The first frost

Fairy are you dropping me in it with Verdun. 

Agree RB, I think the West Midlands has had a good summer this year.  It's a gorgeous day again with lots of sunshine and blue sky.

Anyone fancy starting a new Cats thread

Used to love Strictly but got bored last year and stopped.  Don't watch any other reality shows, can't stand them, especially the awful x factor and big brother.

Just listened to the Bond tune, think I'd quite like the song if it was performed by someone else.  He's awful.

Night Pat, Afternoon everyone else, It's been a lovely day here, pity I spent most of it in the hospital with hubby.  His op has only been a partial success and he will need a further procedure next wednesday.  A bit disappointing as he has only just gone back to teaching after the first one.

Bulbs arrived today so looks like I will be having a marathon planting session in Oct and Nov.  Two more lots of seeds have germinated Wallflowers Ivory White and foxgloves Alba.

Haven't heard the new Bond theme.  I loved Skyfall thought Adele did a great job.  Whose singing this one?


Where are we ordering our summer bulbs from?

Oh it wasn't gee tee, it was Pheasant Acre Plants.  I saw their display at the Malvern spring show and thought how lovely it was

Well there you go, said I was tired.

After reading thread yesterday I ended up checking out Gee Tee website and bought even more tulips that I didn't think I needed

Hi Folks, Didn't get much sleep last night and then had Nanna duties so feeling pretty tired and confused, have only just got back and had a quick look back - can't remember much apart from something about Verdun tidying out Lillys cupboards in just his socks???? you might want to be careful of that cutlery drawer

Got a bit bored at Firstborns so popped out to Wyvale and picked up a few plants to tart up a couple of pots in the front garden, inbetween waiting for a cooker to be delivered, the BT man coming to check the phone line and doing a couple of loads of washing.

Taking Hubby back to the hospital tomorrow for a check up, don't think I'll be doing much else though.
