Lesley, our tree is planned to come down on 20th Nov if I remember correctly, with the stump grinding a couple of weeks later.  I think Hefty was just using that spot as an occasional summer residence - he seems to have abandoned it now so I've reconstructed the pile of twigs, loggs and leaves in another dry and sheltered corner so he can use that if he chooses.  However neighbours have some thick hedgerows and undergrowth so he's not short of choices.

Afraid you'll still have to dig the roots up, but it'll be easier when they're dead.

Things must be slowing down a bit, even in Cornish gardens, if Verdun's got time to post jokes

So where's my coffee Hosta - whoever's up first has to make it?

Good morning all

You see, even if I don't have to get up early, I do   Had to struggle to stay awake for Bake-Off   and had to have coffee to manage to stay awake for the last of Dr Foster - anyone else watched that?

I love tripe and stuffed heart - still make it now sometimes just for me - OH not keen.  I'm not keen on Syrup of Figs though, but we were dosed with it regularly.
