Good morning all 

Fantastic evening evening at the theatre last night watching amazing contemporary dance 

Now the sun is shining and it looks like a gardening day

As my friend has only recently been 'hacked and attacked' I'm very aware of the dangers, which are far greater than many of us are aware.  

It's really really lovely that Mike trusts us - but there are Odd Bods and Malevolent Beings out there who make it their business to cause problems - even on a Gardening Forum.

Mike - a lovely thought - but I do think that it's risky - this forum isn't just read by us but also by nasty types all over the world who have other games to play.  A friend's account on a similar forum was hacked and all sorts of awful things happened to his other internet activities - if you give your home address you're exposing yourself to other risks - every time you mention that you're going somewhere THEY know that your home will be empty - burglary in your home would be a horrid experience.

Can I suggest that instead of giving your name and phone number out on the board, you give it by PM to one or two trusted people - then if we want to get in touch with you we can PM them and they can pass it on - then you'll be able to sleep safe in your bed and we won't worry that you're exposing yourself to risks.

It works this end - beautiful pink azelea, behind it a high wall or hedge, a pine tree and a wonderfully deep blue sky

Honestly, some relatives!  They just let you down don't they? 


I wonder if these people could help you

Well, the rain has stopped - everything is very wet - even the frogs look surprised at the amount of water dripping off the long grass onto their heads.  

Remember I said that there were harlequin ladybirds 'coupling' on the rose bush the other day?  Well, they're still there and they're hoovering up the aphids - hardly any left

I think that's a Yucca, just about to bloom
