Hi, granma....generally speaking it isn't advisable to feed azaleas after the end of this month, the reason being that it will induce new growth that may be damaged by frost.

Continuous ink feed may be worth considering.

Sold '39 images in one week' eh? Well done!

I've only ever sold two images in my life (given plenty away, but that's another story) One to my dentist & one to my chiropodist.....both hang-up in there respective waiting rooms. Alas, that's not what I'm about.

I'm just away to my village fete now (camera in hand) so hopefully I spot something worth snapping.

Obtaining hard copies is easy peasy, NorthanLass. I can't be troubled to go to the trouble & expense of printing my own, so I upload mine for club competitions to one of the dozens of online labs.

Absolutely excellent takes, NorthernLass.......I'm sure the pheasant would be a contender for this years Countryfile calendar competition (now  closed unfortunately).....the theme being  ‘Colours of the Countryside’.
