Ngs first timer

My friend and I opened our gardens in Banstead for the first time on June 5th. It was crazy. Only have ordinary semi detached houses. 395 people came and lived them.

    It was, we were exhausted but made nearly £3000.00 for charity. Just trying to work out how to downsize photos to post, any idea? Good at plants not technology.

    I use a programme called 'Paint' which is free.

     'open in paint', click 'resize', I make them 30% of the original, save and it's done. I usually copy to desktop or another file first so I still have the full size image.

    Not surprised you were exhausted

    This is a Mathiasella Burpleurides green dream with a napita six hills giant climbing through it. Sorry about spelling.

    It must have been an exhausting day, but you've done really well.
