Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Sometimes talking about things won't make it any better and might make it worse.  I imagine that your mother feels that if you talk about it with her she might have to take sides, and she doesn't want to do that. 

Sometimes in families things happen or are said that upset us.  We just have to  agree to disagree about that particular thing and move on.  It doesn't mean that you don't love each other.

Identification of these Pumpkins/Squash

Doesn't look like Crown Prince to me - the skin of Crown Prince I know is smooth and shiny and an almost steely blue/grey.

I don't recognise any of the pumpkins in the photos.  Sorry.

Morning Chicky   No pumpkin carving here - OH usually carves some for the farm shop display, but all their delivery of pumpkins sold out within the first couple of days!  They've tried to get some more, but no luck .....

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
