Potted Colour Garden

Postby Pokie » Mon Jun 05, 2006 9:26 pm

All these I bought as seedlings and are now growing beautifully with only one feed of seasol. The bulbs that look like weeds in the big planter are there by mistake but I think it will look even better when flowering. :D

The will be the last pic I post in this Comp!

Sorry about the size, have no idea how to scale down, even after looking at Damien's post so if a mod could please do it for me I'd be very grateful. :D

Pokie, they look really healthy..the little purple & yellow flowers in the rectangular pot..are they called "heartsies"?

Patricia, I love your signature!

Pokie, I don't really know how to resize them - I normally do it in Irfanview before I upload to photobucket. If the forums used html I could probably help, but with this I am lost. Maybe the faq's at Photobucket might have the answer?!

Lovely collection, Pokie, and it looks like you'll have great colour for a long time - please don't make this the last pic!!!! :D :D

Yani, I love your 'green hands' comment - very apt! (Y) :lol:

(And, Pokie, I don't know that Photobucket has a re-size facility, only if you upload them bigger than their limits - which seem to increase all the time - so you might want to look at getting some kind of imaging program for your computer. I believe that there are lots of freebies out there, possibly limited only by their specific features.)

No, Ive posted too mnay photos in this comp. I was planning to have colour until Mid Spring and looks like that might happen. :)

Every year I try and fail but this year I am putting the plants in the sun for a while before I put them in the shady pergola where I want them. :D

Pokie, there is a freebie program on the web that you can use to upload/resize your photos etc...google "image shack"...that is what I use!!
