I think they may have sorted the photo problem. Some have errors, but some blow up beautifully when you click on them and they don't have white bands anymore. I've looked back over several pages. Some great photos.

...oh that's good, let's see how this one goes...

...as summer hasn't yet arrived, and shows no signs of doing so, we shall have to carry on with Spring...

..we all love our gardens, but I find foliage colours to be just as nice at this time of year....  this border I shall re-do in the autumn - the heathers are quite aggressive -  but I quite like the mix and contrast going on at the moment.... quite dense..

..whoops... that doesn't enlarge... some gobbledegook.... back to the drawing board...

I think the only photos which are enlarging are the ones taken from an external site. I'm using photobucket as suggested by Salino previously. It's easy enough to do so I'd suggest everyone puts their pics onto a site like this and posts here from it instead. I used to use Photobox for photos so presumably it would work and I expect there are many others.

I don't have the faintest idea how to do that FairyG

Sorry art -just saw your post! Google 'photobucket' and then just follow the instructions on the site to upload your pix from your own computer. You can then transfer them from the 'library' there on to your posts.

You can edit them on there too and there's also a 'direct link' which is what I use for putting them on here.

Am a bit wary of this; will look at it tomorrow.

I shall try less mbs


 Unbelievable how long these daffs have been flowering.

happymarion

Success.  This was straight from my computer.  Click on and try it.  Try to reduce your pic to 1.25 mb or below before submitting.

Go back to some former pages on this thread - they have sorted the pictures on the earlier pages and may be working their way through.  Lovely enlargement of the purple pasqueflower.

One Spring sweetheart i love to get close to every May is my tree peony, Dai Jin,  It is supposed to have red and white striped flowers - well, I had one once but mostly they are all red, all white or sall pink but ten three different flowers on one bush is pretty clever,  But what gets you running to, even in bud is the amazing perfume,  Heavenly. Here it is this morning.


 

Lovely peony happymarion, one of my fave plants, mine are still small buds, but show a lot of promise for a magnificent display.

happymarion

Amazing what a few hours of sunshine will do to peony buds.  Here they are four hours later.

Today must be Tree Peony day; mine have just opened


 These flowers have no scent, but are over 8" across. They usually come out earlier.


 Am growing Alstromeira for the first time, I have always loved these; this one is called Rhubarb and Custard.

Love the tree peonies!!

i have three babies, but none have flowered yet. This gardening lark is a waiting game! In the meantime I will gaze at your pics in anticipation...

I do like the look of Alstromeiras, not grown them, very pretty

I have just learnt that they can come out of the greenhouse for the summer...now where did I put that summer thingy?
