Hi folks,

I'm on windows 10 but can't find anything that will resize my photos when I right click. 

Wonky I'll give it another try.  Daniel has helped me sort out the phone view that was appearing on my laptop.  I had to update firefox.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Planted up the hanging baskets and clipped box.  Greenhouse is starting to look very empty now.

Afternoon all,

Fairy, I've tried to resize by right clicking on the phot and there isn't an option to resize. 

Wonky I've had a go at resizing a picture using that site, it's a bit of a faff but here goes. Oh it said it had worked but the original picture is still in place, can't find a resized one in my photos.  Bit thick on the techy side.  Any idea where they go to once you have resized?

Sounds like a long trip Bushman but it's nice that you made the effort, so many people don't these days.

Used to sneak my dog into the bedroom when I was little, can't imagine what she used to bring in with her.  Yuk.  As an adult I've had 3 dogs and the only time they were allowed upstairs was for a bath.  As soon as they heard the word one would run up the stairs the other two would hide shivering under the nearest piece of furniture.

Haven't watched the Chelsea coverage from last night.  I suspect the Hepatic guy was the owner of my local nursery/garden centre (Ashwoods)  I had heard that he was going to take them to Chelsea this year. I've recorded it so will watch it later. 

Off to sort out hanging baskets.

Used to be able to post photos but suddenly nothing happens when I try.  Its been like it for a week or so.  It wont post photos under 5 never mind larger ones.  I know the team are trying to sort things out, but things seem to be getting worse not better.

Evening all,  I love those fairies but haven't got the bank balance for one.

Feeling very fed up with the site at the moment.  Can't post photos, the view on my laptop is the one most get on their phones so everything is huge - photos wont fit on the page so can't view the whole of a photo in one go. Really missing first unread post.  Getting close to giving up.  Have reported the above on the appropriate thread.

Nora, it seems that you have fixed the problem with notifications, thanks for that.  Up until recently I had the normal PC view on my laptop with quite a bit of space down the right hand side where the adverts would normally be.  Over the last few days however, I now see the mobile phone view on my laptop.  This is quite unpleasant to view as it is very large, a lot of the photos have lost their crispness - I suspect that this is due to people having to use a much lower resolution as the site can't cope with higher ones anymore.   I think someone else is having this problem - can't remember who it is though.

I use Firefox as my browser.

On phone so sorry for mistakes.  Sorry to hear about all the sad news. I'm taping Chelsea so can't comment yet.  Went to St Peters GC near Worcester this morning to look at pretties with grandaughter.  Didn't buy anything, it's difficult to concentrate with a 2 year old.  Cake was good though 😀

I cut mind down after the first flowering and feed them.  They look a lot healthier and sometimes I get a second flowering, although obviously nothing like the first.
