       Good Morning J-land, Its another beautiful morning here just can't believe all the wonderful weather.  The photograph above is of a Northern Marsh Orchid I took on Tuesday we had stopped a place where there was a forest of pine trees part of it has been cleared and two ponds have appeared and made a wonderful place for wildlife.  I took more pictures and will share them later.  What do you think of AOL front page, Stuart was annoyed last night as he could not find his beloved Sudoku he used to just click on it on the home page.  I did find it for him but why change that handy little tool bar.  Stuart does his puzzle every evening and really enjoyed it so he did not want to loose it. Collecting Ellen today and will do my shopping at the same time as we have to go to Perth to collect her.  This morning its the dump for us with the old desk. I worked it out and it must be at least 25 years old from MFI for about £10. It was bought for Richard when he was still at school haws that for value.  Its a bit wobbly now and I will be sorry to see it go but the usual reason no room. Well off for my breakfast hope you all have a lovely day take care. Love

Lovely 'Photo Joan....
Don't like the changes from AOL!
It's been a while since I shopped in Perth, when my Mum was in Hospital there.
Enjoy your Day....Aileen....X

What a stunning flower!  So glad that have mad habitat for wildlife. I absolutely loathe the new welcome page as I have said on my journal today.  I cannot find things either.

Hi Joan, please tell Stuart that he can find the Siduko (?)  in the message boards under Learning. If I can find the link to it I`m send it to you. I`ve already told AOL exactly what I think about the `new look`.  Nobody seems to like it and I can`t blame them.  I love that flower, it`s really lovely. :o)

I took some pics of Spotted Orchids today, on the Chiltern Hills. They were everywhere, couldn't believe my eyes. The Northern Marsh Orchid is a wondrful sight, such a deep purple. I'm hoping to get some pics of Bee Orchids, fingers crossed, but not sure exactly when they bloom. Will have to refer to my Roger Phillips, Wildflowers of Britain. It's a great book.
Hope you had a lovely day. Take care.
Love Sylvia xx
