You could also save the particular page you want on your own laptop/computer facility ie  'favourites' or 'bookmarks',  depending on what you use. I do it with route reports on the walking site I use, and here I kept the one with obelixx's ginger cake recipe

Morning all/afties Pat - glad you're getting some respite from the heat. We've had the same only it's from the rain! It's due back today though. 

I see we have some furniture spam and also beds or summat. How thoughtful of them to provide a full service eh? 

Welcome home the fidgets - seems as if you've been away for months  

Clari - do you have a dog? I wasn't sure...... 

Think my blackies have a nest across the road beside the little bungalow that has loads of good nesting cover Dove. They're all very busy. Nice to have greenfinches - they seem to be in real decline here.

My pleasure lily  

Been sorting them into a folder ( promised myself I'd do it each time I take new pix)

Liked this one of Ben Lomond - with a moody sky and  the two Munros at Strathearn just showing on her left 


and she's here on the right hand side of this panorama 




Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Yvie - I'd say Rebecca's a little brighter than Niobe - if that's any help    

The reds fade quite a bit in the sun so it can look different depending on where you have it. My Niobe is facing east mainly and is sheltered from most of the mid day sun. It keeps it's colour really well. Rebecca is a bigger flower than Niobe too.

Saw loads on the verges yesterday on my way to walk. Loverly indeed!

You've had a productive day then chicky  

I got quite a bit done too. Bone meal tickled in and a layer of muck on top in the beds that weren't frozen. Planted a hellebore and tied in clematis shoots. Lifted two carexes which need new homes now.  

Touch up painting only - where plants tend to rub against the wood and also where the beds get a battering from the rain. An extra coat on one end of the shed too. Forth bridge syndrome  

Nice lunch BL - just the thing on a chilly day. 

Didn't fancy the Night Manager. Is it good though GWRS? Anyone watching Trapped - Icelandic Scandi drama?

I don't think a bottle of wine on Dove's neck will help Clari.....oh... I see what you mean  

You're caught between a rock and a hard place there - you're trying to do your job well but you're being royally humped. There - I've said it. Hope you find a better employer who appreciates all the hard work you do Clari. You're too good for that place, and they rely on the fact that you love it all and want it to be successful.  

Got lots done outside too T'bird - no grass cutting though. Will leave that for a while. Ground's solid anyway in the shade, and soggy where it's not 

When will people learn the difference...
