  • My fault - I'm afraid anything to do with Brexit puts me straight into a downward spiral.  I should have realised the TIC as well as putting my specs on to look at Papi's photo :(

    I think the negativity, prejudice and anger behind Brexit was at least partly responsible for wilting foliage on a mature Japanese Maple in my back garden last summer ...

    Acers are Japanese, right? Like Honda, Nissan, Panasonic, Sony... #justsaying

    I totally disagree with @themanfromvolantis . The ban on invasive species is not ludicrous, it's a good thing.
