A notice on the door "Beware!  Hornets nest in shed - Pest Control called".

Youngsters are unlikely to know that it's the wrong time of year for hornets to be about.

Pdoc - I heard some interviews from Syria this morning - very hard to listen to   So hard to feel so useless ... 

As I said, we have to hang onto the good things wherever we can find them, however small  - Wonky saved a hedgehog from certain death this morning. 

I love mussels - we'll have to go to the Belgian Monk again soon  - you should bring your OH to Norwich 

So...Resurrected and Rebooted

MU  The big ash tree has suddenly dumped most of its leaves overnight, but OH has forbidden me to rake the leaves this year in case I do something to my shoulder and need physio again ... apparently I'm allowed to wheel the barrow along behind him and hold the bags open ... there have to be some perks to having had a gammy joint 

Now I really must dry my hair and go to tennis .............

Muscari parviflorum

A friend living in Cyprus has just moved house and inherited a gorgeous traditional Cypriiot garden full of wild flowers - flowering at the moment are Autumnal Grape Hyacinths - Muscari parviflorum.

I'd never heard of these but they look gorgeous - apparently they flower for quite a while - does anyone here grow these in the UK?

They're on the list here, but out of stock  

Aren't they the prettiest things?

The blue patches have spread and it's a lovely day out there - if a bit chilly - I may even hang some washing out ... 

BL - do be careful with your shoulder - although if it's like mine mucking out should be ok - it's reaching up that was the problem.

I'll be going to tennis again in half an hour - fingers crossed here too

Stinky kippers left there for a few weeks should do the trick
