Hi, Daniel

I'm still finding the uploading of pics not very satisfactory i.e. file size, can't import or enlarge them....not a patch on the old format.

Rather spoilt the camera thread I introduced and have always enjoyed.

Depending where you live,  there's still time. I have about a dozen HT's without buds at present, they look very healthy and I'm sure they won't be long be before they bud.

Now you would never associate Onslow with such a dainty and girly flower! LOL!

See original post

Geoffrey Hughes (now deceased) was a true gentleman, sadly the roles these actors play often colours people's perception of them.

Geoffrey was a close family friend of the Heathcote (Eagle) family and the sweet pea was named after him as a token of remembrance.

......whilst on the subject, this gorgeous sweet pea 'Geoffrey Hughes' (aka Onslow) was bred by Eagle Sweet Peas.

David, your oil seed rape photo practically makes me sneeze...

 I know what you mean  fortunately I don't have any allergies.

The pic itself didn't quite work out as I idea was to use a large aperture to bring the plants in the foreground  into focus and to blur the rest of the field, compliment by the lovely blue sky.

Alas, as my teacher said, 'must try harder'.

There's something about Joe Swift that I cannot really take to. Poor man - he's done nothing wrong. Its just me.

Thanks.....I agree, it does look rather like a cormorant.
