Busy - where did you find your Betty Corning? I had to leave mine behind and haven't seen one here.
Dove - love the arch but have to say we bought all ours in Belgium for about 35€ - same size but cirved top. We loved them and had 4 in different bits of the garden, 3 as functioning archways/passages and 1 borrowing the landscape on the edge of the cow pasture. They all had clems.
Been to a plant fair at Vouvant today and came home with a whole host of goodies including herbs to finish that bed, some more perennials and an experiment. A list will follow when I've made one. Perhaps we need an HRT confessions thread - Horticultural Retail Therapy so chaps can join in too.
It's warm here so I've been and watered all the treasures, old and new, and now we're flopping until dinner time. Better put it in to roast first.
Clari - I've been thinking of a fire pit but we have an old ceramic wood burner stove I found in a brocante in Angoulême a couple of years ago. I'm hoping that will do the job nicely. Bought it after seeing someone with a pair either side of their front door in Verteuil - using them as summer plant displays with flowers instead of flames.
Greetings to all I've missed and all yet to come. Hope you're having a good day.
