Yes, same problem here, the page starts to load and sticks half way.  No problems with other pages.

His web page isn't accessible either, so it's probaby a server issue, they had some heavy thunderstorms in Oslo yesterday.

I'm sorry. Yes there have been problems all weekend with the server where I have my web site and e-mail. Can't get into any of them myself either. I hope they will have it fixed when they are back to work tomorrow.

Edit: I noticed now that if you wait for a few minutes the pics will show.

Yes Lesley, I did see them.... or else I have a very active imagination?  Not sure I like that question mark on the end of the statement...... are you besmirching my good name??  :P ;)

And no, they don't appear for me now, even though they did the other day.  I still remember the lovely white Cornus with the black centre..... I so want to grow that.  ;D  But that goes for so many things I see in these forums.  ::)

No besmirching going on here Paul, just expressing sadness that I was unable to see them, as I still am. Magnar's pics are always so good that I don't want to miss them.

(Just as an aside Paul, are you possibly going down to Melbourne for the Harvey/Henderson talks in September?)

Coming through perfectly now Magnar, and well worth waiting for.
