Just saying hello

Hi all, new here, but not new to forums (oh no !). Just popped in here to say hello.

I am now semi retired (from the electronics and computer trades). We live in the W.Midlands in a small bungalow in the countryside (in a village called Malpas). I have been a "gardener" at every place I have lived, but am no expert. However I hope to be able to share some of my experiences as well as ask questionsimage

Looking forward to talking to you all,

John (and the other half, Gill)

    Hi John and Gill, nice to see you here.
