Gorgeous Papi Jo. You look as if you've had some good weather fro plants to flourish. Very lush and green.

No smilies working - so 'smiley face'  for all of those!

Morning all who are up/afties Pat 

Off to walk in twenty minutes as it's ok but rain coming in the afternoon so will make the best of the morning's dry conditions.

The news is so depressing Pat. I tried to avoid it last night after seeing it online earlier. Watched the athletics instead which was quite uplifting, and badly needed.

Love the Rev Richard Dove. He always makes me laugh when I see or hear him    

Hope you're not too sore today BM, after all your hacking and slashing. My shoulder's a bit painful after tackling the giant pallet - someone didn't want that falling apart ! 

Will catch you all later, unless it stays dry and I get out to cut the grass instead.

Have a good day everyone

Dave hadn't been able to post from his phone either Tetley, among other issues....

It all seems very inconsistent unfortunately

If you didn't plant the lighter one it'll have seeded in from somewhere. It'll be the 'common' one that grows anywhere!  

Your darker one is very nice - looks a bit like mine, which are Black Knight, planted a couple of years ago once I'd created a border along my new boundary fence.

Those are lovely Richard. 

Sadly,  Bill was very unwell, and stopped posting here a while ago....

T'bird - I meant to let you know that there was an episode of The Adventure Show on the other night. Cameron McNeish was walking east to west from Aberdeen, doing the most easterly Munro (Mount Keen) and finishing with the most westerly on the mainland( Ladhar Bheinn). Great photography. It was probably only on up here, but you might be able to download. 

I know we moan about the rain here, but that watering lark would drive me nuts! I had to water a lot during the dry spring, and a few plants got forgotten about because it's just  not something I normally have to do at that time of year

What a stunning pic steephill  

I remember being in Glen Etive many years ago, and while crossing a boggy bit of the lower slopes of the hill I was doing, a huge cloud of them flew up. It was a beautiful experience  

Sadly, no photos

I'll work it off tomorrow - maybe should take the long route back down the hill..

and run a bit of it....

Your shrub's a Berberis GD. They flower in spring - small yellowy/orangey flowers with a nice scent
