Greetings to all my WordPress friends.
Having been an avid gardener all my life, I try to keep my interest alive each year even though the body is starting to advise me that as the years go by, the body does age, a symptom of aging that I refuse to accept.
I like to plant the seasonal vegetables and fruits and take pleasure in watching their progress each day, Ana enjoys the garden as much as I do.
So far this year, we have planted mainly tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, big red and every other tomato species we could find. Its great on a hot summer morning here, to wander in the garden, giving the plants their early morning drink whilst munching on a cherry tomatoe, the sweet flavour lingering in your mouth as the delectable juices run down your chin, a gardeners delight.
Amongst the Tomatoes this year, after much advice from Ana, we planted Marigolds between the tomatoes, apparently this is an organic tip to keep away insects and the white butterfly scourge.
For two years running now, I have planted decorative flowers to brighten up the patio area, ( the smoking area much to Ana,s dismay ).
Both last year and this year they have bloomed in vibrant colours.
I attach a picture of this years delight for your pleasure.
Now to change the subject, I need some advise from any of my wordpress followers on a problem that I have with wordpress, as some of you might know I have had problems with wordpress over the last 3 months which seem to have been sorted out now. I wasn,t receiving notifications of blogs and friends were dropping off.
Now to my specific problem, before I post in wordpress, I use Office works to type my blog before posting, office works allows me to adjust the size of my lettering, change the colouring of the words and change the type, such as font, I like to use Ariel.
To clarify, I like to change my style, the size of the lettering first, as I think that a slightly larger lettering is better for those that may have a bit of a problem with eyesight.
I like to change the colouring of the wording, especially in my Aussie Ian space which is love and romance poetry, the colouring reflecting my mood, ie, if I am feeling hot and steamy in my love and romance poetry, then it becomes purple, if its peaceful and calm wording, then its either blue or some suitable colour.
The problem arises when I finish my draft, I copy it and go to wordpress to paste it into my site.
However wordpress reverts my blog back specifically to the basics of black, small lettering, like the writing in this blog at present.
So if any of my good friends in WordPress could enlighten me on what the solution is I would be grateful.
Summer is well and truly with us here now, beautiful days and warm summer nights.
I hope all my friends are in great health and wish you much love and happiness
Aussie Emu aka Aussie Ian
