Hello all. Is there a thread for the Garden Gallery yet for this year? I couldn't find it, so I've started one, but if there is already one I'll join it.

I haven't posted on Garden Gallery for a while because I was selling my house in France with its big, beautiful garden. I had to downsize house and garden and live nearer civilisation. It was very isolated, expensive to maintain and had phone and Internet problems. Most of the time I couldn't see photos here because of the poor Internet. It was lovely when I was young with family, no longer young.

Here is my old garden.

This is my new garden, hardly a garden yet, mostly grass, but I have plans.

I weeded and planted this bed this afternoon. It's "after" first, then "before", they turned out the wrong way round!

    Please post any further comments on old thread.

    (Busy Lizzie, easiest way to do this until you get the mods to close it)

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    I know nothing more than anyone else ... my presumption is that it’s  Daniel and the rest of the team as usual ... as with other folk there’ll be staffing issues due to Covid, WAH etc. Nothing is normal at the moment ... the wonder is that so much of life is able to carry on as it does 👍

    Ok. Thanks. I have emailed Daniel several times over the past few months and heard nothing back.

    Dove is the all-wise, all-knowing Buddha-Yoda of our group, I'm afraid she has to deal with that fact. Just say 'Om' and nod sagely.


  • I am so sad you have to sell your old garden. It looks like a parkland. What are you going to replace it with?

    Daniel is the EDITOR of a magazine, he doesn't care 'bout a stupid "magazine" and its forum. IMMEDIATE MEDIA is nothing to do with BBC. Wonder about license fee and links to Immediate Media.

    @delski - Daniel has been very helpful for the years that I have been on the forum. Just not heard from him recently.
