When I first clicked on here , I knew it was a Dave Oy photo, shear picture quality with extreme detail. It's like your there amongst the woodland.

A great picture, especially for those not able to get out and about

Is anyone else having problems with the layout of this page? I have adverts appearing in between different people's comments and a blank page appears between Alan and Maureen's comments.

Pat,yes it’s the same for everyone,annoying I know but we’ll just have to go with the flow I suppose.

A nice photo Dave, and how I like the dells of rain-soaked woods. I must admit, though, the photo has begun to have a very strange effect on me. I'm imagining things. For example, when the top of the shaley mound has been brought to the top of the monitor, I'm transported to the depths of treasured waters just off the coast of New Zealand, searching for abalone. The only problem with this particular fantasy is that other readers might become too-attached to the dream, thus forgetting the gorgeous icy blue of your Glead Wood water. Thanks.

Thank you for your reply Maureen, I thought it was a problem with my iPad.

A beautiful and vibrant photograph Dave - so many different shades of green. Thank you.

Lovely photo in these depressing times,thank you.But can some one tell me what the plant in the front of the photo is.Its in my garden and I wondered should I get rid of it?

Phil if your feeling your being transported to the depths of treasured waters just off the coast of New Zealand, searching for abalone. by looking at this photo, maybe you should book a doctors appointment

Comment by: Philip Gormley. on 6th July 2020 at 07:13

Thanks for your kindly thought, Mick - I'll make the appointment as soon as I've cleared the shed. Come to think of it, I might then unearth the conch that mother brought back from Southport all those years ago and deemed pilfered from the rockery by rapscallions; three hoots on that at the doctor's door wouldn't half have the girl back-pedalling.

Edna - I don't think the plant here is actually it - but it is very similar to ground elder, which is a real nuisance once it gets in your garden. It spreads rapidly underground, and you just have to keep digging it up, following the roots if possible.
Good pic, Dave.

Comment by: Edna on 6th July 2020 at 22:34

Thank you for that David.I thought as much it's popped up here and there about 3 times now.I suppose I will have to get the space out now!!
