Hatches battened here too

Two dumpy builders sacks filled with leaves for 2018's leaf mould.  No wonder us gardeners are optimists. And 30 foxgloves now in the ground - better than having their roots frozen in pots.

Fire now lit.....time to settle down with a good book πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š

Memories of the past

Think it was called White Horses - still remember that opening sequence. Loved the Black Beauty theme tune too.  And Daktari

Good for you DD - you'll do a marvellous job  Good way of getting to know lots of people in slightly different circumstances too.

Love the pictures Pat - are they the ones sometimes called Ghost Gums?

Garden beckons today. Mr C is taking both the Dads to a football match in Southampton, so I am home alone.  Going to collect leaves and plant out some foxgloves  will need to wrap up warm❄️❄️❄️

my GW calendar arrived too  it adorns my desk at work.  That, and my ever-flowering streptocarpus, and my pen holder in the shape of a pair of wellies, are clues to my alter-ego

At school, or at work.  Sometimes at home too, but then the torch is to cope in frequent power cuts.  Its what made Nokia the brand leader in India and Africa a few years ago .....although they have probably lost that accolade now.

One of the reasons mobile phones first had torches built in to them was that most of their users did not have electricity at home.  It was such a popular idea that it soon became standard even for those of us who are blessed with all mod cons.  The world develops in mysterious ways.

Morning  Made it through another week

Have a wonderful holiday Hosta - hope you get lots and lots of sunshine (and no Russian neighbours) - pop in with some pics to make us jealous every now and then β˜€οΈπŸ“ΈπŸŒžπŸ“Έ

And enjoy your trip too Lizzie.

Well done on starting the C-shopping GWRS.  Is your allotment put to bed now?

Our landrover (very old, but essential for getting us out if it snows .....we live in a ravine) is on its last legs, so Mr C is popping over to Colchester this afternoon to check out a new one.  Hope its worth the trip, or he will be grumpy.

Morning all

Lizzies ponies popping round to say hello made me smile  Glad they did not go further afield.

Hoping its a nice day out there - can't see yet - want to march to Windsor at lunchtime, and that is always nicer in the dry🌀🌀🌀
