Thanks Clarasue, I forgot to look last night but has saved me a job. I'll edit my photo now, just saw it was a bit bigger than I expected...

TW- I just re entered the URL to the correct size but I'm still seeing it big. No idea what's happened besides the images have been showing big in the previews since Photobucket upgraded but shrink when entered. Until today.

Your photo looks fine to me satguru, and did earlier on as well (before your edit). Have you tried the "Control/Refresh" trick? Almost always works for me.

This photo would have fit last week's theme, but I only received this mug today. I was doing a bit of shopping (under $5.00's worth) in the Giant Tiger store downtown, and noticed these mugs at the checkout. Asked if they were for sale, and was told they were, for .99 cents, or free to every 50th customer. Then the clerk smiled and said, "I think you must be my fiftieth customer" It was rather sweet, and gave me a lift, as well as a new mug for my collection.

It does look OK. As said, 'Refresh' or 'Control+Refresh' should show the photo the correct size after an edit.

Will do in future, I didn't edit it originally, and it was the first time it had happened so I was lost. I edited it after just to make sure I'd put in the reduced version.
Glad it's working anyway.

Here's a typical English cottage garden in Golders Green.

Here's Katt, wondering whether or not the grass really is greener on the other side of the fence.

I always love looking at pictures of Katt, he is so cute! (Winston is too, of course!)

It almost looks as if there might be a bird perched up on that fence judging by the intense look. Is Katt wondering if the grass is really greener after a tasty snack?

Looks like spring is springing all over the northern hemisphere! Love the garden and Katt photos.

Yesterday there was a spring concert and art show at my daughters' school. All of the classes have been studying different artists, one of which was Andy Warhol. This is a whole wall reminiscent of his famous Marilyn Monroe art, with the four different images of her. These are the 1st graders'. I loved all the different colors.

First duckling I've seen this year..and only the one. I wonder why it has no brothers or sisters? It looks as if its growth is being measured:

I've been away sailing this week. Don't know if the pink shirts of Lancelot's crew have any significance, but they look pretty good as they pass close ahead of us



There's a larger image here

The last view of St Andrew's Road was so popular here's another. It's in the little known area of Temple Fortune which recently gained the right to be put on all the maps rather than the rare few. It was named after the farm in the middle, itself thought to be from the Knights Templars but lost in time.



We do have one international member who does know this area very well. It's always nice when you're talking to someone across the ocean and they know about where you live.

This fisherman is hard to see, but he's standing in the same stretch of the river where the kayakers were having fun only a few weeks ago!

I've just been to an art exhibition at my old school in Golders Green, this is the main building.

Your river looks significantly lower now, Liz.

Here's a young desert cottontail that I saw yesterday...



...And here's what happened when he saw me!

I've been helping a friend to erect a large shed today, so no photos. Here's another image from my sailing trip earlier this week; the crew of racing yacht 'No Drama' in action and passing very close ahead of us, but everything under control and 'no drama'

djsgal, I just love the children's artwork.

Nothing special going onthis week. This is just a flowering bush from a roadside rest area in Florida taken last week.

Love the two photos of the cottontail, and really enjoy the sailing pictures.

The river is definitely down a good deal. I wouldn't have been able to take this photo a few weeks ago, as the walkway where I'm standing was under water!

Another boat scene, but entirely different, an all girl rowing crew on our local canal. The canal is scenic and has long straight stretches of water, so team rowing is quite popular.

This is Wolferton Station which was mainly used by the Royal Family for their stays at Sandringham House. After closure, it became a museum and is now a private residence. Here is an image of the original signal box.

It seems like the UK has lots of neat canals, like the one that TW posted when we were doing the "What's the Difference" game, and satguru's and picqero's...I really like them.

Here are some blooms from Friday.

Love the photos of the old station! Like the pretty blooms, too

I have seen several blue jays in the last couple of weeks, but not until today did one of them sit still long enough for me to take a photo. This one is feeding at my sister's neighbours' bird feeder.

We were in Bossier City, Louisiana this weekend and this wall mural is located on Traffic Street between the Horseshoe Casino and the Boardwalk shopping. The artist, Buddy West, I understand, has painted quite a few murals in town. I will post another one tomorrow. This is an alligator that probably measured about 20 feet down the wall.

Glad he's not the real thing, ClaraSue!

This was my box of organic produce this past Saturday - beets, carrots, radishes, tomatoes, spring onions, cherries, nectarines, peaches, apricots...yum, yum!
