Happy New Year to one & all....and hopefully we'll see some of your midnight firework pics later.

David I looked at the link and then investigated my Coolpix L25, turns out it does more than the starter booklet says.

So when I'm more in the mood I'll have a go with it's different options. Thanks

Glad it helped, KEF.......it's quite surprising what can be achieved with a fairly basic camera. One thing I would urge you to look into, that's your cameras macro facility.

Anyone noting my post about my Nikon L27 Coolpix compact camera may wish to take a look at this clip:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQV3xfYDtgI  or www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-s5cpW7UeU

I would disagree with comments about it being 'plasticy'. On the contrary, I find the build quality excellent.

David, I think concrete type blocks that were skimmed over. Looked good on the outside, but stairwells and such gave the feeling of being in a prison, well what I imagine

Cheers for that.

Ann - Further to my last message, I would just add that I  have recently bought a Nikon COOLPIX L27 compact camera for taking those quick impromptu pics. It has a 16MP sensor and slips nicely into my top pocket.......just £39.99 from Argos.

Thanks for your pics, KEF & Ann.

KEF - Is the building material wood or stone?

Ann - If this is your new Fuji, I would have thought auto wold have been your best option......nice pup!

After a brilliant start, it's proving difficult to keep this thread going.....not sure I want to keep posting pictures to myself. 

Hope it doesn't fizzle out!

During a recent visit to Chatsworth House I took this shot of the Joseph Paxton's Conservative Wall. Built in 1832 when he was head gardener for the then Duke & Duchess of Devonshire. It was the forerunner of our greenhouses of today and is now a grade 2 listed building.....Paxton went on to build the famous Chrystal Palace for the Great Exhibition of 1851.

 

Growing Sweet Peas

Hi, pinkquartet....sorry about your techie problems.

To answer your query, I think we need to go back to basics. Sweet peas are very hardy and more are ruined by coddling than neglect. Having said that, there are a couple of things to avoid, one is condensation (that applies to all seedlings though) and icy draughts.

From what you say, I think your aluminium greenhouse would be your best option, but be careful not to site them in the vicinity of the unclosed door.

Remember, they will survive frosts of -10c without any problem, just be careful to keep them on the dry side during very cold weather.

looks like you had good weather like us David, hope you had a nice day 

 

Yes, the weather was quite pleasant, Ann....unlike those poor people in the south of the country.

Hope your day was as you would have wished.
