SPRING 2015

While I was out on the road today I noticed that the Blackthorn in the hedgerows were in bloom. A sure sign that spring is upon us. :)

You are KIDDING ?!?!?!?!?! :eek: :eek: :eek:
My treasured blackthorn (it's well-named) is nowhere near flowering.

:wave2: Is this topic too similar to the FIRST SIGNS OF SPRING one in General Nature ?

Maybe it's just for SPRING IN THE GARDEN type of thing but the hedgerows referred to are out on the road - I'll get greg's coat :bolt: :sofa:

I take your point Nuthatch. I have posted in the First signs etc... and I forgot about it :rolleyes: But as you said we could use one for what is happening in our gardens and this one for elsewhere. It will be OK for when the first signs of Spring have morphed into Spring in general. I also thought it would be a handy reference for the coming years rather than trawling all through a thread looking for a particular event/time.

I do so agree that order should always prevail wherever possible (see previous discussion under WIST and subsequently acted upon with commendable celerity thus causing the parturition of WEIST).
In this regard and for the avoidance of confusion or mis-posting (heaven forfend :rolleyes: ) may I offer the suggestion that a Committee be set up forthwith to which all posts be submitted for judgement and that said Committee perform said judgements and forward each post to the appropriate Topic with sufficient alacrity as to prevent any hiatus in the minute by minute onward flow of the Forum.

Obviously a Steering Group must firstly be set up in order to write a cogent Book of Rules which shall bind and instruct the Committee, when set up, in the performance of its duty.

Perhaps Forum members might wish to submit written suggestions on:
(a) the membership and duties of The Steering Group (hereafter referred to as "The Steering Group");
(b) the contents of The Book of Rules (hereafter referred to as "The Book of Rules");
(c) the membership of and the emoluments commensurate with the heavy duties pertaining to The Committee (hereafter referred to as "The Committee";
(d) the setting up of a Sub-Topic within a Topic within a new Category regarding to the new mechanism now and hereinafter under proposal.

All in favour ..........

Ah, yes, I see :shake: :scratch: if this is the elsewhere one shouldn't it be elsewhere ..... and then we'd have no garden one.

The one in GENERAL NATURE wouldn't want to be coming over here because it's not garden-specific.

I agree it's good to have a new dated one each year :yes:
