WYSIWYG


The 400 error is still lingering and may have taken up permanent residence.  So I am now back to doing a post totally in Blogger format.
The garden has grown in leaps and bounds, well, with ute loads of compost and garden mix, plants and pots, and the lonely gossamer grass has some friends.






Dione over at The Clever Chameleon has started her " Love with a Twist" and the lovely balloon shapes quickly form a #1 Purple Poodle. I know the last 3 months of the Bears are still to be stitched, but they are on fabric and ready to go!!!
I am still deciding  the background fabric,pale or dark?





Now Blogger changes the font colour, insists on underlining the words, so I am almost in as big a muddle as having  no photos.
Never mind, photos or font colours, life continues happily.

Haha!!! The underlines have gone,and the blue text has changed to black. Hooray for Blogger.

Susan Heather said...

A lot of work has been done in the garden and it is looking good.

I think the underlines have something to do with the difference between American and British spelling. My recommendation is to find someone among your blogging friends who is not having trouble, and ask them what they have for their settings. I was lucky to get help from another blogging friend. Still a few issues but some improvement.

Hello,

Hooray for photos. I love the gossamer grasses. They are so pretty. The edging looks wonderful around your garden! Love the cute poodle! Have a happy day and a great new week ahead.

At least I can see your photos now!

Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl said...

I'm so glad that the text issues resolved and the photos are working!

Sandra Walker said...

Totally with you on the blogger frustration. Besides not being able to comment on embedded comment boxes, there are strange formatting things that have happened to my blog that I cannot change... anyhow on to the positive! Love the pics of your new home, so lovely and green, love those grasses, think I mentioned we put some in just like that too! Will be watching what BG you choose for Dione's QAL.

Your words and photos posted ok. I hope you find out what's going on with it soon. But no problem on our side. Your garden is going to be beautiful. I hope you are enjoying your new home. I love seeing the photos of it. Have a wonderful Sunday. Carol

I can see your photos fine and looks like everything is growing well. I have my frustrations with Blogger too but I have never gotten that 400 error notice. Good luck with it all. I will look forward to more info and photos of your lovely new digs!

Barb said...

Things are growing at the new place and finally blogger is cooperating with you. Great news, Jean!

I enjoyed seeing your gossamer grass pots, Jean. there are so many beautiful kinds of grasses in the world. Colorado has an official state grass called "blue gamma." I love the poodle. It looks good on the light background. It might be striking against black. Wishing you and Hugh a great week. We have snow coming tonight ~ just a couple of inches.

the "400" error is because I do my post with Open Live Writer, offline, and then publish with Blogger. After I searched with Google, it seems this is world wide,and so many bloggers are moving to WordPress.I am not sure what I will do,meantime just do each post in Blogger as I did years ago.
Meantime #2 we have a heatwave here, the aircon is doing overtime in cooling mode, and way down south,smoke from the fires in Tasmania are drifting over to us.

Stay cool! Oh, how odd it feels to say that.....I'm hunkered down with a cuppa inside and looking at the cold rain. A friend in Pennsylvania says she will get more snow and frigid temps. Hope that the fires stay away from you - your new home is lovely, and you re making me jealous with your gardening. Longing for spring here. :)

I'm smiling because I know all about those underlines (ha Ha)...The internet sure does keep us guessing... However..I'm so glad that you found a solution... It is so nice to see the bustling work in a garden .... I love dianthus ... and can't wait for Spring. You seem to have everything in order at your new home... Soon it will feel like HOME again...Your little poodle creation is so sweet... It reminds me to get onto my projects for Valentines...Thanks for the inspiration...Hugs

I love seeing you working in your garden, especially at your new place.
Jean, we could pay to have someone come and do our drive, but we don't. I'm not in favour of salt, besides it's a 100 m long drive!
