There is a little icon that looks like a tree - just to the right of the one you use to insert a smilie - click on that and follow the instructions to upload an existing picture from your iPad.....

Morning All - lie in for me

Looks like the sun is going to hide behind the clouds here today - which is good, as i have two garden areas that need some attention, and i would have melted if i'd attempted it yesterday.  Both need a serious weed and tidy up, and some judicious hacking back too.  Thats a gardening skill that never gets enough attention in the literature.....the great hack back.  Maybe i should write a book .....

Woody - we want pictures of your awards, trophies and prize winning entries

Wonderful pics Artjak - i have never been there at the right time to see the meadows in their full glory - absolutely spectacular  Can you imagine having that (and all the rest of it for that matter) outside your back door.  The gravel garden is pretty special too.

and what a happy lot you all look - lovely

Fairy - its looking fab, fab, fab  All that work is really paying off - you must be so pleased.  I remember the "before" pics, so know just what a difference you have made - you're a star

Love liatris too wintersong - dramatic flowers that hang around for ages.  Whats the little tangerine flower in the first pic ??  Whatever it is, its going on my list !!

lovely upcycling lesley - love a bit of quirkiness in a garden, especially when its your secret
