Oooh, Kate. Isn't mahonia a bit spiky? But kill or cure, that's what I say.

Like your moth, Jean. He looks as though he's waving.

I haven't started feeding the birds yet. I had a nuthatch visit last winter. I had to look it up to see what it was. Lovely bird. Black sunflower seeds is what it liked. I find birds are getting fussy and are not so keen on peanuts. I fill one feeder with sunflower seeds and the other with the chicken's mixed corn.

Good morning all,

Hope everyone is okay with all this rain. not too bad here just the odd heavy shower that waits until I take the dog out.

So sorry about Lydia Rain.

Hope you are better now Hollie. I didn't know that cats get PMT.

Geoff, are you still suffering from something you picked up in Amsterdam?   

Lovely photo, Pam

My nickname at school was 'Spammy'  but it wasn't me, honest. I missed the posts, what were they selling? Have I missed a bargain? 

Glad you are okay, Inka. Really scarey.

Good morning all,

Poor Becks. I hope Jess is feeling better.

My OH once had some maggots in the boot of the car and they got out of the container. (for fishing)  Later on the car was filled with horrible bluebottles for weeks on end.

Has Michael Fish from Soton given a long range forcast yet? I think I might start taking the geranioms and begonias in. They are still looking good but there are some cold nightd forcast.

Geoff, your prize for flower of the day is a week in my caravan in January. That is the week that Becks won earlier on so I hope you and Mrs Geoff don't mind sharing.

I want a helmet like that. I haven't watched the F1 for a while. Never seemed too exciting apart from putting the right tyres on or when to come in the pits.

Had a nice afternoon with my brother and SIL and her elderly aunt. Horrible weather so was lovely just to sit in and chat after lunch.

Good to hear from you Inka. I haven't seen a wasp since the spring when the queens were coming out of hibernation. There were lots of them in the conservatory.  I leave them alone then as they eat pests such as greenfly. It's only in the autumn they are a nuisance getting drunk on fallen fruit and they are going to die soon so we can't blame them for being a bit p****d off and stinging.

Kate,Pam Flo and David. Lovely flowers. I love the peach coloured sunflower. I think Geoff takes the prize for flower of the day.

Good morning everyone,

I've been lucky with my dahlias this year. I take a chance and leave them in the ground covered with a layer of bracken. Not too keen on these big doubles. my favourites are 'Bishop's Children' and so easy to grow from seed.

Horrible day here. We have an amber weather warning.

I wanted to cancel my house insurance to take up a cheaper option and was put through to a very charming chap called Dan who I could understand for a change. He commented that my name was difficult to spell and said that his name was actually Danesh. He said it meant the God of Communication.

I think Geoff could be our God of Communication.

Good morning all,

Here's my flower of the day. The trailing begonia plug plants I bought from J***** Plants have been my star performers this year and still going strong.

Lovely day here in Cornwall  but quite chilly. Could have done with gloves on when i let the chickens out and took the dog for a walk. All change tomorrow though. We have to batten our hatches down but I still don't know where mine are!
