Morning all cold and windy here there was a light frost earlier on this morning but nothing like yesterdays frost. Just had a bowl of porridge now going to top up my bird feeding holders and tray's around the garden then read a book have a good day all.
Verdun I will admit it MIGHT have been me trampling over your grasses. Only might. Because my little bed socks were clean this morning. Its just that its awfully hard to find your way to the compost heap for a midnight pee in the dark! Do you mind if I install little landing lights across your garden for tonights jaunt?
Your neighbour is lovely by the way. Who knew that she's a fan of peeing in compost heaps too.
Clari, no need to go out in the dark and cold, our log cabin has plenty of loos for you to use. Its raining at the mo so could be boggy underfoot later as well. Smiley wink (smilies still not here)
Hiya. Hope it worked!
Back is now much better only gives me a hudge every now and again, but a few more days of not doing much will probably do it.
OH went out and raked the leaves yesterday - half filled the leaf bin and the oak still has an awful lot on it. Hope as they settle can just keep to the one.
Am going to N Worcester to buy some things for my winter project (Dunelm) and finish emptying the caravan on the way.
weather here is dark, wet and generally grim
Nope didn't work - wil try layer
Bye for now
Glad you're feeling better Matty. Be careful tidying caravan.
Great fun at the Hort soc AGM last night, nibbles, drinks and a quiz. We had a joke quiz this year where you have to supply the punchline to get your point . Lots of laughs. Best one was ….. what did the caterpillar say when he saw a butterfly ?
" You won't be getting me up in one of those"
Well , is it Sir Woody of Woodgreen , now?
Didn't get to caravan despite a burst of sunshine.
Have finally bought all I need for settee and I have spent afternoon doing some more to it, none of it required me to bend
Wish I could find a gardening society to visit.
Glad you are feeling little,better Matty
Nice joke Sir Woody
Cold windy day today but still a way above freezing comditions elsewhere I guess
Leaves are dropping off dogwoods now to reveal those nice red "sticks". They will provide nice backdrop and variation for the hellebores later. Mahonia charity flowering now, camellia and rhodo, etc buds a plenty and signs of daff growth. Wallflowers amd stocks threatening to flower. Who said winter is dull?
Cold windy day today but still a way above freezing comditions elsewhere I guess Temps of 5 rising to 8 -10 tomorrow.
Got hiccups, verdun?
Hello folks I'm back from southern parts - damp and chilly but some lovely russets and golds in the hedgerows, dotted with scarlet jewels and silvery gossamer. Beautiful I dropped my daughter at the little rural station for her journey home and there was a toothless old chap with a deerstalker hat with earflaps, sprinkling buckets of salt on the platforms. He was annoyed 'cos he'd done it in the morning and the rain had washed it off!!!
How's life down in the tropical southwest?
Be careful Matty
Are you Sir woodgreen? Sounds like it was a good evening.
Hope everybody had good day and didn't get too wet.
Sorry Dove, missed you out, my words were getting mixed up and had to start again.
Missed Verdun too, hope your getting used to the log cabin at the bottom of your garden, its very cosy
Hey Dove, that toothless old chap was meeeeeee Small world
Love the log cabin lily but it's over my rhubarb patch
Fidget, thought my post deserved two postings ...it's the way I tell em
Ooops sorry Verdun, we'll all move it after dinner. And i'll make a chocolate cake to make up for it.
I am now chair of the Hort soc, which is a bit strange as I am the new boy on the committee. My colleagues have all been members for a long time. Clearly a vote for anarchy. Now awaiting the summons to the Palace! I have a few new ideas, but softly, softly ……
Mmm, sounds suspicious to me Sir Woody - Why would only a new boy take on the job? What aren't they telling you?
