photo uploads from phone

When i first got my phone - last summer- you COULD upload photos from it.  It only stopped when apple released their new ios 7.  No doubt it'll all catch up in time

Woody - thought you might like to know the ones you gave me are surviving - lots of leaves but no flowers yet.  They are labelled "Astrantia Woody" - which i will patent if they turn out to be stunners

Morning All

Lovely news about no. 7 Lizzie.  And Edward is a good english name too.

Glad Woody enjoyed Malvern - was trying to spot you on GW last night, but Monty kept getting in the way.  Only another week and i am off to Chelsea .... Didn't pay £400 for my ticket though - gone for our usual afternoon entrance deal.

Had rained a lot, but clear at moment. Think i will be dodging the showers and doing GH jobs. Noticed yesterday that i have my first rose (snowdon), my first large flowered clematis and my first Lupin in bloom .... All very exciting

Green woodpecker yaffling away here reminds me of Bagpuss. Really gotta go now .......

Hope your Dad continues to improve Fidget - sounds like he is keeping folks entertained.

This week has gone quickly - think they should all be 4 days long.  Weekend forecast getting better - just showers now.  Will get a chance to survey what is still standing after the "blustery" stuff of the last few days.  Good job i did my tieing in last weekend

Rain on its way here too - good job its an office day for me. Seeing the rose pictures on the Garden Gallery reminded me that there is a yellow one in full bloom on a house wall on my way to work - I'm sure thats not usual for May
