A Child is Born


Not a real child you understand – that really would be a step too far at my age, no, I mean I have finally managed to work out how to create a video of my garden with my little camera AND publish the video to YouTube ((am I allowed to say that here?).

Please don’t laugh – it has taken me 13 days to get my grey matter into gear to make this happen. So I should be able to post clips here I expect but I don’t know how to do that yet and I am exhausted – I have been sweating on this since 9am this morning (apart from quick forays to make a cuppa and put more washing in the machine).

Please visit me on my blog on and let me know what you think. Perhaps I am a budding Cecil B DeMille, except I am not a man and he was half my age when he directed his first famous film.
Never mind – I tried.

Enjoyed your video - your garden looks great with lots of lovely spring colour. Loved the birdsong that accompanied the view around your garden - not bad for an oldie!

Just had a look, well done you. I managed to do three last year and embed them on here. If you have a look through my blogs you will find all three. They are called garden tour 1,2 & 3.

Well ... I found your tour; it puts mine to shame but now I know what to do I will persevere. I must tidy up a bit before I have another go! Thanks for the positive comments, I am now raring to get going again.

Oh no, I've only just worked out how to transfer photographs from my camera to the computer and send them to GoY. Now, of course, I shall have to find out how to watch your videos because I would love to see the tours.A new challege every day on GoY.
