I got here via my postings seems all right at the moment. Thanks Lizzie for the info on French gardens I will print it out and put it in the holiday folder. getting quite a few pages in there.

Talking of ponds, the groundsman at Mums res. home has cordoned off the pond as he says it has tested positive for e-coli, apparently he says it is quite common in fish ponds. He did seem a bit vague so whether it's true I don't know.

Been watching the Red Arrows this afternoon practising, just four of them, looping the loop.

Hi Lizzie,

We are coming to the Dordogne in May and was hoping to visit some French gardens when we are there, any suggestions. We will be quite near Sarlat. The gardens we have visited were mainly in the Loire Valley, around the chateaus. I like flowers as well and am very interested in vegetable growing, The French seem to be particularly good at it.

Looking forward to Monty's prog tonight. We have visited a few of the gardens he is featuring, Villandry being a particular favourite. the French vegetable gardens are really spectacular. Should be well worth watching, perhaps give us some ideas for this years planting, will just need to be scaled down somewhat

Good Morning All.

It's a pain about your lights Jean, we have got some old fashioned garden lights,that work off the mains, and most of the shades were blown all over the garden, some ending up in the pond, but otherwise we were luck enough to get away with no damage to the garden and fences.

Bunny, --  lovely dog and by the way, you have an echo
