Another correction made


This time it was here.
I linked the wrong photo for the Wenlock English rose post.
I usually double check myself, but a mistake slipped by me anyway.
The previous photo was of a Rose de Rescht , an autumn damask I purchased last year from
Richters Herb Specialist.

Maiden Deep Lavender

Going through Garden Image checking links I noticed that I wrote the wrong genus for Maiden Deep Lavender. So if you googled that name for a dahlia, you came up blank. Maiden Deep Lavender is a Pelargonium Domesticum, common name Regal Geranium and Martha Washington.

Mine is still blooming. Just need to keep it away from direct sunlight.

Nature Album

When I loaded the Jalbum with photos, I thought I would be able to place it directly on my site but you need to sign on as a paying member for that and I nearly did. Then I found WP Photo Album. This plug in comes with clear instructions. You just need to create a page for it then a link.

Visitors of the Garden Journal will now see a link to the Photo Album in the navigation bar. This takes you to the Albums page. Then you choose which album you want to visit. All without leaving the site. Makes a lot more sense.

Sheryl Gallant art site

After reading a comment Sheryl made on one of my post on GardenWeb, I visited her Nature Photography site. I liked her photos very much. I especially liked the Red Grass.

Garden Art Competition

Just entered one photo in the Horticulture - Garden Competition. I read this magazine year round and visit their website on a regular basis. I also follow them on Twitter Having one of my garden photos appear in this magazine would make this gardener deliriously happy. Wish me luck!

Deadline December 1st

Hot-Color, Heat-Resistant Garden Plan

One way to survive winter while my garden is buried in a few feet of snow is to look at garden plans for ideas. This way I have plenty of time to find and start seeds indoors. I like the bold colours of this plan.
