Good morning Punkdoc    Isn't it a lovely morning 

I still wake at going to work time - but that's ok in the summer at least.  

I queried this Bank Holiday thing with HR when I retired,  I explained that I was retiring from work, not from Bank Holidays, and that I still needed them .............

Now known as Pseudofumaria lutea - ....l.

Is it indeed?  It'll take me a  while to catch on to that - I still do my shopping in pounds and ounces 

A few plant id's please

In the original post Mike asked us to let him know what we grow in our gardens to aid him in some research he's doing - so those who've contributed have done it in the spirit of being helpful - not boasting.   

Of course there's no compulsion to take part, but I do think it's unkind to make judgements about the people who have responded to Mike's request. 

There are (believe it or not ) threads that I rarely or never contribute to, for various reasons, but I wouldn't dream of criticising those who do. 

As for feeling it's like showing off to post pics of our garden - I don't feel like that -there are far too many shortcomings in my garden for it to be showing off - but there are times when I'm so chuffed with something I just want to share it - sometimes I grab OH's hand and drag him to look at it - sometimes I grab my camera and share it with you lot

No I've not got a PM reply box either - I'd not noticed the connection between the big adverts and the reply box disappearing - we'd better let Daniel know on Tuesday. We can use this email address
