I've been waiting for a nice sunny day to take a picture of this, from our bulb guru up North.

Why is that a mini version ?

When I posted the woodpecker picture (Wildlife 2007), that came out full size!

Let's try something,

I think Maggi stated that the idea was to keep it in the thumbnail version so that it would be easier to load.
I see no problem in clicking to make them bigger.

Kind regards

Hi Mark

all the details for how to post big pictures have been given on the forum (admitedly split between various threads).  It has also been made clear by the moderators that it would be prefered to avoid posting large size pictures unless there is a particular reason.

Thumnails have the benefit of loading easily for people who are not yet on broadband and also have the added bonus of showing how many times the image has been 'enlarged'.

(If you want the info on posting big pics send me an email).

cheers

John

Andrew,

Both photographs are fine. The thumb enlarges fine with a click.

Excellent narcissus.

Yesterday, I was reading about a scientist who measured and recorded the growth rate of his fingernails for 30 years. That doesn't seem to me to be a very exciting thing to expend patience on. I am now able to tell you that by experimentation, I have determined that the rate of growth of a plant is inversely proportional to how much you want to find out what it is like, especially when flowering for the first time. When observed closely twice a day (at least) the incremental growth IS NOT PERCEPTIBLE AT ALL! So I invite you all to join me in waiting for this new hybrid to flower. It is a cross between  Narcissus hedreanthus and asturiensis, so I'm hoping it will be cute and small. Will it have the best bits of both parents, or the worst? Watch this space...

You are absolutely right Anne and I can tell you that if you go away from home for just two days it will have opened fully, flowered and died away again, before you get home!

I've seen a few seedlings from the same cross (not mine) here in NZ and they were very good, very small and neat, lovely shapes and colours.

I think Maggi stated that the idea was to keep it in the thumbnail version so that it would be easier to load.
I see no problem in clicking to make them bigger.

I know when downloading, sometimes you get the full size picture and it is sized to fit the 'hole'. As a test I looked at the picture sizes on this post (Sorry Anne but yours is the only other picture post and is does show my point very well :)).

My thumbnail 33k
My fullsize 45k
Anne's thumbnail 55k

So as you can see the same picture has a little difference in size, something that I would not be bothered about and some thumbnails can even be larger.

Thumnails have the benefit of loading easily for people who are not yet on broadband

As someone who is still on a modem I have one thread downloading in the background while reading another, as gardeners what is a few minutes when we wait years for seeds ?

and also have the added bonus of showing how many times the image has been 'enlarged'.

I think I prefer how many people did not what to see the large image.

Of course everyone is entitled to there own opinion.

Thank you

here are a couple of Narcissus bulbodium from Brian Duncan the N Irish daff breeder
The first one he found in Morrocco but I dont know if it different from the norm. The second one is paler but no name and the last is the two side by side. My camera doesnt do the colours very well and shows them paler
