HELLO FORKERS!

Just been catching up. An awful lot of chat about food, just when I've had the day of under 500 calories on this new way of eating that people say helps make you lose weight. Hungry. Would love cake, hot chocolate, scones and cream.

Suddenly started pouring with rain. Bedtime, night all.

Good morning all. (The lazy way of saying it, I don't miss anyone out!)

2° here, no frost. Going to supermarket.

Yesterday I actually got round to weeding and digging up of annuals to make room for tulips and alliums. Today rain is forecast.

WHERE?

If you want to find something try typing a key word in the box at the very top of the page with "search this site" and a magnifying glass on it. Another page will appear with a similar box on the left with "keyword" on it. I just tried using the word "camera" and it took me to camera-corner that Dove has just shown you.

Actually did some gardening today! Removed annuals and weeds from cherry tree bed so now it's ready to be planted with tulips. But it did rain on me before I'd finished.

That blue one with the bee in it is phacelia which is good for green manure which you dig into the earth. The flowers last a long time in a vase too.

This isn't really a garden, but as it's November we thought we'd visit the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum instead, which was very interesting, although hardly anyone was there on such a chilly day! The new programme "Tudor Monastery Garden" was filmed there.

And the beds looked lovely in Anne Hathaways cottage garden, although it had just rained.

Even if the photos are just snapshots I enjoy looking at them months later and seeing how it was. This, of a garden in Stratford-upon-Avon, looks really bright now in November, it was July 2011. Oh bother, the oak tree say "service unavailable". Will try again in a new post.

Morning all. Cold, 3°, and gloomy. But the trees are looking pretty in their autumn dresses.
