I would sum it up pretty well the same, DD  

I don't know if anyone else feels the same, but I feel Katie has more potential than Anton is bringing out of could be said I suppose, it's the most he's ever had to stretch himself.

I really like that, chicky....both for the view and composition.

Fairygirl, most of what I post here are within 3 miles of my home.....a really lovely part of Staffordshire. I sometimes think that people think of Staffordshire as being industrial & dull and that is the case in some parts, but there are also some very pretty bits.

Lovely pictures everyone.  

DAVID.  We are going to Chatsworth on the 24th for the Christmas display too.  

Hope you have a great day, Rb.

My family & me are going in my car. The tickets for house & garden are (pre-booked) £20 each + petrol, parking etc. Interesting to note that 'Swiftsure' are running a coach on 2nd Dec which includes a visit to Bakewell + house & gardens admission, for £24.80... not sure how that works.

That's really nice, Lily.....I can well imagine it looks different today, if your weather is anything like's been pants.

Probably my next photo opportunity will be Sun 15th Nov, when I'll be visiting Chatsworth House to see their Christmas display.......theme is The Wind in the Willows this year.

 I know I've posted this before, but I do so again to show what can be done with a decent zoom lens.

A shot of the moon is just that, but I  like this because of how the clouds complimented the moon.

For what it's worth, I have 3 cameras. A Nikon Coolpix L27 small pocket camera, a Fujifilm HS50EXR Bridge camera and  Pentax K50 DSLR with several lenses.

David, I watched that unboxing clip. Did you read some of the comments left !!!! Shocking.

No I didn't, but have now......nothing detrimental about the camera though.

Some cracking pics been posted here over the last few days. I was particularly impressed with Dary's rusty sea defences.....a cracker!

Good luck with your new camera, Hostafan. 

Double digging!

What does it achieve? Do you get plants or yield double the size? Does it keep the undergardener out of mischief?

Double-digging improves the aeration of the soil, facilitates root penetration, and is especially recommended for crops such as carrots that root deeply, helping to prevent forking. It’s beneficial for new garden beds with long-term plantings, such as vegetables, perennials, cane fruits, and shrubs.

Double-digging also improves soil drainage by breaking up compaction and removing hardpan on soil.
