    Thanks For doing that. It would be better moved to the comp room and not game room though.

    It's best to Report your original post, and request a move to the Forum Competition and Themes section.

    Thanks for doing this though. :)

    By the time I get out into the garden it will be too dark to see anything so I've taken the liberty of producing a sketch of Kate's holly in charcoal, photographing that and finishing it of in photoshop.

    Not sure how much I'll get done today. Just had an eye migraine again. Different to normal visually, but that's gone now. Now I have the headache, stiff neck and nausea. Yuk!

    I shall have to see if I can go for a lunchtime walk and find some holly. For the challenge, I have a list of topics for January and some to go on into February. I'm trying to keep a list and just add random words to it when they spring into my mind (or as the topic today is holly, maybe that should be "sprig into my mind"?)

    Oh that's rotten. Hope the after effects pass quickly. Usually leaves me exhausted and somewhat incoherent - thoughts are there but getting them from brain to mouth is a bit hit and miss!

    This probably won't work at 800 px. There is a holly tree collection at Erddig. It isn't terribly photogenic but I thought I had had a go at it some time. If that is the case then I deleted the lot. I found a survivor that I cropped quite hard to exclude the grass and only have the holly leaves. When we are allowed back into Wales I'll have another go

    Not only did I manage to get out for a walk, but it took me unexpectedly past some sort of holly tree

    Yup, worse than the one about the eccentric classist, took his mates to a crowded pub, ordered 5 beers with a gesture and got barred.

    In my numbers I do not have a single 4, so have 2 of them!
