TA your garden pics are lovely; a real reminder of the uk; here in France most people just have a 'lawn' ; I am considered very odd for having a garden!!

I'm off to have a look at your photos joanna!!


Sounds like a determined man Shelley, good for him.

Here in Latvia they love their flowers and although they grow vegetables because they have to sometimes they grow loads of flowers for the sheer love of it. Cheers

Looking good Kate, love the raised beds.   I wasn't able to enlarge the pictures, Photobucket hates me, but I will try again tomorrow.  (I also like the name Andrewvonkatt, very droll.)Big_LaughBig_Laugh

I thank you one and allBig_Hug......the first one is my front garden, which is a proper sized garden.

TA Toffeeapple  how did you use your magic to get the pictures on instead of a just a link AND with the enlargey thing too?

I know I managed to get pictures up of my watercolour sketches up the other day, but can I remember how the hell I managed it ( afetr many attemptsSteam)?

Can I heck!DohDohDoh

It's a knack!  Big_Laugh  Toffeeapple   

Go to Photobucket, put your cursor over the picture and a list of options opens underneath, click on the second one - Direct Link - right click to copy, come back to the forum, click the 'tree' icon at the top of the page, paste the URL into the box then click on insert - et voilà!  C'est simple...Magic

I'll try that again!
