This is not climate change folk.....this is WEATHER.  There are meteorlogical causes.

Winter will happen.......just a bit  later THIS year.  We will still all sow our seeds according to the season and harvest according to the season.  If this doesn't happen then we really will experience climate change.  This is why we can reliably say to Sunnygardener when he can and when he can't sow his tomato seeds

Interesting pansy.  

I must say that "labels"  are too often used.  I remember talking to someone who had so many labels (what he is, could be etc) applied to him that they did not make sense.....often contradictory.  They certainly did not help him. people often then live up to their labels

An electric scarifier is effective ....prob better than a rake because a rake can be bloomin' hard work quarkrad.  

some scarifiers have height adjustment but be aware you could damage the lawn itself by too low setttings. I would prefer to scarify in autumn and in spring on high setting.

Yes, agree it is fascinating.  Sometimes amusing too as we need to be aware of how literally everything is taken.  Used to do a garden for someone with aspergers too and it was difficult to say the least at times.  However, easing off when confrontation looms, some lateral thinking, seeing when stress is building up, etc., etc., and I have learned an awful lot about myself in the process too.  

Those with aspergers suffer huge frustration frequently....often they are extremely bright or gifted.  

One I have a lot of contact with has trust in me and confides in me....talking  ( listening) is still the best therapy in the world I think.  Don't think many spare the time for this though even the professionals

I know something about autism, esp aspergers.  Support a friend's son now and then and attended a few "classes".  Far more complicated than it seems.  Aspergers is far from rare too.  Helping or working with someone with aspergers requires lots of patience and understanding ......prob good for all of us to do 

HELLO FORKERS!
