If you can resize your pix to under 2.5 mb they should load Chris. It's a pain but it's the only way just now  

Plenty of people here who will help you with your queries

David - that's terrific though! Shame you missed the actual 'event' but great to get those pix 

Beautiful butterfly pic BL. Do we get them in Britain at all - the south maybe ? 

Lovely frog Sheps. Kept having to avoid treading on loads of them recently in Glen Etive.

The Pentlands are only about an hour's drive from me, but Glen Lyon's a tad further - over two hours. Longer in winter when you can't use the short cut across the top. I saw those Merlins within fifteen minutes of leaving the car though. You wouldn't need any hill skills to see them - good landrover access track for the first few miles...  

It's real red squirrel country too. There are loads in that glen.

Thanks KEF. I knew you were busy with 'stuff' but wondered if you'd heard from doc or seen him. Hope he and Mrs doc are ok 

Glad you and Mr chicky had a good day chicky. Lovely pix - especially the leaves   You probably had a much nicer place to sit and take it all in than most people did 

Joyce - I could hardly bear to watch it. They both fought well but I thought he was going to give that third set away! 

Didn't help my pole and curtain hanging either - if it's all squint, it's his fault!  

PS - what's a vacuum cleaner?... 

Private hedge dying? How to save them

You're probably right Dave - throwing good money after bad giving them a feed!  

To be honest kapsv, you'd be better off taking the whole lot out and planting privet...it's much easier to manage and a lot nicer to look at!

My blue one flowered constantly last year till about September - possibly longer.

Perfect conditions for it - cool and damp

I have the following week off anyway Joyce. One of the other girls is off this week so it will be worse than hellish as she's currently doing the work of two people for no extra pay..... 

I hope there's a bit of an improvement...I have lots to be getting on with as well as getting some extra walking. 

Thought it was supposed to be a bit better down your way today and for the golf. 

Nae luck Hosta...

That's as may be gffinch, but legit companies pay for advertising their goods, unlike these kinds of freeloaders.

It's also why they appear at weekends when the mods aren't around to kick their a**es...

We have been polite haven't we Ceres...till now!

It's still a good time....

I'm inside and I've not got much less on than I had on the hill yesterday..and it was probably only around three or four degrees on the top  

At least I don't need the waterproof jacket and gloves though....

I could lend you a brush Clari....

I am putting up batten and curtain pole for bedroom curtains. Well I was until the screwdriver died. It's useless - battery doesn't hold a charge fro any time at all, and the spare one doesn't charge properly... 

I've put the washing out. Don't know if it'll dry....

Actually, I've always liked Diarmuid. He did what all designers of any kind do - pushed boundaries. 

Otherwise, none of us would ever do anything different, and gardens would become sterile, boring and identical. 

All Scottish gardens, for example,  would still be conifer laden, heather clad, rhododendron filled plots.

Creativity is a wonderful thing
