Parthenocissus quinquefolia aka virginia creeper. It goes this colour at this time of year, before all the leaves fall off. They are green earlier on in the year.

I think we should start in the spa for a few treatments. (Ragdale Hall thermal spa) so you'll need a swimming costume and dressing gown.

Then I think the blackcurrant vodka should be about ready. Nice added to prosecco.

Well as if I didn't have enough to do, now I have to get a bodywork quote for the car. I went to fetch the choccies, and while  I was sat in the car, fully in a parking bay, a golf tried to come into the next bay at the wrong angle. I thought the wind had got up as the car rocked. She pulled through, and I got out. My offside rear bumper corner has a huge white patch on it,and her wheel arch an even bigger one. When I tapped on the window and said she'd just hit me, she said she hadn't. A man arrived and said, oh it will polish out. ... and the dents?  I've done enough polishing this week.  Details exchanged and she then drove off. I have no doubt that if I hadn't been there at the time, I would have come back to find the scrape.

Its raining here. I'm depressed.

Autumn Raspberries

Order them now, Lilly Pilly. They will send out as soon as they are lifted. They are best planted as soon as you receive them, you can prepare a trench now. If the ground is frozen, you can't plant.

No Dove. Freeze the excess to have in your porridge in winter, or on pavlova, or mixed with apple in pie,or easily makes jam,or coulis for ice cream.
