 This morning, on the way to visit Nutcutlet, we stopped off in Market Deeping at a roadside plant stall to beat all roadside plant stalls - within a few minutes the owner was showing me around her back garden, introducing me to her cats and finding special shadelovers for my garden - as the car was almost full to bursting I only bought one plant, a Lamium orvala with lovely crushed raspberry coloured flowers but I shall be calling in again next time we visit MIL.  The owner even offered to water my plants when we go away on holiday - until she discovered we live 80 miles away.  She had hundreds of pots of cuttings and seedlings, some very choice plants at bargain prices - anyone in the area should visit - it's near Tescos in Market Deeping.

No AA normal batteries they are meant to last for a month - depends on user interval program as 10 sec and 30 sec the camera can't sleep in between but the other setting it can so saves battery power and you can set start and finish times. prob will get some of those batteries later on

Good Evening FORKERS

Was a lot of money here the website and also had to buy memory card and batteries separately but the camera is quite large but worth the money I think and the memory card you can keep re-using once on the computer
