That's about it folks.

I hope the pictures are OK - I deliberately left my tripod at home so I would focus more on enjoying the day and the garden, and less on taking perfect photos.

The show season is now upon us, so expect some more pictures after the Caerleon Show on Saturday.

Smashing selection of images Jon, thoroughly enjoyed them.

Thank you very much for the Wisley tour Jon with some beautiful images to remind us all that Spring is on the way. I wish someone would tell my garden that! Still on the one coum and a few snowdrops!

Colin, I know just how you feel... at the same stage of growth here!

Jon, many thanks for this delightful Wisley tour and your always super photographs .... armchair garden visiting at its best for us!

A fantastic tour of the garden in February Jon.

By the way - I hope I have fixed the aspect ratio problem with small images - let me know if you spot anything else.

Thanks Jim, that's great.

I get the impression you might have changed something else about the submission code as well; it doesn't seem to generate an automatic new submission banner so frequently (or at least my contributions aren't broken up into as many separate submissions as they were).

The only other wish that I have relates to the habit I have got into of having one paragraph of text followed by three or four photos, since three or four thumbnails will all fit on the same row. It is frustrating when I do this, and then a new page is triggered between two of the photos because of the picture count limit. If the new page code only triggered when the contribution contained text as well as a photo, that would allow better formatting, rather than ending up with the text (and plant name) on one page and the photo on the following page.
