Oh no, rosemummy....it's your expectations that keep you going.

Perhaps we can gear your plantings around your garden next year.

Another little sonnet to add a little joviality to the thread.

"Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die."                             

I need hugs too....

"Would it do any damage if I nipped out the bit where the tendrils grow?"

You would need to elaborate on this, Denno.

These will blow up to A4, and I doubt I'll need anything bigger than that.

 

Quite, I have a small point & shoot Nikon, it has 16m pixels and would be hard pressed to enlarge to A4 without pixilation.

Thanks, fidget....with results like that there is a case for a quality point & shoot camera.

People (encouraged by the camera makers) seem to be obsessed by the number of pixels, when it really down to the quality of the sensor & lens......I've seen stunning shots taken with a 7m pixel camera.
