Gloomy but dry in Bristol so far Flumpy but rain forecast.  Expecting family visitors so checking what jobs need doing!  I think all the tender plants are in now.

Dry, warm day in Bristol but rain forecast for tonight.  Autumn colours are appearing so do not want wind to knock the leaves off the beautiful trees!

So do mine Flumpy.  That one is Joyce's.  I have flowers as well as fruit on my Japanese Quince at the moment so it is getting the seasons mixed up as well.

Awww Flumpy .  Not to worry.  i have lots of friends, family and the NHS looking after me!  Seeing the heart failure specialist next Wednesday.  Saving every breath i can by resting a lot.  Precious thing breath!  My spirits are lifted every morning when i look out my window at my acer and into my conservatory at my pelargoniums.  Slept through till 4am this morning when my pounding heart woke me but that is so much better than the 1am which has been the usual lately so should not feel so whacked today.

Amazing amount of colour and nearly October, Joyce.  long live global warmimg or climate change or whatever it is called nowadays!  Eight baby bluetits have just flown into my clematis montana thicket over the garage roof followed by a parent so looks like the nest is in there.
