Things have gone a bit haywire in the Gippygarden these last couple of days. Well, on the more bloggy level anyway. The garden is as it was, which is officially “getting there slowly”.
I dearly miss being able to log on to Blotanical which has gone ‘off the air’ for a couple of days. But I am very happy that I just discovered Meredith over at Victory Garden Redux was passing on the following message from Stuart:
“Hi, blotanists. Blotanical may be down for a few days as we sort out some issues and migrate to a new server. Please pass this message on.”
Phew, Not gone for good then!
In the short time I’ve been part of the Blotanical online gardening community I’ve really grown fond of it and all the other bloggers I’ve met there, so I feel a little alone in the wilderness without it. Silly really, but there it is!
I’m not really up to speed with the technical aspect of Blotanical (as I’m barely getting a handle on blogging), but I understand that Stuart runs it on his own, which would be an enormous undertaking in itself, without a life to be getting on with as well.
Anyway the Gippy Garden’s other online problem is my camera. Well, I’m hoping it’s just the memory card and not the whole camera. I am unable to take or download any photos. The camera keeps asking me to format the card then it shuts down when I try to*sigh*.
I discovered this when I decided it might be fun to join in Garden Bloggers Bloom Day over at May Dreams Garden for the first time and raced out to take some pics . Only when I came back I couldn’t download a single photo from my camera, so that’s why you get to look at my ‘back cat-alogue’ of The Supervisor instead of some pretty blooms!
Blotanical being offline has made me think about putting my favourite sites on a blogroll after all, so I can still find them. I always seem to find the long way of doing things and as I didn’t think to bookmark more than one or two, I’m currently running around looking each one up! The list will grow sloooowly over the next few days!
