayed with sister in law in Swindon which breaks up journey to / from Southampton 

The Medival centre of Rouen was lovely , visited Monets garden which I very much liked but more English than French I thought , what do you think ? 

Glad you had a good fair , plants sound interesting 

Blight on tomatoes not much fun 

Got back last night , been tidying garden up / green house , was hoping to go to allotment at weekend but heavy rain forecast tomorrow 

Thanks for September calendar , glad you found conference interesting , I assume it was in French , so are you fluent in it ? 

Hope you are keeping well

Hello all , back from hols , only read New September page 

Locked car keys , did it once many years ago in a Ford Cortina , including house keys , it was on the drive fortunat they still had Police on the beat and by sheer bit of luck one was walking past so he broke into the car for me , amazing how easy it was in the olden days !

Hope everybody is well 

Been gardening this morning about to do some more
