The pix I saw were magnificent David. So were the price tags!  

I know there's a general feeling that photos shouldn't be as expensive as paintings, but you only have to look at them to see why they cost so much. It's such an art. I'm always astonished at some of the photos hillwalkers post on the walking site I use. They take your breath away. Glorious.

Yes - good for seeing off bugs Tetley. We're always pleased to have some frost because it's a welcome change from rain! 

Anybody else got a funny looking forum or is it just me?

David - I think she'd have eaten all the desserts before you had any chance of one! 

Reginald's a very handsome chap Dove. You need someone to make you laugh too

Lovely David. I took a look at your link re the lenses. very informative, although I suppose it's not applicable for the camera I currently have. I often look at the selection of photos people submit each week on the BBC Scotland news site, and I found a link or two I looked at. One was to a landscape photographer called Charlie Waite - stunning photos!

Glad your heather's been lucky B'man 

I'd agree with you re the burning on some hills. I know many people get worked up about game shooting etc but the amount of wildlife on our hills is huge, and management aids that. It's a different way of life in remote areas - it's not like living in the middle of a big town.

Flumpy - Verdun is just having a joke - pretending pancake day is next week. 

He's a very naughty elf and will have to have his doughnuts rationed....

I'm off to scrape the car - have a good day everyone  

Lesley - I never remember to cut them back either - that's why I don't like them - mine always look rubbish! 

lettuce tips?

I find it easier in containers Marc. We get a lot of rain and therefore a lot of slugs here! 

How about trying something else - like thyme  - if you're keen to edge the bed?
