Morning all, you make me laugh Richard , what a brilliant idea to take a pic of your screen. Hope it's dethawed by now. Incredibly good deal by the way, 12 fuchsias for only 4 GBP! Sounds like you're starting afresh with the fuchsia collection, or do you have more? Chuckled when I read you had the same approach on figuring out how stuff works: take it apart and hope you can put it back together again. Do you also always have spare parts left when you're done?
Shame about the rain Carla, although I'm hoping we're going to get some soon here in NL, it's been dry for the last 3 weeks and at this time of year a nice spring shower would really help to get things started. You can find pics from last September of the allotment where I have a plot here. Didn't want to post anything from this year, again, as I've bored the others to tears with that bare looking stretch of sand already...
I heard from a colleague who is (happily) stranded in New York that there's quite a bit of over-anxious reporting about the ash clouds in the US. Apart from those people wanting to travel we aren't really affected by it. It's different closer to the volcano in Iceland of course, I wouldn't hang my washing out to dry there...
You're really getting the hang of that new camera Roger! Great pics of those pieris! Do read the manual though, it took me 2 years to find out that I could actually take good night shots! Speaking of good pics, that's a really good one of the blackbird chicks BB! Sweet of you to wait till they leave the nest till you place your shed! And did you all see the close-up of the bumble bee in Miranda's latest blog, wow!
I almost bought one of those digital SLR cameras last night but stuck to the plan and only bought the sat nav that was on sale. Spent 4 hours installing the software for the blasted thing! Plug & play? Yeah right... As for the camera, I'm waiting for my friend to lose interest in hers, honestly, she has the attention span of a forgetful gold fish, I'm sure she's going to be tempted by a newer model soon, so I'll buy her 'old' camera at a good price... Devious? Yes, but at least she gets something back for her old camera this way. Which reminds me, have to send her that link of the latest Canon...
Roundelder, I saw (part of a) piece on the follow up of the flooding in Cumbria last night. Good to see the bridge is open again, that must make life a bit easier. I hope things are getting back to normal and that everyone affected can slowly pick their lives back up. But there must still be loads of people waiting to get their pay-out from the insurance companies and their whole lives turned upside down...
Hey ho, must get back to work! Bye!
