Good MOOrnin Marie! Glad you've joined :p
I had no idea you were from the UK! Totally awesome! Now, I'll be reading your posts with an accent. Hahaha
Like you, I'm hoping to get better at gardening :)

People tend to forget that there are regional accents in all countries, too. Here in America, we have Southern, New York, Boston, Western... etc. Same thing in Great Britain, Australia, and so forth. My mother was raised in the Dijon area of France, and she told me how the nuns at the convent where she went to school would punish her because she had a "country" accent and they wanted her to cultivate a "city" accent.

DH told me that one of the funniest things he ever heard was two college kids trying to have a conversation: one was from Appalachia and the other was from the Outback. He ended up acting as translator for them 🤣

I lived in the hills of eastern TN for a few years and knew some Aussies from college. :) now add in that i could translate and put a Yooper accent on it. :)
