Come on class, pull yourselves together,.

Welcome bjay, you don't have to be mad but it does help as you will soon find out if you hang around. It doesn't matter what you talk about, the conversation goes off at a tangent, so don't worry, you will be guaranteed a laugh.

How cute is that Gary, now I know what to listen for.,

Leaves are turning, and dropping how sad. don't like the thought of winter at all, already got thicker jumpers etc out. OH wore his scarf when he went out last night, a sure sign winter is getting closer he's a bit of a wimp, it will be the gloves next week.

Good morning all,

There's nothing happening in my neck of the wood, quiet as the grave .Everyone's away on their hols. Some people buy their house just for the house and don't consider the garden at all,. Then they move in and realise that gardening' is jolly hard work and it is easier to pay someone else to "tidy" it up. The results often speak for them selves.

A little snippet from todays Daily Mail. - apparently scientists have discovered that mice can be taught to sing, well Bagpuss knew that! The next job for Gareth maybe, a mouse choir,

There is a lovely cartoon to go with the article. A little mouse sitting on a stool playing a guitar with couple looking on. One says to the other. "Well I knew he could sing but didn't know he could play the guitar." just my sense of humour.

Have a good day, no rain here as yet.

Hi everyone.

The Garden Centre was full of C Decorations, sorry Geoff, but it was full on as you walked in the door. I'm not a misery, no matter what any body says, but I really don't want to think about C yet. To top it all I went to visit a neighbour who I haven't seen for a couple of days and was getting a bit concern about and as I left she handed me a C cake she had made for us. She says I have to feed it then went on to explain that it needs a drop of brandy every week, until C.

No tea for me tonight, had fish and chips at lunch time, so too full for tea, may be a sandwich later.

Will make my way to the naughty corner now, sorry.

Afternoon everyone.

It's been a lovely day here, although to box said Dark Clouds, we haven't seen any.

I quite like this time of year. It was very still, no wind, and fairly warm as we went through the Wolds to the garden centre. OH now has new hoses for the garden pond pump, and has reconnected them,so all's well again..

I don't mind spiders, and the webs that they spin are just incredible and you get to see their beautiful patterns when the dew is on them. Great pictures. Thanks for sharing.

I'm here Geoff. Everyone must be at work or getting ready for the day ahead. We are going to the garden centre today to buy new piping for the garden pond pump, the other is kaput More expense.

Hope it stays fine for you, we have got a cloudy day here at the moment, but hopefully the sun will shine as we go over the Lincolnshire Wolds towards the sea.

Lovely pictures Pam and Gary, is Autumn really here?

Have a good day everyone.

Like the look of the castle in Spain. We could all move in and no one would notice, it's soooo big.I quite like the idea of a holiday home somewhere but not Spain, all that  sun, cheap booze, warm balmy nights, nothing to do all day, on the other hand.......

Back to reality, tea to get ready.

Lamb steaks, mash, cauliflower and I think a few yorkie puds, you don't get that in Spain.

Hi again.

It's still sunny here, I saw on the weather at lunch time that the south west and southern counties generally are having a lot of rain. Just sorted out my pots of lilies, must stop buying then, up to 20 something now.

Pleased all's well Frank. you get used to seeing peoples postings, don't stay away too long.

 Becks, pleased to hear Jess is feeling better, it's a worry when they aren't well

What a good idea Flo! I've just been round the garden in between cleaning the bathroom, oh the joy of it, and deciding the next job. A few pic I took on my travels around the garden, as you can see I'm no David Bailey

The acer is just starting to turn red. Now I have decided that I will have a coffee too. OH is battling with the pond pump, it's pipe work had come adrift, not a happy bunny.
