It was warmish and muggy today, but summer?

By the way, it is probably posted somewhere, but I haven't seen it yet. What are the rules on pp?

@Reinardina - my understanding is that there are no limits to pp unless stated otherwise, so this week there are no limits.

We've been promised some summer on Thursday. Until then it's overcast and rain all the way ;)

It's actually brilliant here (Southampton) at the moment! It could well be summer!

A quickie, before I set out on my weekly 'slave labour trip.' (I'm a volunteer park ranger, doing - with a group of like minded people - a lot of the work, the 'official' rangers don't get round to.)

When posting a photo on the site for the competition, is it 'the done thing' to ask for critique/comments? I did it with my last entry, but I don't think I should have.

Your opinions please?

My opinion, FWIW, is that is should await until after the result is announced
Whatever and ever. Amen

When you upload a photo it should ask you where to upload to then, select from the dropdown list, Weekly Competition it will remove the option to comment on it.  :tup:

I know my entry is similar to last weeks but I just seem to spend that much time watching cricket and it was such a beautiful day.  ::)
BOOZE!!! Helping ugly people have sex.

Finally escaped the house guests for a minute and managed to get some shots of a few of the late sunflowers. I might try for something else later today, but who knows. Enjoy yourselves down the pub lads.
