    I have loads of books but they are all full of drawings, doodles, dried leaves and other bits and bobs. Photos are my form of diary. I take several most days and they are all dated - I refer back to them often.

    It would seem that most of us print and for the same reason as my self, so that what you put do wn is ledgable, to your self if no one else though it is good to see that some of us like to write, as a tidy hand written note is nice to see, as for taking photos, a good idea but I think it would be t o expensive to print them out and carrying a computer and monotor screen out to the greenhouse just to compare photos would be a bit much

    Hmmm, Rary??! I'm from the younger generation I carry my IPad mini and phone everywhere! You would probably misplace it




    ....VC would be wondering what the ringing noise was

    Scarlet I'll have you know that I recognise the sound of my phone ringing now. I usually stand there and say, to nobody in particular, "That must be my phone". By the time I've found the phone, turned it on and remembered how to accept the call, the caller has rung off.
    They're always rubbish calls anyway!


    As for rary's question, I mix up capitals and lower case, not deliberately, it just happens...............and I still can't read what I've written.

    Well it's nice to see some of the older ones consider themselves to be from the younger generation, well in comparison with some Grapes I suppose they are correct but then so am I, now I will have to find out what an IPad is
    and VC at least I can read mine

    I hope it makes more sense than some of the posts you put on the Vine.
