Trouble with photos

Anyone following this blog may have noticed the photographs suddenly fell of the page.  No, I have no idea why.  Even my techie husband agrees it is nothing I have or haven't done.  Indeed if you scout around it seems to be a problem with Blogger that has been around a while and has no solution.

It will be impossible to put them all back in.  Can't tell if I am cross or upset right now!

There are a few of the Garden and the Lotty in albums (links in the left-hand column) but that won't cover half of what's gone missing.

Another open garden near us

This isn't one I have been to and sadly we are away this weekend otherwise we would have gone.

Badger Corner
11 Brockclough Road
Whitewell Bottom
BB4 9LG 

Sunday 10th    11am to 4pm

Once again Dawn and Ken Taylor will be opening their Rossendale garden, with the invaluable help of friends and family, this time to raise funds for the Rawtenstall Remembrance Parade.

The extensive garden in Whitewell Bottom has been cultivated over many years and is an oasis on several levels with steps and slopes, lawn, ponds, a woodland walk, stream and is packed with a variety of shrubs, trees, vegetables and plants, together with accompanying wildlife. 
Many people come year on year and find there is always something new to see.  The event is an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones as well as to appreciate the results of many hours ofvery hard work. 
Tea, coffee and biscuits are included in the entrance donation of £3.00, child entry is free, but they must be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult.  Home-propagated plants, home made cakes and Auntie Viv’s Strawberry Cream teas will be on sale. 
Disabled parking area only – please park at Whitewell Bottom Community Centre, just a short walk away. 

Kind regards
