Farewell to Snowy

Well there was a really good ending to' The Snowy Saga' as his owners were finally found and on monday Peter and I made the journey back with him to his home in Penwortham
. As soon as he was out of his carrier he found his way to a favourite spot underneath the table and started purring as loudly as can be.... Home at last!
So the summer adventure for Snowy was at an end and here life gets back to normal with old Bebe happy to see the back of the' great white beast' that took over his domain.

Our holiday is already feeling like a distant memory but we had such a good time visiting a lot of wonderful places, The Lost Gardens of Heligan being just one.It amazes me that even though you think you have seen all there is to see in a much  visited place you can always find more!

I have been enjoying watching Autumn Watch again and here in our garden there is a distinct feel of Autumn with the leaves turning and the birds feeding like mad now on the various foods left for them. This morning  I spotted Robin,Tits Sparrows ,Goldfinch and Wood pidgeon.
The other day there was a real racket going on and the feeders were covered in long tailed tits .

At the weekend we took a trip up to Wray nr Kirkby Longsdale to Bridge  House Farm tearooms and plant centre . We had read about it in the Lancashire magazine and it was a lovely find. We enjoyed a great lunch and on nice days you can sit sipping your latte overlooking the river.
On our way back stopped off at a Ashton Hall garden centre nr Lancaster where we found an apple festival going on and also a display of raptors.
In the garden I have managed to get in all of the bulbs, that I bought ,while the weather has been good and given it all a general tidy up.I also saved any plants that are tender by putting them in the greenhouse so at least now when the weather turns chilly I need not worry about them but can  enjoy being in the warm!
Besides I must start scrapbooking my America trip as the stuff has been sitting around quite long enough!
