Collect some seeds from wild docks and scatter them where you want them - they'll germinate quite happily and next year you'll be asking us how to get rid of them.

Trip to Cambridge University Botanical Garden 11th October

You may not have had any rain Nut, but as soon as we arrived in Norfolk we had the most amazing thunder and lightning storm and Snoodle and I got soaked when walking the few hundred yards from the station to her home.  As I drove back to my house the traffic lights on the junction off the A47 had blown and the police were struggling in the dark and  the torrential rain to sort the traffic out.  Now I'm home and dry and in my jimjams on the sofa.  OH had cooked me a lovely curry and a bottle of Sauv. Blanc was chilling

Apart from that storm it's been a glorious day - wall to wall sunshine  - loved the Bot. Gardens in the autumn sunshine.  I've taken loads of photos - I'll get them uploaded very soon - but at the moment I'm dozing on the sofa with Dr Who

HELLO FORKERS!

Hope you both enjoy your walk Verdun - labs and their tummies eh?!

KEF - the pre-made commercial hog house does seem a bit small compared with Hefty, we're stacking up prunings and spent bean haulms etc in the quiet corners to provide larger lairs if needed

Right, I'm off to meet up with Snoodle and get on the train - have a good day folks!

As Bob says - just part of Nature - no need to panic or go spending vast sums of money on lawn treatment.

Mike, there's a well-known saying which goes:

 

Dance like there's nobody watching,

Love like you'll never be hurt

Sing like there's nobody listening

And live like it's heaven on earth.


William W. Purkey - professor emeritus of counselor education at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro and co-founder of The International Alliance for Invitational Education®. A noted author, researcher, speaker, and leader, Purkey has authored nearly 100 articles and more than a dozen books.    

 

Many of us were brought up by people with Victorian attitudes who worried all the time about what other people thought.  That way lies misery.   Follow the advice above and be yourself and don't worry about whether other people are judging you. What does it matter what anyone else thinks?

HELLO FORKERS!

Good  morning all   There's a beautiful moon with a halo out there - I think that presages rain, but of course, it's an Old Wives' Tale isn't it?  Not meterorological observation - fingers crossed!

I spent some time yesterday evening watching our Hefty Hedgehog munching through his bowl of supper on our garden doorstep - he certainly is a chunky chap (if he's a boy, that is )

For some reason I can't zoom in on the first ones, but the fourth pic is a Rowan aka Mountain Ash, and the fifth and sixth are Euonymus europaeus aka Spindle. 

Harvested this today.

Those are brilliant pumpkins Rusty!  Fantastic!  Looking forward to seeing the newspaper article.

Did I detect a slight East Anglian accent?
