Beautiful LillyPilly.  Especially love the rose on that archway ... just smothered in flowers

Looks fab DD - no wonder you're exhausted - thats a big area to clear  And now, onwards and upwards.

Good luck to those with house moves on the cards (Beau and mini-Matty) - the whole thing is a very stressful experience that i hope i never have to repeat.

Love the jacket Dove - will look great with the jade - have a lovely celebration with them.  Mr Chicky and I celebrate 20 years next week - 60 years is something else

I convince myself I like weeding by pretending I am harvesting a crop .... for the compost heap (although don't put the perennial nasties on there)

Morning Dove.  Did you know there is now a gizmo you can get that lets you turn your heating on and off remotely from an app on your phone?  Gives you the ability to do it from anywhere in the world.  Research has shown that the most common place people use it from is their bed.  Perhaps not quite what the inventor had in mind

Great tree choices MrsG - liquidambers are one of my favourites, specially at this time of year.  Apart from anything else I just love their name.  We need pics once they are in

Due some sunshine today, after yesterday's squalls.  Must get out there at lunchtime to make the most of it.  Am taking my free bulb token with me, so will go to GC and make my choice .... will it be crocus, or wild tulip, or fritillary, or iris....decisions, decisions .....

Wow !! No wonder its warmer than here.  Jealous of your heliotrope - have seen it growing at Wisley (southeast england) but never given it a go myself - its meant to have a lovely scent.

End of the season thoughts

Those glads are spectacular Victoria - like the small flowered aster behind them too  Lovely photo of the cat leaving the scene too

Morning all

Why do weekends fly by

Got a midweek talk by Cleve West to look forward to this week - so i'll get some garden time in that way.

Enjoy yourselves, whatever you are up to
