Joyce it's too dark to sit on the terrace after supper so flolloping is all there is to do 

DD all GW wearers of dressing gowns can be members of the Purple Dressing Gown Club, even if they're not actually purple! the colour is a state of mind

Flolliped on the sofa stuffed with spag bol.  

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

Posted: 27/10/2016 at 18:53

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- some years ago I was proof-reading  a  music festival programme and discovered that Kathleen Ferrier had been replaced by Kathleen Ferrari  -  I think she'd probably have been quite amused by that 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