Sorry, hopefully, third time lucky. I am still finding my way around.

Larisa: Have you got any to upload here please? What is your country please? My eyesight is poor and the font is so small!

alp, are you using a keyboard and a mouse? If so, try holding down the "Control" button on the keyboard and push the wheel on the mouse as if you are scrolling back up the page. That should make everything bigger. (y) :)

Beautiful flowers!!

Hiya MaryMary: This might solve my problem. Don't understand web designers' fascination with grey. Or is this grey or black? LOL! I'm so blind.

Thank you. But I prefer the photographs in Gardeners' Chat but I was told to have a thread somewhere. I might go back to that one as the pics are much bigger. What are your fav flower,MM?

I did not think the grey was a default setting...?

Hmm, try clicking the link below and that will take you to your preferences page. Where it says, "Site Colour Scheme:" - see if you can change your preference from "dark" to "default."
https://www.gardening-forums.com/account/preferences

The reason I told you how to enlarge the screen was so you could participate in more threads - you can make the font the size you want!!


My favorite flowers? They are pink, purple and blue!! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

MM: Can I change the font size in the preference setting as well, MM! Thank you. Now it's much better for the eyes.

The only way I know that you can control the font size is if you use the "Control and scroll" option I told you about, and that only works with a keyboard and mouse. If there is another way, it will take someone with more computer savvy than I to tell you.

I only know what works for me!! :D

Yes, much better than I change the font every time. Now I can see much better. Why is there a thumb up icon? LOL! Thank you!

It's a clever way of magnifying the screen. Brilliant!

You know how to use a phone to upload. Vishu said she was using a mobile site, whatever it means! And she upload a pic on a message board. So for private conversation, you can click my icon and START A CONVERSATION!

I think! LOL! I don't have a clue and now I'm trying to tell you what to do! :LOL:

It's drizzly and cold here and it was very windy too. Logan: MaryMary taught me to use control + scroll if you have a mouse to make the screen bigger. But I gather you don't use a mouse or a keyboard. Yes, I know. I'm hopeless.

Hey alp, thanks a lot!!! For the tulip!! Love it!!
Hellebores are beautiful.
I had that very same lettuce variety, the previous winter. I didn't eat, either....... But in spring, they bolted, grew tall like a mini pine tree.....they were really beautiful.


Btw, alp, am a 'he', not a 'she':p:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
