HELLO FORKERS!

Morning

Winds must have been focusing on Scotland last night - all calm here.  Will have a lazy morning and then a walk at a local NT place - lots of trees and lakes - should be nice at this time of year.

forgot to mention that I'm go to try some white daffs this year - got some Thalia and Elka for a bed at the back of the house.  Hoping they will look super sophisticated

And spurred on by pDoc's success, I will fill in my Wimbledon public ballot form today too

So lovely Artjak.  Why am I not surprised you have an eye for colour.  Might try scouring the garden tomorrow for some likely vase material.......

Didn't realise it had good autumn colour - it was bought because OH likes BIG leaves. If he had his way (which, of course, he won't) this place would look like Jurassic Park

I have been known to write things I have already done on a tdl .....just for the pleasure of crossing them off

Found Chicklet's phone buzzing the other day ....it was an alarm telling her to "check list".  I have taught her well

Giggling here - you lot are on form today

Wisley was lovely, as ever.  Fell in love with crab apple "gorgeous" (but thanks Woody and Fairy for your thoughts too ) - decided to come home and do a bit of research before purchasing a pair for the back of my flower garden.

OH bought an oak leaf hydrangea, and uncle found a daphne - so car was a bit leafy on the way home.  Also visited a heather exhibition and found that there is a specialist nursery about a mile from us - we even know his neighbour.  I have planted a few in a difficult bank this year - if they thrive, i might be paying him a visit.

footie on the telly, so time for a glass of something and a catchup on here.  Have a great evening all.

Clocks go forward tonight

Congrats to Auntie Panda - lovely news

We are promised a sunny day, but not much sign yet.  Off to Wisley for a wander - hope its suitably autumnal.

planning to spend some birthday vouchers on a crab apple - has anyone any experience of red sentinel ??

Morning MrsG.  Your son has a great Mum behind him.  You are right that you should not have to become a self taught lawyer/medic/teacher .... Hope you navigate the new ways - and it ends up being a better system.  

Hope Mr KEF's back is better this morning - back pain is horrible

Lizzie - so sad.  The poor old thing was shown kindness in her last days - .that counts for lots.

work today, then my uncle arrives this evening for a weekend stay.  He is an enthusiastic 80 something gardener, so a trip to Wisley is definitely on the cards
