Good morning all - think I slept through the party  

Glad you found us Bill  - as KEF said, kind thoughts from us to you and your family.

Much too wet here to walk this morning, and if we get a dry spell I shall be doing the Garden Birdwatch Count so I'll let myself off the walk this morning - besides that chaise longue's not the most comfortable of beds Verdun - my hip is sore this morning

My understanding is that once a plant has been treated with a neonicotinoid all pollen and nectar that the plant produces in the future will be dangerous to bees as it damages their immune system so they succumb to a virus that they usually aren't susceptible to.
