Tried to post the below as comment on Mary's posting. No luck so seeing if it will show here.

I hope your Dad gets better soon Jacinta.

Mary that is a great list . I planted lots of bulbs this year Daffodils, Tulips, Alliums , IRis and others. I have no record of the names just picked some on colour and others because there was a big bag at a reasonable price!!

I have been without my Laptop for almost two weeks and dislike using the ipad for posting so have not been here much. Today having retrieved the laptop I was thinking of some venture that might keep the site active during the darker days. It would be good if we all could make some suggestions.

One I thought of just to start the ball rolling, but it may not appeal, is as follows.

If we each took a plant of some variety and researched the background/history to it, growing conditions, pros and cons, etc. We would all learn a lot about various chosen plants . I love mooching around google and finding out about plants but it may not appeal to others. So have a think about alternative ways to keep us all in touch and hopefully get non regular members to join in.

That is a good idea, Elizabeth, because I think we all have been introduced to new plants on this site. Sorry to have missed you on Tuesday evening, a very good speaker.

Great idea, Elizabeth. I think now that people know there will be a new site, they're possibly just waiting for that before posting journals again. Thanks for your good wishes for Dad. :)
