Message for Sotongeoff,  Geoff,  I understand you have Man Flu,  so here's something to cheer you up,  the new Series of "Merlin" has been advertised on the Beeb so keep a look out for it,  I would think it will start in November.

And still it rains and still the wind blows but I have a very heart just now as my darling Lydia (pussy cat) passed away 7.30 tonight,  the grief doesn't get any the  easier does it

It was nice yesterday,  I managed to get the front grass cut split most of the Primulas and planted some Daffs,  but today,   well least said I think,   started to rain last night about 8ish and has just carried on the rain itself isn't that bad it's the wind that's making it far worse than it is,  I don't get the worst of the rain like some folk do so can't complain when others are flooded out,  poor birds are finding it difficult to feed in the wind though and I've run out of fat balls but it's pension day tomorrow so my job will be to get some more for them.

Bright and sunny here in the NW. The box got it right,that's two days on the trot, think I need to lie down. Here's to hoping it's the right forecast for tomorrow as the plan is to plant out bulbs

It's forecast frost tonight so the Christmas spuds have been brought into the GH and covered in fleece, I'm taking no chances, this will be the 3rd year trying. They may have late blight though or some of the shoots broke and died when I tied them up to stop the leaves drooping. Me thinks if they still have healthy growth by mid October I'm in with a chance of freshly dug spuds in December, wish me luck

Rain. Took me a long time to get my confidence back after I broke a bone in my leg, even now come the icy weather, I'll be clearing paths and the front of snow  daily. Hope the weather stays fine for you to cut the front grass.

Hi Zoomer,  I know what you mean about the lack of confidence I do tend now to take each step with extreme care I'm just so frightened of falling over again I know it was an accident but it stays with you,  I must try to get over it otherwise I shall end up stuck in the house when the ice comes,  snow I should be OK as I have those grippers that go on the bottom of the boots/shoes they served me well the last 2 winters when we had all the snow.


It's dropped down to 7.5c now so going to be a chilly night,  guess the thermal PJ's will be out before long,  just makes the winter seem to go on for ever when the cold starts this early.

It's been a cracking day here wall to wall sunshine all day and in fact it still is albeit the night clouds are rolling in,  when I took  the dog out this morning I was rather nervous as there was frost about so I put my walking boots on just in case but didnt need to worry as it was dry underfoot but only 3.3c so definitely rather cold for me at least,  has been 13c for most of the day but cooling off quite quickly now at 10.5c,  supposed to be nice again tomorrow as well do hope so the I can get the front grass cut which will probably be the last one for the year.

My adult male Charlie is still popping into the garden now and then but his 4 youngsters are visiting a lot more than he does,  they are very possessive over the garden and if any other Blackbirds drop in they do get very upset no doubt as Winter closes in around us all they will all return to the gardens for us to feed them over the hard time.

Quite a nice day here albeit on the chilly side, sun trying it's hardest to get through the clouds but won't hold my breath,  when I took the dog out last thing last night there was a poor little Hedgehog in the gutter that had been run over so this morning I went out armed with shovel and brush and a couple of carriers and removed it not nice for me but even worse for the school children that had to pass it on the way to school,  poor little thing it looked like a youngster as well.

Hi Frank,  it's great where I take the dog for a walk as I disturb the midges from around the trees then all off a sudden the swifts and Swallows swoop down and almost plough into me it's great fun watching them diving and darting about will miss them when they go,  haven't heard or seen any Canada Geese coming back yet as I seem to be in their flight path,  ho hum it's raining again,  never mind at least it's still 15.1c in the garden ,  there were a few patches of blue earlier on,  not enough to make a sailor a pair of trousers though.
