A Starry starry night ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last night was a sky full of twinkling stars . I was up till nearly 3.am and I kept watching looking for a shooting star. I dont know what it is about them but forever we seem to have deemed them lucky. Did I see one well no but the sky was very beautiful all those other stars and worlds we all dream of.

T, oday is beautiful sunny so Good Morning all hopefully it will warm up a bit by lunch time because at the moment it is still chilly and autumnal . Did everyone watch strictly ? I felt it was a good show though Feltsy was not presented well.

I hope you all have a good day xxxxgins

  • Hi GIns I was in my garden looking up at the stars last night and could see the milky way too and trying to find planets..i could sit there for hours looking at the stars if my body would let me.had a lovely but painful dog walk this morning and I like days like this sunny tho cool.its definitely autumn and I cant believe I have plants in my garden just coming out in bloom. sure they should flower earlier than this??do they not know its the end of September.?

  • I think the garden is in a muddle anbuma, my penstemon a are still going great guns as are my petunias and cosmos and my jasmine is flowering a second time. I think that very late start to the spring got everything in a right old muddle hehe

  • i have gladioli.mombretia(?)antirrhinums,sweet peas and penstemon to name but a few.oh! and some tomatoes too.

  • I think the plants have been fooled into a return of summer I have a clematis that has just started again which is very curios. Silly plants they will soon get cold and start hiding away. I love it. the light is wonderful at this time of year and the color hits you with brilliant warm hues like the middle of a bonfire. My house is covered in Virginia Creeper and I made every one stop cutting it down until it turned red now it is amasin :) :P I loves it :) xxgins

  • Morning, what a lovely thought to think of other worlds and what they deem to be. I love looking at the night sky and imagine all sorts of wonderful things. Starry starry night, has now put the song into my head.....paint your palette blue and grey.......will be with me all day now lol.

  • Love looking at a starry sky too. It is also a nice sunny day here in Dublin, but I am having a lazy Sunday morning, waiting for meds to kick in, will shower soon and then hubby and I will walk the dogs :)

    Have a lovely Sunday everyone x

  • I hope you have a lovely walk with the dogs Mary, it's just brightening up here in Devon, so I might take a stroll later :-)

  • Oh Mary I have wonderful memories of Dublin and consuming Guinness and bay prawns lovely. I have relatives I never knew I had in Dublin who I met once when I was seventeen and never again, Isn't life strange sometimes LOL

    Have a lovely walk!

  • Thanks Foggy and gins, Life is strange gins and it's a small world :) ...Really enjoyed our walk(s). we walked the doggies first as they are old now and only need a short walk, left them back home and after they had their biscuit and were ready for a nap, we headed out in the car to the coast (about 15 -20 mins drive) had a lovely half hour walk, nice and easy and then went to a local pup for roast dinner :)

    Then home to relax. Hope it was a relaxing day for you too.

  • Hi Mary i have an elderly dog(11.5)and he will still walk about 5 miles in the mornings.he decides where he wants to go.i wish I could keep up with him!!and he will only sleep fro a couple of hours after.

  • Wow! don't think I could do 5 miles! Two of mine have disc issues and one has a heart condition so a short walk once or twice a day suits them:)

  • it Is stop/start from the time we leave home as he stops every few yards to sniff around where other dogs have gone or to pee himself.then i get dragged in two directions one wants to go one way and the other wants to go the opposite.most ive been out for is two hours and sometimes that includes a run around a park.its the only exercise I get and it gets me out the house even if it a struggle.how many dogs do you have??

  • Three small one's,Cavalier king charles' two I have since puppies and one rescue I got 5 yrs ago. I can only walk two at a time when hubby is in work, so week days I get to go 2-4 times, walking one and then two :)

    What kind of dogs do you have?

  • I think those of us lucky enough to live in the countryside are so lucky because we don't get any if the light pollution that stops some more urban dwellers from seeing the wonders of the night sky. We had a massive meteor shower a few weeks back. I can't look up because of my neck, so I put down a ground sheet and a blanket and lie there completely absorbed in the awe and wonder of the universe :-)

    My garden is doing funny things, as in my reply to anbuma, no doubt any minute now we will get a frost and everything will be shocked back to normality .

  • ditto apart from the garden and unfortunately light pollution :(

    I do however get to witness lovely sunsets every evening with very beautiful coloured skies :)

  • am in north Northumberland and semi rural town.,i can see the stars from my back garden as no street lights and cos my older dog likes to sleep in the garden til quite late I sometimes sit out there with him.

  • How lovely Anbuma it is quite comforting isn't it xxgins
