Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

Posted: 01/01/2017 at 07:54

Morning all, all those to come, and afties Pat 

Hope everyone is up and ready to start the new year as opposed to celebrating New Year... 

well, maybe not...

I had a relatively undisturbed sleep so I'm off soon to walk. Sky is now clear so it promises to be a good day for views.

I did my flower count yesterday so hope everyone joins in and records theirs

Have a good day everyone - whatever it brings

Should have gone to Specsavers obelixx...

Ben/Beinn - they both mean hill basically 

Hope you enoy your adventures in your new home. Next year will be very exciting for you.

I think Ben Donich might be in the way Joyce. You certainly get a good view from there. I will hopefully get clear enough views and get some pix.

The Corbett adjoining Beinn Ime, Joyce - Beinn Luibhean. It's at the Rest and be Thankful, across the road from one of my favourite hills - Beinn an Lochain.

The one which regularly deposits itself on the road when there's heavy rain  

Have a great 2017 too Wonks. A lovely new start for you

New Year's Day 2017 Flower Count

Posted: 31/12/2016 at 17:46

I've done mine - it was short and sweet 

Hellebore (niger)

Hellebore 'Blue Lady' - which flowers constantly

Mahonia 'Winter Sun'

Native primulas


and not quite a flower, or even a partridge in a pear tree, but a dunnock in a bird bath, which made me smile

Happy counting tomorrow

Bye Dove - see you next year xxx  

Lesley - I like the sound of Iran brut....

I work with someone who was addicted to it. It's a running joke that she'll be buried in a blue and orange coffin. When she had stopped drinking it she was talking one day and I said to her - do you know that you talk exactly like an alcoholic? Every phrase she used was the same as any junkie coming off a fix. She still says 'that's x amount of months I've been off it'  It's dreadful stuff! 

I shall be partaking of tea flavoured drinks and going to bed at the normal time, as is my usual habit. Walking tomorrow - so it will be the first walk of the new year Lesley 

Do you think the Pandas will be full of eucalyptus and having a bit of jigging by now? Or is it a bit early yet. Hope they've had a good day  

ID please

Looks the most likely Berghill  

I don't think that pine cone's going to grow though Mark...or those berries...

Good to see you B'man. I'll echo Dove's sentiment and wish you a better, happier 2017, and the good health to enjoy it.

Don't have too much of that malt - or shortbread - you've a walk to do... 

Hopefully our lums will be reeking for a few more years
