Tia, if you just copy the HTML code (NOT the URL, but the HTML code string) for your photos right into the body of your message, we can then see the photos right in the message, instead of having to go to your personal photo site and use your ID and password (not really a good idea).

Patty, I don't know the difference between the url and html. I'm computer stupid.

Just try to make your profile "UnPrivate" so that you can just post a link straight to your photos.

And html is usually a long chain of numbers and letters under or around your photo somewhere. Sometimes called a tag.

Unfortunately, Shutterfly doesn't give you an HTML code option. It just gives you an embedded code for Facebook/Blogger (you can get to the embedded code, but it's not in the correct coding string for GardenWeb, which uses basic HTML). I would suggest using Photobucket.com. It is much easier. Once you've uploaded your photos and go back to your album, all you have to do is simply float your mouse over a photo. A code window pops right up. Just left click once in the HTML code window, and it gets copied immediately to your Windows Clipboard. Then, all you need to do is enter another message here, and RIGHT click in the body of the message and select "Paste". The HTML code will then be pasted right into the body of your message. When you then click on "Preview Message", your photo will show up (you'll know you copied the correct code, then.) Very simple :-)

Looks like some form of bacterial canker. Did you buy it from the nursery like that? If so I would show them the pictures if it has a warranty. I think you can apply copper to try and stop it or if its on a branch you can cut back to green wood (try to cut way back away from the canker) On the trunk try a copper spray(Bonide or Something similar) You can cut it back down but it might kill the tree and I dont know if new growth would begin again. It might but Im unsure.
