HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

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.

Progress update

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.

Chelsea 2016 coverage.

Just watching the first episode of coverage.  I agree, considering how much there is to see at chelsea we do tend to get shown the same bit over and over again.  We'll just have to see how it goes this year.

Sweet Pea Know How

Lovely photos everyone.  Thanks to David's advice in the past, my sweet peas are doing well this year. About 18inches tall.  I've grown the old fashioned varieties this year for the first time so hopefully will get lots of perfume.
