I found a few pots and things to use. I have the winter to get a few things. There are ferns everywhere, they landscaped here with them. Most are gone now, but I’m going to put one up for in the rack. I paid $50 to an old friend that had it. Maybe too much, it’s all rusty. But I got a cool fireplace tool set, and a sweet kindling stand, and a portable table saw. She threw in some nice white logs for display in the fireplace. All in all a good deal.

Picked up a solitary Bee House, gotta start getting things for the rack. Spring is coming. Ended up being cheaper on Amazon than English Gardens.

I had gutters put on and I took some pics, without the gutter the rain just dumped on the rack and everything was just drenched, but now I’m not seeing the pics.

If it says too large you must edit the photo to make it smaller I presume.

Well I dont know how to resize, I run a forum, I just re worked the pic size so someone on an iPhone or iPad can shoot a pic and post. I’m using SMF software, this site has better I imagine, all the admin has to do is re work the size. Everything I post is from the same phone, not sure why some are larger. Doesn’t make any sense.
All you do on the Amin side is allow larger pics, then the site resizes to your allowed size. Easy.
That’s dumb, I just took a pic of the pic and it posted.

Very nice and happy you figured out a work around for posting the photo. Maybe let @Becky know about this issue. The admins are good at fixing problems.

Sorry you’ve been experiencing difficulty uploading large files to the forum. As I’m sure you understand it costs money to host a website, and the larger the files the more resources are required which is why we set a limit on file sizes. Unfortunately our forum software doesn’t have the capability to resize really large files, but if you need help with learning how to resize images please let me know (y)

People post pics from their device, the SITE uploader re sizes them to your limit. There’s no extra charge, in the end the size you limit is posted. You have to keep up with current iPhones / iPads. I just did all this. It doesn’t cost anymore. Letting members post old flip phone pic sizes just isn’t good.

It’s time to hang up your bee hotels. Some have mud still sealing off the tubes still, I read they will still hatch, I Stored the hotel in my garage over the winter, I’ve read you should let it go dormant over the winter, it’s 60ish in my garage, I heat it so I’m not sure if that harmed the bees. I
It it back out yesterday, it gets morning sun. and it’s time to put out the baker rack. I found a cool bee pot yesterday at the fruit market. I bought it for the rack.
I also read to put a tray of mud neary by for the bees.

I have a nice big one I bought from Costco, need to get it hung up, thanks for the reminder.

The birds are starting to visit all of my bird houses, even the new ones
