DD -  Hope the sun is shining for you and all goes well

Morning all. Very late for me but I had a long day yesterday  in Glen Lochay and didn't get home till after nine - picking up oldest fairy en route with perfect timing! She made me some strawberries and cream which was my dinner 

Took lots of pix of the sea of wild orchids - then managed to lose my camera somewhere on the way back down mountain  Almost stepped on  two or three little frogs as well and disturbed two herds of deer (or the same one twice) so lots to see  

LP - Verd lives in the sub tropical continent of Cornwall. Think we should make him live up here for a couple of years don't you think? 

Trying to catch up with all your doings but there's a lot! Hope DD has  a great day. She'll be exhausted

Lesley - that hat reminds me of the woman in the car park at Glencoe a few years back.She and hubby/partner had one of those mobile homes and she sat out on a seat preparing the sandwiches with one of those on. We were getting ready to walk but we were helpless with laughter watching her.  We couldn't understand why she didn't just do them in the van! 

Fidget - you're right. Never know how long we have. On the Scottish news yesterday it was reported that the daughter of a well known boxer (Jim Watt) had died suddenly at  38. It's the second child he's lost - his son died at 17 in an accident. How on earth do you deal with that? Counting my blessings.

Having my porridge and heading out soon. Hope everyone has a good day.

Yes - go out and pick them up and dispatch them. Salt water in a bucket is a favourite method or snipping them in half. It's the best solution for keeping the population in check although many people use beer traps.

These conniving, devious women Verd....can't trust 'em. I'm not like that of course ...

Right - grass is now cut and I'm off to collect daughter and get an early night. Walking tomorrow so will catch up with you all at some point

Have a lovely weekend in your gardens and doing whatever else  takes your fancy...ooh err missus  

Oh come on......

I remember when it was all just fields....

Good to see you KEF. Are you very brown? 

Midges don't really bother me. Lots of them in the glen I was in last weekend. Don't know whether I'm lucky or just don't smell very nice  

Rain went off so got some planting done and removed some slugs from the clematis and surrounding areas. Dinner's been consumed and may go and cut the grass if it's dry enough.

I take it you meant new glasses Lesley - not new eyes.....

Steady on Verd - you're already creating a ****storm on that climate thread....

Brambles are a real b*****. Biggest danger here in my garden is from feral children...

Thorn in my side....

That joke was worthy of you 

Summer shrubs that have nice follage in winter

I calls it as I sees it Verd 

Genuinely don't like it and it hates our climate and cold wet winters in the west of Scotland. It will always look poor. Better choices for part of the world   

Italy it ain't....

jeyes fluid

No! Hose them off Piphop or wipe them off with your hands. 

I really wouldn't want to eat them if they'd had Jeyes fluid on them. It's serious stuff 

Great for cleaning your bins and drains though
