Morning all/ aftoies Pat if you're about  

Looks like a good day chicky - apart from cheesy chips....

Was that a touch of the 'Titanics' going on? 

Seems everyone had a good day yesterday on their various outings 

Off work but up to take children to work...what's that about!  At least I can come home and relax and footle in the garden if it dries up. If not...I may be on here avoiding doing internal work...

That's really lovely Vic - never seen that before. Would that be hardy up here?

Love the astrantia too. Considering one of the dark ones for one of my borders.

Those roscoeas are absolutely beautiful fidget

Some terrific sets of pix on here

Some photos from today's jaunt up in Glenshee. Ben Gulabin - a smallish hill at 2,644 feet, but with a high start so very easy. 

Jogging sheep 

moody sky

Managed to catch one of the buzzards as he wheeled around above the hills 

Pano of the Glenshee hills on the other side of the road

The Bheinn a Ghlo hills, shrouded in cloud,  to the west of the summit

Glas Tulaichean, across the other side of Gleann Taitneach, with it's steep north eastern corrie

The seat for my snack  

The summit in the background

Mount Blair to the south east

Heading back from the east top, with the Munro - The Cairnwell on the right. It's one of the hills used for skiing in winter

The weather approaching out of the north west

Managed to sneak up on the deer..


They scarpered - but stopped long enough to let me get another pic

If it was short of water in spring, that can lead to loss of foliageduring summer and early autumn - earlier than usual.  

As Ladybird has said, it could do with a bit of tidying round the base though. That will make it easier to feed and water.

Overfeeding can often mean foliage at the expense of flowers. They tend to like quite poor conditions, so if you have rich soil,  that may be a reason.

Did you deadhead it E'sMum? They normally set seed quite rapidly after flowering - as most of us discover if we don't get the scissors out sharpish  

The roots are ridiculously brutal aren't they bob? Even on the teeny tiniest scrap of foliage

Gosh - that's a big shift obelixx! I didn't realise you were moving from Belgium - apologies if you've said that before. As Hosta says - hopefully the climate will be a bit kinder for you  

I'm off for a shower too lily  - had a cuppa already - and some oatcakes and cheese. Think I'd better wring out my trousers and put them in the wash first....
