Glad you found the Stuart Crump link, KEF  it did rather get lost following some prolific posting of other  pics.

He's a very accomplished photographer and his work is well worth viewing......even inspired me to change my b&w house to b&w. 

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

I sowed my sweet peas yesterday. Here's a question: Assuming that they do alright, is it wise to sow another batch in spring for a later flowering, or will the first batch keep going all season?

Thannks!

Hi, ommthree

The seeds you have recently sown will flower between May & Aug/Sept...those sown in March should continue to flower until the autumn.

Lovely shots, Lily....the poppy in a glass was a very good subject choice.

For me, not sure Jennifer was the worse dancer, although perhaps she was nearing her time.

Prepare for a heatwave!!!

Glass V Polycarbonate Greenhouse

Posted: 13/10/2014 at 09:00

I’m afraid glass greenhouses are in danger of becoming extinct in favour polycarbonate…..the later being safer, more durable and cheaper.

Polycarbonate glazing is recommended if you have children or animals running around your garden as any impact will merely result in the child or dog/cat bouncing of the polycarbonate panel or at the worst popping a panel out which can be put back in place simply and quickly. A collision of this type with a glass greenhouse or coldframe would result in serious injuries.

Your 12 x 8 greenhouse is a sensible size and should prove to be very useful.

Wow...what a wonderful show tonight.

Some of the celebs this year are amazing.....the performances of Pixie, Frankie & Caroline were off the scale tonight.

Caroline & Pasha's dance almost reduced me to tears, it was so beautiful.....but danced to Aerosmith's beautiful 'don't want to miss a thing', how could they fail?

No talent at all involved, but I even liked the Batman routine.

Quote of the night from the judges for me, was when Craig said of Scott 'It's was like a lobster on acid'.

At last week's camera club meeting we were given a talk by Mr Stuart Crump about monochrome photography. Some of my enthusiasm for the subject seems to have rubbed-off here earlier in the week.

If anyone would care to take a look at Stuart's work, this is his website: http://www.stuartcrump.com/
