KEF - you're a hero  The GPs sound quite a responsibility

Welcome home Yvie and Lesley .....hope you get some time in your gardens this weekend.

School friends left for home - had a lovely afternoon catching up, and have promised not to leave it a decade before we do it again.

torrential rain gave way to glorious evening here too - about to go out on my bike for a spin

Aphids on my sweet peas

I had a problem with aphids on my sweetpeas last year - hung up a birdfeeder, and within a week they were gone.  Those blue/great/coal tits did a fantastic job

Ring stakes for Rudbeckia

I grow goldsturm, indian summer, cherry brandy and rustic dwarves .....have never needed a stake. 

Primrose - i grow from seed every year, and will be putting mine out in a couple of weeks (once I have got round to clearing the forget-me-not forest).  The slugs like them when they are young, but apart from that they are pretty tough for me.

Winter - don't think I'd be able to pass one of today's driving tests.  Its the "hazard perception" quiz that gets me every time.  Whats wrong with being aware of lampposts and pillar boxes as potential threats to your well being

 Just had to google Millenium Falcon ....sci fi not my strong point .....used to hide behind the sofa for Dr Who and Star Trek, and never really got over it

Morning DD - seems I wasn't first after all

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all  Didn't expect to be first this morning - had a mini lie-in on account of the fact that I don't have to get in the car (wfh this morning, so the commute involves a short trip down the stairs)

Got this afternoon off as some old school friends are coming over - we keep in touch by letters in birthday/christmas cards, but haven't seen either for about a decade

Do I get a prize for the earliest use of the word Ch****mas this year ????

Thats the trouble Joybell - this thread is disastrous for my bank balance.  Thankfully I already have the President and Warsaw Nike .....but nowhere near flowering yet.  Yours are looking wonderful, so the anticipation is building.

such a cute pic of Flynn
