I love the green and white foliage. It really gives some character to the garden.

OK, hang on, somehow we lost the banner! Blinking I went to go edit the title since it's actually Euphorbia Ascot Rainbow and not Tasmanian Tiger




and it disappeared! Some kind of bug because the calendar schedule still shows the date slot filled with your banner @Dave, help!

It's not in the calendar and I can't see it anywhere else. We currently have no banner set for 4/21.

I'm looking into this right now.

It got "unapproved" somehow but I'm not sure how that happened. I marked it approved again and it is apparently all back and normal. I'll investigate further and try to figure out what caused that.

Whew! At first I thought that I accidentally selected the drop down delete button. But I opened another one in edit mode to check and I would have had to open that drop down menu and select it, which I didn't do. The only thing I did was edit the banner title and then hit the Save button. Shrug!

Oh and when I said it was in the calendar queue, I meant the one where you select the date, that was still filled in with SongofJoy's name and the date.

I see in the logs that it went exactly as you're describing.

Very, very odd. I'll continue my investigation in the morning. Rest easy knowing you didn't do anything wrong, and I'll figure it out. Smiling

It's one of my all time favorite euphorbias @Natalie, and this banner shows it off so well, didn't want to loose it!

They look like lovely tropical island umbrellas to me, and what a pleasant thought it brought to mind! Lovey dubby Thanks @SongofJoy !

Two cheers for the sharpshooting update and re-capture of the banner. Hurray! Another apt reminder of all that @dave and @Calif_Sue do for everyone's benefit behind the scenes!!
