I'll have to come back later to see Fairygirl's photos as my Internet is sooo slow this morning. We stayed in Taynuilt by Loch Etive years ago on a family holiday and watched Highland games in Oban on a glorious warm summer's day.


aym, you said you like Norfolk, do you live there? OH has a cottage in South Norfolk, but it's not by the sea.

Well done DD, great news.


About to cook Pad Thai - whatever that is! Has chicken and prawns. Bought sauce in SM.

I hope you manage to enjoy your anniversary, Pat. It sounds so exotic negotiating kangaroos and wombats on the road! Deer and wild boar here.


Good luck with the Tearoom and the Maire, DD. Is there any sun near you? You could wear sunglasses.


We've been shopping and picked up my pullovers from M & S. They all fitted!

Good heavens Papi Jo, your flowers are amazing! I have Orkney Cherry, about 4 years old, stopped flowering in August and is only about 1 foot wide.

That's a gorgeous anemone. Does it need staking? I have an ordinary pink one and it always falls over if not securely tied up.

Morning all.


Have a happy anniversary the Fidgets.


Oh dear DD, maybe you've got something in it. Hope they sort it.


We are going to supermarket, need butter and milk and loo rolls. But first will pick up my M & S order of winter pullovers from the paper shop. The delivery people can never find my house.


Mild frost again -2°

Can you Identify this Jasmine & Share any tips?

That's encouraging.


My J. Polyanthum survived the winter outside the kitchen wall in a pot. It's twined itself all over the grill on the larder window. But it was a mild winter. Think I may re-pot it and leave it there as it's got too big to bring in.

I thought "Wild Swans" was a great book, really interesting. There are parts of the world I know nothing about. I enjoyed "City of Joy" and "Geisha" too.

Strictly is back!

I agree with Doghouse and Obelixx about Tameka. But I find Judge Rinder very irritating.

Glad you enjoyed your day Dove. Look forward to the pictures. I haven't seen Bressingham this late in the year.


I've cut down some finished perennials, lots more to do.


Doing sea bass with homegrown veg from the freezer, incl. broad beans, love them.
