One of the Euonymus ... possibly E. alatus.. aka Spindle tree ... the seedcases are red with orange fruits inside.  Usually the leaves have brilliant autumn colour.

Pdoc ... afraid that Momentum has too many similarities with the SWP for me to have any time for them.

Pat ... lovely bookmark   Although my knee was pulled about quite a bit it was very expertly done and I'm feeling no ill effects thank goodness.  

Trying hard to come up with a completely metal-free outfit for this afternoon .........
