Your Euonymus photo is a very useful illustration of ground cover. :o)

23 Feb, 2010

 

You're being kept very busy TT.
I've never nominated anything for any category lol. Maybe I should.

23 Feb, 2010

 

Hello Hywel... yes, you should....
I'm sure Blodyn's photos would qualify for a number of interesting categories..LOL.

23 Feb, 2010

 

Maybe someone else has nominated them :o) But I'll do some later on.

23 Feb, 2010

23 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks, Holly...
Yes, nominating your own pics will actually make things easier for editors..
A while back, Bernieh was trying to point out for me which of her photos were Spring Blossom category, and it would have been so much easier for both of us, if she could have nominated her own pics...

23 Feb, 2010

... my hard-drive is full.... I can use that for if I forget shopping, if I break something when washing up....
...not my fault..... "my hard-drive was full" LOL...

23 Feb, 2010

 

I`ve found GOYpedia really useful when it comes to trying out new plants. I`ve learnt so much just being a member of GOY that I can`t imagination not being able to log on everyday. :o)

Sandra x

23 Feb, 2010

 

Hi Sandra...
I must admit that I learn a lot by being a GoYpedia editor... especially with the houseleeks... I look at the pics and then I have to think about whether or not it is a houseleek Lol...

Yes, I would miss GoY.... I don't like it if my internet connection isn't working for even a few hours..LOL. x

23 Feb, 2010

23 Feb, 2010

 

busy busy busy TT.....well sone u..;-)

24 Feb, 2010

 

Well done on the Evergreens, Alice...
Would it be a big task to separate out the climbers and have an Evergreen Climbers page ?
One my of GoY questions is asking specifically about Evergreen Climbers....

24 Feb, 2010

 

Hi Jac...
Yes, members have access to the two GoYpedia lists for scrolling down to select where they would like to nominate a photo, blog or question....
... but it would be easier for members if there were also a page with a full list of all categories available under the GoYpedia....
... I think Peter has this plan in the pipeline...

24 Feb, 2010

 

Hello Lincslass....

This morning, GoY had an "outage" ...not outRAGE lol....
...for 45 mins ...
.... and I got lots of work done...LOL.

Glad you like the blog... lots of fascinating categories on Goypedia now...

Thanks, Sandra.... yes, I've been busy again !

24 Feb, 2010

 

I'll check out evergreen climbers TT.....not sure if there will be enough to make a decent showing on a separate page....have only come across a few so far....will get back to you....

24 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks, Alice ...
... please put a comment on here when you decide...
I have Trachelospermum jasminoides (above in the pics) and also Clematis armandii pics, and some others, on my photo pages .... I'll nominate them...:o)

24 Feb, 2010

 

thank you TT..

24 Feb, 2010

 

I've had a look at evergreen climbers TT....and think there is enough to make a separate page....I'd forgotten about ivies, and I know there are lots of lovely images to choose from. I've mailed Ajay and Peter and asked them to add it......thank you for the suggestion!!

24 Feb, 2010

 

Hello Alice...
I've just sent you a number of evergreen nominations...

Thanks for deciding to edit the evergreen climbers page...
I reckon it will be a GoYpedia category that I'll visit very often.. :o)

24 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks for the nominations TT...

24 Feb, 2010

 

What a busy bee you are, TT - and what a good job you are doing along with the other editors. I have used the nominate button a couple of times but should use it more. I promise I will try harder in future :)

24 Feb, 2010

 

Hello Gee...
I'm learning lots from being a GoYpedia editor...
yes, please, nominate your photos, blogs and questions...
...and those of other members. :o)
Do you have any Evergreen Climbers for Amblealice ? ..
..and Weed Suppressing Membranes for me.. ? Lol..

24 Feb, 2010

 

I certainly have some evergreen climbers, TT but the only membrane I have is well hidden under my gravel beds which run down one side in the front garden :)

24 Feb, 2010

 

I'm putting the gravel gardens on WSM category, if I know they have membrane underneath, so that members can see how the areas look when finished...
I hope eventually, if people know I have the WSM page, they will take photos when they lay the membrane... Alice did this on her allotment... took pics of the membrane ! Lol.

Do you have photos of that gravel area on GoY, please Gee....?
.. if so, please nominate them. Thanks :o)

24 Feb, 2010

 

It is going to be a marvelous help now members can nominate their own pics....thank you all, in anticipation....lol

24 Feb, 2010

 

well done TT,doing a fab job for Goy.keep up the hard work and thanks,very much appreciated x

24 Feb, 2010

Lovely blog, TT, as ever! :) Think, you are very busy with all those categories of yours.

24 Feb, 2010

 

I don't think I have put any photos of the gravel areas on yet but I will take some in the near future, TT, just for you :)

24 Feb, 2010

 

Well done TT all really intresting, I have three gravel areas I will put on when the weather gets better, just had a long rockery made last week with gravel but its needing a bit of life to it, plants etc, thanks for all your hard work,

25 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks, Yorkshire...
Are you saying you have gravel areas to go on Gravel Garden Ideas.... or do they have membranes, so can go on Weed Suppressing Membranes as well ?

25 Feb, 2010

 

two of the gravel areas have membranes Tt but we can plant in the latest rockery, so they can go on both garden ideas, will get some pics as soon as weather picks up.

25 Feb, 2010

 

Thank you, Yorkshire.... that will be helpful :o)

25 Feb, 2010

 

Well done again Tt, a big thankyou to you and the other editors who work so hard to make our enjoyment of our Goy site more enjoyable and informative. Will I ever get any work done though??? :-)))

25 Feb, 2010

 

Gosh, I dunno how I missed this (been concentrating on pics and questions, though, recently). Many Thanks, Tt, for your update. Your " butt" page would also fit nicely into "storage ideas", methinks? Also "barrels" reminds me that I need to me some :-))

27 Feb, 2010

 

Hi David..
From the comments, it seems this blog encouraged some members to have a go at nominating to GoYpedia for the first time. Nice to have the nominations...:o)

Good idea to add some of the water butt items to "storage".
I'll do that.

I'm pleased you like this blog. x
