  1. Up here Matt, nothing changes until May! In April we get odd Shoulder stripe, Early Thorn and Water Carpet, but its the Orthosias that take the show....

  2. Dont worry Stewart, just bask in the glow of your Red Sword-grass. You'll be dining out on that for years!! ;)

  3. Just pulled an Early Thorn out the trap now, first thorn sp for the garden, Streamer over the weekend too, so still ticking along. Must admit I liked the look of Red Sword-grass too...

  4. Andy- this isn't a C.V.! You'll have to change that work-based press release photo. Mine is bad enough! ;^)
