I've been weeding

Beginning to make real progress now - so satisfying to see a nice clean border.  About another three weekends and I will have done one completely.  But what a beautiful day - love sunny autumn days

 Just had a bath - could hardly move my muscles ached so much last  Monday - so hope this does the trick

My sad Rosemary plant :(

It looks fine to me - they lose a few leaves in the autumn, even though they are evergreen. I'd leave it til spring and then pot up into compost mixed with grit - they like it really free draining so your expandable compost might not be ideal. I would also put i somewhere where it is going to stay quite dry for the winter - GH or coldframe, or in the shelter of a housewall - or even rig up some sort of cover with some old bricks and a plank !

Mrs G - made me lol

We have blue skies here- pretty sure they are heading your way Dove.  

Time for another cuppa, then the weeding begins.  Will watch the cenotaph on the TV this morning too.

Braved the wind and the rain to get my tulips planted (weekend gardeners can't afford to be fair weather gardeners) - and then came back in to a house that smells of Christmas.  Both the cake and the pudding are doing their thing 

Top jobs for the weekend

Morning all - Christmas Puddings are steaming away - only 7 1/2 hours to go
Now off to get my hair cut, then back to make the C cake, and hopefully still have time to plant up my tulip pots before the sun sets.

Meant to be going to torchlit procession and fireworks tonight, but forecast for later is yukk - so we will see.

Hope Panda has a good weekend away ( with her bingo winnings in her pocket ) - and good to see you OL
