    Morning clickers. Quite an autumn-y feeling start to the day here but sunny and bright, so can’t complain. Did the shopping and cleaning yesterday but didn’t manage to get to the plot. Will try to get over today for more clearing and tidying – I love sorting it for winter and I can get some garlic and onions in. Rumour is that it is going to…[Read more]

    Morning ladies. Yes, very happy to see the little birds – mainly blue tits, sparrows & robins – fluttering in. They make the garden feel more alive, don’t you think, Anne. I hope Robin can continue with a bit of growing if he wants to but I think he will probably be growing little bits in his garden. He always grows his beans there but if he…[Read more]

    Morning clickers from a beautifully sunny but nippy morning here in Essex – think it went down to 7/8 degrees last night. Spent some time over the plot yesterday digging up some spuds – 13.8kg from less than 2kg of seed potatoes which I was very pleased with as they were sort of left to their own devices. Will throw some more of those in next…[Read more]

    • Hello Jenn :-) Good news on your spud harvest then :good: What a shame for your oldest plotholder – I hope he’ll still be able to do a bit of cultivation by limiting what is feasible for him to grow. :fingers-crossed: I had great tits in the garden this morning – not seen for months – so I agree with you about them knowing about autumn! Hope…[Read more]

      • Yes re the birds. Friend, Bobs , has been feeding them all thro’ the Summer and there are always loads in his back yard; but have seen only a few, plus faithful Robin of course, Robin, no longer Freckles :lol:
        Today I heard them in the trees and hedges and of course , Robin hopped by to say ‘Hallo!’ :rose:

    Afternoon all, drizzly old day here so not much done outside…well, nothing really if I am honest :lol: Had a second appointment with the bathroom designer this afternoon deciding where to trim costs…we haven’t won the blummin’ lottery! We have finished the hedge in the back garden so only the front to do now, phew. That is a lot easier as…[Read more]

    • Evening Jenn, very autumnal today after a glorious warm day yesterday, managed to do a fair amount in the garden after being in Cornwall for a week. The rain last night was very welcome last night, the garden was very dry, I watered a lot of the veg after dinner yesterday.
      Did some ironing today after Pilates, did manage a hour in the garden…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn and Lynn :-) You both sound busy in one way or another. Good idea to get Finn into gardening – expect it’s the machinery he likes ;-) And hope you enjoyed Cornwall, Lynn :-)

      • Evening Jane, yes we did enjoy Cornwall, I thoroughly enjoyed ‘Heligan’ (I preferred it to the Eden project) we walked miles, well that’s what it felt like!!! Loved the walled garden and veg garden.
        Back to reality, well playing catch up with the washing and gardening!!!! Glad to be back in my own bed now👍

        • Glad to hear that, Lynn :-) I loved Heligan but we were curtailed in how much we could see as f-i-l was with us and has mobility problems. We’ll go back one day :good:

    Morning clickers. Wet start to the week here but the garden needs it so am not complaining. It was lovely over the weekend though so we started the hedge trimming. It is always a time consuming job as next door’s hedge is massive. The OH was on the tower and I was spotting for him this time to ensure there wasn’t a repeat of his accident.…[Read more]

    Morning Jane :rose: I saw your gorgeous garden on FB yesterday – so lovely. Yes, could do all that and walk to the shops! Would love the change. We were looking at rentals in the centre of town and it is completely doable. All pipe dreams at the moment though :lol:

    Morning clickers. Well it’s meteorological autumn, it is decidedly cooler and there’s flutterbys on the asters….this little patch of Essex is weathering the storms being fought out amongst the politicians and I am happy to keep it that way. Had a fun day at the Warner Bros. Harry Potter tour yesterday…The legs were absolutely walked off us…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn. I have never seen a Harry Potter film but I can imagine what fun you all had :-) just think, in Colchester you could visit Beth Chatto’s garden as often as you like, be near the sea and hop into Suffolk :good:

    Morning clickers. 32° forecast here today so shall not be doing too much…probably sitting somewhere shady with my book as the house is so clean ;-) Had a lovely weekend despite a nasty sore throat and temperature. Now it is just a sniverly cold. Went to a music day at The Gibberd Garden yesterday and then there was a classic car event at…[Read more]

    Hiya Lyn. Yes, the tractors ad harvesters were out and about late last night.

  • Jenn posted an update 4 weeks, 1 day ago

    Morning clickers. Another nice start here and I think it is going to be a warm one :notacloudinsight: Have woke with a blocked nose, headache and super sore throat :disappointed: I am either in for a stinker of a summer cold or I am allergic to cleaning. Hope to get out in the garden later for a little tityvating but what with the carpet…[Read more]

    • Oh dear Jenn, I hope it’s the excessive cleaning!!! At least you won’t have to clean again u til at least the end of September!!! I hope you feel better soon🌷🌷
      It looks like we have another couple of weeks of this lovey weather, then hopefully it will spread into September 👍.

    Morning cills – I was woken by foxes. They were so noisy, the little beggars. Your new plants sound lovely. I need a rejig this autumn, I think. Enjoy your day :rose:

    • Morning Cilla, love the sound of your walk, your plants sound good too👍
      Morning Jenn, we get woken up by noisy pigeons&sparrows, plus tractors and combine harvesters at this time of the year!!💐

    Afternoon ladies…isn’t it lovely today. Still cleaning! My SIL isn’t all had – she’s really easy to chat to and we get along really well – she’s just a devil on the cleaning front :lol: Once they are here and they have seen the house at peak clean I will crack out the beers and everyone can relax :-)

    Morning all. Well, the lovely summer weather is back and the weekend is looking super :notacloudinsight: :notacloudinsight: :notacloudinsight: Sorry I have not been around for a few days but the SIL & BIL are coming to stay and I have been cleaning like mad – she is a bit OCD on the cleaning front and the last time she was here she bleached…[Read more]

    Afternoon everyone from a sunny, warmish Essex. Back from our holibobs safe and sound. Got home Tuesday evening and spent yesterday washing & unpacking, as you do. It was absolutely hissing down all day so nipped to Tesco & Aldi for supplies and generally lazed about. Just in from the plot – what a disaster zone that and my garden are…[Read more]

    • Hi Jenn … welcome home :high-five: :rose:

      • cilla replied 1 month ago

        Morning Jenn, all that washing is the downside of hols but exciting looking round garden and plot to see what triumphs and disasters there are. ;-)

    • Welcome home Jenn, bummer on the weather and garden disasters, but I’m sure you’ll get it sorted. At least your RDoYs look yummy. :good: Have a good day today. :-)

    • Morning Jenn :-) Doesn’t it always happen like that! Still, there’s nowt a clicker can’t sort out. Hope it’s better weather today – have a good one :-)

    Morning clickers. Liking to be a much more unsettled week here in the west but we can’t complain. Had a gorgeous afternoon on Silver Strand the other day with temps of 24°…we all caught the sun! OH is working some of this week but finishing early so we can all go off and explore still. It’s a sunny start here with a wild wind but it could…[Read more]
