My New Digital Camera


By mad


Well, I have it now – and there are signs of the primroses coming back so I have the best of both worlds! I’ve had lots of problems trying to download pictures, never mind taking them and what I have taken are not very good. I’m sure I’ll improve.
The green shoots are among the bark mulch, you need to look hard!
The Arum hasn’t flowered for two years, but this looks like one coming – as late as September.
The rescued Camelia (again look hard) was in a pot and was yellowing and seemed to stop growing, even though I fed it. Eventually I asked Mr. Mad to plant it among the conifers with plenty of ericaeceous compost and well-rotted manure and it has grown at least 1ft in about 4 months. Maybe flowers in Spring eh?
By the way the pond is quite clear, although it doesn’t look it with all that Crispa pondweed. We have just three inherited goldfish including a white one. They are all called Bob.

The pond looks lovely and very clear water Mad and the primroses I can just spot, clever little things to come through the chippings.
