Lovely, lovely photos, Fidgetbones.

A few pages ago Sarah asked about a yellow and orange flower. I think it was a Lantana.

Very weird, Stacey, could anyone have nicked it?

Please, not snow in November. I live down a farm track 1km long. Stuck when it snows. Going to England in Nov. Don't want to have snow when travelling.

I like Verdun's jokes too.

Autum /winter weeds

I use a hoe with a short handle and a head like in this photo. I kneel on a pad and hoe them and scoop them into my plastic trug. It's always risky leaving weeds. They may be established by spring. I hoe on my knees because I'm so cack handed and clumsy doing it standing up!

The ones with white gills are usually poisonous, I wouldn't take any risks with them.

Good luck Hollie, hope it all goes well for you. When is the big day? Is it nearby or some way away?

Plumber unblocked the woodburner chimney, so that's burning merrily now, but the boiler needs a spare part. Coming back next week.

Hello all. Haven't been very well, throat, nose, cough. Feel a lot better now but still coughing.

Was -2° this morning. First frost. Then sunny. Put washing in machine then forgot to put it on line. Bother. Tried to put central heating on, didn't work. Bother again, especially as the woodburner in the middle of the house has a blocked chimney as well. It worked a month ago, but it's been so mild recently we didn't need it. Plumber here now.
