Have been busy already loading up compost bins with old hangigng basket. container plants - now very overfull but it will sink
Hoping for rain, as we haven't had any since well before I went to Bath (3 weeks) Very warm, very dull and not windy here.
Vet appointment is made for late tomorow afternoon - hope it's just old age.
Aren't they the most gorgeous leaves? If I had an acid soil I would have brought it home.
Beautiful leaves,all the colours of Autumn in one leaf
Sorry I am so late in adding my best wishes Stacey,hope all goes well.
It's gorgeous Good job we don't have acid soils FB - saved ourselves a heap of dosh!!!
Morning all.... well it's so dark the only thing I can say at this time with any certantiy is my garden is still there...... Grape jelly on croissants for bfast yum yum... Have a great day all... Gg do you want more crocosmia for the station?
Good morning all, good morning Stacey Any chance of lobbing a croissant over this way - OH ate the last of the loaf yesterday evening so no toast for me I shall have to have porridge when I get to work
Love that witch hazel fidget - looks like someone has painted the leaves.
dark and dank here too - thats the thing i hate most about this season - the dark.
have been given quinces by a friend - any ideas about how best to use them??
Just noticed the witch hazels price tag - hope it was a big one
Love quinces - you can make membrillo - a sort of solid quince jelly - wonderful with cheese, or use it to flavour apple jelly.
I use quince when pot-roasting pheasant - don't peel, just chop into quarters (they're very tough, don't worry) and put in the pot with the pheasant, a bit of cider, some apple and celery it'll sort of melt slowly as the pheasant cooks. When the pheasant is cooked whizz it all up with a blender and add a dash of cream - to die for
They'll keep a while in a fruit-bowl, keep them in your sitting room and they'll perfume the house.
Morning all not been on for a good few days really busy at work it's the official opening of the school this Thursday. Got the garden club tonight man giving a talk on sweet peas, bowling tomorrow night, parent's night thursday working and also working friday dance class on in school.

Good morning Andy - good to see you Have a good day!
Morning all. Hello Andy - good to have you back! Busy time for you - hope you're keeping well just now
Dove that sounds too good. You live like a queen- just one that's run out of bread I've got some pain au choc- hurry before youngest daughter snaffles the lot though!
Work for me but might get something done later if I have time. Spent a bit of time on front grass and border yesterday and it's looking very fresh and tidy.
Just noticed that price tag chick- ooh err missus. I bought 15 plants yesterday and it was only 12 quid more.

I meant - whizz all the fruit/veg and juices up and add cream then serve with the pheasant - when I read it back it looked as though I meant whizz the pheasant up as well - although you could I suppose ..... cream of pheasant soup?
We knew what you meant Dove- although at the start I had to re read because when you said 'don't peel' I thought for a moment it could have been the pheasant!
Toast for me this morning (sorry Dove), no fancy pastries for me Wishing I could go back to bed, am tired today and it looks very cold out there.
Sending a good day to all
Morning fairygirl, what is a cimcifuga? Also would love to see pics of garden please as my son has just bought his first house which has a courtyard garden, and would love to see what could be done, with the help from his mum!!
The witch hazel was quite a big bush, about 3ft and well branched. Witch hazels are always expensive . I love the fine leaved japanese maples too. They also need acid soil and are horrendously expensive for a large one.
