HELLO FORKERS!

Hope you both enjoy your walk Verdun - labs and their tummies eh?!

KEF - the pre-made commercial hog house does seem a bit small compared with Hefty, we're stacking up prunings and spent bean haulms etc in the quiet corners to provide larger lairs if needed

Right, I'm off to meet up with Snoodle and get on the train - have a good day folks!

As Bob says - just part of Nature - no need to panic or go spending vast sums of money on lawn treatment.

Mike, there's a well-known saying which goes:

 

Dance like there's nobody watching,

Love like you'll never be hurt

Sing like there's nobody listening

And live like it's heaven on earth.

A noted author, researcher, speaker, and leader, Purkey has authored nearly 100 articles and more than a dozen books.    

 

Many of us were brought up by people with Victorian attitudes who worried all the time about what other people thought.  That way lies misery.   Follow the advice above and be yourself and don't worry about whether other people are judging you. What does it matter what anyone else thinks?

Good  morning all   There's a beautiful moon with a halo out there - I think that presages rain, but of course, it's an Old Wives' Tale isn't it?  Not meterorological observation - fingers crossed!

I spent some time yesterday evening watching our Hefty Hedgehog munching through his bowl of supper on our garden doorstep - he certainly is a chunky chap (if he's a boy, that is )

For some reason I can't zoom in on the first ones, but the fourth pic is a Rowan aka Mountain Ash, and the fifth and sixth are Euonymus europaeus aka Spindle. 

Harvested this today.

Those are brilliant pumpkins Rusty!  Fantastic!  Looking forward to seeing the newspaper article.

Did I detect a slight East Anglian accent?

I can't get the fingernails to look clean. Is that going to embarrass anyone?

Euonymous europaeus Red Cascade is very happy on shallow chalky soil.  It's an elegant small tree with the most attractive fruits and really good autumn colour.

And it's a UK native too so good for wildlife

David posted this and then realised that if you're ignoring him you won't be able to read it, so I've cut and pasted it here

"...Click on 'My settings' (top right of the page) Scroll down to 'Members I am ignoring'....you'll probably see my name in the box. All you need to do is remove it."
