Good evening Marion, and what a cold wet evening it is , sounds like you've had a nice rainy day in, it's good to catch up . I got home from work at six and it had already started to go dark, I'm missing the long summer nights.

so glad your conservatory got finished in time for the wet weather

Thanks Marion, I will do that tomorrow as it's gone dark here, next year I will grow them earlier in the year

Marion your photos are lovely especially the one next to your door, the white wall makes it stand out even more, Marion I too have been snapping photos before the sun goes down

Wow Marion you've been busy, can't believe how many plants you've got in your conservatory, are they all for next spring?. I use a rake to gather my leaves and straight in the garden bin, although I won't have half as many as you Marion, we are meant to have sunshine today but all I can see is fog , it's rained buckets all week and is very cold bbbbrrrrr , hey you was right about the banana making my tomatoes go red it really does work

Awe Marion, I've just zoomed in on your picture, those flowers are gorgeous, I understand what you mean about writing your poems in a different way, I like to draw, paint or play my organ, but I have to be in the right mood, it normally happens when I'm off work.

weather tomorrow is cloudy in the morning and clear skies in the afternoon, going to bake rhubarb crumble tomorrow mmmmmmm , but before that I will be tidying our garden, what are you doing Marion?

Yes your right Marion we've had a lovely year, tomorrow I'm going to try my curly Kale with my tea, do you just snap the branch off or cut it Marion ?.

i forgot to say I love your poem, did you write it yourself ?

Hi Marion, just been catching up on your forum, lovely photos there, I can't believe the size of that water Lilly!! . I ate my first home grown tomato yesterday, I feel so proud of myself , looks like there's quite a few more to eat yet once they are ripe mmmm, the temperature has dropped today  Cold and wet so no gardening for me
