Good and not so Good

Sat. 5th June 2010.
            The second half of this week has been warm and fairly sunny and the countryside is quickly changing into early summer. Somethings have fared well whilst others are struggling, I'm refering to this years Bee Orchids which are going to have a poor season on a couple of sites that I've visited.The sites are too dry with the lack of rain and it looks like they've all suffered from frost damage and on one site the orchids are growing on a hillside which is on a geoligists trail and where the rock samples are being extracted the orchids are being trampled on.
    Better news from my own little garden , it's now taken on its early summer look around the stream and pond  with all the late spring flowers at their best. In my old alpine trough the first of about 80 wild orchids has just opened, the seeds have just blown in over the years and germinated and established themselves. In the next few weeks many more orchids will start flowering around the garden and I hope I can beat last years total of 184 orchid spikes.

  14. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  18. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
    video to make your point. You obviously know what
    youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
    on just posting videos to your site when you could be
    giving us something enlightening to read?

  20. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question
    in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
    writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thank you!

    videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but
    with images and videos, this blog could undeniably be one of the best in its field.

  24. Hey there. I noticed your website title, "Blogger: Orchids,Nature and My Outdoor Life" does not really reflect the content of your web site.
    When composing your site title, do you believe it's most beneficial to write it for Search engine optimisation or for your audience? This is one thing I've been struggling with because
    I want great search rankings but at the same time I want the
    best quality for my site visitors.
