Thanks Dove. I'm well aware that not everyone would enjoy them as much as I enjoy getting out there and taking them  though 

Of course, getting there is a big part of it....

There is a path (of sorts)  under that, but the bracken is the same height as me...

This is the wildflower 

There's a little hoverfly on there too

Think I'd need my brolly to sit outside today for a meal Dove...and warm clothes!  

That would be interesting Hosta...

Plant ID

It will Cat! It really depends how much time and inclination you have to do that. The garden has to suit your needs, so if it doesn't, you can take it out and put in something that will be better. 

I'm aware that others will disagree with me, but our gardens are exactly that - ours. No point having plants that we don't have the time to care for, as they will end up neglected and not looking their best.

A change can be very exciting anyway - a nice challenge!

Joyce - that made me laugh re the bee!

The harebells are gorgeous just now. There were lots of them higher up too though - up to about 1500 feet anyway. They're pretty tough. That bit is quite sheltered - south facing, and a deep cleft running down the hill, which is also the ascent route. The whole hill is like that - clefts formed by lots of burns running down to the road. Views were great apart from the Arrochar hills when I got to the west top - the cloud was right down, so there was a nice straight line right across them cutting off the summits!  

Glad you enjoyed the walk with me Pat 

I have loads more pix but I don't want to bore everyone senseless. The sky was fantastic with the cloud and fog shifting through the glen. I took some of the wildflowers though, and there's one I don't recognise so I might put it on so that someone can ID it.

Morning Pat - and Joyce if you didn't get back to sleep... 

I woke at six, so decided to get up, have a cuppa and catch up with some of the stuff I've recorded.

Cool and wet here. Supposed to clear later but rain for the afternoon. Glad I got some things done after my walk yesterday.

I think you're having a third childhood Pat- nothing wrong with that  

I've just reported someone on that tv programme thread. His attitude is baffling. It's not gone unnoticed by others either. Oh well, I'll probably get banned now too  

Clematis Dying?

Yes -  EV should look something like this just now...


and that's only a little part of mine.

It's a fabulous clematis. If I could only pick one - it would be that

Frank/Dad - David was banned for being 'disruptive' apparently  He asked to have his account deleted, not realising it deletes every post he's made, which he's quite annoyed and upset about.

He had no intention of removing all his great advice.
