RE: How to post pictures from Flickr (Follow-Up #1)

posted by: foxesearth on 05.28.2009 at 12:47 pm in Cottage Garden Forum

I couldn't find an easy copy/paste feature on Flickr.

You can post your Flickr photos by doing this:

  • click on the picture you want to post here so that it appears in a separate window, not in the album with the others, so you get the full size pic.

  • Right click on the full sized picture, left click on "properties" and copy the URL of the pic.

  • Return to the message box here. Type: < img src= (type this with a space only between img and src, I have to use spaces so that the string shows up here).

  • Paste the URL following the = with no space between.

  • Close the string with a > with no space between.

    What you typed should look something like this:
    < img src=http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3406/3344191781_e4c9b2842e.jpg?v=0 >
    except that you should have no spaces after and before the < and >

    When you preview, you should see your picture. If you don't see it, then go back and check carefully that you have a space only between img and src and that everything is correct. < img (no space between them) will be on a separate line to the rest of what you typed.

    Leslie..."Alfalfa Tea" is something we make up to feed our Roses, Daylilys, etc...You take a 5 Gallon Bucket and put in either 4 cups of Alfalfa Pellets or fill 1/3 full with Alfalfa Pellets ( I buy mine from the Feed Store in 50 lb. bags for about 10 bucks...it is used to feed cattle etc..you can just go in and ask for it and the salesperson will know what you mean) then fill the bucket with water...stir daily and in about 5-7 days it will start to stink..then add four cups of Epsom Salts..stir well ...then I put about 2 cups around each of my Roses and water in ... Alfalfa contains a growth hormone called Triacontanol which is a naturally occurring plant hormone that acts as a growth promoter. Triacontanol raises plant yield by improving photosynthesis and cell division..Your Roses will benefit by new basal breaks..it's awesome..It really is plants on steroids!!...Jeanne

    RE: First Garden Junk post- headboard bench :) (Follow-Up #21)

    posted by: spy_ri on 05.03.2006 at 06:57 pm in Garden Junk Forum

    rainsend, yours was the post that got me moving! I'd seen so many incredible projects on here, but when I saw your bench, it knocked me out, and the next day I found the headboard (already stripped and sanded) at a YS for $5!!! I love yours and wish they'd had the footboard too because I love the way you made the arms and sides. When I showed my DH your post, he was so into it and loved the color, so I tried to find a similar shade- I love that deep hyacinth blue!
    I've been trying to make something that explains how I made mine, but I basically cribbed from rainsend!

    My Red Bed - Second Year ( *9 photos*)

    posted by: gottagarden on 11.01.2006 at 08:01 pm in Cottage Garden Forum

    Last year I posted photos of my brand new red bed. I thought you might be interested in an update to see how it is doing in year 2. I have planted several large shrubs and a couple of small trees, but they are still too small to show up yet. One problem with this bed is its lack of height. But I'm working on it!

    Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
    Here is the overall scene - it's 50 feet long. Unfortunately, when I reduce the resolution for fast uploads it really destroys image quality. It looks much better in real life.

    This year I thought I would try something new - red castor beans. They were wonderful and next year I will do a lot more. The seeds are highly toxic, and my kids have gotten several lectures on them. They are finally old enough to know better, but I still watch them.

    Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
    This photo is from early July, but the garden really gets going late in the season. I will be adding more for early season interest next year.

    Here we are in August, things are filling out nicely.

    gazebo, broken concrete, tipsy pots, bottle tree, etc...

    posted by: cheribelle on 07.06.2006 at 04:19 pm in Garden Junk Forum

    Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

    This gazebo was built by me with some help from DH. The top is a 10 ft fiberglass satelite dish. I bought the 4X4 posts that hold it up. The rest was a porch my friend had taken off her house when she remodeled. Funny story. The carpenters she had hired to build her new wrap-around porch took the old one off and loaded it on my trailer for me. When I hauled it off they looked at me like I'm nuts. Then later, they came into the resteraunt where I was working. They recognised me and asked "What are you going to do with that old porch?" I said I'm going to build a gazebo. Professional carpenter says to me " A gazebo, huh? Those are cool, but really tricky." I said Nah, I have a plan. The look on his face was priceless, a waitress telling a professional carpenter she can build a gazebo??? To funny. heeheehee
    He has NO clue I have been using power tools and remodeling things for 25 years :0)
    The copper trellis on the front is one of my designs, one of many I have built. You can sort of see the bottle tree in the back, and the horse planter I just put in.
    We are still working on the broken concrete patio, lots of old stuff on this old farm place to work with, just takes time and WORK.

    April in the garden

    posted by: eduarda on 04.29.2007 at 05:51 pm in Cottage Garden Forum

    I finally got a bit of time to post a few pics of the garden this past month of April. We have had a reasonably cool Spring up to now and this has been doing wonders for the garden.

    After 6 years gardening in this tiny lot and starting with a blank canvas, we can no longer see the boundaries of the garden distinctively - something all gardening design books say it's a trick to force our eyes into thinking the garden is actually bigger than it is :-)

    Thank you Steven for starting this thread. Blues have been some of my very favorite flowers for many years now.

    All this thread is doing is reminding me of my distinct LACK of blues in my garden. At least the TRUE blues anyway. I've got plenty of Catmint and Salvia.
    I'm trying Delphiniums AGAIN, and will also be attempting Lakspur, so hopefully something will work for me this year.

    That's what I'm talkin' about! What a glorious sight!

    Libby - that poppy is one of the most beautiful things I've seen in a while.

    Morning Glory and delphs carry some of the most intense and beautiful blues to be had, as is evidenced by Gottagarden and Ed's lovely pix. Edna, I had Royal Ensign in my garden last year. Got it at Annie's. No sign of a return yet, but I'm holding out hope.

    Salvia, what would we do without ya. I love them and they love my zone. I keep putting them everywhere I can find a place for them. And of course lobelia, so pretty I wanna steal ya.

    Here's a couple of more from my garden past and present:

    I've been making my patio bed a combination of true blues, yellows and white.

    Here are my delphiniums, Magic Fountain mix, that has 3 shades of true blue - very light blue, medium blue, and deep dark blue. There are also lots of purples, but these 3 are true blue. Look in the bottom right of the photo and you will see salvia guaranitica "black and blue" which is a lovely shade of blue.

    Another true blue is flax (linum). Here it is with my tree peony.
