What a beautiful place Buttercup - and those views are immense.  Love the terraces, and look forward to seeing your projects as they come along.  Now I can see why you get problems with howling gales

Oh, but KEF - remember what happened when they were "on a break" - chaos ensued that took another seven series to put right

Good to see Fairy too.  Sympathise about the builders - ours were here for 6 months, and lovely chaps though they were I was mighty pleased to see the back of them.  Think the highlight of the whole experience was a month of microwaved food, and washing up plates in plastic trugs in the bath.  But it transformed our house, so was worth it in the end.  Just keep repeating that mantra, ad infinitum, whilst you smile through gritted teeth (gritted, no doubt, due to builders dust)

anyone know what this plants is?

The last one could be forget me not, and the first is a weed in my garden - appears everywhere, but I don't know what its called (apart from a menace).

Looks like some sort of euphorbia to me - but I have never seen it in a profusion like that.  If I am right (one of the experts willbe along in a minute) then be careful - the sap is nasty and can burn your skin/eyes, so wear gloves, and a pair of safety specs.
