Our new garden


We moved to the latest home in December and the garden was like a very bad jungle with large mounds of rubbish hidden and the overgrowth of plants hid a lot of paths and patios and what turned out to be a sort of secret garden as we began work. We cleared the right hand side (looking out towards it from the conservatory) of very overgrown choisya that had grown horizontally along the ground in front of us and chopped down several trees that almost obscured the greenhouse. We have made a start on clearing the large patch of ground elder, ivy and brambles. I tried adding pictures before but may have more luck this time.
No they are just not downloading, I don’t think they are small enough but don’t know how to change that without cropping.

Wow, you are going to have your work cut out - what are you going to do in your spare time, lol?
If you download your photos onto your computer most editing software will give you an option for reducing the number of pixels.

Wow sounds a big job, have you tried taking photos with your mobile phone then you can upload straight from there, you may have to turn it to its side so they are up the right way when uploading, this is what I do then just look at the photo on your larger device to check you are happy with it, you can always delete it if not ( this is of course if you have a smartphone) hope this makes sense, Jane :-))
