Love those shots, Forester......captures beautifully, what must have been a very pleasant walk. 

Garden hose

With plumbing systems it is important to prevent contamination of the water for obvious reasons. Dirty water getting back into the system poses a health risk and steps must be taken to prevent this happening. Backflow (as it is called) is when water which could be contaminated is drawn back into the plumbing system.

Regulations require that in order to prevent contamination of domestic water systems, hose taps must be fitted with non-return valves to prevent contamination to domestic supplies through back-flow.

A scenario that is quite feasible is when filling a garden pool. When the pool is full and the still submerged hose is turned-off, contaminated water can easily be siphoned back into the domestic supply.

Anyone have a garden blackbird?

 Sutton's 'Noverna Forumula Mix' would give an excellent display.

 Saw this rather splendid old Monkey Puzzle tree this morning and thought Tracey may like to see it......perhaps not located in the most salubrious of surroundings.

More nice shots, Nikki, thank you and nice to see you posting again......Which reminds me, haven't seen Little Anne around for a while.

Felley Priory Bluebells.

Probably some of the best bluebell shots I've ever seen...and I've seen a few!

Well done, fidget.....fabulous!

Gardening courses

I've posted this link on another work themed thread today:  http://www.southstaffs.ac.uk/courses/horticulture/

I attended a course here, purely recreational as my chosen career took me elsewhere.....maybe there is something similar in your area.

Good luck!

Lovely taste of spring, Forester.

 I thought the colour combination of these flowers were quite nice.

Hanging basket sweet peas were mentioned a little while ago, so I thought I would post this to give the general idea.

This is of a 14in basket, taken about March last year.
