Don't like the clocks changing in autumn.  It simply reinforces the onset of winter.

Don't forget folks.....hour FORWARD tomorrow night 

It's my birthday

Picked up a wonderful pre ordered birthday cake for my niece ...21 next week.  Cost an arm and a leg.  I am her nearest relative and we are like father and daughter since her mum died when she was just 15 months old.  

Funny, it was her mum's 52nd birthday couple of days ago .....always strange to see happy birthday flowers from her for her mum 

HELLO FORKERS!

Beautiful sunny afternoon and evening here.  Perfect blue sky, no wind and dry 

Salvia Amistad is becoming richer by the day......deep  purple now.  The autumn suits it brilliantly.  Have a yellow leaved dogwood behind one and combo is striking.  

Went to see my mum earlier in the care home.  She was tired and just wanted to sleep.  A visitor .....known for her ability to talk and talk and  talk and ltalk and talk.....had seen her just before I arrived so my visit was wasted.  Ah well!  See her tomorrow

Prob over watering?  Would only cut off flowered stems.  Dianthus won't want watering now

Good morning folks.  Bit damp but quite warm 

Woody....my style too.  Exciting planting up fresh border.  When I do I think it will be so much better than the replaced one.  Usually it is but it takes the second season for me to tinker again for "perfection" 

Don't let autumn get to you MrsG. I'm in the  same boat because so much seems much like it was in summer and I'm loathe to cut it all down.  We will all catch up so relax

The thing about council tax is that too many on the council are overpaid and we see money wasted time and again but to keep services for vulnerable people we should pay  more council tax.  The Council has cut care support for those with learning difficulties down here ...affecting their families too.....and this cannot be right

Tootles...pretty near the mark 

Runnybeak  Maybe!  It just shows the sense of humour here.  Nice!  

 

Slugs and snails

Nematodes will be useless now.  Too cold.  Use in spring.

Pellets or hand picking slugs for now but dahlias etc soon be over anyway
