Morning all

Thanks for your thoughts Wonky (and all you other lovely peeps) ....Mr C is improving in leaps and bounds.  Back behind the wheel of a car, and gradually extending our lunchtime walks .....not quite Fairy level yet, as we have to keep on the flat and are restricted to 30 mins, but nevertheless progressing.  Most importantly he has his spirits back ......which makes me very happy too

Loved autumnwatch this year ....will miss having something good to watch on the telly now.

Off out for a meal with friends tonight, leaving littlest Chicklet in charge (I'm not going far) ..... will be nice to get out for a bit.

Enjoy Friday, one and all

Ours are definitely the carving type - have no idea what they taste like But the Chicklets have fun carving, and OH has fun growing them

I'll go out and check tomorrow David - packet is in the greenhouse and its cold, dark, wet and windy out there.  But from memory it was a Mr Fothergill pack that the one with the cartoon of a smiley man with a hat on???

So pleased it has all worked out Yvie, but what a stressful time for all.  Lovely that your Nana skills will soon be even more in demand. Had been wondering where you were - so welcome back.

Happy Anniversary Mr and Mrs KEF .  Autumn weddings and anniversaries are the best - you don't expect much, but when the sun does shine its magic.  In the summer you feel cheated if you don't get a fine day.  Have a lovely evening snuggled in front of the fire (something else you can't do in June)

Topbird - I did that with alliums last year and they were fine.  I did 6 pots - 2 were planted out as soon as their noses began to show growth, the others got left, and were only planted when they had buds.  The first two had much better flowers and looked stronger all round if I did it again I'd plant them out earlier rather than later.  Mine were purple sensation.

Your niece is going through it Verdun ...poor thing.  Hope she starts to feel more comfortable soon.
