    I've seen a few yellowing leaves as well this week, plus a couple of flocks of geese honking overhead in the evenings - autumn's definitely on the way.

    I don't actually dislike autumn and winter cathidaw. In fact, autumn often finds me out and about with my camera capturing the wonderful colours.

    Yes, Autumn can be very colourful with the reds , rusts and evergreens, still some flowers in the garden and tubs looking cheerful. last year I planted a new white peony, which is just getting established, this year no flower but the leaves have gone an attractive red, with with greyish white on the back. I am hoping it will flower next year.

    Some end of summer pictures, Didn't take a lot this year.
    I'm afraid the Hydrangea, didn't do well at all this year in the long hot summer.

    I spent a lovely afternoon in a pub garden today. It was pleasantly warm until about 4PM when I decided to retire to the inside bar.

    Margaret, your piccies show up just fine.

    Even with the dogs we've had, we still get hedgehogs. But we do have plenty of slugs and snails.

    Current dog isn't quite sure what to make of hedgehogs. She runs at them but then comes to an abrupt halt when they don't run off and she actually reaches them.

    I have been with BULB for about 6 months.They were much cheaper than any one then.
    Look on Martin Lewis site for up todate energy suppliers..
    Good luck.

    I'm electric only, refuse to use direct debits and want quarterly bills. I can't beat the Co-op, despite trying very hard.

    Try looking on u-switch

    I can't remember who it is, but there is one site that you sign up with and they are continually shifting you between suppliers to keep you on the best tariff.

    One thing to be aware of though, is that in the event of a problem many of these companies will only deal with the named account holder. My brother (lives with mum) has had problems in the past in sorting niggles out. Mum is 90 and often not capable of using the phone herself for various reasons.

    Thanks Cathi and Reebonk[


    I was looking at the Co-op , and their tariff is certainly lower that what I am paying at present under Scottish Power.
    But I was reading that the Co-op will be putting their prices up.

    I shall look into both, choices.

    I'm boring you again!! but I hada baby squirrell on my bird table today nibbling a very hard batch. it only moved when I got near and dived off into my fig tree,bouncing off and up the garden.About 6" long plus a very bushy tail.I'll have to keep feeding now as it is so small it wont survive the winter. The nest is in next door's laurel tree.
    I left cat biscuits for it on the bird table tonight.

    This is what I couldn't remember the other day Margaret. I know nothing about them so before signing up do some research. Look After My Bills
