    Sorry for this daft question , just need to clarify that it is only ONE flower from each species that is logged? Have a horrid vision of spending the whole day counting each flower head!!!

    I will give it a go, but a major problem is that I'm not good at naming plants!

    Will see how it goes , suppose I could just count the ones that I can recognise!

    That's right, counting every bloom would get you very cold most years.

    Just take it as a bit of fun, something to work off tonight's excesses.

    Oh for the days of excess Nut. I will be lucky if I am still awake at midnight.

    Oh so true!

    I've kept notes from my previous garden for a good many yrs, but this will only be our 2cnd yr here.

    We've only had 1 proper, if slight, frost even up here so far, but I suspect tonight could change that. I have also cut down stuff, whoops, to save on the work in the NY. J.

    We haven't had a frost yet this winter, and I doubt if we'll have one tonight ... too sheltered and close to the city.
