Your knowledge was never doubted,your manner of giving advice was,as has been pointed out many times recently.

From you starting this thread which is only a repetition of how the comments went on other threads is clear you don,t get it.

If you choose to leave the forum,so be it.

Morning all,

Beautiful arrangement Andy,colours pick up the seats perfectly.

Yesterday was windy ,but very hot in patches,sat out watching Morris men after visiting a classic car event,got a bit sunburnt was very glad of my strawberry and cream ice cream.

Lucky hedgehogs in your garden Dove .....a special biscuit made just for them,I expect they tell all their friends

Autumn has arrived,with the first of Spetember,the blackberries in the field behind us are ripening well,and I hope tp be out picking some this week to stew with apples from Mums tree.Am also picking the Victoria plums now,a very large crop this year.

My bay is fine but Mums about three miles away in Somerset,is also covered in wasps and small flies.I would estimate over a hundred wasps a couple of days ago.
