Hi Brian, I think the problem arose because by starting a new thread there was no way anyone knew you were responding to a query which was 5 weeks old  - unfortunately this site is targetted by Spam advertising from time to time which can really impact on the usability of the site and is very irritating - I hope you'll understand where we were coming from.

Today I shall tidy the house, rake some leaves, make some lists, take pie (homemade) out of the freezer for supper to make room for some Christmas baking being done later in the week - and I've got an overwhelming urge to do some drawing - first time for ages and ages - I'm finding ME again

Before I left I scattered foxglove seeds all over the grounds - there've never been any there before - I wonder if anyone will notice and put two and two together .........
