I find then fairly easy from seed if sown at this time of year, but they take very easily from cuttings too.

Evening all. It's been persisting here most of the day. We needed the rain though. Not often I can say that! I fed the grass just before the building work started. I think if it hadn't been so cold and dry it would be about three feet high by now  

I've steered clear of that thread KEF. I don't care for the argy bargy and I don't see the point of debating it either. I've yet to hear any hard facts from either side of the divide so I can't make an informed comment. 

Thought Marcella was poor. Badly executed, too many loose ends and red herrings, and some characters poorly drawn.  Her character, in particular, not explained well enough -  what did she really get up to and why? What did the chap with the 'illegal' brother have to do with it all? Disappointing when it was from the creator of The Bridge which is superb.

You need a deer fence lily. They're not cheap either....they're deer/dear....get it?

My spam folder is now full of notifications - despite the fact my default setting for them all is 'off'!  

And that's since I've updated it again.

Morning all/afties Pat.

Seems weird to have had a long spell of rain. It's been freakishly dry round here.

Good luck for today Dove and Wonks. Difficult time, so I wish you lots of love and hope that it all goes well. xxx

Glad you had a lovely time chicky. Is there such a thing as a bad view there? I doubt it 

Glad things are improving for your hubby too Joyce. Hope he enjoys his big birthday.

Lovely pic doc. How are things going with the neighbours? 

I can't retain any information from further back, so apologies. Internet was very iffy yesterday too. I'm finding this screen very glarey while I have this head cold so I hate to think what it's like for those with real issues. 

Hope everyone has a decent day.

I'm able to resize any photos over 5mb Nora (via the Windows editor) - but it simply won't upload anything over 2mb just now which is the real problem!

Hopefully the tech team can reinstate the external upload facility - that would be a great help.

I'm finding the photo uploading almost impossible too Nora 

Can't get anything above 2mb to upload. Most of my photos are between 3 and 6 mb. If we still had the option to use an external site to upload, it would be great.

Lovely pipit pic Sheps. I never manage to get near enough to them to get a photo unfortunately. They're beautiful little birds.  

I love your photos GD.  What a view across the sea 

I'm very lucky to be able to hillwalk regularly - and I never take our glorious hills for granted. They can be both awe inspiring and menacing in equal measure, especially in winter conditions. The drive along Loch Lomond and through to Glencoe is one of the finest there is anywhere and the peace at a summit, when you have a hill to yourself, is like nothing else.

Glad all's well Joyce - although a bit of a drama for you 

It certainly helps to have some bonny views too, and the weather to see them! I met a couple from Arran a few weeks ago on An Caisteal.  I put a few pix of the Bookil on the Camera thread

Welsh poppy GD. They seed around. Meconopsis cambrica. The blue one is an allium - don't know which one I'm afraid. 

I can't see a clematis....

That wisteria is so architectural isn't it?

Lovely pot of sempervivums Julie
