This is really interesting- mind you it is still very hard to get my head round who is who.
On dating sites I use honey or lovely or any other stupid name but always with 71449 tagged on the end. Before you ask- 7 my fave number, 2X7=14 and 7X7=49 so 7 14 49- yes I am a Maths teacher!!
This forum really is a godsend especially in this dreadful weather
Nutcutlet does sound like an endearment. I like GG's photo with her cute dogs, it suits her name. I hope you don't think, Verdun, that I thought it was you who caused the upset. I read it all and thought you were the innocent wronged party.

Well said Verdun. I've been made to feel very welcome and perhaps the lousy weather and therefore lack of gardening has meant we've all been talking lots of rubbish, getting to know each other and having a laugh which has been really nice. I need to go to bed now. Goodnight all. Tomorrow might be warmer
Loving this thread as I did the equilivant one on the old beeb forum.
My name comes from a Camellia in my garden whose name I could never remember and came over with me from the beeb site. Never tried to use my real name - Janet, but by the sounds of it, I might have needed Bev to help me with the numbers needed to follow it.
My Camellia usually flowers in April - possibly later this year... I'll post a picture or change my pic.
Guess my user name could conjure up someone always in a rush who whizzes along getting everything done at break neck speed, sorry to disappoint, I'm more laid back and reclining than the name suggests.
To cut to the chase, one evening whilst reminiscing with family, saying how grand life had turned out, we got to talking about what we were like as children. I'm the youngest of five and apparently when learning to talk couldn't pronounce my name, so would announce to everyone, much to their amusment, I was called Loomer. At about the same time as this family gathering, people were just starting to e-mail but not always using their real name, the internet, me thinks hadn't been invented then, we had a very amusing evening saying what each other should call themselves on e-mail.
When I first signed up on a garden forum, didn't know much about gardening and Loomer was not a name I was about to sign up asso thought of something which rhymed, Bloomer wasn't even in the stakes, so it was Zoomer.

Think all the camellias up here will flower well this year as it was so wet last summer for the buds forming.They're beautiful- another one for me to add to this garden once I get it under way. Have to go and move all my books now as the man coming later to do the sky tv. At least I can record all the things I'd like to see when I've fallen asleep on settee Have a good day everyone and stay warm
I love Cornwall, had a wonderful holiday there 2 years ago. Bought lots of plants, but had to be careful when choosing as we have limestone with clay pockets and very little topsoil. It can be very cold in winter and very hot in summer. No acid loving plants for me! I have a dwarf rhododendron in a pot because I love them. When we lived in Kent I had lots.
There was a song called Come into the garden Maud, and a chap i went out with thought he was beoing clever when he found out that i was a florist put the 2 together and now there is a whole load of people that call me Maud.
dmball, I think Pentillie is a great name. Much more interesting than 'Surbiton' where I was born and which has a distinct lack of castles!
Many thanks for all the suggestions. The artist formerly known as Nigelcoad is now punkdoc
