Think I may have got the tool to work. Yes it worked!

Have arrived home a day early as the hotel had to close as the lake was almost coming in the door! I hope things don't get any worse for them. They were really great , moving peoples' cars for them and making arrangements for them and so on and trying to keep the water out and move stuff upstairs at the same time. It was just an adventure for us but I really feel sorry for people who have to deal with all that in their homes.

Did some more cutting and shredding yesterday. There was quite a bit of holly and the shredder did NOT like it so it was a case of one bit of holly and one bit of something else to help it along--a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down kind of thing. I find you really just have to jolly the shredder along or else it just jams up.

Did what i hope is the last of the leaves and then I spotted a couple of little irises in flower. I only planted them a month or so ago. Is this normal?

Glorious day here. Afraid I'm not as committed to the garden as most of you so went off with a few friends fo r a cycle in west Cork--Timoleague, Clonakilty, Courtmac etc. More tiring than gardening!

Wet all day here so no work done in garden . Hope tomorrow is better as millions of leaves fell while I was away. I noticed that two of the bargain busy lizzies I bought in a mixed container a while back and potted up and brought in are looking good so took their photo--anything rather than do housework!
