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'....

On a slightly more uplifting note - is anyone watching the Proms? 

They started by playing The Marseillaise....

Deeply moving, yet stirring. Is there a better National Anthem? Not in my book. That bit in Casablanca always moves me to tears....

I think you're right Yvie. Most of the cr*p that happens is caused by humans

You should be able to post pix up to 5MB Johnny, but that isn't working just now....not sure when it'll be fixed either....

If I can do it, I'm sure you can!

Although I had to have the help of my daughter to do it...
