Hi everyone, just checking in to say hello. Not much has been happening in my world out of the ordinary, so not much to report and certainly no wonderful photos to share. So I shall just ramble on a bit about bits and pieces.
Most of my energy has been taken up in the garden these past few weeks in an effort to have it looking reasonable before hubby and I head off to Europe at the end of April. I've been pruning, pruning and pruning with a little weeding and transplanting of self sewn plants to fill up spaces in the garden. Who knew two days of gardening straight would give me so many aches and pains. I really wasn't feeling like yoga this morning but glad I went as it straightened out of few crinkles in the body.
I titled this post roly poly but I'm not talking about the pudding, I'm talking about what happened to me after overbalancing on these steps.
I was squatting on the fourth step from the top while pulling weeds and over I went. I tried to stop myself from falling but to no avail. I'm absolutely fine though, a slight graze on my left elbow, a few bruises on my back and of course my dignity....just a bit dented. It's nice to know that at 49 I still bounce. :)
Here are a few images of the autumn garden. There isn't much flowering, the summer annuals are finished and some of the roses are having a last little spurt before they shut down for winter. The fuchsias are good value though and flower through all the seasons which is nice. It's also the reason I have so many of them in the garden.

|Our very small crop of raspberries. The bugs sucked the sap out of the plants in summer and destroyed the fruit. A little autumn harvest is better than none.|
|My gardening companions yesterday and those naughty steps. (Mum, the word naughty is in there just for you!) :)|
Wishing all a very lovely day/evening and thank you for stopping by to read my ramblings.
