Local beauty spots were bulging at the seams........get back to work you idle  riff raff!

Beautiful spring-like day (as most of the country I suspect) here in the Midlands.....temps of abound 17c and not a cloud in the sky.

Hope it brings some respite to those poor people who have been flooded further south.

Gorgeous lilies Kef, thanks David, and your photo is amazing, should be on blown up on somebody's wall, we only had one light frost here and that was before Christmas, these winter shots are actually making me miss frost snow and ice, I never thought that would happen!

You're welcome, Ashleigh.......well given that it was posted on my Flickr account, it most probably has or been sold.

For what it's worth I no longer post on Flickr.

Talkback: Growing sweet peas

Have no problem with sharing what I know about sweet pea growing folks, but if this thread evolves into a Q&A thread, it will perhaps get a tad confusing when there is already a similar & long running one in The Potting Shed.

Just spent a while catching up on this thread, stunning photo's everyone I especially like your seed heads Fidget and thanks for the link to Danny Greens site David, amazing, I now want to go to Finland and Iceland!

If I were to buy a camera for around £80ish what would you recommend? and would I get more for my money if I bought second hand or is that a false economy?

Ashleigh - I agree with fidget, avoid second hand  cameras....certainly unless you know the camera & seller.

Perhaps worth noting that you can buy a new Canon Powershot A2500 (Argos) for around £60. This has a 5x zoom & 16 mega-pixels and quite capable of taking some very good pictures.

Oh course, it wouldn't be a match for Danny Green's shots.

Beautiful pic, KEF

Btw, the memory card problem could happen with any camera.....or any memory card to be precise.
