Was it better or worse than dropping it on your toe?

Rogue plant taking over garden!

Looks like phlox to me too - one of those really useful plants, usually reliable and of little interest to slugs and snails.

Lift the ones you don't want in the autumn, pot them up and give them to friends

Wonky - somehow I'd never viewed your father as 'Papa Womble' ... gives me a whole new angle on him

BL, thank goodness you've got the leak fixed - hope the bill's not tooooooooooo bad ((hugs)).

Wintersong - who wants a sensible car?  Not me, and certainly not Verdun   I shall be visiting Ma today with my top down

Pauline - been there, done that ... then I went to art school as a mature student - I got my driving confidence back by driving loads of 18 year old lads around Ipswich with them navigating - they knew which lane I should be in etc 'cos they were all learning or had just learned to drive   But BSM do a refresher course for people who don't drive much or who've lost confidence - have a look at it.  Might be fun to do it

That's somewhere I've been meaning to go, but I've never been - I'm up for it

and I'm pretty flexible datewise.

I'm also planning to take Wonky to East Ruston very soon - not sure quite when - she's never been there and I've never been there at this time of year.  We have to fit it around her work rota but when we have a date, anyone's very welcome to join us

Any well recommended Tree Surgeons?

I don't think this was a real query - the poster's website reveals him to be a feelance copy-writer who raises the profiles of clients' businesses by posting links to their websites on various vaguely related forums. 

Check out all his posts - they contain links to businesses in the area where he works.

Not paying for advertising appears tantamount to theft; not to mention exploiting the good nature of members of this forum who try to help.

Not a way to improve his clients' business.
