PeterVery impressive :)One comment, the addition of your 'Badges of rank' item with it's mumerous pages means lots of scrolling down. I appreciate that you can collapse the various posts but it's something worth considering when posting, what do you think?Ron
Good point, Ron. Actually there I was testing to see how many images could be posted sequentially.I think a way around this would be to post the first image then add the rest in a 'comment'.Another way around this might be to leave it as it is but to alter the blog settings so that everything is taken from the front page and archived after a week; at the moment it is set for clearing and archiving after a month.
I have now set it so that only two postings appear at any given time. Older postings are removed to the side, so give all postings a good meaningful title.
Peter - at your back in the last of your TV premiere pictures, would that be a magnificent "Dogwood" - it does not look like a Wisteria - at least - not from this distance - whatever - it certainly is magnificent. We also have one on our front fence which I shall photograph when it next comes into bloom. There are so many variatios of this plant and it has been adopted as British Columbia's Provincial flower !
No, Tom, it's a Climbing Hydrangea. Or so the Memsahib assures me - I'm just the Chief Gardener's Assistant in these parts.I've been instructed to tell you that it is happier on a north facing wall.
Peter - a climbing hydrangea is a new one on me - many an Hydrandgea have i seen and can appreciate their longing for less sun than normal also a whiff of salt air everyday. I have two standard in my garden but nothing like yours. WE were fortunate to live in Highcliffe in the U.k. which is a few miles west of Lymington along the coast, where resides the Rothschild family with their 3000 cares of Hydrandgeas,Azaleas, and Rhododendrons - which is a magnificent spectacle all summer long - nearby was the Rhinefield Mansions with their 60' high Rhododenrons on each side of the driveway towards a fantsatic lunch on sundays !Happy days when we could enjoy the very best at our leisure - followed by a Devon cream tea at the New Forest thatched tearooms ! them was the days them was !tom
TomDid you click on the link for the climbing Hydrangea in my previous comment? If not, do so now.By the way, in these posts and comments, if you want to start a new paragraph with a clear break, press the Enter key twice, instead of once.You can also have a preview before finally posting. I'll Edit yours and tidy it up, we'll all soon get the hang of this. I'll have to figure someway of being notified when there is an additional comment in a thread.Cheers!
Peter - I am now an expert on the merits of the Climbing Hydrandgea - just happen to have a spot on a North facing wall at the side of the house between two windows so I can view it without moving too far - in the spring I shall approaach our local Horticultural chappie for a sample. This position will give a full balst of the mornig sun and shade all after - unfortunately we are 75 miles from the coast and so the salt air is a bit dry by the time is reaches us - we'll see how it goes.
GentsCan we have a link to the Royal Horticultural Society ?Only asking... :)Ron
