Music in the Garden

This has no sad memories for me, Gemma. Happy ones for sure; when my daughter was a baby, I used to dance around the house singing this to her. Now she lists it as her all-time favourite song. 

PS. Her OH has his own band & is a singer, he now sings it to her....ever felt redundant?

Hi, Granma

That's very interesting. You are quite right to be concerned about the longevity of your self-printed photos....these will begin to fade (especially in sunlight) after about five years.

I have a Canon 'Selphy' photo printer. It uses a rather unique process which involves the final stage consisting of applying a protective coat. Canon  claim that these prints will last for 100 years. Prints are waterproof & virtually indestructible.

Limitations are: It's necessary to use only Canon paper & ink cartridge and the maximum size is only 6" x 4".

An example, but as always it's best to shop around:

Sorry, Lily...hard to think she'd have been a nan now.

Will try something a bit more cheery next time.

Ah, thanks fidget....I hadn't heard about that custom.

I think it must have taken off quite recently in Bakewell, as it's only been the last couple of times when I have visited that I've noticed them.

Ta very much.

Hope you don't mind folks, what I wanted to say hardly merited starting a new thread.

I just wanted to ask pansyface if she knew the reason for all those padlocks being attached to the town's river bridge in always intrigues me when I visit.
