THESE NEW PART TWO THREADS NORA

Posted: 05/02/2016 at 07:16

They show Nora's name 'cos she's the one that physically 'did it' - she didn't type her name in, that's just what the software recorded.  She has done her best to attribute the person who started the thread.  It's possible that's all that can be done without totally re-writing the software.

Just for the record, I don't feel proprietorial about threads I've started ... it may just be me, but once a thread has reached one thousand posts I feel it's taken on a life of its own ... don't really give a stuff whether it has my name on it or not   .... there's not a prize ............................ is there?

Morning peeps

So glad that Mighty Atom is being Mighty Dove. I have a group of Magnet which is outshining the others at the moment.

Rotten feeling Pdoc ...hope you are a bit better today

No gardening this weekend, too busy with Chicklets (), but next weekend will be the start of my 2016 season.....must buy some seed compost, and the great tidy up will begin.  Will use the "how to eat an elephant" method

Oooh, a good name for it's offspring, if by any chance I get an interesting cross   and if I recognise the offspring as being offspring ............ if you get what I mean ....



Cornflowers

Posted: 05/02/2016 at 06:58

Edd - the clue is in the name - cornflower - cornfields are cultivated annually and wheat/barley/oats are sown and grow up straight and tall, leaving bare earth around them which is where the cornflowers and other annuals of cultivated soil grow.

This picture of wheat stubble shows how much bare soil there is in a cornfield


 The bare soil between the wheat is where the annual cornfield flowers such as cornflowers and poppies grow.

 

Meadow flowers are usually perennials and grow amongst grass which spreads out and makes a close-growing mat with no bare soil between the grass - they have to be much tougher than the flowers that grow in the cornfields.
