Daphne 'Eternal Fragrance'... this is it's 2nd flush this year...


Hebe 'Blue Star' - a nice little Hebe with blue-ish foliage...


Eugenia foliage - similar to Photinia..but this is a kind of Aug-Dec.


Lavatera 'Mary Hope'... a shorter form of 'Barnsley'.. bit bedraggled from the rain...


Clematis viticella's Minuet and Etoile Violette...intermingled...




Posted: 28/06/2014 at 20:13 I said earlier...but I'm not going to labour the point further as it seems some people just don't want to acknowledge it... there is no need to change your settings to 'basic editor' if you are using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, but are prepared to download and install Adblock Plus.... which is simple and gives you a quick fix.... full service will be resumed straight away.... otherwise, if you change your settings, it will be text service only and you will have to wait for the admin to fix it...

..up to the user what you do...

..I'm fixed....with I said,  but thanks anyway... others might be interested in that..  I suppose I had better do one of these....

..ok..just to update for information purposes... I've just installed Adblock Plus on Internet Explorer and now the problem has disappeared on this browser... so if anyone is unable to post but reading this, I recommend you install Adblock Plus on whichever browser you are using, and it should resolve the problem...'s free and easy to install...and safe...

..which web browser are you using?... I use both IE and Mozilla at different times, but with Mozilla I also have adblock...I suspected the advert might be causing a problem as I don't have adblock with IE at the moment so I see it on there...and it's with IE that the problem occurs...and cannot post using that browser.... but no problems with Mozilla...

..whatever they are looking at...they should be made aware of this difference I think...

..or perhaps I don't suppose they really want people to use adblock...

..the problem is nothing to do with your settings, and there is no need to change any of them I think... in fact you should stick with 'advanced editor'...however, the problem is caused by an issue with Internet Explorer... anyone using this browser will have problems will not be able to put a 'cursor' in the box to type nor will you have any options like smilies etc..

...if you use another browser such as Mozilla Firefox, and I expect Chrome... then the problem will disappear....

..I should add that this problem exists with all versions of IE from 9 to 11...
