Here I am in Killin in 2012 and the falls.

 I wasn't up early enough to see a sepia sunrise!

We have snow here too. -3°  Forecast was for sun, how wrong can you get! There are big flakes but they don't show in the photo. Must get that parasol in!

I never even noticed Monty's arm waving, so had to look for it tonight. I suppose he does a bit, but it doesn't annoy me. I rather like his enthusiasm.

I would like to know too. I know that piece so well, it's beautiful, but my mind has gone blank!

As you said Perthshire I looked at the map. It's near where my brother lives in Crieff and where I've been on holiday, Killin. We went hill walking with my brother near Crieff a couple of years ago. He often walks round there with his 2 Border Collies, he always wears a kilt.

Did anyone see the programme about Ireland tonight? Stunning coast line. Wish they'd showed more of Dingle though. They just showed a potato competition. After OH No1 died years ago I took my daughter there for a riding holiday. We'd both been suffered from stress and loss and weren't getting on well. We had a lovely time, galloping on beaches and riding over a mountain, just what we needed.

Lunch guests have gone, dish washer is on.

Been lovely and sunny, but still cold.

I made all the curtains in this house and used to make my daughters' and my clothes when I was younger. I suppose that's the key word "young", had more energy then and worked more quickly.

Morning all. -4°, the world is white here, frost not snow. Is it snow where you are Dove?

I like sewing, hate knitting. Trouble is that my children save up all their sewing and mending jobs for me! And now I have arthritis in my fingers.

Made mincemeat this afternoon, then made first course, salmon pate, and prepared the veg for lunch tomorrow. 8 of us after church, including the vicar.

It's got very cold, think there will be a frost tomorrow.

North Facing Border

I grow hostas, pulmonarias, heucheras (different coloured leaves), aquilegias, epimediums, brunnera (good one is Jack Frost) and Geranium macrorrhizum in my shady places. There are other hardy geraniums that will grow in a north border.
