    Time for some spring flowers.

    One of our succulents, the graptoveria, is flowering away. Only just noticed it. :blush: This plant really spreads quite quickly. Just as well it is an attractive plant. It, also, grows readily from dropped leaves.

    The Chameleon miniature roses have opened one flower. The first since it was pruned.

    This is the second flower for this Brazilian Walking iris flowering stem. It was one of the two that flowered yesterday. Have never seen them repeat flower so quickly. The remnants of the old flower can be just seen.

    Here are some more pics of the graptoveria's flowers. It certainly has quite a display this year. :dance010:

    The fuchsia has a couple or so flowers. Not as many as before it was pruned a few months ago. Oh well. Shame as it is such a pretty little flower.

    Great flowers! Hooray for Spring!

    I have been trying for days to get this thread to open! to be able to see the grapetoveria's flowers. That is a beautiful close up of them. I love your macro pics they are so clear

    Oh dear, I wonder what is wrong, Dawn?? Is it just this thread or are there others that you are having trouble opening?? :??:

    The graptoveria flowers are very interesting close up, with their little bright pink dots. Haven't done a close up of them this year. Shall do so, if I remember. :blush: The new camera doesn't do a bad job but the older Fuji was quite good too. :clap:

    No Joy! it isn't just this thread. But for some reason certain images won't open for me on several threads. They just sit there with the text! I leave it and go away to give it time to download, then when after an hour sometimes I come back if they still haven't downloaded. I then refresh and sometimes they come up immediately and then sometimes they just carry on being "stuck". It is not because of this site I don't think. Because it happens to me with other pics of mine in Picasa too. It seems to be images that are very light in colour that is the only common factor I can put my finger on ?? I just mentioned it as it looks like I don't visit certain threads, but sometimes I just give up when I am busy and then wham I am lucky they download?? Sorry just realised I used the wrong terminology in that last post. I meant "pic download" not "thread won't open"

    That is a shame, Dawn. Especially as much of this forum consists of pics. :apgn: :O

    Bruiser wonders if the cache needs clearing. :??: We are lucky in that Bruiser has "souped" up both our computers so we don't have much trouble with things loading. :pc2: His especially. :whistle:

    I will try the Cache thing Joy thanks bruiser! DH says he thinks it is the images on my comp that slow it down. So many too many. We have installed more memory and it went well for a while. I am not too worried about it, its not too bad ....things is when its normal I think its fast

    :donald: This is so true, Dawn. :lol!: When I think back to just how slow things were in the past, I don't know how we put up with it. :roll: This was just the recent past, too. :whistle:

    When I remember to clear my browsing history, & with it, the cookies & cache, I am pleasantly surprised at the pick up in speed I get. :cool2 Keep putting off doing this because I have to log back into various sites which, I think, is tedious. (Poor me :( :roll:) :lol2:

    A close up of the Chameleon miniature rose flower which was the bud shown further up. This was taken yesterday. There is a marked difference in the coloration as it has matured.

    Yes, it has done, Dawn, even though it doesn't seem to be much bigger overall. The plant stems aren't any thicker. It is hard to imagine how small its original pot was in comparison to its present one. :lol2:

    Pink seems to be the colour of choice for the Chameleon during the cooler (nights) months. :smile:
