Morning all. Autumn mists here but supposed to be a grand day 

Heading off to the Pentlands near Edinburgh for my walk today. Had a small niggle with the new boots on Wyvis when we were away so don't want to do anything major till I know they're fine. The 5 there will do me as none are over 2,000 feet and it's distance more than anything.

Hope those students behave Jo 

Hope you're feeling well today Pat 

Hope you've got that sunny weather in place for those forum holidaymakers Verd 

Have a good day everyone

Oh that's sad fidge. I always enjoyed features on his garden. Surely he wasn't that old? 

I've trained myself to empty my ruckie after walks but I often leave my boots in the car till the following week....and they usually have my socks in them as well....

Note to self - must try harder

Jo - my oldest daughter is starting a new course at a different uni next week so she's been there all week for Fresher's. Right now she's there with her friends for a 24 hour Harry Potter fest.... 

Did some hacking and slashing outside - taking some branches off the pine at the rear of the garden. It will have to come out at some point - should never have been planted there.  I've filled the brown bin  


Spring Advice ?

Posted: 18/09/2015 at 19:49

I'd steer clear of bulbs this year unless you put  other plants in at the same time. If you wait till spring (or later on in autumn) to put the other plants in, you risk digging up and through the bulbs unless you're very careful. Much easier, and safer,  to put bulbs in after the perennials /shrubs .

I'll wear a hat on the hills tomorrow Lesley 

I'll need it anyway, temps are low on the tops now.

Jo - 1500 - that's above and beyond....

Try doing the reply first Hosta. Then move it down and add the quote above

Forgot you'd had a 'recent' hog Hosta - knew someone had 

I think my holiday's affected my brain....or what's left of it anyway 

Dove uses specialist hog food she gets from the GC. Widely available - even my local one stocks it and it's a bit useless unless you want a vase or jewellery..

Tetley - 'climb over fences'  ...what are you putting in that cat food?

Yes - I realised I didn't make my post very clear Verd.

Not sure the last one was very clear either      ....hopeless old tart ...

I'd agree Tetley - I wouldn't use it for something substantial, was really just replying to Verd's post re being too late to use it. Probably didn't make that clear 

As pansyface says - Rowan isn't an Ash, it's a Sorbus. There are two different Sorbus as well - just to confuse you! The other one is  Whitebeam which is a lovely tree with silvery grey foliage and always seems to make a nice 'tree' shape

Glad you had a good day Lesley 

The haircut - very droll  ....and it never happened - the girl had booked me in for next Friday by mistake   I'll be needing to tie my fringe in a pony tail by then

grr, still can't manage it. Forgive me guys if I practice. 


Hosta - fill your boots love. 

Glad you had a grand day with the forkers and their OHs
