 There's probably enough cake for everyone, and the beer's on draught so plenty there too

The Met Office thinks that 1st dec. is start of Winter. As has been indisputably established on this thread Autumn does not start until 1st November, and today is the very end of late Summer. Thank you everyone for going along with my foible.

Looks tempting.

Had Adam's ale before but not Bitter

Well the poor old celts had no fancy supermarket calendars to go by and they said Winter starts now. Must be that global warming thing has moved it to December 1st.

Good morning all 

Pretty name Archie - happy birthday to your grandaughter 

When we went to bed last night we checked outside as we always do, and there was Hefty Hedgehog drinking from the dish of fresh rainwater we top up every evening.  Even if they don't eat much of the food we put out on they always seem to drink from that little dish.

Happy birthday mahinor!

and welcome to the first day of autumn - this year it has seemed a long time coming.  Have a feeling it might be a fleeting season this year.....

haven't seen any hedgehogs on Autumnwatch yet - but loving the mermerations, and looking forward to the red squirrels tonight.  Small matter of a day's work to get through first though

Good morning Chicky   Oh yes love those starlings.  If we time it right we might get to see the ones over the reedbeds near where my parents live when we visit them on Remembrance Sunday.    Absolutely wonderful.

Not so rural, but we once sat transfixed watching them round Brighton Pier

Morning all. Nice clear morning here. Good to see you all had fun last night, I was snuggled up in bed by ,9.00. No ghouls visited us last night, just as well as I forgot to buy the sweets. Work again today. Happy November everyone.
