Just been up to the tunnels. 4.1C was last night's minimum. Coldest this season so far. 

I HATE BEING COLD. Have I mentioned that before?

Suddenly this week ,the hostas have taken on their Autumnal orangey colouring. I think I need to make room in polytunnel for the  tenders to snuggle up for the winter. No idea how I'm going to fit everything in this winter.

See original post

 At least you have polytunnels   I have a canna and some begonias to house  

Wonky is going to have the dahlias in her shed.

Unfortunately Trump does exactly what Hitler did - he gives no facts, has no policies, but appeals to people's fears and whips up their emotions.

Im surprised and disappointed to find that someone with acknowledged emotional/mental health difficulties has been told to 'snap out of it' and called narcissistic and other unkind things on this thread.

That is not only unkind to the person concerned but could be felt to be bullying and damaging to others who have anxiety, depression, PTSD and other mental health issues, of whom we have several amongst us. 

I'm really saddened by this

Philippa if you're looking for a good yellow kniphofia, take a look at K. Percy's Pride. Pic of it on my Bressingham thread of sunday/Monday this week. Gorgeous plant.

From what I've read and heard, it appears that there were some morons who thought it was funny to try to wind the gorilla up!

Just heard Michelle Obama speaking about Trump and his attitude to women. What a brilliant speaker she is !

Good morning all 

Hosta, that seems a perfectly normal time to wake for me. I've done that all my adult life - feeding the animals and milking the goats befor getting breakfast of the rest of the family!  Maybe you're designed to be a smallholder 

Clari. There really are people who buy the old light switches and door handles etc. to restore houses to be authentically accurate to their period. I frequently used to see people buying them at antiques auctions - have a look on EBay.

There are a few in Norwich - I'd not noticed one before I came here and saw them turning that wonderful deep bronze at this time of year
