Hello all. Had a good day although I only did one hill as I've not had a proper meal for a few days and I was a bit drained.  I've been slightly unwell over the last few days with a bug of some kind. Don't want to put anyone off their dinner, but let's say I was slightly worried about the lack of 'facilities' for several hours, if you get my drift.... 

Can't post any photos either - I can no longer get it to work.  It was chilly, cloudy and very windy 'up top' but the cloud was high and allowed some good views, unlike the last time I was there when there was horizontal rain and clag all round.  Watched a couple of little snow buntings for a while and also had a bum slide down one of the snow fields so that was fun  

How quick you were getting a posh frock Panda. Is it traditional or short and black?  

T'bird - I've just remembered there's a new programme on Wednesday night at 9pm called Highlands:Scotland's Wild Heart. Not sure if it's nationwide or just up here though. 

I should get something to eat now and catch up with all the goings on

I've only just seen this LP - big hugs from me and hope you and the family  can get some worthwhile help and support. It highlights again just how lucky we are if we're healthy. No amount of money can replace that. 

Love to you all x

I keep meaning to get some for my shady areas. They're great plant for our conditions up here.

Morning all/afties Pat if you're around 

Hope your knee's better today Linda 

BL - just remember to breathe at some point as well! We'll all be crossing fingers and toes for you that it goes well - which I'm sure it will. Garden's looking super 

I'll wait till I get home to cross everything though - off in a few mins for my walk so the crossed toes might be tricky....

Catch you all later. Have a good day, hope the weather is great for everyone today.

Night Dove - glad you've had a good day after your recent loss and everything necessary that goes with it. 

A few people very unhappy on Nora's newest thread, but hopefully things will settle, as you say.

I'm off to bed soon too - up early to walk.

Night all  

Sowing sweet peas?

Ideal time to sow direct Jordan. I've often done it at this time of year as it can be too cold, wet and miserable in April up here and they just sit there and sulk. Sowing now will give you flowers till a bit later in the year

Dirty b***ers....

I think the techies will sort out the problems DD. There were ongoing issues with the old format, but most people seemed to adapt.  Seems to be a few unnecessary changes when there were only some tweaks needed. Hopefully it's not all been down to money forcing the issue, ( which appears to be a popular belief) and they will find a balance. I'd hate to see this all go south  

Looking forward to my bed  

I couldn't cope with what you do DD - I'd find having all those people around and 'in my space' very trying!

Mine's about four/five inches just now Fred. It's only a couple of years old. They're pretty robust plants.

Is there no sign of life?

The hedge is broken in places but it will recover. It's more the woodwork that's suffered  

You'll be glad to get that off - don't go mad though!
