Hi Eric, welcome to the Forum. I quite agree that you have some lovely plants there - the South of France sounds very inviting at present, it is rather cold and damp here in the South of England. Yes, your English is very good, much better than my French!

Your best friends appear to be working fine! (tu)

You have a lovely garden.
The South of France is a fantastic place to be a gardener!

Especially interested in Mesembs. small Aloes and South African miniatures.
Keen propagator and compulsive 'tickler'!
New interests since 2014 include winter growing bulbs, creating Echeveria hybrids, X Trichopsis and cold hardy Echinocereus.
