Phormium, Libertia with a bit of sun on them, and Clem Niobe budding up behind them. Daffs still coming out.

Good result Hosta  

I've just put this on the updated forum thingy thread for obelixx, but if you right click on the photo, wherever you have them on the 'pooter', and you get an option to resize.  I use Windows but I expect they're all similar. Mine has small, med and large as well as custom, but large makes them around 1mb so it's fine. It will save the extra image. It's a bit of a pain not having the option to load from an external site. I never had a problem no matter what size of photo, and some were around 7 or 8 mb. Surely we could have retained that and just added the new one for people with phones etc.... 

Unpleasant T'bird 

I'm taking it easy today. I'm saving myself for the supposedly better weather tomorrow to get on outside. 

Some light household duties and steam cleaning is as much as I'm doing.

Not long ago, the Government Health 'high heid yins' were promising so many thousand new doctors, nurses etc by 2020.

As someone in the medical profession then pointed out, since they don't have that number in training at this point, how were they going to magically have fully trained ones in a few years time....

What's that saying about lies, damned lies and statistics?

It's a bit faffy, but it's ok unless you have hundreds of photos to post!

I may have to alter the settings on my camera though, as most are around 4mb to start with.

I remember you saying that obelixx - about the hailstorm. Incredible that it can do so much damage if you still have evidence on trees and shrubs 

I'd opt for the RSPB reserve, but I think you'll enjoy your day whatever you choose doc.  Hope the weather stays benign though. 

Congrats to the Mynxes. Hope you have a  lovely day  

Can you do my ironing too  GWRS? Oh -  I don't have any

obelixx- if the photos are over 5mb you have to resize, but at the moment nothing over 2mb is loading. If you right click on the photo you want to load, it should bring up an option to resize. If you use Windows Photo Library to keep your pix in, there's an option in 'Edit'  to resize them too. 

That's what I've been doing and it keeps a copy along with the original so that you can choose the appropriate one for  loading. You can resize by choosing small, med or large, or custom size them. Large seems fine as it brings them to around 1mb or a bit smaller.I don't what the other operating systems are like but I expect they're all pretty similar. 

Most of my photos are too big but it wasn't a problem before, using the external site to post. 

Problems with sweet peas

Is the ground you're planting into unsuitable, or the site they're in? They need good rich moist soil so if the potted ones are ok, it suggests the ground isn't right. Do you have any photos Rob? That might help with a diagnosis
