Finally!!!

lindaruzicka(Z6 PA)April 27, 2008

I finally have the majority of rocks moved around!..."doing the rock dance" I outlined two new flowerbeds with the leftovers. I also outlined the beds that originally had the rocks in them..,"flexing muscle"...I think they look pretty nice. Now they'll be ready to plant. I'm planting some things that are okay with the colder night temps that we're still getting and moving around stuff that's coming up.

I also picked up two rod iron garden chairs on free cycle yesterday. They need some sanding and repainting but they'll look awesome when I get them finished....I just LOVE gardening season!!..."trying to wipe off dirty hands on pants"

Lol Linda,I thought thats what you would say! I actually just pulled a ton of them out of the ground where I am putting my veggie garden,not too sure where they are going as of yet, due to the fact that after winter they will be gravel. The sand stone I get alot of always comes out of the ground in one piece and than after the winter freezes it always breaks apart,so I wont border any gardens with these particular ones,I learned my lesson a few years ago on that. More than likely they will go under the pine tree with the rest!
I have an email all made up with instructions on how to post pics,if interested send me an email and I will send it your way! :)

Kym,you arent supposed to warn people about me...lol..how will I ever get anyone here to do all this stuff if you keep warning them...lol...

Why don't you start a new thread and post the info. I would love to see it and likely critique it. If something can be confusing, I can find it...lol

Hey...faver of y'all. How about every 3rd post or so, you maybe sign you post with your 'given' name...unless you are maybe very suspicious or private or something.

I find it hard to address folks when it is a member name...unless it is someone like Linda (L) or chrizty above.
Thank you Wendy! so much easier than addressing you as sassybutterfly_2008.

Who is Angie and Kym...you can see that someone new would not know this.

Sue...who has the crabbies today for some reason

Oh no! I am in a mood today also,yesterday it was so beautiful and today and the rest of the week is to be icky! Why does Maw Nature jerk us around like this?...lol

Ok I will see if I am able to post it being that it has a pic of one of the pics from my photobucket album in it. I found it was easier to explain if folks could see what I was talking about. I am assuming I would have to upload the email into photobucket if it allows me. Last time I tried to scan something (text,my sons hand written want list I wanted to share because it was oh so cute) and post it ,photobucket wouldn't let me upload it for some reason.This is the only reason I haven't posted it as of yet,I just send it to those that mention they have had problems with it. Give me a few and I will see what I can do!

Ok,I use Photobucket:
http://photobucket.com/?link=topmenu
Photobucket was recommended to me by several people so that is what I went with.It is very easy to use. First of course you have to join,it is free.Then you upload your pics.Once you upload your pic will appear like this:

move : tag : edit : share : delete
*Picture Here *
Email & IM
Direct Link
HTML Code
IMG Code

Then all you do is click on the word" HTML Code",a little yellow box will appear,it will say "copied" then you just paste it to the "post a follow up" form to post the pic directly into the thread,if you want to create clickable thumbnails (preferred) you can select a picture from your album, and you will find options to create codes at the bottom of where your pictures are located,click on th option to generate codes,choose which set of codes you would like to use by clicking on it,you will see the little yellow copied box and than all you have to do is paste it into the body of the message form. If you want to edit it before posting,like say you want to resize it so it isn't gigantic,you click on "edit" which is located right above the pic.That will open up a new page,you will find options above your pic,one of them will be "resize",that will give you the option to resize it to what is appropriate for where you want to post,avatar size,thumbnail size or website/email,I always use the website/email option at GW. I re-started a thread awhile back on the gallery side of WS ,the one Don had started was full when I went to test it out before doing a real post,you can practice there.I will include the link.

I am by no means an expert at this,this is just the way I know how to do it,I am not familiar with any other way than photobucket,which I found to be very easy and user friendly. Good Luck to you!

OK Sue,what did I miss?...lol...laughing and ducking
