I had heard lots of derogatory comments about Moneymaker - but we grew it this year and liked it - lots of flavour ( which is what its detractors complained about).

Great stile Archie.  Bekkie - looking on the web will give the phone number of your nearest hedgehog rescue centre - with winter fast approaching I would call in the experts.  Ouch MrsG - hope its getting less painful

Back from a wonderful weekend away - Beth Chattos and Hyde Hall were lovely - even at this time of year.  Will post pics on gardens visited later in the week.  Then this morning we had a lovely walk along an Estuary - blowy but sunny.  Great meals out Friday and Saturday .... this turning 50 thing might not be so bad after all.  Chicklets back at school tomorrow, but OH and I have 2 more days off - all day bike ride planned tomorrow, and Tower of London (inspired by Lily's pictures) for poppies on Tuesday.  Need to do something to work off all those calories

Ok - finally been around in daylight - so here are some dissected berries.  I also "had a sniff" - not a strong fragrance, but the vague hint of plum

 There are two or three big seeds per berry - and the seeds are nearly as big as the berry itself

Morning All

Thats a lot of daffs Steephill

No work for me today, and none til next Weds either .... a mini-hols.  Chicklets still need taking to school though, so alarm went off at usual time.  Might get out in the garden for a bit later - theres plenty of weeds out there that need tackling

Trouble on't trains ..... Means more time to stand admiring the yellow thing in the sky, which has made a welcome appearance here too. Should have brought my factor 50 with me. Enjoy your gardens - those who are free to get out there.

Morning Dove.  Still hoping for the heatwave - visiting HydeHall and Beth Chattos this weekend, and would prefer to leave the snorkelling to Fidget
