Excellent news Pansyface.
Community spirit along with widespread horticultural knowledge and willingness to help are the core of these boards and that combination is what makes them so attractive compared to other forums out there.
It is exceedingly wet here with more rain due to start in the next couple of hours and set to last all night again. Not good for sleeping or gardening tho probably good for the garden. The weeds in the beds I haven't got to yet are certainly having a great time and the hostas are enormous now.
Busy - have you had floods your way too? Plenty of basements flooded locally and low roads blocked with silt run off from arable fields where the crops are still to immature to hold the soil. Good indoor cleaning weather we've been having.
WW - have you a gardening club near you? I started one here - meets once or twice a month in the growing season - just so I could chat about plants and gardens with people who don't think it's all muck and madness. Good people and plant swaps too. Never more than a dozen or so at a time except for a special event so maybe manageable for you.
