HELLO FORKERS! October Edition

Morning all


We enjoyed the barn dance last night. What we all lacked in skill we made up with laughter and enthusiasm! Good dinner, Hotpot then apple crumble with a buttery crisp crumble how I like it.

He sounds like a walking nightmare!


I am in SW France, Dordogne. It is hotter in the summer than England, but colder in winter. The French aren't so interested in gardening as the English, the climate here is harder anyway, but they like growing vegetables and pelargoniums.

Lovely story, Runnybeak. My first kiss was in the barn of the next door farm. I went out with him for 4 months, it worried my father who thought I was too young, I was 14 (or was it 15?).

Pleased it all seems to be going well, Obelixx. Your place sounds lovely.


Our first frost this morning, but not enough to blacken the dahlias. -2°


We are going to a barn dance this evening, organised by English people. I used to love them in our English village years ago. But I was young and fit then!

We had our first frost this morning, but only a mild one. The dahlias still look OK. -2°


But not so much out now. I'm glad I have Michaelmas daisies, they keep the garden pretty in September and October.

Scroggin, she's gorgeous, Border Collie's are my favourite, so much character and intelligence and beautiful too. I saw your lovely photos on the beach too.

When I was getting the washing in I heard a loud and familiar noise. It was the cranes on their way back to Africa for the winter. Then I looked across the paddock at the trees. Autumn has crept up on me without my noticing!

Thank you FG. It will all be gone when we have the first hard frost!
