 Looking a tad drawn tbh, Tracy.....never mind, hope you soon have your cold greenhouse.

Anyway, re pinching-out, I did these pics for illustration purposes ages ago.

Pic 1 plant before pinching, pic 2 plant after pinching & pic 3 the pinched-out tip.

David, cropping is the "homework" I haven't done. I save pics on computer(&back them up) and use Paint in Windows to alter size etc. However I haven't yet learned how to crop. Some posters on the thread were telling me about it recently. When I get around to it I'll give a shout if I have problems.

It's only since I joined the Forum that I've started taking regular pictures of the garden. Now I have a monthly record. In February, when not much was supposed to happen I've taken nearly forty snaps. Not counting all the playing with Macro shots. They aren't all good pics but I'm just happy to have the images.

 KEF - Hope you don't mind, but just for example and for you to see, I've cropped your lovely little flower pic.

Thanks, Bob.....I'll keep that in mind. I am slightly mystified. As I have said previously, I know my pics posted on my Flickr account are vulnerable.....but anyone wishes to copy them, that's fine by me. 

I'm rather intrigued by the shot 'Bluebell wood in Essex''s almost identical to one of mine.

Pretty little flower, KEF.....I think it would perhaps look even better if it was cropped slightly (as most close-ups are)...are you okay with cropping?

Steephill, be assured it isn't my style or in my character to lie or deceive anyone. Be further assured I have taken & hold many bluebell photos on my PC and am quite capable of taking my own without resorting to laying claim to others efforts. 

I'm puzzled how the that picture was amongst my own collection of bluebell shots and am  rather surprised that I would have posted it claiming as mine knowing it was marked. 

Incidentally, there is one shot 'Bluebell wood in Essex' in the link you posted, which looks identical to one I have taken myself.

Have this huge piece of agate sitting in my fireplace....doing little more than gathering dust. I dusted it this morning and wondered what it would look like as a pic.

That's a very cosy picture, your wood-burner.

Suppose I should feel flattered that someone would be prepared to pay £74 for a pic of mine.....think should I get an agent?
