HELLO FORKERS!

Morning Bekkie .  You need to invest in an oven with a timer to cook OH's chicken itself.

Arch sounds great Panda - looking forward to pics - things are always special when someone makes them for you.  Envious of the tree too - did you see the avenue of them at East Ruston?

Work for me today - but doesn't look like I am missing a garden day.  Can we have some warmth back please ? Fingers crossed for that Indian Summer

Great thread - the "places I must visit" list keeps getting longer

Lots of new plants to learn about

I agree the first one is a grevllilia - we had one here when we moved in and I took a sprig to Wisley for an ID.  That was in the days before I discovered the Forum

Lzzie - I remembered you were making a salad thingy because one of the Chicklets once came home from school cookery with a request to provide the ingredients for a tabuleh (?) salad .  Took much searching down the supermarket aisles that week for me to be able to oblige.  Who knew tabuleh  was a rice thing ?? I spent hours looking for something green in the fruit and veg section.  In my day school cookery was about making inedible bread rolls and scrambled egg

What's the star in your garden right now

No orangey roses here yet, as I can't work out what to grow with them, but every year I fall in love with one called "summer song" on the David Austen stands at Chelsea and HC.

Hope your salad thing went down well Lizzie.

Funny how Fidget and Yvie so nearly met.  Fidget obviously left the snorkel at home today though.

Had a lazy day here - some deadheading but nothing else.  Still picking bunches of sweetpeas - they seem to have had a good long season this year.  First Autumn raspberries are yum - never grown them before.  And about another day or so and all the Victoria plums will be ready (at once).  One of those days to wander and enjoy, rather than graft
