Hello Forkers . November 2017

There you go Obs

He's cute 

Got a few things done outside today in between the heavy showers. Mainly tidying. Got a bit too cold though,. Brisk wind, and never got above 6 degrees. Nice to see a bit of sun though.

Love Christmas pud, but with cream. Don't make them any more, ust buy a couple of mini ones for me and eldest. 

Better get to bed. Up early to take daughter to work, and then see where I'm walking.

Which varieties are they? 

I don't really do anything to mine, but the deciduous ones get the old foliage removed in late winter/early spring once the new growth starts to come through. Evergreen ones just get any dead foliage removed in spring to rejuvenate them. I occasionally prune those right back if I divide them or want to move them.

Slugs and snails would have been my guess too, unless the seeds themselves have gone - then it's mice.

Molluscs love the soft new growth

Morning all/afties Pat. Whata beautiful bird. Colours are stunning.

Same here LP, wet overnight, but it's supposed to dry up and be reasonable later. The sun is peeking through the clouds now  

Hugs and fairy dust to everyone who needs it. I know how lucky I am.

Need more tea while I have a look around here...

Hope it does the trick Pauline, and you get a good result.   You can eat our share too  

I like chicken or rabbit with prunes. I remember a recipe vaguely which had it in a mustard sauce and it was beautiful.

Yeh - it's a slightly longer walk than G.Bheinn, so it may have to wait. My knees were sore despite the braces last week, so it's a bit worrying. Doing something a bit smaller this weekend, and crossing my fingers.

Yes - the Pap, and the 2 Corbetts - Garbh Bheinn, on the left (foreground) and  Mam na Guallain, on the right. I've still to do that one, but Garbh Bheinn was a brilliant walk  

The Lochs series was nice, wasn't it?

That last photo is beautiful scroggin. Mist and fog make for some really atmospheric shots don't they?  Stunning. The reflections in the water are lovely.

You can have too much of that blue sky and sunshine malarkey....

I got a similar shot last year (October 2nd) on that S.E.Mor outing, Joyce.  It was an astonishingly beautiful day, with a touch of frost, and the earlier mist en route had all cleared. One of the best days on a hill I've ever had  

You gain height so quickly through the woodland, and you start getting the views early on. 

I think everyone takes a pic at around that point. There's a little spur which is really well worn - it's a great viewpoint. There was a couple there just taking photos when I was on the way down last Sunday. The Mamores are a great set of hills - remote, steep and tough a lot of the time, but highly rewarding.

Hills might look a bit different this weekend - lots of snow coming in on both days. Sunday's looking better to walk though.
