Now this should be every bit as interesting as Jacksparrow's vine :clap:. Good luck, Willpar.

Lunchtime, hot and sunny: a cinnabar moth travelled directly from west to east right across the garden. Not only that but 10 seconds later, another followed exactly the same path.
Was this a prime example of pheromones at work ? Hope so :).

Like that :) :yes: :yes:
Is the loosestrife growing in or around your extensive irrigation system, Jacksparrow ? Y'know, watering the vineyard and so forth.

The Loosestrife has it feet in my nature pond and is currently sucking the water out faster than I can get it in. :(
