Autumn Colour

Leaves off our potted acres already.

Drive over the moors from work and the colours are looking fantastic, deep gold grasses and darker bracken, looks wonderful with the sun on it. Must stop and take a photo, but usually in a hurry to get home!

Morning all, decided to have a lie in this morning, also feeling bunged up. Sun is shining and now I am feeling guilty, as I should be out planting my wallflowers, but don't have as many as Monty. OH just brought me tea and toast. Watching the clouds sailing by, sheep graing on the hill opposite and trying not to think about much. Racing a good book, Moth Smoke by Mohsin Hamid, who also wrote The reluctant Fundamentalist which was excellent.

Nigel's (not doggie Nigel) looks too good to me. Also a man with copious leftovers in his fridge!

Was going to comment on something else but can't remember what it was now, brain dead!

Dean, M65 very useful for getting to Chorley and Preston, and forBoundary Mill at Colne. Not too busy either.

Geoff, don't know sorry, just caught the end of it on travel news on the way home.

What's for tea?

Mushroom omelette and salad, but had a snack of a piece of pork pie when I got in from work. Buy it at the farm shop on my way home. Naughty but yummy.

Evening, TGIF!
Pendle Hill not far from here, often fly over on my broomstick.
Rhubarb Triangle, they do tours and you can hear it growing.

Geoff, what's happening at Southamptin Airport, is it anything to do with you?

Evening, just got through today's crop of messages. Fantastic drive over the hills to work today, clear sky, sunshine, water in the reservoir like glass with the sun reflected in it and mist in the valleys. Shame I was on the way to work really, it all went down hill after that.

Too much to comment on, but paper woses now in my head, exam answers made me laugh, I get some great stuff from overseas students, but can never remember them. Nice veg and flowers. Everyone who mentioned the c word, off you go to the naughty step, like I had to!

My cuttings!

Pam, what a great greenhouse you have. It looks very well organised, you should see the state of mine and it is only small. You are so industrious and obviously a talented gardener.

Thanks for the ideas Gary, some interesting ones there. Did you know red bull came from Thailand originally and was bought by someone from Austria?

Great minds thnk alike, the students have just done the analysis if the Olympics in class. Sounds like you need to come in to do a guest lecture!

I just caught the tale end of it, took me a long time to write the essays, still some left to do, but it can wait until tomorrow. I suppose the wrong person is going to get blamed for the murder? I thought the bit I watched went very well live, no-one waiting at a door ready to come through then moving suddenly, as happened on the Bill, I remember.

Figrat, I was glad he won too, his mum was overjoyed. you had to feel sorry for the other two though. Fives cakes too many to cope with maybe. What pesky things those fondant fancies were. Betty's do a lovely fondant fancy, as do Mr Kipling!,
