Afternoon all,  Beautiful sunny day here, been out and watered the pots, don't like to do it in the evening as the nights get colder. 

Finally, my canna Durban has flowered, thought I wasn't going to see any flowers, feel quite privilleged that both of them flowered in the first year, especially as I've never grown them before. When it's open properly I'll post a piccy.

Been to see mum and she looks more like her old self, so really pleased, and relieved.  Just got to get hubby through Wednesday now.

Have absolutely no idea why that picture made you giggle Hosta

I bet Wonky is shattered Dove especially starting a new job at the same time.

Slept like a log so didn't see the moon.  Typical any other night and I'd be wide awake.

Hi Folks,

DD glad Shadow is OK, at least you know he is safe even if it is sad to see him go. Hope Charlie is OK

Hope things work out for you soon Pat and glad you are OK too Topbird.

Hosta and Panda, could have joined you last night.  Finally dropped off at about 3.30 then didn't wake up untill 11.30 oops. 

Welcome back Wonky, hope Dove is enjoying her hols.

Still having a few battles re mum but hopefully she really is coming back to the home today.  Hubby is down about second op.  I think having all this on my mind is the reason I didn't sleep.

Its a lovely day here today so I've been out and revamped the pots in the front garden.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.


Last grass mowing

I usually do the last cut late October/early November but have cut in December..  It's usually early March when I start cutting again.

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?
