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

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. 

Good evergreen hedge plant?

I love Mock Orange (Philadelphus) too, love the perfume, but the Original Poster wants an evergreen hedge.

Good morning all   We have sunshine here in Norfolk!!!  but clouds over to the west 

I shall be leaving here at lunchtime and heading to SIL's to stay with her and niece so I'm local to Nut and will travel to Barnsdale with her. I will have my phone with me to check in, but it's a real faff to post with it, so I probably won't be around much until Saturday PM.  OH will be here on hedgehog feeding, slug murdering and plant watering duty.

I'm usually quite phlegmatic about slugs, but my Pak Choi is taking a long while to recover 

Punkdoc - have a brilliant time at Glasto - we shall be thinking of you - looks like the weather's going to be fine for you.

Anybody coming over this way to Latitude?

Definitely shut, and the one in the garage and the freezer - all tight - well, as soon as I got the tonic out of the fridge and the ice out of the freezer they were tight shut
