Hi, Charlie

The setting I select on my camera uses filters to highlight these chosen colours. Within the same program it also offers 'pro focus' pro low light' and 'multiple exposure'.

'I suppose I'm showing my age'.....it is quite a new camera.

Beautiful photo, your a camera wizard! Don't tell me how you did it. Like magic, its probably really easy and best if I don't know how. 



Nothing wizardry about it, Lunara...it's a setting on my camera. I can do likewise with several other colours, yellow, purple, blue and a couple more I can't recall.

Thanks, KEF.  xx

Just messing around really  Some of us have expressed a liking for b & w pics, others for colour...so I've been playing around with this relic from Christmas to please everyone.  

Window ledge style heated propagator - any good?

Personally I would want one free of charge....and I ask the question, what are you going to do with these seedlings after they have germinated at express speed?....A  heated greenhouse (to 60f) would be imperative.

Experience tells me that trying to beat nature by producing stuff early is doomed to fail.

Alas, garden centres will once again have tomato plants for sale in February & people will buy, only to be back for more in May.  

 

 

Growing Roses

Road-kill, fertilizer etc.

Was putting some flowers on a friends grave recently and struck up a conversation with someone who likewise was attending a grave.

'I wonder why there are always so many molehills in this cemetery', she says.....'moles are mostly found in rich soil where is an abundance of worms' says I. 

Yours truly quickly changes the subject, before the penny dropped.

Don't know why.....it's quite feasible. Before powdered fertilizer, it was common to bury rotting fish to enrich the soil.

Oh, sometimes I envy you British a little! Here is no such thing as "escaped the snow" or "never-quite-frozen strips".   This far this has been the mildest winter in decades, just a couple of days below -15°C...  I look forward to all your spring pictures, I think most of you are two months ahead of me when it comes to spring!

 

Crikey.....weather like that would Finnish us off!

I'll get me coat.
