I have started the winter clear up of the garden by sorting out the patio pots.
All the pelagoniums and fuscias are potted up ready to go into the green house for the winter and some in the conservatory.
I left the hanging basket as it is still blooming beautifully albeit set on a bucket.
Mike cut the grass, weeded and sorted the raised salad bed and our herb patch.
We spent a good four hours out there yesterday and it shows, so I am pleased with our efforts.
It was a real autumn day and the sun was quite warm, there was that lovely autumny scent in the air too.
I want to freeze the parsley this year so we'll have some fresh in winter soups.
We finished just as the rain started and then had our Tesco's Indian meal which was delicious!
Just served it out of the containers, bombay potatoes. chicken tikka masala, chicken korma,with pilau rice and naan bread... some thing I love! It was so nice to have a ready meal after working so hard and no pans to wash!
Not quite the diet but it's a one off!!
Today, Sunday, its dreary and wet, and definitely cooler. Autumn has really arrived. I do hope we don't have another winter like last year I just couldn't face all that snow again, I hardly went out when it was around, as since having my knee op I am terrified of falling over, although I did once, but in the house and my knee was fine, but I worry all the time.
I have had a lot of hip pain and had a Dr appointment just before we went away two weeks ago and he diagnosed bursitis and gave me a cortison injection. It wasn't too bad and the anti-inflatory tabs have helped so I walked a fair bit on holiday pain free!
Today I think a relaxing day and I need to make some cards, which I am looking forward to... hope all you lot are having a happy crafty day too!
