Doris - I upload my photos to photobucket then click on the  Direct Link line.Click the tree symbol  in the GW message box which will bring another page up - then click on external link  and then paste into the box. It took me ages to get photos on here but this works for me

Amazing photos steephill

I am rubbish at taking Wildlife pics as you will see

I noticed these spiders yesterday

 I am worried about this beautiful Bee - it was on the same flower for a very long time yesterday I haven't been down to check yet if it is still there today

I hope you get your job Flowerchild I rescued a grafted Plum Tomato plant the other day for 20p reduced from £3.99  The lower leaves look rubbish but the new growth is fine  I am growing grafted Aubergines and Peppers this year for the first time so I will be interested to see how the tomato does

The bedding plants are now out of the greenhouses

Bob is a Dracaena marginata - I would let the compost dry out a bit and put him somewhere bright but not direct sunlight and do as Averil says - give hime a mist now and then - I hope he recovers

This year I've gone seed planting mad! (Poppies, Rudbeckias, Sunflowers, Helicrysums, Branchycome Daisies & various veggies too) My windowsils are full. Brachycome Daisies are growing well but long & leggy. Can anyone tell me if they are a trailing plant please? Thank you.

Brachycombe is a very pretty trailing plant - trimming it back will help it to bush out  I take cuttings from my plants at the end of the summer for the following year and in the Spring if they are getting a bit unruly have been known to take the scissors to them without any detrimental effect

The first one is an Aeonium and the second one looks like a Potentilla  If your niece can spare one of the rosettes of the Aeonium you can put it into some compost and it will root
