Good Evening FORKERS

Also sorry belatedly to fidgetbones about your dahlia. Our posts crossed while I was playing around with language puns and stuff.

serious now: That is a real sickener when you've put so much time and energy into a plant. I know as a relative beginner that after potting up about 250 plugs I got so much faster and more fluent I forgot that, all said and done, plants are still tender, fragile lifeforms. One slip in concentration and it's gone! 

We are all working in a risky environment - like driving.

Perhaps there ought to be a gardening test before we can wield a trowel!

Sorry about the language - blame it on the spellcheck.

Watch the spellcheck fb - you should see the weird stuff my iPad throws up when I don't expect it.

I really do have to re-edit sometimes. (The last sentence originally came out as:

'I freaky do have to rare-sit some sometimes.')

What's the weather like in your area?

Been in Northants since 2pm. Quite pleasant temp, bit of a breeze, sun was shining until I started this post a minute ago. Bit overcast now but clouds are high.
