HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Must get out into garden today, sun is shining. Haven't had a frost yet so can't really get on with the autumn clear up. I don't clear it all up though, leave some for wild life and winter protection.

We have a Lidl, Dove, otherwise I might have asked for one of those fat bars of chocolate covered marzipan

What a lot of tomatoes, David. Had to clear all mine away. Blight outside, whitefly in GH. Never had whitefly before. Usually pick last tomato in December.

Thank you everyone for being so kind.

Lily I been thinking of you and your friend. The shingles seems to have gone on a long time, how horrid for her to have that added on to the rest. When I had it the doc gave me something that really took the burning out. xx

Thank you OL. Feel a bit mean downloading it all on forkers, but needed to get it off chest, sharing troubles makes you feel supported.

That sounds a good idea Lily Pilly I'm looking forward to lovely English bread, Dordogne bread is all crust and holes. Nice croissants though.

Today has really been not a good day. SIL (1st OHs sister, rang very early this morning. BIL has had a ruptured aorta, it's been repaired but he's in a coma. One of Son No 2's best friends, really nice young French man with lovely wife and baby daughter, was hit by a car while cycling with his cycling club and is in a coma, doctors can't say if he'll recover. One of our friends, husband of my gardening friend, has had a serious operation, but, although he's in pain at the moment, the doc says he's be OK.

I plant mine in November, but that's only a few days away.

Welcome back, Fidget. I expect house and GH will recover.

We had a lovely lunch out at my friend's. She'd invited some of the people I've known the longest in Dordogne. When we left home this morning to go to church it was only 7° so I wore a pullover with a skirt, a fleece and tights. By the time we arrived at friend's the sun was shining it was 20° and she'd put out chairs in the sun in the garden. Stripped off tights and fleece but was boiling in the pullover, though it was only a light one. Luckily lunch was indoors.

Yvie, I have 2 Agastaches that I potted on yesterday, thanks to Verdun, Black Adder and Blue Boa. I hope they will be OK spending the winter in a cold frame. Also 3 Geums, including Totally Tangerine, also thanks to Verdun. Will have to do some reshuffling in flowerbeds. Oh yes, also salvia uliginosa - Verdun again! But I've just seen that that likes damp soil, bother, no chance here in summer!
