The vegetation on Vancouver Island is looking like that now. Thank you Ron, it's making me feel at home.

When you think of it Britain would be a dull looking place if it wasnt for all the foreign trees, shrubs and flowers that we have imported.
We woudnt even have had any spuds if it wasnt for Sir Walt.

We have that tree albeit a young one..(Rhux)
growing in a pot..I believe not everyone likes them because of the suckers,but in a pot it's controlled..I love it especially this time of year,it looks like it's lit up with its beautiful colours..thank you Ron.

I always think of this time of the year as Summer's parting gift - all the golds and reds to brighten up the days ahead for a short while.

Beautiful foliage. i used to work with a girl who was originally from Cumbria, she went to New England in the Fall but said she didn't know why she had bothered, it's so beautiful over here.

Has anyone ever been more deserving of a knighthood than Walter?
Nelson. Churchill. Chris Hoy !

We do have Cadbury smash Mick.

For Walter's pains after bringing the spud and 'baccy' to England and Ireland he was be-headed for allegedly conspiring against James 1st ! That's all the thanks he got for changing the eating habits of the nation - and the smoking habit as well!

Blow the Cadbury's Smash, everyone....frozen mash is fabulous and no trouble. Just do in the microwave, then add butter and hot milk....fabulous, and tastes exactly like the real thing with very little trouble! Veronica, I love your "Summer's Parting Gift"....I love Autumn and all that it brings with it....the colours, the toadstools and the darkening evenings. I wish my Abram back-yard was as lovely as the p-a-d one!

Must say I didn't know about frozen mash!
I'm used to making my own -it's the grandkid's favourite with sausages-especially Lincolnshire sausage!

Sorry to have to inform you Irene, but I'm afraid I'll have to forego your upcoming microwaved frozen mash and toadstool evening soirée, due to a previous engagement with a fish and chip supper in Earle St. The real thing tastes exactly like the real thing an' all.
Best regards. . Ozymandias .

Irene I cant believe your into frozen mash when you live such an old fashioned life style.
