David K thank you so much. Some useful information there. I think perhaps to start the point and shoot option would be the most practical so I'll look into the Canon Powershot. Thanks again.

Hi all,

Its the first time I've seen this thread and its fantastic, what stunning pictures. Thank you all so much I've really enjoyed it. No pics to add from me but some advice would be appreciated if you don't mind. OH wants a camera for Christmas but I've no idea which would be best? He wants if for taking pics of garden and inanimate objects that don't move but also wants to be able to take pics of fast moving things such as the birds in the garden so I'm guessing something that allows high speed pics and it would also need to have a pretty good zoom and something similar to auto focus (he cant keep a camera still!). Any advice or recommendations greatly appreciated. Then I might be able to upload some of the results here. Heather x

I wouldn't know what to suggest for you Mary but good luck with that. Terribly sad reason for the garden but what a lovely thing to do. I'm sure it'll be a fantastic place to go to and see and reflect whatever you plant there x

what's still flowering in your garden?

Posted: 13/11/2013 at 13:34

I've still got Geraniums flowering at the moment. Suspect it won't be for much longer though. Getting very very cold now. We had our first frost of the year this morning and the forecast for the next week is colder and colder with overnight temps dropping into minus figures by mid next week. Brrr. Not looking forward to it. Nor to the lack of any flowers. I really need to get my border sorted with some flowering plants for next autumn and winter.

I've had a reminder for this for weeks. Can't wait. I love these sort of programms, find them totally addictive and to be honest far more informative than any number of hours spent poring over books or god forbid the internet! Hope you all enjoy it.

These guys sprang back up yesterday!

Agreed Dave, far too much packaging on everything, I'd rather have everything wrapped up in brown paper which is easily bio-degradable. I shoulda been born in the late 1800's!! x

There are?! Oh my god I've been so misinformed lol who do I complain to?! Well in that case all I can say is I've never seen one (thank fully!), or maybe I have and I just dont' know it. Full body shudder going on now. I'll have to be even more careful about checking my footwear before I put them on

Climate change is an issue that constantly crops up, or seemingly becoming newsworthy every other day for some reason or other. I have a problem with Climate Change. Agreed, there are some very basic things that we can all do to avoid the systematic "man-made" destruction of our planet BUT, and this is what the scientists seem all to keen to forget or gloss over, this planet of ours has been in existence an awfully long time and in comparison man has been around about the length of a single strand of straw in the worlds largest hay bale and in all that time its been turning, cooling down, heating up, cooling down and heating up. Its done this since the birth of the planet and will continue to do so. So whilst I recognise that Climate Change and Global Warming are causes for concern, man is responsible for such a small percentage of it and none of us can control mother nature! Morning all!
