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.

Hi all! Balcony garden, complete beginner!

Strawberries grow well in pots and are quite attractive and if you like runner beans there is a dwarf one to grow in pots which has very pretty red and white flowers, called Hestia.

I grow them. Good flavour, early, prolific, but once they are over that is it for that year. So I grow repeat varieties too.

Thanks, Dove. BIL is starting to regain consciousness and trying to ask where he is. Not on dialysis any more, kidneys seem to have recovered. But they don't know yet how much damage was caused by the lack of blood.
