Or Fairygirl has my email address - if you have hers or she has yours we might be able to sort something out ........

Lacy phacelia purple tansy everywhere. Cruelty to bees.

Happy to have the phacelia flowers as they are and I'll see what I can do with them. 

The problem is that at the moment PMs aren't working so I can't send you my address ... we'll have to wait until the Tech Team have sorted it out.

Thanks for remembering

Adding a photo to an existing post

You can only edit (or add to) a post if there is not a subsequent post. 

To edit/add hover your cursor over the bottom right corner of the window containing your post and click on Edit - your post will then appear in another window and you can edit in there. 

To add a photo you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where your type your post.

Not sure of any particular iPad idiosyncrasies I'm afraid, but I'm sure someone who does will be along soon. 


Edited to add:  Lyn beat me to it - I stopped to answer the phone

In case you've not seen it, Nora's told us that the first step to improving the forum is happening today ... one of the things that slows the site down is the length of some of the threads - she's going to lock this Hello Forkers thread sometime very soon and start another one - and this will happen every time the thread gets to 1,000 posts or so. 

There'll be a link to take us straight to the new thread, and we'll still be able to read the old ones so we can refer back to earlier stuff

I think it's a really good idea - anything to make things go more smoothly.

She's also checking on progress re PMs and Avatars etc.

That's a really good plan Nora - anything to help speed page loading etc

Are you going to start Hello Forkers part two now?

Custard, cream or ice cream?

Just popped out and pruned the grapevine - that's one job ticked off the winter pruning list. 

Very soon I must:

  • cut the autumn raspberries down
  • prune the gooseberries
  • prune the fig
  • prune some clematis
  • prune the roses
  • cut/restrain some honeysuckles
  • make rhubarb crumble - it's almost ready!!!

Walsingham Abbey is lovely and not very far from us, but I rarely go because whenever I've been at snowdrop time the parking is abysmal - there have been occasions when we've given up and just driven to the coast rather than try to find somewhere to park. 

I could do a Saturday .......... what do people think?
