Hi, Flowerlover

I don't have any of those myself, but have taken a look at them and they do seem to be very promising......I particularly like 'Carris', a beautiful deep red HT.

They seem to be Harkness introductions too, which bodes well as they are leaders in their field.

Moi?   No, as far as I understand it's part of its camouflage that helps deter predators, OL.

Whew!

I totally agree, Pansy....no reason at all.

Yviestevie -  it would seem that chips from nearby chip-shops, as well as bread make up much of the offerings.

Whew!

May prove a contentious subject, Pansy, but I visit Bakewell often (was there last Thursday) and have to say the town area around the river is absolutely filthy & smelly with the droppings from numerous birds who obviously see it as a feeding station.

This is because the public deliberately ignore many signposts asking them not to feed the birds for hygiene reasons.

I'm a chicken keeping country boy, btw.

 Had a visit from this little fellow this morning.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning, Forkers.....was going to start a thread about this, then thought 'maybe not' on a gardening forum. So I hope you don't mind me using 'Forkers'  to express my sadness at the news that Robin Williams is dead.....not only dead, but seemingly taken his own life due to depression.

Maybe not to everyone's taste, but he was one of the few people who could induce me into real belly laughs.

RIP, Robin...thanks for the laughs.

Whew!
