  3. Hi Jack lovely photos, thanks for visiting my blog you can follow by email or copy the url and add it to your blogger reading list.

  4. I like your photo of Splish Splash. It has turned out to be a reseeded in my garden and now the clumps are getting bigger every year. They don't have the variegated flowers though, just blue.

  5. You asked a question on my blog, in case you don't see it here is the answer-

    My site has google friend connect, you just click on it and it will let you follow my blog. I just followed your blog with google friend connect. If you want a reading list on the side margin that has links to other blogs, you click on blogger, or go to and log in, then open layout on the left menu, if you don't have a gadget to display a reading list- My Blog List, you may have to add it, I have forgotten what I did so you might need to google how to do that. After you have the gadget, you just click on 'edit' and it will give you a window where you click on 'add' and paste in the address of the blog you want to add, then save it and it will appear on your blog as a link and also updates the last post, pretty cool.

  6. Especially love that poppy - mine forgot to show up! - and the rain drops on the rock. Gin
