Hurray....!



The First of Many...

"Boats on the Bay"



...well at least I hope so...
managed to work out the photoshop routine for this...
...it only took me all afternoon !


Some pics from the Bay.



I took these this week on one of those soft, still autumn days that I love.


.
I like this grass ....but it has swamped Grange...and now it is "over grass"...not "over sand"!
We need the sand for the children to play on.


harbour wrack...

...lime and cherry...two trees in the street getting ready for the big shut down...

(still playing around with editing and trying to get my own style!...it works sometimes I think!)

what are these?




We always try to have some pumpkins grown for the five grand girls.



This however is a pic from a couple of years ago!

We planted ...yes...well we thought that we had planted pumpkins...


so when the potter went looking for them ...as the time is drawing nigh for pumpkin celebrations!...



... looky look!!...ornamental gourds...well would you believe it...must have bought the wrong packet of seeds.
Still I have wanted a basket of these again for a while...
...I grew them a few years ago and then didn't seem to get them to germinate...weather too cold...weather too wet...weather too dry...you know the usual gardeners' reasoning!


...lots and lots of gourds...


Sadly ...no "turk's caps"...maybe the weather is to blame for that!
