Had a lovely chat with Wonky earlier - she had a good last day and knows that all her hard work was appreciated 

Japanese anenome / peony

I leave my Japanese anemones as they are for the winter and cut them hard back in the spring.  Their foliage remains for quite a while providing interest in the garden for the winter and also providing a bit of cover and protection for the smaller plants and of course, for the wildlife.

I find the peonies die down when they are ready - I just remove the dead leaves when they're brown and withered.

Wonky - glad you're having a lovely last day - nice presents~!!! 

House gleaming and ragu simmering on the hob for bolognese for supper.

Speaking of auto-corrections - some years ago I was proof-reading  a  music festival programme and discovered that Kathleen Ferrier had been replaced by Kathleen Ferrari  -  I think she'd probably have been quite amused by that 

Name that poo!!

Yes, some animal/s  has/have eaten too much of something that has disagreed with him/her/them.  

From the shape the grey ones could be the result of a hedgehog having eaten too much of something
