Ah - yes, you said on the other thread that it was ones you introduced. What a royal pain  

Hosta - you've put me to shame. I've done b***er all since I got home from work 

Almost no cooking here either doc - pizza for me and little fairy 

Tennis is mainly rained off too. Good match earlier with Wawrinka vs del Potro. No spoilers from me though

Are your toms outdoors Dove? I think you usually do that don't you?

Perhaps because mine are always undercover they have fewer probs caused by weather or airborne diseases etc.  I've never really thought about it as there's no chance of growing them outside here.

A wee laugh for the rained off!

Yes Ppauper  

We also used to have a customer at work whose surname was Hands. When she ordered anything, she'd give her name and then say - 'as in 'feet'....

I know someone who had neighbours called Sidebottom.

They insisted their name was pronounced 'Siddy  b'tom'  

Mhairi is a fairly well know name here (Gaelic - pronounced Varry) Like gffinch's story, a friend of mine with this name once got grief from a client who insisted her name must be Mhari (pronounced Marry) Wouldn't listen to her when she corrected him.... 

She was well hacked off with him....

a question about buddleia (the butterfly bush)

Good luck Luke. They're among the easiest shrubs to propagate so I'm sure you'll get some to 'take'

Could be The President, Redwing..

But it could be lots of things! So many similar ones that sort of colour 

Name that geranium!

Absolutely correct technical term nut...

My problem is that I hate that colour of wishy washy, birthday cake pink...

Tingly - you're welcome to come and dig up any bits you want from my garden! 

I have the same one - or a similar one- which I inherited here. I keep pulling it out, or banishing it to the bits in the darkest depths of the shed area. It survives any kind of hardship you can offer.

I now mainly replant it in the bin....
