Thanks all. !
Locally,they say its ok to for nurseries to open,and garden. So,I went to get mulch and it was like a sci-fi movie,people in masks,lines evenly spaced by six feet. I got my mulch and left!
This is not ending soon..

But summer like temps are here..feels great. Leave this post on a high note-lol.

I hope garden centres and plant nurseries will be opening here in the U.K. soon.

Pleased to hear you got out for your mulch Stan. It’s definitely a strange life at the moment. When I’ve been food shopping it’s long queues with 2m gaps, or more..or less, depends on the person in front or behind! I’ve seen some strange get ups out there, people geared up as you say ‘like something from a sci-fi movie’. Like Shirley said, I do hope our garden centres and nurseries open really soon.

So pleased you got your mulch Stan.

Lol Stan same here but not as many as I thought that would be wearing them. when I ve been at the shops locally or sitting in a car at supermarkets as I have nt had a letter telling me to stop in its now mainly 70 s and over they are wanting to remain in.

As of it lasting long here are a few links about it the first from an expert engineer on what 5g does if put close together this man has been taken to court by his council but the judge seemed to agree with him on another video but he did get fined but the judge refused for him to pay the costs.


Here is a short one of a New York Doctors opinion I found last night. He argues it is not like the normal pneumonia its more like altitude sickness where oxygen is being sucked out of them just like 5g does if fitted to close together. I found him very sincere in this and his first video.

My other "interest" is tropical fish. I once worked in natural sciences for a local museum and I took care of the huge ponds and indoor aquatic plants. I even once had an offer from the Academy of Sciences in San Francisco to be an aquarist. They asked me if I would mind taking care of the Penguins. I said,uh,No,don't mind. But that wasn't to be.
That Penny ties in with what you said of the nurseries not being like just last year. When I went into a local Aquarium I've done since 1974, the owner was lamenting,that not only is business terrible..he's having a hard time getting new fish. Suppliers are laying off workers who do the shipping.
It something to see many tanks with a few small fish. Not the variety.

Yes Stan it does normal shops are just full of junk too not well made either now and less of any new varieties of in any retail now.
