I have loads, and the windowsill, GH, coldframe shuffle sounds very familiar, but your collection is immense Nut.  I salute you  definitely something to aspire too

Hi Nora, Daniel,

Can i add another issue to your list?  (If its there already then apologies, but I can't see it)

Can we have a list of latest posts like we used to, with 1 line per thread, with its title, who started it, and the date, time and identity of the last poster.  Nothing else is needed.

This them forms the handy "index" page that we all used to glance at to see what was going on, and which bits we wanted to investigate further.

the key bit is one/two lines only per thread, and not much space, so you can see 20ish things at a glance.

This would really improve things for those of is who pop in and out a lot πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Many thanks

Congratulations Yvie - he's adorable😊  So glad he is now doing well - and in his own home too 🏠🏠 

And what a beautiful sunrise Frit - a special sort of pink

Just done my usual GH visit - everything (apart from the sad tomatoes) is really growing away now - lovely what a couple of days sunshine can do.

Hope your day goes as wellas it can Dove ((hugs)).  See if you can find time for a few cartwheels on the beach later too.

Lily - they know about the smilie problem - hopefully it will be a quick fix tomorrow.  Other things might take a bit longer, so we will have to soldier on.  But we'll get there in the end ......fingers crossed.

Pollyanna service resumed from the Chicky corner (with apologies for yesterday's temporary lapse 😊)

Quick (temporary) fix ideas please.

If its a slope you could try some of the campanula portenschlagier (or something like thatπŸ€”) - trails nicely and flowers for a long time.

Or let some trailing lobelia scramble, if you just want an annual fix.

Almost feel sorry for your other half 😏😯

is this loosestrife?

Posted: 05/05/2016 at 21:34

Don't think so iamto.  Loosestrife has more narrow leaves.  I'm afraid I don't know what to suggest it is instead though.
