How long does it take you?

I find that with brains there's infinite storage, it's the filing and retrieval that causes problems - just like with the DSS

OL, I think you'll find there's all sorts of gardening stuff sinking into your head at the moment - it's just the recall that can be dodgy when you're really busy with children, work etc.

 I bet you'll find that when you're my age all sorts of stuff you're learning now without knowing it, will just trip off your tongue

I agree with Dove. ..... 

You see, I've not posted yet but everyone on here's so clever that we know what the other's going to say 

And I agree with Quercus rubur and Nut, a bit of Latin from school means that the Latin names actually mean something to me (usually) and lots of listening to GQT and watching GW since the days of Percy Thrower, and of course, lots of reading of books etc.  means that the Latin names come to me just as easily if not more easily than the common names. 

Of course, I may well look it up to check the spelling!!!

Morning Chicky - the BBC weatherman said yesterday that the weather will be fine for Glastonbury - he confused me - they're not usually that certain more than a week ahead!

Oooh What lovely news AWB - 

Good morning Fidget  

what is this on my tomato leaves

Posted: 19/06/2014 at 06:39

Hi Peanuts

I think that might be where the leaves have been splashed and then the sun has shone brightly on them.  

It doesn't look like anything I'd panic about.
