Morning all to come/afties Pat. Hope the sun stays out for you  

The coup attempt seems to have been short lived. What 's next? 

Hope your friends are all ok Yvie. 

Glad I'm off to Glen Lyon soon...the worst that can happen is rain. Oh... if only that was the only thing for anyone to worry about....

It's a hidden gem indeed Joyce. A beautiful place full of peace and calm and wildlife. It'll be chilly today, but hopefully the cloud will be high enough to allow views. 

Have a good day everyone

Fab wasn't it Dove? Agree about the Elgar too  

Very wet here but it was also strangely warm. The garden looked nice with all the rain - very lush 

Should really get to my pit now - off to Glen Lyon tomorrow. Supposed to be reasonably dry so will hopefully get some nice pix.

night all

Aster- I think I could sum the summer up quite easily - p*ss poor!  

B3 - yup - early August is the norm for the start of Autumn here, but we often get the best weather of the year then so it can be lovely

Hey Verdi - good to 'see' you   

Nice bit of sunshine for them Madeleine - they like that best....     

Not quite so happy in shade. I think they make excellent pot specimens  though

Fantastic LF - greenies and a bullfinch. I'm very jealous  

Used to get lots of greenfinches round here but they're non existent now  

Rarely see bullfinches, although we had a pair regularly visiting at the last house and I often see them when walking. There are some around but they have an NT garden close at hand so there's plenty of habitat for them there

I don't do much to mine Madeleine. They thrive on neglect...well mine do anyway 

I replace a bit of compost/soil each year, and they get the odd feed of tomato food or liquid seaweed if I remember. Other than that, I just cut out old foliage to allow new stuff to come through.

They do benefit from being split every few years as it helps to retain  their colour and  vigour.

We have plenty of rain just now - been perdiddling down since mid morning  

That's a shame you've had problems. The forum was updated but there's been a few issues with it...

Nothing over 2.5 is uploading David. I did flag it up...several weeks ago....

Love the pic Sheps. Will have to get my brain working to think of a caption though....not sure I can manage that after the week I've had at work... 

but it's what we'd call up here -  'a wee stoater'....
