I'm leaving mine in the ground to see what happens. A few years ago I sowed "Bishops Children" dahlias and most still come up each year having been left in the ground. But it is a well drained bed.

In our thoughts

I hope it doesn't spread, quite terrifying. So many victims were young

Verdun, will your garden ever be too full for new plants?

Have just been talking to son on the phone. He lives in Dordogne, as do I. He told me about the tragedy in Paris. I haven't seen the news since yesterday morning.

Chicky, I hope your OH is OK, and you too. But if they are letting him home he should be OK. It must be a difficult time while he's waiting for the next op.

Off to see the news.

Oh is still feeling bunged up in the nose and poorly. I went shopping this morning and I went to the "Resto du Coeur" the other side of town to deliver the Harvest Festival offerings from our local C of E. The Resto du Coeur (restaurant of the heart) is a charity that provides meals for the poor and homeless.

I also bought Tigger a new bed in the pet shop as I had to throw away two when he had his tummy upset, but he seems to prefer the old duvet that I gave him as a stop gap.

Planted up 3 more troughs, pansies, this afternoon and did some ironing.

It's my birthday

Happy birthday Wintersong.

Morning all. How strange, DD says there is fog, none here, we had it all day yesterday and we only live 45 mins. apart. Very cloudy here though. Forecast says sun for the weekend. My washing will just have to stay on the line until then.

OH has horrid cold so I will go to the supermarket without him.

Where is everyone?

I've been outside all afternoon, clearing away summer bedding from the pots and planting the winter and spring bedding, violets, polyanthus, daisies and pansies.

YvieStevie, I hope the scan went well and you have a proper diagnosis now.

Has no one visited any gardens since August? We went to Wyken Hall in Suffolk in September but I forgot to put it here.

Gorgeous RB.

Although we had -4° and heavy frosts a couple of time in early October which put an end to all that was tender there are a few things still struggling on, even a clematis.
