 ...and for the record isinglass is obtained from the dried swim bladders of fish.

David..this was 1971 !!!   God how tight were my parents?  Think the old chap who gave Dad the urn told him what to do. I still call the Urn " Harold H.... " after him. He was a great help / inspiration in Dad's early gardening years. Even if he tried to poison the kids.

I'll take a picture of it, not thrilling, but hey...olden times

Flora, very sorry I have waffled on and gone off your subject. Hope someone has some more sensible ideas.

I'm saying nowt about Yorkshire folk and their brass!

David all I do is point the camera, I love it.

It's every other shot I'm poor at. Think the camera has decided it only likes flowers

Can't accept this defeatism, KEF......cropping lessons are looming.

KEF - it was done as a wartime measure to preserve eggs....the slimy stuff was called isinglass.

Hi, Phillippa...well if your interests are shared between gardening & poultry, there is an active little section on this forum:

Can't say it inspired me greatly, but I remember in the infants class, sprouting bean seeds in a jam jar.

The idea was to line the jar with blotting paper, then place a couple of bean seeds between the blotting paper the inside of the glass, then add a little water to the jar.

Fascinating to watch the roots & stem emerge from the seed, sustained by nothing but damp blotting paper.

Nice architectural shots, Ann.

Showing off your close-up talents again, KEF  Thought before I enlarged it, it was a gentian...but then realised it was an anemone.

Beautiful 'gentian' blue!

Hi, this rate you'll be running the risk of getting egg-bound.

Like you I keep chickens (come to think of it I started a 'chicken keeping thread' here, ages ago) and my outlet for surplus eggs is firstly my family and the rest I sell to neighbours for £1 per half dozen....that seems to work.

Like you I prefer to rear my own for the table, but TBH I can't be doing with the preparation these days.
