Morning peeps

Apple cake was a success - we've tested it out and there is plenty left for the weekend yourselves.

Dull here, but thankfully dry. Going to help Mr C lay some paving, and will definitely get my 100 February Gold and 50 allium christophii planted in the meadow (Clari - just a reminder for you too - my partner in (bulb planting) crime)

Beech trees are colouring up beautifully, and the acers and liquidambers are pretty special this year too.  I shall enjoy being in amongst it all for a change

Very out of character for me ......but I have just got home from work and baked a cake.  Mr C is in shock  We have FiL staying for the weekend, and a surfeit of home grown apples, so an apple tray bake is in the oven as we speak......and delicious cakey smells are filling the kitchen  I must try this domestic goddess thing more often

Can I apply to join the purple dressing gown club.....even though mine is decidely the neighbours, the postman, and even the man from the local council who wanted my vote can testify

Welcome Lizzie - hope you have a good break - and that the troubles are resolved or forgotten by the time you return.  We look set for a fine few days, so you can make the most of the Norfolk countryside.  Colours are beautiful at the moment.

Looking forward to a weekend in the garden train trips for a change

But first, one more day of mining salt required.

See you later peeps 🌞😜🌞🌺🌺🌸🌷

Morning Joyce and Hollie

Enjoy your daughter's visit Joyce - hope she earns her free plants

Only another couple of pitch black mornings til the clocks go back - then we get a short respite.  Its dark by the time I get home now anyway, so the change at the other end of the day won't bother me so much - except at the weekends
