HELLO FORKERS! September Edition

Lovely day garden visiting  Stockton Bury was my favourite - surprises round every corner, but still felt like a cohesive whole.  Now time for a quick snooze (lots of driving) and then some drinks and dinner.  Luckily the weather held here all day - we must be far enough south to miss the grotty bits.  Can see Welsh hills on the horizon ......feels like a long way from home

One more sleep til my Great Garden Adventure begins.  Other treats on the list are Westonbury Water Garden, Hampton Court (the herfordshire one) and Stockton Bury, along with a couple of yellow book ones.  Forecast is a bit changeable, but fingers crossed the showers will miss us.  Only one other person in my car, leaving plenty of room for sweeties - thanks for the warning Ob

Early start tomoz, so unlikely to pop in to say hello - so have a good weekend everyone

Morning peeps๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒ„

Theatre was great - funny, touching, thought provoking and superbly acted .....can't ask for much more than that

Starting to look forward to the weekend already (well we're half way thru the week, so why not?)......going to Herefordshire with a group of friends on a garden visiting weekend.  Loads planned,will take lots of pics for the other thread.  One I am most looking forward to is the Picton garden with all their asters......should be a good time of year to visit.

But got to get through Thursday and Friday at the saltmines first.  Best get going

Feeling for Lizzie - hope you find someone to stay with you, or go on a little hols yourself .....maybe visit some of the grandchildren?

Off to the theatre tonight๐ŸŽญ๐ŸŽญ๐ŸŽญ Going to a tiny theatre where the audience surround the action - makes for quite an intense experience But normally a memorable one.

Too dark to pick raspberries, so raisins on my porridge .......sadness. Can we do summer all over again please
