Loads of changing colour on the trees en route today but no chance to take any pix of them.

This was the view from about 2,000 feet up on Beinn an Lochain, near the Rest and be Thankful, taken on the way back down when the skies cleared a bit. 

The 'long and winding road'  back over the end of the ridge, and a hazy view down Glen Kinglas :




and the view across to the Arrochar hills - Beinn Ime (with it's smaller outlier on the left) and The Cobbler with the smaller Beinn Luibhean centre stage at the front, and Ben Lomond in the distance on the right :

Hosta and Verd have just mentioned it. Way too cloudy here to see anything

Are you going to get a pic Verd?

Too cloudy here Hosta 

Don't be such a lightweight - get a coat on 

Had a  toastie for dinner with home grown tomatoes - they were delightful. I've eaten most of them.. 

Just saw the end of One Man and his Dug on Countryfile....'.Coom by'....

I thought of that Hosta but no flowers or berries which Steve wanted if possible.

It's Constance. Faces slightly north west and gets some shade from midday sun because it's tucked in by my gate and back fence. It was very tangled and bundled round a cane when I bought it, so I just had to do the best I could at the time, but it could do with hacking back so that I could spread the stems better. I have another clematis beside it though, which is in full flower, so a bit tricky! Had only been in about 18 months when that pic was taken.

Moving plants

Being next to a Rhodie might be the issue with the one that's not doing well, Angela.

I'd move that somewhere else to give it some room. 

Pittosporum are lovely looking plants though
