Good morning all  

Well, it's damp, drear and dark here so far this morning and the trees are dripping into the pond.  Last night's temp stayed above 10C and this morning it's already 13.7C almost up to yesterday's high of 13.9C! 

A noise outside woke me early - I thought it was foxes at the bins as the bins are all out, but when I looked there was nothing .... but I was wide awake!  So here I am.

Gg, that's looking good

Guess the number of beans in a jar?   £1 a go. Prize £10  or maybe something else.

Good news Verdun

Yvie, know what you mean, but take care of yourself. Don't want that cold getting worse.

Punkdoc, enjoy your evening out, and everyone else - put your feet up and watch Autumnwatch - Fairygirl will do the washing up 'cos she does't like AW.

Oh, by the way, I think Hefty is definitely sleeping in our garden during the daytime now, he was on the terrace eating his supper at 5.50pm this evening - the earliest he's ever visited - that means we must be the first garden on his evening walkabout

Spring Bulbs

Spring bulbs often make an early start in the aurumn, especially if it's mild.  They'll stop growing when the weather cools down and start again in the spring.  Absolutely nothing to worry about.

It sounds as if you'l have a lovely show in the spring.  Come back and post a photo for us then

I'd give it a go.  Dig it with a large rootball and treat it gently.  After all, if you leave it outside you're bound to lose it to the frost.  This way at least it has a chance.  Good luck
