Ann I don't know how  If you can explain please do in "baby" speak

I'm not back until tomorrow, but will check to see if you've replied. Or PM me if you prefer, and then wait for my silly questions. Thank you for offering help.

usually your camera will come with some softwear for your computer, are you using a computer or tablet to view and then upload your picture

I note that some of you have mentioned mirrors which can cause birds to fly into them which is not good for their health - please reconsider if you like your wildlife.

Star gaze lily, what do you do about drainage in the teacups, they look fabulous.

Was that hellebore really that purple, star gaze Lily?

More truly wonderful shots posted here today.....many thanks for sharing them.

KEF, I'm really impressed by how your looking at picture composition more closely now.

Btw, it was the 'wheelbarrow' at Barnsdale that prompted me to take that shot.....in fact, I can say that garden staff were working just off camera.

I was rather chuffed to have captured all my shots  (in spite of the gardens being fairly busy with visitors)  without anyone being in them.

Good point I grow. A bird flew into my window yesterday. He seemed fine and just took off again but it really upset me.

As we know, not many of us bother to print our pictures anymore, we just seem to  store them in our PCs for personal consumption or share them via email or as we do here.

However, I do like to share my prints (particularly family ones) sometimes. Never being impressed with inkjet printer results, I bought myself a Canon 'Selphy' CP900 dedicated photo printer. Easy to use, laboratory quality prints, can print WiFi and reasonably priced......I am extremely pleased with it.

Depends on how and where the mirrors are sited I think. Big ones would be an issue but I've used them before without any problem. I've had more problems with birds flying into the windows, including an owl which left it's imprint on my daughter's smallish bedroom window 

I considered that photo printer David.  

star gaze lily

Ashleigh,  im just very careful when watering, wouldn't be clever enough to make a hole in the bottom of a cup without it shattering!  Lol But those pics aren't mine they are Andy's,  so maybe he does put holes in. 

Yes fidget, it was, I wanted to buy one that colour but they didn't have any. Mines a pinky colour.

Tracey...another option to crop your pics is 'snipping tool'.  If your computer is windows 7, simpy type in snipping tool into your start menu, as shown below (just make sure you have your pic open):


 You can then drag your cursor over the area of the pic you want. right click and select save as.  It saves as a jpeg. 

Hope this is useful.

For sure.....a far bigger danger (IMHO) is small mesh plastic netting as used to cover soft fruit such as raspberries.

Thanks Nikki, but it was KEF who needed to know although any advice gratefully received by me too

I've got the laptop out guys so apologies in advance for the bombardment of delayed photo input!!

Pic 1; Snowdrops in my front garden taken last week.

Pic 2; I'm not sure what this plant is so maybe someone can tell me, but the other day it had diamonds as flowers

Pic 3; One of my Valentine's roses

Pic 4; My white Orchid, using David's tip of placing it in front of the TV screen (thank you David).

I hope they come out in that order but if not I'm sure you'll all work it out
