    Have removed my "portrait" as I feel it has been there long enough.

    Great Photos..I love all of them Especially the 1st one showing how HARD it was to plow the mother earth. I must now find the scans of my grand parents pictures on their 35.000ha!!!!!!! farm in Zimbabwe before 1900 ...Dear file name "old fart" haha so funny ...Ok so you don't want to show off but would you tell me the name of the long stem leafy plant in front of you. I made 4 terracotta pots on the permeter with my neigbour (her pots) actually some oval pipe like thing.. She is NOT an avid gardener and seening the stuff lying around I just chatted her up and said . Let me arrange them along our garden line and make them look pretty with plants cutting from both sides.. She had these same leaves growing under a Rodo cramped together so I took some out and planted them (but now in full sun) The rodo was FULL SOUTH and they sureley were exposed to sun also..
    They have white bells like flowers ( gone by now) I want to add something a friend taught me yesterday about BLEEDING HEART flowers
    It creates 2 Bunnies 2 bathroom slippers a pair of earrings and a sun umbrella. DID YOU KNOW THAT ? All this in each of the flowers..:-) So cute and totally GARDENISH :-) and cute for your grand children.

    A mandevilla flower bloomed today, a picture of my hydroponic system - can't wait till there's peppers growing in it, and finally there's my melons getting use to their spot in the sun (Thanks Hollyberry).

    That's cool Vic, I see the bunnies, but not really the slippers or umbrella...?

    Hiyas ShearMe,
    Must say that the Mandevilla pics were a huge surprise when I logged in tonight. Thank you very much, I bought two of them approximately 3 and a half feet tall from a local nursery two years ago almost to the day, the first for myself, and the second for the owner of my workplace on her birthday, at least 10 to 12 flowers on the go (I kept the the best one for myself and it was even more prolific.) Long story, short she almost was in tears (after half a bottle of Ballantine's scotch whiskey I am sure:), and an excellent dinner I prepared for her 60th (Coquille St. Jacques, Dungeness crab & Nova Scotia lobster salad, other classics.) Her husband was actually pissed off because she announced in front of nine employees that it was the best present she received. I guess the three grand diamond earrings didn't match a Mandevilla bloom. I was told at the at the nursery it would only last the season, I have no greenhouse or similar environment to save over winter, if that would even work? Cheers and thank you for pics!

    Hi Vic,
    ooops yes I will compose the lasagna recipe for you and send. The guys with Crabs is my buddy Remy (Remy Martin I call him) from Quebec, works in Fort St. John on the pipelines with my stepson, is a stand-up character. When he arrived here he had never seen the Ocean ever. Was an incredible feeling showing him around (we rode scooters, I own a couple), he said "I never want to leave!" I actually showed my co-workers your landscaping pictures from Africa South and they were amazed. By the way the Maitre'D at my work for the summer is a South-African, His name is Hilton Cranston-Whittaker the Third. I will post pictures later! Y'all rule and I look forward to coming home from work everyday and checking this thread of excellent 'Greenthumbed' people. Now we just need to add music :) :) :)

    I think we should try maybe to start another type of thread. To keep this one to the point. The Hollyberry Lady seem to try to keep this thread to the point of keeping it short on what thread participants look like. I look forward seeing your pics maybe in another Thread that I will start now I'll call it "Favorite green things, thoughts, places,pets and self-portraits." ( so we can put flower pics, our portraits or posing in the gardens or elsewhere the pets etc) Simply giving this new thread the human opportunity to take it surely to interesting and somehow gardening oriented unknown forum paths. Our CATS are very good gardeners also!!

    I have decided that I was wrong! Yes, you read correctly - WRONG!

    : O

    This thread has gone completely dead since my last posting (now removed), which got me thinking...was it something I said? Why yes, yes it was!!!

    This thread is going to be for whatever people want it to be for, in the future, and just forget I said any of the previous things about no conversation here. Have all the conversation you want.

    The point of this thread, was to make things a little more friendly, warm, and inviting on UBC - so I had no right to cut off all the great conversation that was taking place here. Please forgive me. I didn't mean to sound like the warden! Lol.

    Other garden forums that have personal picture threads, are full of chat and conversation, and tons of pics not just of themselves - their families, pets, comments, everything.

    Feel free to call me an arse, and send me some dead seeds! LoL. Vicarious1 got it worst of all, in private messages, about all the chatter! I know I am forgiven though, right Vicarious1? Or am I? Hope someone breaks the ice soon...

    Alright, just to get a little off topic here myself, and show it's ok - the first shot is my purple cayenne, and the last two are my long red cayenne - although not red quite yet. Both grown from seed in my living room window.

    Now, I just need a piece of that lasagna...

    : )

    Lovely images!

    This reminds me of a thread started at Swish-Tutorials as it was called then now Swishtalk. It was such fun, We were all friends then the forums (my first ever Swish software forum) got sold and its never been the same since. All the friends have all but disapeared now that were in this thread.

    http://www.swishtalk.com/showthread.php?t=14215

    Most images will be a red 'x' but some will be available but the fun we had will be viewable by text.

    Ithink we did 52ish pages..ahahahahhaa I remember it well. My name was/is millie_frise in the thread. I still go to the forum but I feel so alone now without my old friends when I vist...no fun anymore.

    I should add that if you are a Swish user and need help then that forum is still moderated by great mods.

    Now later this afternoon a trip down memory lane...sigh...

    Me, quite a bit younger but still little ole me.

    RED HOT CHILLY PEPPER :-) Dear stop the culpability trip there is no reason for this. A Forum is a Forum and what ever people make of it .. its a bit like in UK you step on a block in a park and you shout out to your lungs content. Some will ignore you some will stop by watch or even listen some will reply and some will take you for a cup of tea when you are out of breath. These are the ones worth waiting for as they will show you pics of their families. pets and if your are lucky even their tomatos and invite you home.. god forbid in Canada..it seems so NOT "in" to be invited home. That is why most of our friends are French, Egyptians, Columbians, Mexicans, Germans, South Africans, Guatemala, Venezuela Greek, Portugese and yes French Canadians ;-) but the what ever real Vancouverites either live in 500s sq feet and dont have a place for my size 34 bum or just prefer to take you for dinner and make sure you will share the bill. Not our way.. haha So be it ..ENJOY petal colurs from our garden wild roses honeysuckle and clematis ready for a bath oil SPA LIKE a.s.a.p. Care to join the treatement sit down relax take a deep breath bubble bubble .... it only takes imagination to relax !

    Cute pic Katalina25!

    Thanks for joining in and breaking the ice. I love that swishtalk idea. This forum seems a bit uptight and conservative sometimes, so I thought this thread would make it a bit more personal and friendly. Not so formal and stiff.

    Over the years, I hope it fills up with many UBC members pictures, chats, comments, and potential friendships even. It's nice to see who you're chatting with.

    It's kinda fun too...

    Not a culpability trip Vicarious - just wanting to lighten things up like they were before, with a little humor. Besides, if you can't abuse yourself - someone else will! LoL.

    Alright - what did you say your home address was, Vicarious? All this talk about candles, and bubblebaths - I love that! Incense too. Joking of course about the address - I already have it!

    Yeah, I am a maritimer, where some of the friendliest people in all of Canada come from. Such a shame I ended up in Ontario, really. Down home (Nova Scotia), you grab a plate and stay for dinner if you are there at mealtime - it's a given. Here (Ontario), you'd be asked to leave because they're having supper!!!
