I thimk the imagination of the photographer prob determines how good the picture is.  For me, framing is important ..viz.  to get everything you want in the picture. Im sure attending a short course will give me greater insight.

We naturally consider everyone no longer with us I think.  Most of us have a natural empathy that is ESP focused at  this time.  

HELLO FORKERS!

Evening everyone.

 Nice GH mrs garden.,,bet you are chuffed with it.,, looks excellent 

I enjoy the RHS mag too...gardeners world mag isn't great now.

Hi punkdoc.,,get well soon.  

I tend to know ...roughly...where plants are to go except when I buy spontaneously.  Then it's a problem...know I want it but where do I plant it?

I'm always planning my garden or sometimes someone else's Matty and nut.  Yes it's great escapism.  Bit fussy though I think...trying always for the perfect planting mix.  Some times  it works sometimes not. And I like to try for a bit of a "risk" now and then.

Talking about seed packets having less seed I was reading about the computer ink "scams". Less ink and higher prices and an insistence by the printer manufacturers that we use their own ink.  I bought a Kodak printer last year...expensive printer but cheap ink.  Beginning to misbehave a bit so wanted a replacement under its warranty. Kodak now stopped making printers.  Suspect some foul.play there. Consumers always conned 

Raised bed and breeding my own slugs!!

Nematodes effective for a few weeks only.  They supplement those already in the soil......increasing the numbers really.  They are expensive and, if applied twice a year in early spring and  late summer/early autumn, should reduce slug population over time.  I tend to "target" certain areas....it would cost a fortune to treat whole garden...with nematodes.  I use them as part of nighttime torch vigils.

Remembrance Sunday

Dont  think anyone will even be thinking of posting on the forum at that time Brum.  Most everyone I know respects .....has always respected .......Remembrance Sunday.  It's a  time that needs no reminding of, personally or globally. 

This week it's been a personal remembrance time ...just like most everybody, we have  respect , sadness and honour for ALL loss of life ........that we just don't forget.

Narurally at that time on Remembrance Sunday I'm sure those two minutes of silence will include our own private thoughts 

Worst Winter ....... .?

Serious stuff......no! Really

Hello FORKERS.  Think we agree....you're a very nice person Dove. 

Well, it looks reasonable this morn.  Expected yesterday to be a lovely day but it was not.  Today I will get some plantImg done . Probably,  after Sunday njght's storm, many plants will be flattened so it will herald the big cut down and clear up.  Shame....as with most everyone else, garden is full of flower.
