Morning Ian,

You dont need to bring them the plessure of your company is more than enough.
Have a nice day :) :)

Regards,
Paul.

:-@

I have to say, this thing with judges visiting the gardens?! It's one thing to move the hose out of the picture (or at least to crop it out) but to tidy up? :lol:

Both photos are just gorgeous. I get so jealous when I see hyacinths - we just can't grow them up here.

Instead of just having the photos in the catalogue, I think they should become the actual 'advertising' photos for both varieties of bulbs.

The screensaver is a great idea, too. The GA website has wallpapers that you can download, which naturally have the GA logo on them.

Could be a nice little advertisement for GE!

(I too especially love your bee shot Midgin, I'm always on the lookout for insects in the garden to photograph, hopefully in my new garden I'll find plenty :lol: )
Well done both of you, beautiful photos!!!!!!!!

Now, now Paul - if you're having problems with the herbs, I'll send you some up... :roll: 8)

Pam, I haven't read that tidying is a part of the rules and regs... (best not to trip them over, though... )

Thank you one and all...... Bulbinella... I hope your new garden has heaps of ladybirds, frogs, bees and all the other good-guys.... I love all these little helpers... I have seen TWO blue butterflies lately... here I was complaining I hadn't seen them in years... maybe they are seasonal...
