    wonderful leafmould though if you can gather them up, I am missing that with our new garden only a young copper beech tree at the entrance to our front garden and beech leaves take yonks to rot down but every little helps
    • evening all, don’t know where the tv got the weather forecast from for this area today, wet, wet, wet, no sunny spells – never mind – another batch of chutney about to get potted up, think that will keep us going for a while, managed a tiny amount of red currant jelly yesterday, about a pound of red currants which came with us from our previous…[Read more]

      thought the ones on the side of the birch were the ones you could hsarpen your knives on – lovely, this time of the year is just great for all the fungi

          wet and a bit windy – – – so far – more coming later having listened to the shipping forecast last night, off out for a jaunt up the coast, not sure how long we will be able to do this – have a feeling we will be locked down or locked in again more and more as winter progresses, enjoy your day and stay safe folks

          love the fungi – used to get blue wax caps all over our back lawn, had to have scotch pine cut down which was growing there and the wax caps stopped – obviously the one which was important to the pine tree

            another grey old day, rain and gales forecast – OH has hospital appointment later so that is today sorted if you know what I mean, take care folks and stay safe wherever you are – we are in tier one here, son and family are tier two, can visit us but we can’t visit them- is it all designed to confuse us so much we just stay put – ha ha! enjoy your day

                Oh thank you Jenny :dance: and good morning. I need to do some serious study of the heavens, but with so much else to do, I forget. Could you possibly post the star-gazer’s name please? Maybe I can look it up on line? Which local newspaper is it? Ooh dear, hope am not being a nuisance :excruciating: HAGD :love: :rose:

                morning all, off shortly for blood test – and then to pick up daughter and get “big” supermarket shop done – only do this about every 6 weeks or so, saves a lot of hassle and just shop local the rest of the time, dry and a bit sunny so far, alpines on their way, very quick service me thinks, for those who asked re birthday and birthday present…[Read more]

                  evening each, well a couple of decent days so far, couldn’t get alpines from garden centre yesterday – only have them in summer and autumn they said – there’s me thinking we still had a bit more autumn to go – never mind found some on the internet which looked good, got first post in ready for trellis, got a grape vine and clemetis brought from…[Read more]

                  • Hallo Jenny. It was a lovely afternoon, but whilst I was outside it grew very cold and spotted with more rain, so I gave up … it’s nearly dark anyway. You have a lovely evening too :rose:

                    hate it when that happens Anne – go to bed really shattered and wide awake – not much fun

                                Did think Ann 60 plus years ago I would be lugging the bags of conkers home and getting told off by my Mum for bring so many home – ha ha! – they do look lovely though when first off the tree
