After a rain shower on another unusually warm and sunny day, while waiting for a call back from Peacock Computers, I wandered around the garden;
produced another batch of photographs including fuchsias, dahlias, begonias, clematis Margaret Hunt, Ginger Lily seedpods. petunias, cosmos, Morning Glory, and the ubiquitous self-seeded bidens surviving from summer 2020; then girded my loins in order to set about the struggle to upload them into WordPress media.
This time only one failed to upload because of an error, but two were relocated from the desktop as incompatible with the new operating system. I was able to put those back where they belonged.
Max from Peacock Computers has arranged a home visit on Thursday.
Buoyed by my earlier success Jackie drove me to Barton on Sea to watch the sunset.
The ten photos I loaded when we arrived home were accepted by WP without a glitch.
Later, we dined on a refreshed reprise of yesterday’s roast dinner, each with our preferred beverage.
Another beautiful set of photos, Derrick! I’m glad someone is coming to your home to help with your computer issues.
Thank you very much. John
The photograph of the fuchsias in the top row is outstanding – and I love the coverage of the dramatic sunset!
Thank you very much, Anne. Until I found the gulls in flight that fuchsia shot was my header picture
Your garden is so very floriferous. ?A glorious sunset gallery, Derrick.
Thanks very much, Sylvia. I hope the op goes well
Thanks, Derrick. It did go well and I’m out of hospital already.
Your flowers are indeed very lovely. A particular gift at this time of the year.
The sky and gulls in your header and final photos are stunning. So glad you could upload without too much trouble today – and looking forward to hearing what the dreaded issue is later in the week.
I wonder what those gulls are thinking as they glide so gracefully over us and this earth.
Thank you very much for all this, Emma. I often wonder about those thoughts – and those of all the animals
Love them. Beautiful flowers.
Thank you very much, Eunice
I never get tired of seeing sunsets, and sunrises!
Thanks very much, Barbara
I just saw your other post with the sunrise pictures – we think alike!
I’m you were able to load the gulls at sunset photos. They’re absolutely stunning.
Thanks a lot, Liz
You’re welcome, Derrick.
I loves the gulls at sunset–such stunning photos, but as usual your garden is full of delights.
Our luck continues, Merril. At 7 a.m. I am sitting with no heating on. Thanks very much.
Oh nice! Eight AM here, and it’s pouring since last night (beginning with thunderstorms).
Thanks a lot, Flower
Sunsets and close-ups of gorgeous blooms – you’re spoiling us Derrick.
🙂 I’m happy to do so, Sheree. Thanks very much.
I’ve never mastered the photograph display in the current version of WP. One of the reasons I am not blogging as much lately.
What a pain. Thanks a lot, Gwen
“Girded my loins.” Lol! Thanks for your efforts, Derrick. The flowers look beautiful!
Much appreciated, Jill. Thanks to you, too
Oh heavenly floral delight
Thanks very much, Yvette
The garden and flowers are beautiful, Derrick and Jackie! And thank you, Jackie, for taking Derrick over to the shore to photograph that molten sunset. The photos are stunning!
Much appreciated by us both, Lavinia.
Glad there were no glitches. Glorious sunset.
Thanks a lot, Laurie
You’ve made my day Derrick … Fuchsias and Sunsets … !!
I’m pleased, Ivor. Cheers
Stunning sunsets and delightful blossoms. The Hawkshead fuchsias are my favorites.
Thank you very much, JoAnna. I like those, too. The bushes are so prolific that they have to be restrained with pruning.
Another beautiful sunset. ? I love your fuchsias. I have tried them a few times in our garden but mine always look sort of like dead plants.
WE are very lucky where we live which turns ours into hardy plants. Thanks very much, AnneMarie
Thanks a lot, Gary
Your garden must nourish you both so much….it always does me from far away.
That is very pleasing, and much appreciated, Cynthia
I’m sorry to admit, I’m jealous of your fuchsias.
Thanks very much, Chrissy
Today’s instalment of garden photos are special. The sundown has been captured exceptionally well too. It is sad to find you in a state of trepidation merely at the thought of loading a bunch of photos through WordPress. The bunch of morons at WP seem hell bent upon ruining the once wonderful portal.
Thank you for the understanding, Uma. You know I won’t give up easily.
Such beautiful photos! My favorite is the closeup of the Mrs. Popple fuchsia. But all the rest are beautiful too.
I have trouble uploading photos to WordPress too. Sometime I have to refresh the page after I put each photo up. I don’t have as many photos as you do, so it’s not a big problem.
Thanks very much, Nicki. I suppose we should be grateful that the uploading works at all.
I, too, loved the birds against the sunset.
Thanks very much, Judy
Still so much colours in your garden Derrick. Nice sunset shots.
We are very lucky with the garden, Rupali. Thanks very much.
Love the sunset scene plus the flowers of course. Oh, to be surrounded by those lovely blooms.
Thank you so much, Arlene
Gulls at sunset…perfection! 🙂 I’ve always enjoyed watching gulls!
And I think you know…fuchsias are a BIG smile-bringer to me!
Thanks a lot, Carolyn X
So beautiful, Derrick ? Hopefully the apparent improvement in wordpress media will continue ?
Thanks very much, Sandra. No problems today.
Doesn’t look like autumn or storms are hurting your garden!!
No – it continues happily, and welcomes the rain. Thanks a lot, GP
Beautiful sunset pictures!
Thanks very much, Alexander
I found two of our native Bidens species last weekend. In reading about them, I came across quite a few gardeners’ comments about that self-seeding. Some appreciated it, but some were annoyed. I hope your computer guru can reduce your annoyance level when it comes to the blog, photos, and so on.
Thanks very much, Linda. We appreciate most self seeders. We can always compost them if necessary. No problems with uploading today, but I’ll let him check it over anyway.
Beautiful photos all around.
Thank you very much, Mrs W
Wonderful captures of the sinking sun and beautiful close-up shots of the various flowers. I love the scene with the gulls – outstanding!
Thank you very much, Eugi
You’re welcome, Derrick.
The garden is still looking gorgeous and I am still envious.
The sunset over the ocean is stunning. Thank you to you both.
I’m glad peacocks are coming on Thursday. It would be interesting to find out why the computer would not recognise the images saved on the desktop.
Your sunset photos are exquisite. Like many days, you bookended a pretty garden and sunset with the headaches of WordPress. I’m happy to hear that you’ve called in reinforcement of a technical nature. My laptop stopped working for 24 hours last week and I was bereft. How quickly we’ve become at one with our technology.
Yes, we have, Alys. My problem is not knowing whether it is them or me. Thanks a lot.
Ah yes. I’m chuckling at that, Derrick.
“Gird your loins.” has always made me laugh. So glad today’s batch was easier. Beautiful photos! Your lighting has been incredible lately.
Thank you so much, Jodie
Your roses are fabulous, Derrick, as are the photos of sunset over the sea.
Thank you very much, Dolly
You are very welcome, Derrick.
These pictures are lovely, Derrick.
Thanks very much, Robbie
Thanks very much, Pat
gorgeous garden flowers as per usual, I guess by the time I get to the newest post, the computer tech guy will have been and fixed things (yep, behind again)
You are never too late, Catherine. Thanks very much
Beautiful sunset! And those colorful flowers in November are simple gorgeous!
