Today's Wordle answer July 23

Today's Wordle answer is: MIDGE.

A midge is a small insect, typically found in swarms near water and during hot weather. They're also a pest to plants and, hey, this is the second time in three days that the Wordle solution has been the name of an insect that's a particular annoyance to gardeners. You'd almost think someone's got a grudge going (and probably some absolutely brutalised begonias). And if you don't want people declaring a grudge against you, be sure not to spoil today's Wordle answer until we're safely into tomorrow and out of the danger zone.
