uploading photoe's

This is a post in reply to  a similar query earlier

Birdy13 wrote (see)

I have no problem on my iPad and have answered this problem on another thread. This is my reply copied and pasted across to here. I wonder whether you did as I did when first trying to upload - I didn't realise that after tapping the 'select' box I then actually had to choose where to select from. Anyway, the instructions: I hope I've not missed anything out:

Take a photo in the normal way on your iPad then go back onto this forum.

Tap the tree icon at the top of your posting window and then choose 'Select'.

Then choose ' Photo Library' and scroll through the 'mini pictures' of your photos for the one you want to post.

Tap on 'Upload' and then 'Save' . The photo should appear in your posting window at wherever you left the blinking cursor. then just complete writing your post as normal. You may get an off putting window of computer code come up after 'Save'. If so, just tap the message/ instruction at the bottom of the new window and wait until your photo appears (it's some sort of glitch that appeared a few weeks ago).

if the photo displays upside down you may have to go back into your Photo library to 'edit' the photo by cropping it to a bit smaller size. For some reason that seems to sort out the upside down issue.

Hope that helps

I think that this is the most serious issue Europe has had to face since WW2 and European governments must work together to deal with this ongoing crisis in a structured and properly thought-out way rather than being  emotional and reactive - the British government along, with most of Europe, has been woefully slow in understanding the nature of this crisis and is only now even beginning to address the complexity of the situation - but I refuse to let these difficulties take away my own humanity and I will respond to other humans in distress as best I can and I'm proud of my son for doing the same.

It's not because it's not great to eat that you don't eat it after June, but because the plant needs to build up its energy stores to produce stalks the next season.

All is explained here

It looks more like an hibiscus to me.

What do others think?

Moving an old gooseberry bush

I would take cuttings - I find gooseberries take very well from heeled cuttings. 

They also layer well from branches that touch the ground.

Think Fidgetbones is out of the country at the moment, so not online a lot - if this thread is kept bumped up on the front page I'm sure she'll see it when she gets back.  She's not gone for long.
