Posting removal

Do the Moderators remove postings without explanation? Only I am sure I put a link to an album of images in the Garden Photos section, but it is not there now.

If it was removed I would love to know why so I can avoid the problem in the future.

Been a good year so far for Hazel catkins. If you look closely at the branches, just behind the catkins you may see tiny red flowers. With any luck, there will be a good crop of nuts for you. Joybell.

Better if you wrapped the roots in damp newspaper, if you cannot pot them up. No plant likes its roots drying out. Or put the roots in plastic bags and then cover so the roots are in the dark.

Better than having to go into the house, remove hat, coat, scarf, gloves and boots to get a camera.


 Did it for this Saxifrage, only because the label has faded and I want to know which one it is.

When fully ripe, the berries look like purple grapes. Hence its name Oregon grape. They are actually edible if a bit insipid. Removal of seed would be like taking the pips out of grapes.
