Do you know where your pets are tonight?

My Border Collie is in bed indoors. He hates bangs, especially thunder, but, living in France, no fireworks tonight. Fireworks are in the summer, especially 14th July, Bastille Day.

HELLO FORKERS!

Runnybeak, how awful for you. I hope something happens to stop it, but if it goes ahead I hope it is tasteful with nice gardens.

The farmers protest was a bit of a damp squib. Traffic flowed OK, but I took the country route in to town anyway. Babysat for son's baby, came home, cooked very late lunch, cleared away summer planting from sundial bed, dug in compost and slow release fertiliser, planted blue and yellow pansies, had long chat with daughter on telephone and now I'm here. But must go and wash kitchen floor while OH is out of the way at choir practice.

So do I.

3° this morning.

Will be on Granny duty at lunchtime. But the farmers are driving into town with their tractors to protest about something, so the roads will be merry hell! Will have to find a country way. Son has Wednesdays off as it's his wife's busiest day (orthodontist), so he looks after their baby. But he has an appointment today. In France a lot of Primary schools have Wednesday off and Secondary schools have a half day. Most of DIL's patients are children.

The chestnuts have gone orange and are losing their leaves, but the oaks are still fairly green. The liquidambers on the way into town are flaming. But a cold wet spell is on it's way.

Edd, why don't you start a new thread on all that, then people will see it and know it's there? Bit heavy for this light hearted chat thread.

Lovely colours Bill.

Here in France we do quite a lot of recycling of rubbish. I've hardly been out of Europe. I think we are lucky to live here.

Mucked out horses and finished weeding, digging and planting the long thin bed below the trellis. Added 5 barrows manure and 2 sacks compost. Planted 50 pink tulips and 15 purple ones, a load of violas and some forget-me-nots and a couple more perennials. Then emptied 2 troughs of pelargoniums and blue salvias and planted 20 pansies. Going to veg out in front of telly.

Does that mean he was a Steiff, Dove? They have ear tags and can be quite valuable. We gave my son (who is now a dentist) a Steiff fox from Hamleys when he was little, he loved it, it became know as "the flat fox" because he cuddled it so much.

Morning all.

Verdun, I don't know if you are brave or daft! Why pull up nettles with bare hands when you could wear gloves?

Must go and muck out the field shelter, yuk. At least it's future manure.
