Have finished off planting pots.   Cut back winter honeysuckle and camelias now they have finished flowering.

Lawns cut and edged.

Pulled up an excess of forget me not and generally tidied round.

Evening all,  Had a lovely couple of days.  Yesterday was spent at firstborn's with all the grandchildren, including new baby, so lots and lots of cuddles.

A few glasses of wine plus a chinese meal wrapped the day up nicely.  I am now officially 27 and have a day at Harewood, plus an afternoon tea at a Cotswold Hotel to look forward to next month.  Also had £100 in gardening vouchers so I can spend, spend, spend.

Today was spent in the garden finishing off pot planting.  Very excited as irises have flowered, they have been in the garden for two years and this is the first time they have flowered.  They are lovely, have taken a picture but not sure if I can post it.

Good luck at work Hosta.

Hope you feel better soon Fairy.

Well I did it, but what an awful faff.  Certainly wont be doing many of them.  Used to post photos all the time.

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.

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.
