Hallowe'en Party 31 Oct in The Log Cabin, Verdun's Garden

Sounds like a plan KEF - at least thats my costume sorted

 I do have very tiny feet, but I'm afraid thats where the similarities end (ie not often found washing a floor)

I have double booked, and have theatre tickets for tomorrow.  I'll be along later, so could someone put these out to line the path?  (The chicklets have been very industrious with their Dad's bumper crop)

We have plenty here this year.  Have recently become a fan of toasted pumpkin seeds as a snack, and was going to save some.  But Mr Google has just informed me that the edible ones come from a different sort of Pumpkin.  So that explains why the ones in the packs are green, and the ones in my pumpkins are white.  Self sufficiency remains just that little bit out of reach.  Which means I'd better go earn something to pay the grocery bill......see you later gardening peeps

Morning Dove, and those to come.  Thanks for reminding me - our bins need to go out this morning too, and i forgot last night.  Not peeked out yet, but its got to be better than yesterday's mizzly drizzle.

first pumpkin carved last night ....Stacey, if you're looking in, we're thinking of you

Love Hefty's story  Never seen one here - plenty of piles of wood and sticks if one ever wants to come and stay.  We have badgers though - and they seem not to co-exist very well.

Feeling very jealous of all you peeps that are making progress in your gardens.  Mine is a mat of weeds, and can't remember the last time I was able to get out there.  Nothing on this Sat, so fingers crossed for a fine day so that operation weedclear can begin (sounds like a herbicide, but actually will be me and a hand fork).

looking forward to the pics of woody's new house

How about some monsteroni soup?

have to go to bed now - my head hurts dreaming up all this stuff - don't know how Verd does it

Can you help identify this plant (v. 2) ?

The flower spike looks like a phlomis, but not sure about the leaves - are they the same plant?
