    Thanks for the reminder, Dove. I turned the calendar this morning, but then forgot about that when posting the photos.  So, here they are again.

    Top one is the Plumcot blossoms. Hopefully we might get fruit this year (if next door’s goats don’t beat me to it).  The lower photo is a little native flower called Austral Bear’s ear or Cymbonotus preissianus
    Have a good day everyone.

    Lovely photos @Pat E … what a pretty little thing that Bear’s Ear is … smiling in the spring sunshine like our Lesser Celandines. 😊

    Good September morning to all Autumn gardeners!

    @Dovefromabove   Morning cuppa to be sure - can't get motivated without 2!!

    @Pat E lovely photos - your Spring is just around the corner, it will be interesting to see what sort of summer the southern hemisphere is going to have this year as ours was really strange with lots of low temperatures at night and hot days.  Vegetable gardens are perturbed especially tomato plants.  Swimming pools have "turned" and needed constant shock chlorine treatments amongst other things.

    The grape harvest has well begun but poor harvest this year because of the severe frosts in April and an extremely dry and weird summer.  Fires wiped out vineyards around the Narbonne area last month.   With the grape-harvest, come the mosquitoes and the flies.  You can hear the harvesters through the night as the still night air carries the sound easily.

    @Busy-Lizzie   Yes, thank you.   In fact the scan was for OH - routine - went well and he's as fit as a buck rat!!

    @D0rdogne_Damsel   Yes, the best present is family time.  Happy belated birthday to you Charlie.  Back to school tomorrow.  Hope he's happy to go back.  Pencils sharpened.....

    Today's expression:  A la Saint-Loup, la lampe au clou.
                        S'il fait beau, cela durera jusqu'à la Saint Michel (29th Sept)

    Let's hope you have good weather wherever you are.
    Enjoy your day.
    Tui

    Good morning all.
    I'm just about to have my first mug. Must be up in 40 minutes as my new handyman is coming. I hope he can fit the loft ladder and mend the veg garden gate.
