It`s okay......I can walk from here..............

The weather is simply divine here!! Many apologies for the interruption on the story of Nanny Dot but we have been out in the warm sunshine for the last 2days catching up with the gardening. We have a wonderful gardener who usually visits once a week to cut the lawns here, but three weeks ago he was at home using a stone cutter that slipped and cut into his knee very badly. He has been laid up at home with a leg full of stitches and so, needless to say the warm weather had made our lawns out of control!


Last year after years together Mark and I finally tied the knot and some good friends bought us a gift of a voucher for a local garden centre. We held onto the voucher as with all the renovations taking place we have no idea what we will plant and where. But one year on the voucher was due to expire so off we went to make our choice. We decided that anything planted to climb up the walls of the main chateau building could stay in place so we chose a honeysuckle, a jasmine and a huge wisteria.
I thought the wisteria was very apt as it is a huge architectural tree with two roots that join at the middle and then twists together like two lovers.

What I wasn`t prepared for was how much the snails seem to like the wisteria and not the other two new plants! We lifted off all of the snails we found this morning but these two made me laugh so much...................

Any chance of a lift?


Thats wonderful thanks......I think I`ll get down now...............................

Wonderful thank you..................It`s okay.....I can walk from here...................................

A demain mes belles.....................
