Do they need staking? Mine stand up by themselves.

It's been a nice afternoon, I was able to get out and weed most of the lower middle bed and plant some daisies.

Log man has re-roofed the shed. OH had to prune a lot of the clematis Montana growing up the shed, but not a bad thing as it was getting a bit out of control.

Sausages and mash, peas, fried onions and gravy tonight.

Doesn't look woody to me. I'd agree with penstemon - except that Uncle says it isn't! Oh dear, lots of plants have leaves like that, such as Michaelmas daisies and Golden Rod. I think the dark leaves could because they are old.

Witch hazel Strawberries and cream.

Avatar pics have gone because of a technical hitch, they are trying to sort it.

It is a copy and paste job, on my laptop I copy and paste the bar top left. You must click on the space bar after you've copied it, or continue typing or it won't come out in dark print to click on.

GWRS, you haven't read back either!

Morning all. Not a breath of wind here, grey and gloomy.

Verdun, you obviously don't read back, talked about lack of PMs and avatars last night.

Think it will be a housework and ironing day for me too. The log cutting man is coming to repair the shed roof which was damaged in the last gales.

Hope Hosta has a good journey this time.

Winter watch was lovely tonight, great shots of polecats, a fox fighting a golden eagle over a carcass - amazing, a mouse in a maze, and huge murmurations of starlings, and other things.
