It's an ongoing thread where we just chat about all sorts of stuff Chris. We can dip in and out and talk about non gardening matters, tell jokes, ask questions about cake, tv, music cameras, decorating , Christmas and ...well, you get the picture 

and we frequently don't make sense!

Hosta - brilliant

Thank you Lesley - very kind 

The first two pix are with  my new camera - it's a Fuji FinePix bridge camera - model S8650. It was around £85/90 reduced from about £130/140. I'd intended getting one of the lightweight, slim ones - easier for carrying - but this one seemed such good value. I love the panoramic facility on it and I'm getting used to the heavier weight of it!  Hosta's is a terrific buy - much better zoom than mine. If I'd waited a few months it would have been perfect, but I'd have to have gone back and done all those hills again

My previous one was an Olympus, and I'd had it for many years so it owed me nothing. It was heavier on power - the only drawback. The 3rd and 4th pix were taken with it. I loved it, but it's currently languishing half way down Cam Chreag in Glen Lochy just now   

Anyone else still mowing??

You need a small flock of sheep instead Hosta - especially as you're getting a bit long in the tooth

Course it does! It's worthy of a 'winter month' calendar shot
