The garden goes into Autumn mode



It's that time of year when the back garden starts to look at bit run-down and tatty, and indeed it's preparing itself for the winter ahead. I've got the mower-man coming tomorrow, so those leaves will have to be raked up. Meanwhile it's still a nice sunny place. In fact it's been a sunny place most of the summer. Not had much rain here, and it shows, doesn't it?

  2. No, Melissa, it's for guests who don't behave. I can lock them in there overnight, and they get no breakfast till they say they're very, very sorry. And the really evil ones ones who insult my cooking, sneer as my dress sense, and streak my carpets with wine stains get to sleep in the glasshouse!

    Naked, of course!

  4. Quite. And if they get nibbled by slugs and spiders that's their lookout!

    Actually, I still feel that my house - Mum and Dad's old home - is a place where only very nice people can come, so I shouldn't have to impose such draconian punishments!

You must be registered with a proper blogging platform if you wish to make a comment. I have had to deny access to completely anonymous commentators.

This blog is public, and I expect comments from many sources and points of view. They will be welcome if sincere, well-expressed and add something worthwhile to the post. If not, they face removal.

Ideally I want to hear from bloggers, who, like myself, are knowable as real people and can be contacted. Anyone whose identity is questionable or impossible to verify may have their comments removed. Commercially-inspired comments will certainly be deleted - I do not allow free advertising.

Whoever you are, if you wish to make a private comment, rather than a public one, then do consider emailing me - see my Blogger Profile for the address.
