 A far greater athlete and role model than Gatlin could ever dream of being. Son said today, after being in the same room as Bolt, that he's never seen a human being so coordinated and graceful ... And sooooooo charismatic  ... A remarkable man. 


And with that ... Night night folks ... Sweet dreams

Yes, if you open that photo in a new tab, then zoom in, they look like scale insects to me.  We've had several reports of the blighters on hazels this year.

As you say Nut, the problem  is that beginners don't know what they don't know, and Google poses as omniscient

...  The tenants aren't happy about part of the deposit being retained and have said they "planned to come back and paint ", yeah, AFTER they've handed back the keys???? Really??

Ha, unfortunately not, I just think its a really useful tool that no one really knows about, and can be very useful for things like this.  I use it all the time.

 I think you'll find that lots of people know about it and use it when they're just starting out ... and then after a little while they discover its shortcomings and unreliability, and  they turn to more reliable ways of identifying plants, whether it's via this forum, the RHS or some other forum .
