The first frost

Posted: 28/09/2015 at 08:00

I have one of those neighbours across the road Bboy. Cuts the grass ( size of a postage stamp) once a year with a strimmer. When the wind blows, guess where all the dandelion seeds end up  

Always one isn't there?

Had to laugh out loud the day he hung up a hanging basket at the front door!

I have to take issue at 'fairy' seeds.....

Indelable marker pens for real?

I must ask OH how he marks his balls. No hairs on the Chinagraph.

Oh...read it properly now.... I see....

I remember using those at school-  a long time ago.

I find pencil works well - haven't really looked into decent marker pens. The nurseries must have good ones though - their labels are impossible to re use!

Morning all. I woke at 3am and had a look but total cloud here so no chance of the moon. Did you get any pix doc and chicky? They've been showing some on the Beeb news.  Think Bob and Davidk were going to try - Bob's set up sounded very impressive 

Was up Loch Lomond yesterday too LP - not been on that side of the country recently. Lots of trees turning. Hope dog is ok - duck tape's marvellous stuff isn't it? 

That little chap's very well camouflaged Pat 

Off to see what's what and then off to work. It's not all beer and skittles for me, you know.... 

Have a good day everyone

help please

I know it's a been a slow news month, but .....

I've stopped reading newspapers because I can't be bothered with the endless sensationalism. Also, 24 hour news reporting means there are too many hours to fill, so we end up with a lot of 'non news' news 

Gone off topic a bit - sorry Tim

They're dangerous/hazardous and going to kill children apparently....

I have a picture of triffids in my head  now. It's like an episode of Dr Who

Is it wrong that I laughed at that report?

I had a laugh about the umbrellas. I can never understand why people use them.


they're really not much use here in Scotland Pat but people still buy  them!


I now have a clearer sky so I took some pix - on the Moon thread 


Blood moon....

The sky's cleared now - so I went out and got this


When I learn how to use all the features on the camera it'll help!

That's a lovely view Pat. Hope there's no fires today to spoil it
