Tracy - I'm not really sure about your plans to grow your SPs up the privet hedge. They are very robust and would most likely grow over the hedge and down the other side.....I'm not sure how this will fit in with cutting them & routine maintenance.

I would try to offer them some other type of support.

That's a strange fault, Forester and not one I've heard of.......perhaps the camera contacts need cleaning. 

It is a fact that a camera will use less power using the electronic viewfinder, rather than the LCD screen.

My own camera has a clever little sensor that shuts-off the LCD screen when you put your eye to the viewfinder and restores it when you take your eye away from it.

Tracy - Yes, they will grow up your privet hedge okay, but I rather wonder if it will be a problem at trimming time.

Btw, those you have just planted out, put a few small twigs around them to give support.

Sounds like yours are on the right track, Dove.

Malcolm - No need for nipping out the tops of those dwarf type. 

What's the weather like in your area?

Still bright sunny days & cold nights here in the Midlands.

Marvellous what a few consecutive days of dry weather can do....a few weeks ago Cheltenham race course was flooded. Now (according to today's news) course officials say it it's in better condition than ever.......in fact, they may have to water it.

Don't be disappointed with your efforts, KEF...I really liked the one with patterned glass in the background and it's good to see you getting the best out of your close-up skills.

Yes, Tracy.....this one is about 8ft tall and is always loaded with beautiful double flowers...sadly they never have any scent,

FAO Ashleigh.

Ashleigh, I really recommend you take a look at this camera, with the view to a future purchase.

Although it ticks all the boxes for me, but I did take the trouble to asks a few camera club members at last night's meeting and they all agreed it is a fantastic quality camera.
