Garden Slideshow




I am just trying out this slideshow of last years garden photos to see if I can get it to work. I will only leave this on for a day as it might slow down my blog too much. I will work on how to put on a bigger one next time and use this sesason's photos so this is just a little experiment.

Hi Carolyn, Your slide would not load on my computer. My computer maybe too old to run the show. Sorry I missed it:( Take care and have a wonderful week. Jen

Very beautiful gardens Carolyn, so much colour.
The distance photo with the purple down the sides, at first I thought it was lavender but think it might be nepeta?

Lovely slide show of 2009 Garden.
I still like your little cottage so much! I can see why others like her as well.

Actually Carolyn, your home, cottage and gardens are outstanding and a joy to visit even if it is by blogland.

I cherish your friendship and wish you well,

Morning Carolyn

Your slideshow is beautiful as is your garden. I have my slideshow on the side of my blog, mine was compiled in Picnik, although I have used Picasa before.

Looking forward to seeing your photographs for this years garden. Better than going to Chelsea Flower Show!!

Best wishes, Jackie in UK.

Carolyn you live in Paradise! I can only imagine what it would be like to walk in your garden with my camera or just sit there with my tea. The slide-show is beautiful and didn't slow the opening of your blog for me. I also hold down Ctrl while scrolling my mouse to enlarge the page, and the photos are even more beautiful.

Carolyn,

I enjoyed your slide show even if it was an experiment. I would love to see more of your potted plants and the kinds of plant material that you mix. I am always looking for new ideas in that regard. I happen to notice some in your slide show. I know they must change from year to year.

On a different note, I have some of the geraniums that you have shown pics of and right now they are looking so stressed. I keep them in pots but I guess that it is our heat and humidity. You must have near perfect gardening conditions on the Island. As always you are such an inspiration as a gardener.

Cabin and Cottage said...

Spectacular Carolyn! After the first run through of the slide show I pushed the play button and I was moved to a different site that played the show again full size! Breathtaking! But then I couldn't get it to do that again. Just kept the smaller views. The growth is fantastically beautiful, but the garden features and buildings are so wonderful. Magazines, of course, but it wouldn't surprise me to see your place be solicited for a movie!Jacqueline

Susimac said...

Just incredibly stunning - will you come and do my garden please?

Dear Carolyn,

I enjoyed the slight show very much, but it did cost me some time to open your blog indeed, but that can also be because my computer is very slow ;-)!

Happy day!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Gorgeous! I have the slowest speed of DSL through my phone line and the slideshow loaded up immediately.
