Very funny. What's the point? Hasn't posted since last June.

I for one will be sorry to see this site go. I have enjoyed my time here and made a few friends along the way.

I like the rambling style that goes off on tangents. I also like the idea that their are knowledgeable gardeners on here that can, when needed come up with answers. If I just wanted questions answered I would turn to an encyclopedia.

Yesterday a friend who had arranged for some tree work to be done for us, called around to see if it had been done. We ended up chatting for quite a while about waiting lists on the NHS! That's life, that's how friends communicate.

I have not been around much lately - too many other things going on. But I came back today to look for the link to an Irish birdwatching site that Tagwex gave last year. Are they doing it again, cos I'd love to boast that we have a 'resident ' buzzard now!

Earlier this year Dave finally persuaded me to go over to the dark side and join Facebook. OK there is a lot of cxxp on there. But since I joined I have got back in touch with some cousins I haven't heard from in years and made some very good friends. I have joined an Irish gardening forum, very nice folks, but still not a 'serious' gardening site.

I'll keep popping in 'til they close the door, and until then, you know where to find me - well Tagwex does!!! Shocked Laughing BTW Tagwex, those sheds are history, well a BIG pile of tangled metal awaiting removal. Yay!

Sorry Greengage, just found out it was you who posted about the bird survey Embarassed

No worries I forget what I post half the time, I am curious now what that was about. I have facebooked james before and he replied I told him again he was needed did a bit of Googleing of him and he is still around as he is posting gardening tips in the Tuam Hearld.

It is a three month long birdwatch . You record, once a week, all the birds you saw at any one time. It is much better than the RSPB which only have one day. If that day is bad, you may not see any birds!

I did that survey from Birdwatch Ireland last spring, it lasted 10 or 12 weeks, I cannot remember. Tick boxes of numbers of each species that you see in your own garden each week. I completed it and genuinely don't remember getting a thank you for participating (maybe they did and I forgot). A quick survey to be done of your own garden first and then you can start.

I have good news for you all. You will never see me on book farce as I call it. It is a Tagwex free zone. No reflection on you KS.

I never used to be on Farcebook either but the world keeps changing.

The forums, which I prefer, are, in general, dying and if you use Facebook sensibly, it's a good resource. It's big failing is lack of a search function but it has a much greater interaction with queries, questions and posts about assorted gardens. As long as you don't get drawn into clickbait and frivolous stuff, then it's very good. Its demograph has also changed to a much older one: young wans use Instagram instead of Facebook now. (I know you're only a "young wan", Tagwex.) Smile Smile

Other Farcebook pages that I'm in.

"Botanic Network Ireland".

"Exotic Gardening Ireland".

"Ireland Plant Identification forum".

"Alpine plants and rock gardens".

"Modern Crevice Gardens".

Wild Flowers of Britain and Ireland".

Plants, Cuttings, Bulbs, Rhizomes & Seeds for sale.

I'm also on some other specialized ones as well.

All these are extremely active and you can get good knowledge from them.
Mind you, there are also loads of "frivolous" ones as well where they just post up pictures of pretty flowers and their buys from Garden Centres. I get out of those. Smile Smile

I'd very much prefer if people used this forum instead but it's a fact of life now that nearly all the gardening traffic is on Farcebook. In the future it may migrate to another platform. Who knows? It's like the majority of people check websites now on their mobile phones instead of a desk computer. I know I'm old fashioned and still use my desktop in preference to my mobile phone but I'm in a dwindling minority. Sad Sad

A 'young wan' with a grey head and the aches and pains of age.

Anyone thought we might be getting carried away here and our beloved leader will keep the domain going and not shut it down? We haven't heard one way or the other for definite.
