HELLO FORKERS!

Been repairing and replacing electric fence ribbon and banging in posts so I can put the horses into their summer quarters. Thought I'd done it in the autumn, but with all the wind and rain this winter and all the fallen branches on the fences I needn't have bothered. It's taking ages and not finished yet.

Past bed time, night all.

Thank you John Harding. I'll look into it, I've never used Photoshop.

Great photo ighten.

The script is all in the wrong order too. The first sentence should be the last one, with the photo just before it. Weird.

 Mine took much longer to upload of course. The orange is subdued, is that just the camera?

Oh dear, the quality isn't nearly as good as the original.

Here's mine of the same thing. Why did the photo come first when I did the script first?

OH and I took the same photo in Oxford, mine is a bit dull, his is brighter, but his was too big and wouldn't upload. So he reduced it as I couldn't manage it, but it's tiny now. He wouldn't stop to explain how he reduced - he's rushed off to mow the lawn. Think it's the first time he's managed to do it anyway! I've asked on previous threads how to reduce photos, but the few answers I had didn't work. Does anyone know?

tomstattyhead, you go to the photo you want on Photobucket and on the right it says "links to share photos", but I can't remember which one, either HTML or Direct I think. You click on the oak tree in the bar above and click on "an external site" then be guided, allowing time for each stage.

 

When to dig it all up

It does still look pretty, I hate pulling plants up when still in flower. Any chance of sowing your hardy annuals into modules to give them a start?

how to deter cats from fouling in your garden

Sounds a really good idea if it really works. There have been several threads here about the cat problem.

Can you help identify my rose bush, please?!

It looks like a climber as it's so tall. It would flower better if you spread the stems along the wall rather than just going up.Screw eyelets into the wall to attach them to. It could also be a shrub, but I would have expected it to be bushier. Did you shorten any of the stems? Hybrid teas have single flowers at the end of stems but it's too tall to be a hybrid tea. Unless it is a climbing version of one, like Ena Harkness.
