Trip to Cambridge University Botanical Garden 11th October

Really lovely pix. I love the reflections too - water's stunning when it's clear and glassy like that.  I must admit the 'stepping stones' are my favourite, but I may have been tempted to just gently nudge nut on that one...

Why am I so special,to,the forum?

Well - it's my superior jokes Verd. They're much better than yours. Makes me indispensable.

and my modesty of course...

Yvie....senior moment... 

I have those too - even though I'm only 27. 

You could stick the violas on the seed swap thread

Panda - we think KEF's been on the ouzo gravy already 

You're  a very good uncle Verd. I don't even like having to pick daughter up from work at night  -and that's usually just after nine! 

Bake off again

Ahh - but you're a man Alan. Us wimmin have been ogling Mr H for ages

Very funny Lesley... I bet there's none in the bit where the extension will go! 

I think KEF's already had the gravy - that's why she's not on here yet 

Dove - that must have been nearly a whole cake between two! 

I may even put washing out as it's getting sunny. Not sure I can manage any more slab shifting/digging etc though. Might be plant moving and other jobs which are getting sidelined just now.

More tea first though

Morning OL - lovely to see you again. We wouldn't think you were a fraud. 

Glad you're busy and hope all is going well  

chicky - it might have been easier to just create another bed and re gravel the rest but I wanted some grass.  Re the whirly - it was one of those fittings that just gets pushed into the ground. The previous owner had done that. Looked fine till you put washing on it...

Sun is trying to come out now

I don't understand the problem. 

He used a bulb plant bulbs. I believe he also uses a dig. Who'd have thought...

Morning all. Foggy and chilly here. The birds had their woolly jumpers on when I went out to feed them. Lots of lovely spidery webs with diamonds on them 

Glad the TWIGS had a lovely day. Pix are great. Cakes are big. 

Have a good day BL and lily. Not sure what I'm doing today but shoulders are very sore with digging and then lifting out the 'whirly' (which is concreted into a bucket) to move it  I'm sure some tea and toast will help
