Good morning all  G'day Pat  Welcome aboard to The Beanpole 

Mug of coffee being taken here  in bed peering out at the foggy morning. 

Its going to get colder from tomorrow - I need to move the canna and other tender plants NOW!  Or at least, when I've had a few more mugs of coffee ...

Wonky  Have a brilliant day (( hugs))

Obelixx  If I'd known you'd got some Darjeeling you could have chucked some over this way - it's my tea of choice and the only tea Wonky drinks - however I drink tea so rarely that I'd not noticed we'd run out (OH drinks PG) and Earl Grey was the only option - I only let it infuse for a moment - my tea has to be really pale.  

Wonky, hope tomorrow goes really well (hugs))  Do you know what you'll be doing? 

Those blowsy, shapeless things.....

Star Child and the Honka types are gorgeous ... and I just love the smell of dahlia foliage - it's the smell of autumn and allotments and conjures up memories of buying a bunch of dahlias from a table by someone's garden gate 

I love the smell of chrysanthemums too, for the same reason.

I know I'm a coffee drinker, but very very occasionally I need a cup of tea - anyone for a cup of Earl Grey and a slice of fruitcake folks?

Iamweedy   There is a sun - I saw it earlier - but there's so much low cloud and mist it looked like the moon - otherwise just grey and damp here too.  OH was going to mow the grass, but I think that's been postponed ........

Ir*ning has been done and Cauli Cheese eaten - I foresee an afternoon with my feet up and the knitting on my lap   Maybe a bit of book reading too ......... don't let me anywhere near a gardening catalogue folks ... and that thread about what we want for C'mas is stirring up all sorts of unnecessary thoughts ...

You'll have to share Wonky's beef and dumplings Joyce, there's not a lot on a pheasant and there's got to be enough left for pasties tomorrow, not to mention making stock for some soup later in the week ... 

We're back home - leftover cauliflower cheese from Friday heating though in the oven for lunch and a few bits of ir*ning to do until it's ready ...
