Ok-  I give up, all my usual forum knowledge to get pics up has been defeated!

Hi Nell, I had a look at the code of your shots in the database.

It is missing the Width and Height dimensions. I thought that the

code in the box in Photobucket that starts with [IMG]http://

automatically supplied the dimensions, but maybe I am wrong.

"<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v482/

debobrad/WALES%20property/IMG_4569.jpg" width="1023" height="682" /> "

 

If I have time this evening I will adjust them. I did that for the

first shot on the previous page.

Thanks for that. I would do it but I do not appear to be able to edit my own

posts. I can until someone replies and I then lose the edit button.

How do I edit my own posts?

You can't Nell, after somebody has responded.

That is a simple device to prevent argumentative types from going

back and changing what they wrote in the first place.

Don't worry, and thanks for taking the time and trouble to posts

those photos. Your pond area looks really attractive.

Sorry been absent trying to tackle more jobs, have removed bindweed from

two long main raised beds, and will be covering it for the winter.

Also been tackling a hugely overgrown area, and fallen trees to secure

the fencing to contain the dogs who keep insisting on patrolling the

lane outside!

Damsons still going strong, apples aplenty, now found sloes, and

rosehips, and just discovered we have hawthorn berries too.

Need to work out what to do with those!

Hope to be getting our first critters this week. Some Indian

runner ducks¦hope they like their new home.

You've been a busy girl.  No need to worry about finding things to do with your

wild harvest, just look on the forum, lots of recipes and tips for making things.

I'll try that again!

We also have a walnut tree, and got the grand total of 2 this year, apparently that was double last years, and that one the squirrel had! Also found a sad pear tree, with only one lonesome pear on it. So that needs some tlc.


 Ooh - a little nut tree and a lonesome pear - I feel a nursery rhyme coming onwhistle  I'm really envious of anyone who has any kind of fruit tree. - I have to resort to foraging.

I can't see any piccies yet, but hope to catch up on them soon.  I have no digicamera (I have no camera, full stop!) but since finding this website I can see what an impressive contribution photos can make.   Our local library offers a 10 week courses on digi photography for beginners, so I'm sorely tempted to ask Father Christmas .... 

A belated welcome from me, littelnell.  A word of warning - don't stray onto the Sunlounger thread - you will find that's where all the nutters hang out, and you seriously don't have the time to keep up with all their daft banter.big_laugh

Gone crazy. Back soon.
