The flowers of Echeveria albicans. Looking good enough to eat – though they are probably horribly poisonous.
These last few days, I have been smugly purring to myself (in my best George Sanders*) because my daily stats have skyrocketed. From a few dozen a day they have gone up to well over a hundred and increasingly from fairly unusual places around the globe. (Why hello Armenia, welcome Iran and golly but I’m big in Switzerland). I’ve always had hits from around the world and some of these visits might be pukka but suddenly Iran is my eighth most popular country ever and Switzerland my seventh!
Alas, when I studied my blogger stats properly, I realised something was amiss (damnation) and a simple google search for “blogger stats too high” confirmed my fears. It seems I’m not alone. These “ghost visits” are from blogs that link to me and me to them and so are not spam referrals. Jason over at “A Gardener’s Life For Me” hasn’t had this problem but then he is with WordPress. Wish I was.
My second problem with blogger in just a few weeks. Great. Anyone else suddenly (but not really) hugely popular?
