" the Peak District pic!" 

Quite an easy shot to take, Nikki 

The light was good and in the absence of a tripod I decided to site the camera on the conveniently situated rocks at the side of the river (this gave the low angle effect) also used the self-timer avoided camera shake.

The camera was set on shutter priority at something like 1/3rd sec.

Paddy - Be assured this is a peaceful thread and will remain so while I have anything to do with it.

Did you have a sweet pea query?

That should work fine, Dove. Probably overwatering is the worst your OH could do.

I offer my help willingly here when anyone asks me a specific question. However, I feel when I take the trouble to reply and promptly, I think such a reply deserves to be acknowledged.

Perhaps I was brought up in the old school of manners! 

Excess Nitrogen in veg plot soil

Posted: 05/01/2014 at 19:08

Just a thought....Many people use mulch in their garden and have problems with the mulch depleting the nitrogen in the soil as it breaks down. When you have too much nitrogen in the soil, you can use this normally frustrating problem to your benefit. You can lay mulch over the soil with too much nitrogen to help draw out some of the excess nitrogen in the soil.

KEF - On the theme of Ann's cup pic, I thought you may like to see this one I took with my camera (using the macro setting) similar to yours.
