Thanks boys, I feel very humbled.

Wow, that's a whopper Fishy, if I grew that here it would be flat by the morning, did you grow that from seed?

What will simply not thrive for you....

Roses!  Hopefully my Agastache will be good.

I can't grow very good clematis either. I can grow fantastic lupins though, also foxgloves and delphiniums.

Boring, boring rosesN

The one I chopped down yesterday did, they even impaled themselves into OH work boots, and I have spent most of today with a needle picking then out, although I dont think they are actually in there, just made holes in me.

Poison is my favourite, when I was teenage I had a passion for Yardleys Tweed.

RB, you get this lens, that blue ring, which is just a covering for a magnet, you put the ring carefully over the lens on your iPad or phone, they give you a few rings so can use on both, then the lens just magnets itself to the ring. You have to take your iPad or phone out of its case, then you get really up close to what you want to take, and, with a very steady hand, click as normal.

there is also a fisheye lens and a wide angle lens, I don't like either, but for around £5.00 it's good value, not to perfection for the pro, but ok for me to play with.

it would be lovely for you as it wouldn't matter if they were upside down, sideways or anyway

So do I, the ones that dance when you clap are very nice.

echiums are biennials but with a two year cycle inside of one. What do you call that?

The  ones I planted out from seeds last Autumn are now about four ft diameter.

If they survive this winter, and I think they will they will be enormous,

Can't see any point in paying for thongs, they just disappear.!

Steve, look very carefully at laminate flooring, I had some once, I complained so much they came back and laid a nice carpet.
