KEF, beautiful Lillies, I have loads of Lilly pics and must dig them out.

David K you are mean  I couldn't justify paying for one like that today but bought a bargain one in need of TLC for £2.40 instead, I felt sorry for it and it will be beautiful before we know it 

I'm sure it will be lavished with TLC and blossom....the one in my pic seemed to have been trained into a hoop shape.

Blimey, Bob.....your plum tree is carrying some serious blossom there.

Another wintery one:

Lovely one David - making up for the snow we didn't get this winter.

Thanks, Forester.....that one was taken same place, same day as the previous one. It was a typical cold, crisp, clear, sunny day (boxing day as I recall) .....ideal to bring out the detail.

Never thought anyone would get nostalgic about snow!

I'll have to dig out my snow pics too 

David, it is actually fastened to a hoop, you can get them in any GC that sells Orchid things and just attached the Orchid stalk to it, I have little dragon fly clips that I use on mine.

Nice one, Trace!

Yes, I could see how it was done....looked really nice, as they as some of them seem to have this arching affect naturally.

You've got me thinking now, I might get an arch for my white one

Still on the 'snow' theme......I wasn't too happy about a late snow shower completely ruining this lovely camellia.

FAO Ashleigh.

Ashleigh, I really recommend you take a look at this camera, with the view to a future purchase.

Although it ticks all the boxes for me, but I did take the trouble to asks a few camera club members at last night's meeting and they all agreed it is a fantastic quality camera.

Shame about the camellia David! it looks beautiful.  I didn't realise they grew so big  I took a couple of pics of mine yesterday, I will try and get the laptop out at some point!

11/03/2014 at 15:08


Yes, Tracy.....this one is about 8ft tall and is always loaded with beautiful double flowers...sadly they never have any scent,

11/03/2014 at 15:12

Lovely pics folks.

Been messing this morning:

 Not happy with next, just wanted to see what it would be like with glass behind it.



11/03/2014 at 16:50

Don't be disappointed with your efforts, KEF...I really liked the one with patterned glass in the background and it's good to see you getting the best out of your close-up skills.  

11/03/2014 at 16:56

David, I take it you don't like my downstairs toilet floor

Now there's a typical lady talkin!

'Which of these two dresses do you like dear? The second one dear! What's wrong with the first one?'

So long as you don't say I have a big bum.

Did you know that ladies with big bottoms live longer than men who comment on them?  Soz this is the Camera thread

Photos anyone? ( not of bottoms! )

11/03/2014 at 19:41

Thanks so much David, really lovely of you to research that camera for me, loving the Camelia photo's, Nice one KEF

Camera question David,

My digital camera has a view finder which is quite rare, but I like to use that rather than the display screen, but it is 'playing up' - that is I have to keep take the batteries out and reinserting them for the camera to work.  I am thinking of replacing it,but would like one with a view finder again but NOT expensive - any ideas.

Sorry, I should have PM'd you and not hijack the thread.
