    not much in the way of autumn colours, quite surprised, some trees not even begun to turn yet – is autumn holding back, had a nice lunch though

    • Evening Lynn, goodness that is a surprise, they are well turned here. Glad you at least enjoyed lunch. :rose:

      I think the Autumn colours have been slower here in CP and down in Montpellier too Jenny, tho coming back on the train there were beautiful patches of Bracken turning as well as some bright Maple trees. :rose:

    morning all, another greyish day, we had thought of a trip to Harlow Carr but decided to have a jaunt into the Lakes instead, should be some good colours on the trees, spot of lunch and then home – enjoy your day each

    • Morning Jenny – that sounds lovely and a whole lot better than my boring day! Enjoy :good:

    • Morning Jenny, sounds like a lovely day, the colours should glorious, enjoy yourselves. :rose:

    afternoon each, busy morning at church shop, thought weekend weather would have put a lot of visitors off but no, kept coming through that door, lovely to meet so many interesting people too – enjoy your afternoon folks

    • Good morning today, Jenny – we had a pretty good day here yesterday, partly at the foodbank and partly riddling aggregate and soil out of the stones on the front path – which is an incredibly slow job. Solid paths are obviously THE WAY to go.

    a gentle start to the day Anne, much appreciated after the weekend, although the sun did come out yesterday afternoon, bit peelyt wally here today but sun is trying, hope the weather fines up for you

    • Hi Jenny … it has a little …tipped it down this morning … Sadie drove through ‘lakes’ at the roadsides!! But it calmed down and now it’s probably as peely wally as chez vous :lol: :rose:

    • Oh Jenny … how very difficult for you :love: :rose:
      You wrap up and keep warm and drink lots of water, and at least keep yourself as well as possible.
      I wish you bon courage and send virtual hugs :clover: :rose:

    • Hello Jenny. Sorry to hear about your cold. OH caught his up in Arnside and I caught it a week later but it only lasted a day so I hope yours disappears as quickly. Sorry to hear about your daughter also. it must be very worrying for you. Hugs from me too. :rose:

    sounds like a plan cilla will give it a try, thanks

  • have grown some delphiniums from seed this year, now have some good plants in flowerpots – do I overwinter them in the pots or should I plant them out so that they get established a bit before next spring?

    morning all, after a terrific autumnal day yesterday, brilliant sunshine, time out in the garden and on the plot, today not quite the same, bit peely-wally, sun sort of shining, but might get outside when it warms up a bit, first frost (or visible one) last night – enjoy your day folks

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 week, 6 days ago

    morning all, another wet day here, yesterday was pants, rain all day and it looks the same today me thinks, no plans today (yet) will take it as it comes, off to do a bit of shopping first and then see what I fancy doing – enjoy your day folks

    afternoon folks, just had a shower of rain – beginning to think I’m not meant to go to the allotment to gather my squashes – busy morning at the church shop – schools day today so 5 lots of year 6 primary school classes in the church for activities – plus a lot of visitors too – ears still ringing a bit – ha ha enjoy the rest of your day you all

  • Yewbarrow posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 3 days ago

    we have a little one but not big enough to give us many apples, son has a very mature cooking apple tree, chutney made yesterday, it rained so didn’t get to the allotment – never mind sun is shining today – enjoy your day Anne

    • Hi Jenny … yes, we had a lovely old one at the Pres, but it’s just a graceful, wooden statue now.
      I’d like a slim one with cooking apples on it :confused: :lol: don’t think it exists :lol:

  • great picture Anne, we have a very old variety of michlemas daisy in the garden, an absolute thug in that it creeps along the ground and would take over if I let it, but the bees, hoverflies etc just love it at this time of the year, so whenever I try to control it I always leave some behind just for them

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    morning all, bit grey and damp here, hope to bring squashes back from plot this afternoon, let them riipen off here at home before the frosts get going. Came back from visit to son and family with a load of apples so a bit more chutney me thinks, could open a shop the amount I have made this year – ha ha, sure it will all get eaten, enjoy your day folks

    • Hallo Jenny …. I must try to fit in an apple tree somewhere!!! :lol: Have a good Sunday :rose:
