Days 269 to 272

Four more 365 photos and we are nearly at the end of September.
Day 269 of 365
As it is nearly October I thought it was about time I took some cuttings from my geraniums (pelargoniums).  I do this each autumn and overwinter them indoors.  I am in the process of slowly sorting out the patio pots and baskets ready for winter.
Day 270 of 365
Friday was booster day for the kitties.  I have to fold them into their travel baskets when it is time to go and when we get to the vet's I have to drag them out! :) Poor Ella has got to go back again to have her teeth cleaned and it's going to cost an arm and a leg!!  That's me on bread and cheese for a month!  Good job cheese is my favourite food! :)
Day 271 of 365
My Husband and I popped into Winchester for a spot of shopping and for our lunch we had Cornish pasties - traditional for my OH and vegetable for me.  We also visited the City Mill and walked around the outside of the old walls.
Day 272 of 365
Such a lovely autumn day, the sun was shining and my Husband said that we should make the most of it.  So off we went to Basildon House and Park, a National Trust property.  First we had a picnic in the gardens and then walked three miles through the parkland, before visiting the house.
We seem to have been out a lot this month so I must catch up with a few posts, as we have visited some lovely NT properties and seen an exhibition of some gorgeous 1920's dresses.

Thanks Jooles! :) Geranium cuttings are so easy - just cut below a bud, pull off lower leaves and stick in a pot. It's as simple as that. Best wishes, Pj x
