My mind is totally addled today, Verdun  Love your photos . Mine looks a bit of a tip as we haven't managed to finish off the new bed .

Still, Rome wasn't built in a day.

I so hate vine weevils - found one in the conservatory last year in an African violet - had to check everything in there.

Are they suffering from lack of water, Lady G ? I had to water most of my pots today as it's been dry here for nearly a week ( for a change ! )

Failing that I would tip them out and have a look at the roots - see if the dreaded vine weevil has took up residence. I do this every year about this time as the little blighters seem to love mine.

MOB rants

 That should be a good rant. Looking forward to reading the comments.

Nothing really to say on the subject except that I feel a little pity for them. No life.

GG. It was me who made that comment about engaging brain before fingers. The reason being there are certain individuals on this forum who take great delight in causing trouble and and provoking people. They are known as trolls and thrive on attention and are well known on this forum and have in fact, been banned from others.

I consider myself to be a kind and polite person but have no time for such individuals who are hell - bent on causing trouble on what I believe to be a very helpful and friendly forum.

Not so much as a rant but an explanation.

Right - off to feed birds. (Not trolls )
