Yum yum... that'll do me nicely with my cuppa before I collect daughter from work and then get to bed. 

Glad you had another productive day chicky.

Yum yum - it slid nicely into my mouth chicky....

My fairy cakes were lovely - might have to get fairylet to make more. Perhaps for my un-birthday.....

Rowan shedding leaves

This is an old thread Anne. The OP asked the question over three years ago, in August  2013 

Hopefully the tree recovered. Can't beat a rowan in autumn. Rowans up here have been laden with berries for a couple of months - even better than usual.

Any left for me Dove?  I've been digging out turf and clay for the path, and shifting hideous heavy slabs, and some fruit cake would fill the gap in my tummy nicely...pretty pretty please  

I don't know how well the poker will do here - but I'll put it in the best possible spot and see how it goes. I have some seeds to sow of other things for the bed, so it'll fill a space if nothing else!

I've got bolognese going in the slow cooker and soup made. Definitely soup timeof the year now  

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

I've been shifting turf and digging out soil to get on with laying the path running round the side of the house. Recycling the heavy duty slabs, which is fun. Only a couple of square metres of turf and soil to lift now ...

My bulbs are all planted now - no need to wait to plant tulips here. It was quite pleasant as it managed to get up to double figures after the early frost, and there was no wind. Ideal for grafting

Should have gone to Specsavers Bob - I thought it was sodium chlorate  

Salt's bad enough though
