Gilly - you've lost the plot- it was Peter Gilmore! I loved the Onedin Line and was lucky enough to see Peter Gilmore in a production of Noises Off many years ago. He was excellent. 

Just as well you posted archie- us laydees were getting a bit carried away! 

And I remember the original Sooty and Sweep, Andy Pandy and the Woodentops...even though I'm so young..

Antirrhinum Birdy. Not totally hardy as far as I know.

Lovely autumnal pic 

My little Tiarella 'Cygnet', awaiting it's new home. Maybe today it'll go in!

You're needing to find someone more current lily! 

Eric McCormack's doing it for me just now! (Will from Will and Grace) His new show's a load of old tosh but he's looking good!

Does anyone else love Dave Allen as much as I do? His shows were just wonderful. Sadly missed.

What's the star in your garden right now

I bought this little Tiarella recently- 'Cygnet' to go in a shady border. 

Lovely foliage and flowers

Know just how you feel Hollie. Good luck with your new projects - you can make lots of plans over the winter for the new plot though, and keep us updated with pix

You're up early for a 19 year old then!

Lily- I liked Michael Landon from LH on the P when he was in Bonanza.

Oh yes- always acknowledge Mr Magpie lily...but just because he's a friendly bird - no other reason...

Don't know the passing on the stairs one though. You'll have to enlighten me

Lovely pix everyone. Really enjoying these landscapes. I have loads on a disc from old computer so I'll have to have a look for them 

Nikki - I had a photo of an inversion but it's on that disc. Ben Lui from the top of Bheinn Dorain - the cloud at the top just cleared as we got there. Sheer chance and really beautiful.

Found this - can't remember where it is though  Point and shoot from half way up somewhere!

Forgot to do white rabbits - but hey - I'm not superstitious anyway. I keep my rabbit's foot and  lucky white heather tucked safely away. And I moved the ladder so I don't have to walk under it when I go to the car.

Woody - you have to go and see someone about your 'weather/season' denial...

It's a big job Lyn- hope you've been eating your porridge and spinach! 

Very satisfying when you get it all completed though. Did you have a chipper for the conifers? It would have been some good recycling! We did that with a huge fir tree at last house which was in a seriously bad place.
