Random stuff

If you're not getting email notification when people comment on your blog, and want to, try this. (Thanks to Amanda Fleet for finding that link and passing it on.)












I've got stories in both the current issue of My Weekly magazine and Take A Break's Fiction Feast.









These photos are a few of those which I took of Mottisfont Abbey gardens (Hampshire, England). The National Trust (who own Mottisfont) will be using a selection of my pictures in their twitter feed (and maybe other social media sites) next week.









Four collections of 24 of my flower and garden related stories are now available. Over The Garden Fence includes a story set at Mottisfont.





It's so warm that if we went back to the gardens today, I'd be VERY tempted to dip my toes in that pond. Do you think anyone would mind?

Such beautiful photos! Also, thanks for mentioning the link on how to get comments to email again.

Ooh congratulations on your photos being used by NT. And more congrats for the stories.

Cool about the photos.
Go ahead and dip your toes.
I've never gotten email notification of comments. My inbox would explode.

Hi Patsy - excellent re the stories and then the photos too - that's great news. I like to get email notifications ... and then can delete any that are suspect - so must get that side organised ... by commenting and ticking my own box to receive comments works for me - forgot today's post! Cheers Hilary

Hope it's useful, Cherie – I know lots of people missed getting these.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Lindsay.

I can see it'd be too much in your case, Alex. I found it useful for my other blog though as people sometimes ask questions on old posts and I was missing seeing those.

Patsy said...

The notifications thing is particularly useful in the case of dodgy spam, Hilary.

Fay Knowles said...

Beautiful photos, Patsy! Congratulations on National Trust using them and congratulations on your published stories too. Wonderful!

Nick Wilford said...

Congrats on the publications. I can see why they would use your photos, it looks gorgeous!

I do a lot of random.

And yeah, congrats on the new stories.

Thank you, Patsy (and Amanda) for the notification info - it hadn't occurred to me that GDPR would affect that.

The image of the poppies is gorgeous! And well done on getting the NT to use your images.
