Often when you write your first line of computer code/programme, the memorable "Hello World" is displayed as the output.
I remember writing my first programme - in FORTRAN! it was punched on cards which were fed into a computer the size of small car and out popped the line "HELLO WORLD". How far we have come!
Seemed apt to say this phrase at the launch of the website. I wonder if anyone still uses this phrase?
The dreaded Buddleia (Buddleja davidii) strikes again. It was originally brought over from China and named after a late 17th-century Essex vicar.
Why not share your photos if you've spotted it growing somewhere it shouldn't be!
On the plus side, it is an attractive plant to many insects and a butterfly's paradise. On warm days, flocks of tortoiseshells, peacocks, red admirals and other species will feast on the nectar.
I think the buddleia is king in this garden!
