Anyone done any gardening today?

I mowed most of the meadow, a small area needs the Allen scythe (tomorrow). Now, when the leaves fall, I can admire the carpets of yellow beneath the trees. This assuming they fall in calm weather rather than the howling gale that deposits them all in one of the ponds.

Dug up a poor buddleia with a view to widening a path. Realised why poor doer, roots hadn't broken out from the pot-bound specimen I planted years ago.

I do what Bob does but with size 5s if the bag is still closed. If it's open I prod it with a fork until it gives in

We had an exciting moment some years ago, we watched a privet hawkmoth emerge from underground, inflate its wings and hang out to dry or warm up or whatever they do
