Have a lovely day, Fairy.

Have actually done some weeding in the veg garden and removed four barrows of dung from horse shelter, lots more to do for both.

7° is the hottest it's been today, bitter wind, cloudy now, washing not properly dry.

Plant advice

I put mine in a cold frame that OH gave me, wasn't expensive. It's on the kitchen terrace by the wall of the house.

Was -2° with a frost this morning. Only 5° now with a biting wind. This is Dordogne and it's only October!

I hate snow as I can't get up the drive. I prefer mild, wet days.

Morning all.

Congratulations and welcome back Wintersong.

How dare you Verdun! I heard that! Women drivers have fewer accidents than men.

First frost this morning -2°

But you won't be able to show it off, you'll have to wear February clothes!

When to plant spring bulbs?

I never plant tulips before November, risk of tulip fire. But daffodils can be started earlier if you want to.

Agree with Nut about the clocks. I rather like a cosy evening in front of the woodburner. Don't like snow and cold winds. Like the excitement of the first snowdrops poking through.

SgLily thank you for pointing me in the direction of Fidget's lovely wedding photos

I went to see DD this afternoon, we had a nice long chat. Her garden is still looking lovely and she gave me a bag of walnuts and an apple. The apple was for my horse, Lena, who I've lent to a 16yr old girl and now lives on the way home from DD.
