Plant ID

It's relatively easy to recognise and pull up ... but you only have to miss one and you have hundreds of new plants spread over a wide area the following year.

Uploading Photos

Posted: 06/07/2017 at 15:57

No idea about Picasa ... but if you've got the photo on your device just click on the camera icon and follow the instructions.  If it doesn't upload try reducing the size.

There were some gremlins about yesterday, which affected the uploading of pics, but they appear to have been dealt with.

The loving care of good staff in a good home is worth it's weight in gold Liri   ...   I could not have given my parents the quality of life they had at The Lovely Home.  

Goodness me!   just when you think the thunder and lightning couldn't get any more fierce and the rain couldn't get any heavier ............... it jolly well does 

  If I had china on my non existent mantlepiece it'd be rattling  !!!!!!!!!!!!
