Back from visiting friend who has a bad back. She's elderly and has trouble walking.

Charity BBQ (orphanage in Sierra Leone) on Saturday, shopping for it tomorrow morning. Hope the weather is OK on Saturday. Have had a decent amount of rain today and now it's a lot cooler, 22°.

Gosh, as bad as that!

I had some unpleasant PMs when I said I go to church, but I also had some nice PMs.

It looks like a common pipistrelle to me.

Delete Post And Other Issues

I agree that the edit facility here is not that good and disappears too fast. Nora from the GW team did explain why once, but I didn't really agree with her. I post on another forum which has a better edit and you can delete after posting as well, if you've made a mess of your post. I also don't like the fact that on this forum says that you've edited. The other forum doesn't, much better. Why do you want everyone to know when you've edited because you've made a mistake?

I like to look at profiles too. I imagine many people don't even know about them or how to look at them. You click on the pic by your name. Maybe some people like to stay private.

But, Mike, you used to have a profile, I think it was quite long, but it's gone. You don't have a profile anymore. Perhaps you should update it.

I sometimes find profiles useful, I look at them from time to time.

Mike used to have a profile but it seems to have disappeared, maybe when the new format of the forum came in.

Mike, I agree with some others that your grammar and punctuation are a bit strange. It doesn't flow and makes you seem abrupt which can make people get the wrong end of the stick. A lot of your sentences aren't really sentences. It's a shame because I don't think you are really like the way your posts come over. I know you loved your wife very much and she died, Valerie, I think. I think people are fierce with you because of your style of writing and sometimes I think you like to provoke because you like to get a response.

Pruning honeysuckle

Posted: 30/08/2017 at 10:55

It looks very bare on the lower part, has it had enough water as it is close to the wall, where it can be dry, or have you pruned it all off?  Don't cut the flowers off! Honeysuckles are pruned in late summer after they have finished flowering. Old plants that have got straggly or full of dead bits can be cut down to about 2 feet tall in the spring. They will regrow and be re-generated. They are pretty vigorous and grow back.
