Rats, cats and bids

If you've got rats established there, rather than just the odd visitor, I'd get professional pest controllers in and sort them out properly.

I agree with Tetley - you don't like them, they don't look good so get rid!!!

You may not need to grind the stumps out - if you cut them down but leave a 4 ft trunk you can use as a lever, as the ground softens in the winter you should be able to 'rock' them out - they're quite shallow rooted. 

That'll save you money to put towards a fence and new shrubs

Rhubarb variety

I've never noticed an unpleasant aftertaste with rhubarb - I wonder whether you're picking it too late in the season?

Oooh Snoodle ... poor you .... afraid it's that time of year - all summer people go away on holiday and get new bugs and then bring them back to nursery/school to infect everyone else

 Here you are!

Good morning Chicky and DD

Coffee anyone?

Good morning all   Drizzly here and it went down to 8.8C overnight, but it's up to 10.9 and rising at the moment  ... we're off into the city later this morning - OH needs undies, socks and jeans for our holiday and he hates shopping, so lunch out with a glass of something will make it easier.  The car will be left in the underground car park at the big shopping mall, and a team of Polish lads will polish and valet it for it's holiday

I'm definitely a glass half full sort of a person - I was also raised on Pollyanna, so I can always find something good to say, whatever the disaster  

Yvie, look after that cold - you've probably picked up a virus 'cos you're a bit run down - take some echinacea or Selenium Ace or similar for your immune system.  You don't want colds at this time of year. 

I was AWOL last night 'cos I got stuck into my knitting - I'd got to the shoulder and neck shaping on the back, so there was a lot of counting to keep the pattern right - it's done now and I've started on one of the fronts

Hosta, I've just heard the forecast for the week ahead - yes we may well get some showers on Friday, but also sunny spells   and then High Pressure is going to settle in over the weekend and it said that we're in for good autumn weather - morning mists, mellow fruitfullness etc  just like Verdun promised!!!

Pat, ((hugs)) glad your grandson is happy - it's a difficult time for him, and a very important relationship - I'm sure he knows how important he is to you
