Reply to David K: You're welcome! I hope you're able to upload your images - do let me know if not.

Reply to Amazing2: did you try to upload an image using the small tree icon? Dragging an image from your computer won't work - you'll need to use the tree icon. Just click that, then, within the 'My computer' tab, navigate to the image on your computer you want to upload, click 'Select', then 'Upload'. Your image should then appear.

Reply to Salino: Lovely image! And thank you for sharing your advice on reducing image sizes.

Ours is still very much a work in progress, and a thread of the work in progress and garden has been detailed in the design section, but briefly  the latest addition has been to finally take delivery of 20ton load of top soil to put behind the wall shown here. The garden isn't really as bare as it appears.

And I have spent today carving another sculpture to put in the garden.

Camellia 'Water Lily'.

Managed it, though I think I need a little more practice.

Many thanks Daniel....a cabbage for you when they're ready!

What a gorgeous camellia David! Mine has been a failure again this year - bud drop despite keeping it well watered all through summer and autumn. I suspect the severe frosts all through February.

19/04/2012 at 19:25

I did find it a bit tricky as well-but also got ther in the end -the size thing flummoxed me as you then have to start all over again

Anyway- I can now say nice camellia

Elephant Hawk Moth Caterpillar

Just showing off now!

Thanks, Lorea...the pic doesn't show that it's about 10ft tall.

It's very old and flowers like that every year without fail.

19/04/2012 at 19:31

Eddie -this just has to be a labour of love and a bit more

 I don't like the way that caterpillar is eyeing me up

Ever seen a white peacock?

Love your new sculpture Eddie!

Love camellia waterlily! I first saw it at Wisley, my older sister finally sourced one at the Eden Project, then moved to a shadeless garden in Kent so I adopted it. It's fairly happy up my back passage, unfortunately still in a pot but has put roots down into the leaf litter. Flowers just about over here in South Devon though..

Many people have admired mine, figrat, but seemingly they are difficult to locate.

We'll get there, Pam

I uploaded mine straight from my computer using the little 'tree icon' (as Daniel suggested) at the top of the box where you write your message, rather than using Photobucket.

19/04/2012 at 20:40

Thankyou Geoff and David - I will get there!

Just playing.  I think I need to get my photots from my camera and keep them in a folder on my desktop.

19/04/2012 at 20:45

if you have windows go to photo apps hit properties hit resize down to 640 or 680 hit ok hit save and then you should be able to send
