Well its so dark here I can't even tell what the weather's like. Its not the changing weather that I dislike so much at this time of the year (late summer), but the increasing darkness. I just hate it when you leave the house in the dark, come home in the dark, and only get to "see" the garden (other than by torchlight) at the weekends.
Well, after that rather glum start, I had better get going - have a great week everyone.
Good morning Chicky - that was your 1000 post!
Well dine chucky on post 1000 ! The suns uo here but cold. Won't be long til every day is as you describe (sad smiley not working) .
Morning all n esp if I've clashed post with anyone
Have a good day all
And so this must be 1001
They always said I talk too much
Not anything like as much as me
Good morning Mrs G Well, winter draws on We need these cold nights to give us the beautiful autumn colours - should get some amazing leaf colour after this long hot summer shouldn't we? And the bulbs and seeds need the cold spell so that they grow in the spring. And a cold and wet winter is a good excuse for gardeners to sit indoors by the fire with their feet up and roast chestnuts
Morning all congrats on being a chatter box chicky lol 1000 wow how do you even tell that( I know you didn't count them all...) little one did a bit in the garden yesterday she emptied her raffia pig planter into the compost heap, filled it and then we planted bulbs in it lol she was soooo proud she chose sparaxia and some tete a tete daffs ( I had to take loads out when she wasn't looking!!) it feels like a very dark dank cold day today!dont think we will do muh today oh maybe some washing may even have to think about putting the heating on have a great day all....
Morning all. Well done Chicky. . . How do you know it's 1000 posts? I don't get email notifications so have to do manual checking
Cold and damp here, with no view to change today if the forecast is right. That just about makes work bearable!
have a good day all
Lol dove I want no chestnuts roasted on my fire!!
Morning all. Just going to work. Dull here but to brighten later. Haven't been on much lately- busy with other things and not been well over weekend. Hope everyone has a good day whatever they're up to.
Happy belated birthday cheers Verdi
Sorry- no money available to send - last week's nursery purchases cleaned me out.
ooooh what a grey day... I have to admit that these late summer days can be a bit
Off to water pots next, and a bit of tidying up generally.
Woody.....nearly the A word!
Rain overnight but drier now. Sun forecast for later.
Congrats to Chicky for 1000 posts on the forum. No idea what my count is
Beginning to consider what plants to move and where. Soon will start cutting hellebore leaves as well as other not so pristine summer foliage.
Hope everyone has good healthy day
YAY it's raining here, first proper rain we have had. Plants are slurping it up and looking better already,
Had to put on a pair of ankle length trousers and a pair of socks this morning, first time for months.
OH is moaning about cold but I am still in T-shirt. Fortunately had planned a GH day, but will have to top up the Christmas potatoes.
Just checked my posts - 6 posts off 4000
If you hover your curser over your avatar, very gently, you will see your garrulloussness count....doesn't help with spelling however
Dull and grey,we have had heavy rain overnight.
Just in the middle of cooking beetroot and we have had a power cut, had to bring the water back to the boil and start over as they had only been on a few minutes.Still will be worth it when we have beetroot sandwiches for lunch
Hey I have 4914 posts. Well. 4915 now. Oh, 4916
How come I've passed the 4000 mark without knowing it?
Happy Birthday Verdun (don't think you can check unless you actually post something)
Check no of posts in profile, my posts, will list so many of your grand total, says at the top. My next milestone will be 500.
seems my garroulessness count is pretty high. My spelling is different WW but still doesn't look right and can't be getting out of my seat to find a dictionary.
