How about more pictures with the posts?

Gardening and photography go hand in hand. It appears to me more photographs could accompany the written posted material.

This is the era of the digital camera, and posting pictures is almost as easy as posting written text. Many of the posts would have far greater impact with pictures attached.

Even the semi-commercial sites like photobucket, webshots, flicker, and others are better than nothing. This forum has the facility to display a few attached photos which can be useful for a few pictures.

Pictures would make the forum much more interesting in my unsolicited opinion. How about it fellow posters?

Photos to spice up gardening threads-I agree

I agree photos do enhance the postings that are made here. So... if I may share this with you that might help a little. A little piece I wrote for my home town Web newspaper in NJ.

[img]https://www.mycommunity.com/uploads/16887_0_GardenTours9.jpg[/img] Being 85 years old this past March 16, I'm not about to have this elaborite kind of garden. The photo Courtesy o Bressingham Gardens.. With all the snow of late my thoughts turned to visiting different Garden Tours in our Area. I don't travel too well any more but I can take you on this Tour with about 25 photos. Click the LINK .. it looks like a "Golf Course" layout... but easy to handle. Just start as instructed, click to the Red Dots one at a time ... read... close and continue. At least you will be nice warm as you do it. ...

Very nice. Visiting professional gardens is always a pleasure for me. The method of displaying is well done.
Thanks,

Re: Photos to spice up gardening threads-I agree

24 August 2006. When I started on this 0.4 acre property three years ago. it was poorly drained, heavy clay soil, covered in grass. Everything was done by myself, and I am constantly changing and "improving." There is no plan, I simply follow my old Saskatchewan farm boy instincts. Have a look. https://24Augusts2006.notlong.com All pictures are annotated in the lower left corner.

WOW!... GREAT PHOTOS... and lots of ideas that can be "borrowed". ...
Photos are a great help. Here is sample of what can be done if you have a large or small greenhouse with "hot beds" cold frames on the outside. Its size can be modified to what space you have available.

[img]https://www.ssawg.org/farmphotos/jones/images/may13_jpg.jpg[/img] Love March and April... and working with plugs for potting up hanging containers. Stay warm... D

I like the simply designed cold frames, well done. How do you heat the greenhouse?
Here is my Journal that has some more ideas.

"Durgan"I like the simply designed cold frames, well done. How do you heat the greenhouse? Durgan.
I run a "cool" green house... Minimum 45-50 dgreees with a couple of heated tables similar to this one for germination.

[img]https://www.ssawg.org/farmphotos/jones/images/may08_jpg.jpg[/img]
A little bigger than mine but essentially the same. I use plug sizes from 140 per 10x20 trays and/to 516 per 10x20 tray. I use very little heat by Electric heaters. I have a grower friend that gives me the 140 plugs size with various trailing petunias and others. That keep well in my little house.

So this time of year I pick up about 15-20 plug trays.... start preparing my hangers and 4" pots for transplanting. turn the radio on (Italian music of course) ... let the sun hit the greenhouse (goes up to 85-90} and may need venting. ... have a small glass of Italian wine.... and start my Spring time planting. :wink: .. :wink: .. :wink: .. and hope for one more Year in my Garden. Hope you have the same.

Durgan I was wondering how that greenhouse you have in the last pic. is doing for you. Is it holding up well, do you heat it all year round or keep any tropicals in it. I have been looking at that greenhouse but i do have a quite a few tropicals to over winter so it needs to be heated most of the year.

I only use it for March, April and May mostly for the light. I heat it with Natural Gas 6000 BTU so I can go down to about minus 10C, and possible even lower. When the sun shines, the grenhouse it gets very hot, so often the door is open during the day as is the roof vent. If some plants get too close to the outer wall on a very cold night the leaves may get a touch of frost. I am in Zone 5 so freezing is much more likely than in Vancouver. Mine is only 6 by 8, I think some similar are slightly larger.

The unit is very strong and if you modify it slightly with a door jam support, it can be improved. I screwed the base to 2 by 4's and anchored to railway ties, so it is easy to move around if necessary. It has stood up to some very strong winds with no problem for three years. It must be anchored securely.

The problem I encountered was the door flew open and the wind beat it for about 2 hours before I became aware. To improve insulation one could line the bottom three feet inside with foam rather easily.

The price was about 750 and I had it for three years. This one is probably a good bang for the buck. There are all kinds of possibilities, and to choose is very difficult. It is relatively easy to make one of your own design. Many of the home commercial ones concentrate on beauty at the expense of practicability.

Computer Whiz and Carpenter for Gardening

May I offer a suggestion... Unforunately to be a gardener today you need to be a carpenter and builder... and to share all our photos you need to be a computer Whiz... I'm neither... but have been lucky... Here is one photo from my garden.

[img]https://www.mycommunity.com/uploads/16889_1_GardenTour3Cordons.jpg[/img] These are a Cordons of Dwarf Peach Trees only 8 feet tall. Easy picking for my dear wife Mary and of course the Squirrels.
I edited this page. Perhaps I will restore it a later point.

Perhaps we could have a central gallery that photos could be uploaded to and we could all share from time to time. ...

Ways-to a Woman's Heart-Diamonds-Flowers-Greenhouse-or?

At 85 years of age may I give some Spring time advice to you young fellas? We all know that Diamonds is one way... Flowers... but, your best bet is to build her a little greenhouse. It works everytime. As far as the flowers are conderned this is the best I can do.

[img]https://www.mycommunity.com/uploads/5656_1_scan9ax.jpg[/img] It's just a bouquet of Glads, petunias, laitris and a hosta in the container. What did I know... ? Certainly a ready made "florist shop" is handy if your back holds up. The greenhouse was the first of three I had.. now down to one again.

Still can't get the diamonds. The only thing left is the gardener. No, No, No... he's not available anymore just too busy writing these silly stories and enjoying his garden again.... and making new friends. Thanks all. ...

Old Greenhouse and some Spring assortment.

Not a huge piece of ground .... This was a home made potting shed with a variety of lilies, begonias and Geraniums .. I keep changing the design.

[img]https://www.mycommunity.com/uploads/17039_4_OldGreenHouse.jpg[/img] Not as great as I would like it to be ...but this was 40 years ago.

Jersy weather getting warmer now. Tullip coming up... daffodils.. etc. .

Dom,

Thanks, I do enjoy bonsai & I periodically update that thread so do visit.

LOL, I posted the warning - Just for fun 8).

One thing though: [ & It's a common error.] [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_thousand_years]'Bonzai'[/url] is loosely translated as 10,000 years and was traditionally yelled to in reference long life for the Emperor as warriors engaged in an attack that they would not be returning from [IE: Kamikaze pilots].

Artistically designed trees in pots are Bonsai.

Added source of Bonsai info

Thanks for the info.. I have been reluctant to post sources of infomation when I was cautioned to "not post Webs". Perhaps these may be of help. I originally received some info from this guy... perhaps you know him? Jerry Muslik.
[img]https://www.bonsaihunk.us/jerry1b.jpg[/img] ..


His Web shared these with me. American Bonsai Society, reliable I found. [url=https://www.absbonsai.org]JUST CLICK RIGHT HERE FOR Flow of photos[/url] A safe source.

In addition, the Society provided these to "educate" Bonsai enthusiasts.
[url=https://www.absbonsai.org/links.html]JUST CLICK RIGHT HERE for added inforrmation[/url]

In the meantime ... here is this 85 year old poster... no warning necessary. [img]https://www.mycommunity.com/uploads/thumbnails/14260_1_Dom.jpg[/img] (old photo)

It's the best I can do... stay well... Dom

I understand completely, I have taken care to not list retailers [IE: Places where the primary income is from bonsai trees] in the 'Inspirational' thread. It consists of the galleries of artists, Bonsai Clubs/Associations/Societies {and their members} and enthusiasts from around the world. At times I simply post links due to copyright issues wrt the photos.
I originally received some info from this guy... perhaps you know him? Jerry Muslik.
Absolutely, His website is a wonderful resource for ficus information. Jerry LITERALLY wrote the book on ficus.:D

Both of the links you provided are excellent resources. 8)

Well, I don't know any other way except to list each pictures url, so here they are. These actually are older pictures; I have some newer ones, I just have to find them. (A couple of the pics are newer, last season). I'll post more later this season.

If you surround each of the url addresses with Image the pictures will show in your post 8).

Like below, But with no space between the brackets and each end of the address:

[img]https://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa96/mygardenphotos/007_6.jpg[/img]

You can also do this by highlighting the url address and clicking the 'IMG' button in the upper right side above the text box while posting.

Exhibit A. 8)

[img]https://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa96/mygardenphotos/DSCN0493.jpg[/img]

You might also want to preview the pics if you do this to insure the picture fits without scrolling...:P ;)

Hope that helps you out :)

Good explanation ynot... all technical info helpful to visitors here. In the meantime... for those real beginners (the kids) this is my Holiday Fun Link for today... use of url with hightlighted words to be clicked on.

[url=https://www.anthology-email.net/garden.htm]JUST CLICK RIGHT HERE and plant a simple garden[/url] I hope our Web Masters don't mind. It checked out when tested but, the cyber world has technical problems too. Just give it a try another time. In meantime I'm going to start that backyard barbecue now.

Thank you so much for that Dom :D.

There are literally hundreds of bonsai pictured.[img]https://www.mysmilie.de/english/green/smilies/cheeky/img/017.gif[/img]


Check out the possibilities of bonsai, There's a lot more to it than you may think [Like a planting that is 6 meters long IE. [img]https://www.mysmilie.de/english/green/smilies/characters/011.gif[/img]] .

Lol... so true. :lol:

But, I tell you it's so cool to see how the young kids respond to flowers on the sidewalk. I used to allow my young clients (I worked with children) to plant plants (or sow seeds) in the shape of their initials on the sidewalk and they had a blast being a part of the experience.

Oh dear, one year I even ended up putting huge sunflowers out there lol... Not exactly your typical sidewalk of smoothly mowed grass lol, but I think both adults and children enjoyed that little adventure.

Loved the post with the bonzai, ynot... Amazing!... thanks for sharing that

I love taking photos of the flowers, perhaps I grow them just so I can take tonnes of pictures *smile*... I'll be posting pictures of my garden as the season progresses Here-- [url=https://z6.invisionfree.com/UniKyu/index.php?showtopic=513&view=getnewpost]Flowers from Aria's garden[/url]

Yep, Your welcome! I am glad you enjoyed it.

Amazing indeed!

Just FYI though :D

I think you might have meant 'Bonsai' instead of 'Bonzai':

It might have been a typo but you may have also meant 'Banzai'

They are commonly confused but there is a substantial difference in meaning:

[url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banzai]Banzai[/url]: Pronounced 'Bon-Sigh': Which has connotations relating to war, [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_thousand_years]Among others.[/url]

As opposed to [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonsai]Bonsai[/url], Which is properly pronounced Bone-Sigh: Which is what you were enjoying :P :).

Just so you know :D

Check that thread often by the way as I update it often 8).

I have an EasyShare too and I lost the cord to transfer pics so I ended up buying a thing called a MobileMate SD+ by Scandisk at Best Buy. You pop the memory card out of the camera and put it in this and then plug it into your USB port and take the pics off of the card. The only draw back is I haven't figured out how to get the few pics that are on the camera's internal memory. Just happens to be pics of a nest of Bald Eagles in Hill country in Texas. I don't want to lose them!

Wow! :shock: I think you should be very proud of your efforts lilgardnr. You seem to have done an incredible amount in one year. I love the cartwheels you have used.

WOW!... GREAT PHOTOS... and lots of ideas that can be "borrowed". ...
Photos are a great help. Here is sample of what can be done if you have a large or small greenhouse with "hot beds" cold frames on the outside. Its size can be modified to what space you have available.

I love reading what you all have to say, and I REALLY love the pictures! I wish I had more blooming right now. So many things are right on the verge of bursting open. I have some pics of last year's garden, but this year's is much more promising :D I'll check around this weekend and see if I have anything worthy of a picture. Thanks again for all your posts.

I love seeing the elaborate greenhouses. My sweet husband built a wonderful one for me several years ago, but unfortunately it was a "casualty" in our home remodeling project. It was 16 feet long, 6 feet high and about 5 feet deep. I spent so much time out there. Living in California, we didn't need anything real scientific, just a simple wood frame covered in visqueen and a misting system. We didn't use any heating pads or anything, and I was able to start our entire vegetable garden in there from seed for several years. I developed a new passion for propagating new plants and had great fun. Got the kids involved too and made some wonderful memories.
God Bless!
