Why did Chris do that?

Beechgrove is on a Thursday night here sanjy -other parts of UK on Sunday although I think it's shown on  a Sky channel on Thursdays too.


Verd - I'd have taken the whole lot out frankly.....


And it won't resemble a hillside either -  no matter how hard he tries! 

Ponds with rock edging and pebbles

Insects and butterflies too BL.  I agree with the others Lucid, the internet can be very useful but it can also fill you with unnecessary fear. I think a beach would only be an issue if it was enormous and there was no other cover around. Not likely in a standard garden pond. If you're really worried, an arching grass or sedge nearby will add some shade to the pebbled area, but I don't think you need it  


Once you have the plants in place, it will be great. Loads of wildlife will use it. Enjoy

Loving the compact list of threads too. That's probably one of the best fixes as it was one of the biggest bugbears. Hope you all get a quieter weekend this week 


I still have a problem with photo posting though - it's a bit hit and miss. Sometimes need a few goes to get it to work.  Can't upload anything bigger than 2 or 3 Mb. Hopefully that will be better soon though. 

Camera Talk

Gorgeous Sheps. There's no doubt the quality of the camera helps with such a detailed subject!


There's one (or two maybe)  that hangs around the burn near where I work but I don't go round that bit really. I suppose I should, because it's apparently there a lot. Would be nice to get a pic if possible.


Hope you find a suitable camera GD. Mine was under  £100, reduced from about £140. I know Hostafan got a good one recently too - don't know if David can remember which one it was. Mine is a bit heavier than my old one but I'm used to it now. I wondered if I'd made a mistake and should have got one of the small ones - just because it's all extra weight to lug up hills, but I think it was worth it for the better zoom and features.

Nora - the 'back to normal size latest posts' layout is great. 


Thanks for addressing that - it's a great step in the right direction

Yes Steve - but only the 'we(e)' ones....


I've just clicked 'latest posts' and they're all nice and neat and squished again -  hurray!

Forget to say - lots of lovely recent pix here.  Makes you feel good  


Lp - this pic looks small when you upload,but it's fine once you post it.

LP - perhaps you could resize your pix on the computer before posting them. If you hover over them it'll give the size they are. If you use something like Windows editor it'll have a resize function, or you can right click on them and that should bring up a resize option. I have the opposite problem in that many of mine are too big.


The upload thingy seems a bit inconsistent too - at the moment I can't get anything bigger than 2mb to upload at all.   Most of the garden pix are less than that though.

We are indeed doc.....it's all that haggis....


and the biting...


Lovely here - shame I have no energy. I now have a roughcasted extension. It's broken shell, so the spillage will be good for digging into all the compacted soil  


Breezy here too Clari - but dry, which is always a bonus.
