sorry clicked button when i was trying to show ubby the piccies..

@daintiness.. that camera sounds better.. 42 x zoom.. but be careful on how the lense manages to balance when full out.. they are such great cameras.. thou saying that.. my samsung is great as it has massive pixel level so can zoom into the picutre many times.. but all in all if you like snapping away they are the best.. nikon that is.. even the little pocket coolpix ones are good.. got my daughter one for xmas.. and was tempted to keep it for myself..  great touch screen use on it. and large back screen for viewing for such a small camera

but which ever camaera you sue.. please keep adding the picture.. they are lovely to see.

wintersong.. you have worn me out just reading it 

as it was warm here..but no sun still after tea today..i got in garden. and oh my has everything gone mad.. i stood looking at it..and looks so messy.. everything has shot up and filled out.. and somethings are not in right marked them for moving later..

my penstemons htat my mum hacked back have filled out and are starting to flower so she is forgiven had to cut down most of my foxgloves as they were flattened.. such a shame.. saw some huge bumblebees in the garden today..

and they say tomorrow will  be good and dry for half out there again.. i cant remember the last time it was june and i had not been in the garden everyday..

hope to mow lawn at weekend.. well hubby will

@daintiness.. yes it is one of the best..thou i must warn you it can get a bit shaky when out on full zoom.. need to hold lense..but still takes a super picture.. still one of the best buys in my view for an easy point and snap..

nothing beats it.

hi everyone.. it has been rotten weather of late.. all my foxgloves have been beaten to the ground and my delphiniums have all bar 1 broken off.. everything has been whip lashed winds got up to 70 miles an ahour here..

my poor roses have been bent over and their lovely large heads have lost all their petals.. and my bottle brush which looks like it will be smoothered in flowers this year.. has been battered down.

very bad indeed.. most of my veg have stopped growing without the sun. and dont see no let up in this weather.. i know i wanted rain..but not all the time

hope to get out and do some dead heading etc tom.

moss on the lawn

i have had mossy lawn for years as always in the shade.. i did in the end go to Green Thumb..and for my large lawn(63ft x 45ft) cost me £15.00 a treatment.. which is the strong chemical treatment.. only they a registered users can use.. and a feed treatment.. killed all my moss and now i have them come 4 times a year..

much cheaper than buying the stuff in shops..
