Went down the shady end of the garden today - for obvious reasons.

Put ASSS jollop on arms  but foolishly didn't bother with my legs - two bites.image

In London. Keen but lazy.

     I'm almost afraid to ask what that is..... 

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I think it is Avon Skin So Soft, famous on this site for deterring insects - don't put it on the plants, though.

     Yes they do. If you can find a representative it's cheaper that way. Elder berry leaves are good, rub them​ over the skin.

    Aloe Vera gel works for me if I get bitten - but only if I haven't scratched image
