Horizon, I think the site handles the uploads fine. I resized the picture to 800x520 odd, helps keep the filesize down a bit as it's from my hi-rez scanned in photolibrary (4,000 odd prints taken with my trusty 35mm Nikon FT2 and a selection of lenses) Selected the attach icon and then upload from my computer. Browsed to the file and then selected it to upload. I then inserted at "full size" Process seemed pretty painless. I noted what your VB guy said about not inserting image links to sites that are only http.
Little Wing, Yes it's one of those. Yours looks magnificent. I bought it at the local garden centre to complement the other exotics as it said it was hardy to -10C. At that time I hadn't seen any in the UK, they are now quite common on the coast here and down in Cornwall. If I'd known how big they can get I'd have put it in the side garden instead. Those short spines near the main stem take no prisoners so I trim them with secateurs. Still got me several times and drew blood. Another exotic I have is a Mediterranian Hibiscus with huge red flowers. Saw these growing on Cyprus as hedges. That comes indoors a soon as the temperatures drop below +10C at night as it's super tender. I'd love to grow a Flame Tree Delonix regia I saw some in Egypt a few years ago but I guess the only way would be in a big tub and bring inside for the winter.
