    My latest joy is these snaps from the parks I visited yesterday .. Very common foxgloves, but their markings are so beautiful ..SAM_0076.JPGSAM_0064.JPG

    :Wino::Wino::Wino: I have waited 3 years for these and the camera promptly turned its colour yellow. Please look at it with an orange tint. It is a gorgeous orange .. Apologies for fake colour .. Need a new camera.

        Lovely pics folks :)
        Wet here.........reasonably gentle so should percolate well into the soil. It was refreshing to feel the rain but I opted not to walk to the beach earlier :yahoo:
        Enjoy your day everyone :)

          Good morning, @Logan I admire your skill handling a tiny phone. I can't even use my finger to stop the alarm, not to say typing or taking pics..

          Good morning, @Verdun You live near a beach, lucky you! I live near an exhaust fume-filled busy "lane"! Have a good day, sir!

              That's good, glad you tackled the doorstep and got out into the garden:yay:.

              I'm fine thanks, leg is very tender, but now all the planting out is done and dusted I can ease up a bit now........well that's the plan :dbgrtmb:.

              Have a lovely day:)

                      Hi Guys and Gals, since you seem to be making good use of this thread I thought it might be better as a "Sticky Thread" so that you can always find it at the top of the forum page.:coffee::snorky:
