Morning all.

It's been her computer before, flumpy. She does have a large family to keep an eye on her. I hope she's OK.

Man is cutting creeper of the house, I'm not good with ladders, nor is OH. Considering the 3 months of drought, I'm not sure why it's grown so much this year.

I must go and muck out the field shelter. Quite a heavy job and shoulder is still playing up.

Spouse here has eaten and is asleep on the sofa watching Lucy Worsley.

Day has been filled with rather dull stuff, committee meeting, supermarket, ironing.

When we first moved to France our house was a converted water mill. We had water voles in the banks of the stream and a pair of muskrats who lived under the house. The stream ran under the house with a mill pool by the kitchen terrace. But I don't think we had ragondin. I wouldn't have liked to eat any of them, they were cute.

Morning all.
Strictly speaking "got" is not good grammar and is usually unnecessary. I have blue eyes - no need for "got". I became old.  Not sure about I got out of bed! It's "have got" that shouldn't really be used, but in the last 50 years has become part of the English language.

Anyway, I hope you find a solution DD!

Autumn is really underway now but I have pansies and violas planted for the spring.

Any ideas what to do with this patch?

It's probably too late now, Philip, this thread dates from July.

I have had dogs and daffodils. My dogs have lived long and not touched the daffodils.

It's so cloudy here I don't think we'll see the supermoon. Bit chilly too, was only 7° this afternoon while I was gardening.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

My dahlias are in the ground too, apart from 20 that I grew from seed and planted in 2 troughs. I dug them up today, now drying off upside down. They had developed good tubers. I've added more compost to the troughs and planted bellis daisies for the spring. I've emptied 2 more troughs of bedding begonias but can't plant the pansies yet because I've run out of potting compost.
