Could someone explain to me how to insert a photo in here?
I'm really new at this but would love to share photos with you of my side of the World.

Ginger, there a couple of ways of inserting you photos to this site.

One is from a Photobucket (or other) account and the other is directly from your pc.....the latter is the easiest.

On the right of the toolbar above where you write your messages, you will see a little green tree icon. Click on this and it will open a window headed 'insert an image', on its toolbar it will ask 'your computer' or 'external site' (in this instance) select 'your computer'.

On the option 'select files to upload'.....this will take you to your computer files, select the picture you wish to insert, then click upload (the times of this uploading varies according to your pc's speed) then click save.

Hope I haven't missed anything out.....good luck & look forward to seeing some sunny shots.

 Thank you, Fairygirl  ......I've tweaked the offending 'bench arm' away for you.

Thanks, Steve......bright brisk & sunny, but bloomin cold.

I like to include a few twisty branches when I can, I think they give a bleak/arty look. mid-picture is dead bracken.

 Welcome, Ginger......just for you, taken on my morning walk.

Growing Leeks.

Vegboy....."Very popular in the Northeast of England", bordering on obsession/religion in some cases.  I believe the coveted seed is passed around and rarely leaves the waistcoat pocket.

I grow 'Mammoth Blanch Leek' by Robinsons for the local show bench (not pot-leeks) and they do reasonably well at this level.

By choice I grow the old tried & tested 'Musselburgh' for the table, but in my soil, most of them seem to do well.

Yes, Bob.....Leicester are soldiering on nicely without the expected dip because of the lack depth in their squad.

Another cracker at Anfield between Liverpool & Arsenal, prolly as good as that between Newcastle & Man U on the previous night......12 goals in both games!
