Thanks Mark, that's how I want them to look when I upload them.  I have found the area in the programme as you describe, with one small problem, I don't know what sort of measurement you use to obtain the 600 or 700 you mention.  Once I know that, I should be ok.  Thanks again

I meant to mention that my mothers grey/purple/magenta carnation (dianthus) was called `The Monk'

A few from the garden today:

Watsonia angusta
Biarum tenuifolium
Biarum tenuifolium closeup
Cyclamen hederifolium 'Album' The cyclamen bed is coming to life again and this is my favourite cyclamen as it was the first I ever had, a gift from a gardening friend. I guess thisplant is about 30 years old.
Hydrangea macrophylla 'Lady in Red'
This is the hydrangea I had mentioned in a previous posting, one that I had seen in a garden I visited and was looking out for. Obviously I eventually found it and must get to planting it out now.

Very nice Paddy. Truly a venerable cyclamen. And how tall is the gorgeous watsonia? I love the biarum as well. I had it once but never had flowers over 10 years or so. I think I must have thrown it out as I can't see it around now. Shouldn't have done that.

OK Mark, I've taken a look and hope this gives the picture that will enlarge but not too big this time.  I couldn't quite locate the pixel size thing on my programme so this is just a trial.

Still way too big.  It must be something I'm doing but I really don't know what. 
When I initially import pics into my computer they are six megapixel files so I have to resize them to get them to upload onto the site, and I have managed to make smaller files from them so they will upload, but they still come very big when I click on them on the site.  I need help or I cannot put pictures up. The one I put up now was well within the limit for file size, yet it still came out so big when I clicked on it.

Lesley, just for you - I went out with a measuring tape and can tell you that the watsonia is 4 feet 10 and a half inches. I grew it from seed obtained from Silverhill Seeds. It hasn't really bulked up very well but does send up a few flowering spikes each year. The biarum is there about three years and has 4 flowers this year.

Luc, the cyclamen has never had anything at all by way of feed. Though some cow manure might be a good suggestion to keep it going into its old age.

Chris has now spoken to me about editing images so hopefully the new ones from her should be spot on.

Daphne pet. 'Garnet's flowers are now looking up.

Can someone ID this shrubby 'climbing' Felicia. I know of the pink one that 'climbs' but not the blue one

This is my favourite Centaurea C. ruprestis. Not difficult when I only grow two different ones

Mark, you have exactly the same felicia as I do.  And I bought it with a label that said 'Climbing aster'.  It grows like crazy and has been in bloom since the end of April, and is still blooming.  Cracking good plant.  I've looked in the Elsa Pooley book which has several sprawling felicias, but it is hard to pinpoint its name from that even, and her descriptions are really good.  So I (and Sue Gill who also has it) will be very grateful if we can get a positive identification.
