HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Morning all.

The thought of Trump as President is frightening.

Sounds warm where you are Obelixx, must be because of the sea. I'm a lot further south and it only got to 13°. +2° this morning instead of -2° so no frost today. Grass was white yesterday but the dahlias are still flowering.

Tree seems to be bleeding

That disease is also called Slime Flux. You can look them both up. I found this which sounds quite useful about treating it.  http://www.donsgarden.co.uk/pests/511

I'll have to come back later to see Fairygirl's photos as my Internet is sooo slow this morning. We stayed in Taynuilt by Loch Etive years ago on a family holiday and watched Highland games in Oban on a glorious warm summer's day.

aym, you said you like Norfolk, do you live there? OH has a cottage in South Norfolk, but it's not by the sea.

Well done DD, great news.

About to cook Pad Thai - whatever that is! Has chicken and prawns. Bought sauce in SM.

I hope you manage to enjoy your anniversary, Pat. It sounds so exotic negotiating kangaroos and wombats on the road! Deer and wild boar here.

Good luck with the Tearoom and the Maire, DD. Is there any sun near you? You could wear sunglasses.

We've been shopping and picked up my pullovers from M & S. They all fitted!

Good heavens Papi Jo, your flowers are amazing! I have Orkney Cherry, about 4 years old, stopped flowering in August and is only about 1 foot wide.

That's a gorgeous anemone. Does it need staking? I have an ordinary pink one and it always falls over if not securely tied up.

Morning all.

Have a happy anniversary the Fidgets.

Oh dear DD, maybe you've got something in it. Hope they sort it.

We are going to supermarket, need butter and milk and loo rolls. But first will pick up my M & S order of winter pullovers from the paper shop. The delivery people can never find my house.

Mild frost again -2°

Can you Identify this Jasmine & Share any tips?

That's encouraging.

My J. Polyanthum survived the winter outside the kitchen wall in a pot. It's twined itself all over the grill on the larder window. But it was a mild winter. Think I may re-pot it and leave it there as it's got too big to bring in.

I thought "Wild Swans" was a great book, really interesting. There are parts of the world I know nothing about. I enjoyed "City of Joy" and "Geisha" too.
