Trying an experiment here...it seems I can only post pics from my pc now i.e. we've lost the ability to post from an eternal source.

Rather sad as much of what I post here comes via photobucket.

Spying....not really, I found it just by flipping through your post history.

All looking good, Wonky......however, re supports, if they are normal varieties, remember they have the potential to grow 2.5 metres tall.

GD - SPs were from last year, this year's are showing early bud growth.

For me, this forum is quite doable now...in fact I think it's better in many respects than the old foemat.

I'd like someone to explain how I managed to get so many quotes in my last message.

Gorgeous Sheps. There's no doubt the quality of the camera helps with such a detailed subject!

There's one (or two maybe)  that hangs around the burn near where I work but I don't go round that bit really. I suppose I should, because it's apparently there a lot. Would be nice to get a pic if possible.

Hope you find a suitable camera GD. Mine was under  £100, reduced from about £140. I know Hostafan got a good one recently too - don't know if David can remember which one it was. Mine is a bit heavier than my old one but I'm used to it now. I wondered if I'd made a mistake and should have got one of the small ones - just because it's all extra weight to lug up hills, but I think it was worth it for the better zoom and features.

Think it was this one  Fairy:

Ah, happy memories for you, pp. I too used to develop & print my own roll film and like you spent many a happy hour in my (improvised) dark room with it's ickle red bulb.

This was when I was in my early teens, during a austere period, so expensive cameras were never an option. Probably a Zenith (Russian) camera was the nearest I ever came to being posh.  A Leica was my unfulfilled ambition.

Alas, I did okay and am now enjoying the new-fangled stuff that is out of date before you've handed your money over.
