Hooray, finally my lovely freecycled greenhouse is complete!

Apologies for the rather shameless link to my blog page instead of a photo, but the photo is too big to upload.

It makes me happy just thinking about it :iconbiggrin:

Greenhouse is lovely but I can't read your blog cos the text is totally lost under all those beautiful flowers and doesn't show up enough on the pink page. :(

You can copy the photo over from your website though! :iconbiggrin:

Thanks MMM, I didn't think of that! Did you just cut and paste it?

I am not sure what you mean about the blog... I just had a look and it is black text on a white background, which has the flowers as a border? :scratch:

Maybe it is different because I am logged in - I will get some other people to have a look at it.

Thanks

I have the picture over the entire screen! Very nice too but sort of impossible to read any text. :lol: Viewing in IE.

In IE you right click on the photo then scroll down, click on properties then copy the URL then paste it here in the reply screen. Then highlight the URL (address) and press the Img button above (where all the bold, font size etc are) and that will put [img] tags at each end and make the photo come up (check in preview screen), otherwise it will just be a link.

I have no idea how you do this in firefox which I am also using but can't work that out as right clicking comes up with totally different things. :dontknow:

Bonnie I can view the blog OK in Firefox but still not in Internet Explorer (although I can highlight the text and read it on a blue background!).

But that flower bed is so pretty it does seem a shame to cover it all over with text, look at what other people are missing. :lol:

Thanks MMM, I checked with knowledgeable boyf and he said it might be something to do with the version of IE you may have? I dunno :dontknow:

Can't wait till said flowerbed is back to its summertime best. :flower:

I mean this in an entirely non-stalkerish way but I wish you and your gardening skills lived with me! The greenhouse is fantastic. (I can read your blog ok as well but I'm on Firefox).
