Thankfully not humid here today Verdun  

Today I am wondering why my morning glory is not growing with the same pace as the bindweed in my garden  It is tempting (but not that tempting) to put some bind weed there as well coz the white flowers are quite pretty  guess I just want an Instant Garden

It is definitely aimed at the total novice, which probably doesn't account for most forum members  Novices need help and programmes too 

I find both presenters rather irritating but will watch the series anyway.

Even people that have no interest in gardening deserve some kind of garden..... and they did get quite a low maintainance one

Mine does Lesley, but that's coz it's true   To be accurate, she tells me what good condition it is in, and how easy it is to comb . . . . which is great as it is 100% bleach blonde  That said, I do treat it well so I'm not surprised

That's awful Lizzie  What a horrid way to finish your holiday 

Finally I have sweet pea flowers in my garden . . . well I did, I picked them and now they are in the house  My first ever! 

Quick question though, does anyone else have cyclamen growing at the moment? Was surprised to see I have

They sound quite ouchie Runny  Never even knew they could grow inward 

You can't be a Guide Runny, but you could be a leader 

Is this an arrogance?

Afternoon  I did get up eventually  Guess camp took it out of me more than I thought. . . . or is it just the luxury (?) of not having to get up on a Monday morning 

Thought you might like a piccie of our camp

Our campfire

And a brekkie the girls cooked one of us

It was very tasty 

Distorted fuschia

Could it be aphid damage? Are there little black specks in the damaged leaves and ants on the plant? It looks like the kind of damage I get from them, Not on a fuschia though so I might be wrong
