When we were getting ready to move I sold loads of books using Amazon. Raised enough to pay for about 3/4 of greenhouse.

Have stayed in mostly, plans to look after clematis didn't materialise. Did dash out and raise a large crock pot off ground though

Made a loaf of bread, by hand, not tasted yet , too warm. Testing in case bread maker is on the blink. 

Are we having a guess the asda delivery time again? - 5 16

Chris. I will have more to plant next year I hope.

Would love a Jackmanii alba  for my white border fence, a dark red one, and a dark blue one large flowered, summer flowering to finish off the bower but don't know which ones, Probably come down to what I can get at a very low price.

Really i don't want to got out there so miserable and damp.

Oscar (dog) is great at squirrel chasing and we have to find ways of talking about them without saying word. Even in evening if word squirrel is said he goes frantic. Hasn't caught one but did get a tail tip once.

Always wonder what he would do (or me) if he got one

Still no view of the hills. Had a fleeting glimpse of the lower half of them yesterday afternoon, but comletelt dissalleared again and still not there. Damp, dank, etc

I to love crisp autumn mornings when it's not too cold, the sun is bright and, old as I am, I can crunch the leaves under my feet. Perhaps Saturday huuh!!!

Morning all.

Finally have manged to get onto the forum and to you Forkers. Last night wouldn't let me on at all. Just caught up with the chat.

Loved the little cakes - wish i had some one to make them for

Did someone mention crocosmia 'Lucifer' would love some in front garden. Next years project I think

Still can't see hills. did have a brief visual of the lower parts yesterday. Damp, danl horrible.

Will try to get into garden later - another thread Obelixx says to give clematis a light dressing of bone meal. As have planted 15 this year will give it a go.
