Agree with Verdun - a great man, who changed so many lives. Legend is an overused word, but in this case it's appropriate

Morning Dove - feels like old times 

Turkey family here - local butcher gets them from a farm in Kent, and we have never had a bad one.  We never seem to have a problem getting through any leftovers

Hope your knee is on the mend.

Morning Stacey and those yet to arrive.

Hope the knee is feeling better this morning Dove - buses should come with a elf an safety warning ( or stick to the aisle seat).  And hope the colour works in the daylight fidget.

looks like a spell of arctic weather on the way - need it to convince me it is actually December.

Morning all - another dark morning, another week.  But only three more weeks til the days start getting longer again

Our big garden excitement this week is the arrival of some new trees - 3x liquidamber and somer acers (bloodgood and a yellow/orange one).  We are going for a boundary planting of autumn colour

OH spent yesterday digging holes and then filling them back in to keep them cosy.

Well apart from the shrew, there were some lovely iris/crocus affairs, and some mini nerines.  I took photos for you - so i suppose i will have to detach my rear from the sofa and go upload them for you ...... Might take some time ......
