HELLO FORKERS!

Morning

Just been to google something (other search engines are available) and the logo tells me that it is the first day of Autumn.  Trees still pretty green here, so will remain in denial for a few more weeks.

So glad Pa was found safe and sound - what a nightmare few hours for you all.

Morning.  Dark when the alarm went off this morning .... But have just been out picking raspberries for my breakfast regardless .... which still makes it technically summer, doesn't it.

hope all have a good week - esp OL and OH, as they start their new Venture.

Great photos Liri - and what a transformation

Hope GD gets some sleep Yvie - poor thing.  On cracked chimney pots - i plant mine up with plastic pots that i slot in the top of the chimney - don't think a crack would hurt doing it that way.

night all

Littlest chicklet had the hand/foot/mouth thing when she was five - horrible, horrible illness.  her mouth was so sore all she could eat was soggy weetabix and mashed potato and gravy.  Hope your GD picks up soon Yvie.

nice day out, but lots of traffic on way home, so am feeling a bit jaded.  And also a bit concerned that my w/end seems to have disappeared so quickly ..... does someone speed up the Sat and Sun hours??

Lovely here.  Off to the New Forest for lunch with my Dad and sisters, and a bit of a walk afterwards.

Garden not getting much of a look in this weekend

Home now.....SB poured

OL, Fairy ... Think we are all at a similar stage, lovely in many ways, poignant in others.  But lovely to hear from Liri and others who have been there too.

Good luck with the new business - all v exciting, but bound to be a bit daunting too.  But you are throwing your hearts into it, and deserve every success

What's the star in your garden right now

Thanks for the aconitum tips Verd - will keep an eye on the moisture levels next year. Mine are Bressingham blues - think they are an August variety
