This is my final post in my Blog,..The End.

As we have now come under the Heading of National Gardening Association,..those of us living in Europe will be made uncomfortable posting when the topic is of a National one,..when its National Garden Day,..National Gardeners Week or National Gardeners Month just to mention three such National events.

While All Things Plants did not stipulate it being an International Site,..nor an Open To All Site,..National Gardening Association means exactly as read,..though people from other Countries are not Barred it will be just not comfortable posting in a National Garden Site.

When National Gardeners Association started way back,..over 40 years ago,..it was not envisaged that the Internet would make gardens from all over the world open to the interest of everyone,..as time passed most people had the foresight to adjust and open to the rest of the world,..however some people remained blinkered and only thought of self instead of looking outside the box.

Conclusion,..being from Europe i no longer fit in with the restrictions of NGA nor like its methods of mixing Politicians and Gardening,..sorry to leave such nice good friends and gardeners.

Sunny weather has ripened many of the fruits on the Mahonia japonica,..must gather the ripened ones before the birds scoff them.

Quandry,..National to me means,.. of a particular Nation,..were i searching to join a Forum and read,.. National Gardening Association,.. i would check to see of which Nation and was it only for members of a specific Nation and plants of a specific Nation because it doesn't feel welcoming or comfortable,..so i am feeling uncomfortable. Thumbs down

I felt very comfortable with ATP,.. All Things Plants Thumbs up

At the start of Autumn last year when leaves fell on my garden pathway i swept up about a bucket full,..threw them behind a rose bush,..today as i was planting a Purple Fennel in that spot i thought i was looking at half a broken birds egg,..lifted it up and surprise surprise it was what i call a Hollyhock Cup,..its what you are left with when you pull a faded Hollyhock bloom from the plant,..there is a small green shoot protruding from the bottom of the cup,..soooooo i planted it in a pot,..should be interesting to see will it grow.

The way it was positioned on the soil........................................When turned over.
