    Welcome, Alp! You certainly got off to a great start--we love photos, especially of gorgeous blooms like yours. There are photos of gardens, plants, pets, etc. spread all over the various forums. Have fun seeing what we all have posted!

    Welcome! :) Wonderful flowers! Tell us about them more on the forum pages. The Hell├ęborus on your avatar - grows in your garden too?

    @alp, yes, you can write as much as you like about your flowers. I would love to read. You can do this in between the photos as you upload. But it is better if you share photos and write about them on one of the forums. The intro forum is not the best place because many people will not see them here. There are all sorts of places to do this. You can make a garden showcase, you can start a new thread, you can put them in the "What's Looking Good" thread or "What does your garden look like today" thread under "General Garden Talk". You can enter the monthly photo contest when your flowers relate to the monthly theme. The possibilities are endless:)

    Okay you can do this in a couple of ways. Go to the home page. In the upper left corner there are 3 titles, Forums, Showcase, Members. Select "Showcase", select start a new thread. Or you can choose a forum from the list, click on the name of the forum and at the top of the forum page you will see "start a new thread". Good luck, it is easy, you just need to become a little bit familiar with the layout.:)

    I wonder if people would mind if I have my thread here! The photos seem to be much better. Let me have another go please

    The 2nd one is a Amaryllis Minerva. The rest of the Amaryllis could be Apple blossom
    Then there is my Blonde Inge snowdrop. Sorry, too small to see now. But two amaryllis together to show how different in sizes they are.
