Well, I'm a woman and I'm brilliant at navigation - whereas my male OH has no sense of direction at all but has memorised the Tube map

Maybe it's a this year's young cuckoo from Northern Europe stopping over - it seems they usually do that in Eastern Europe, but this year has had some odd weather conditions which may have affected things.  This article is interesting

I'd report it to the RSPB if I were you.

Just started to dig up my Cannas, in some ways I find it rather sad that another season is coming to an end, but it is also nice to start planning for next year, and how the garden will be the "best ever."

Also starting to clear summer bedding from the pots, ready for tulips.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

OH has deconstructed my big pot of Black Eyed Susan and replaced it with the pot I planted with the yellow phormium and heucheras and orange violas - it looks really good on the terracotta tiles of the front porch.

Now I've got another big empty container ...............
