Morning all.

Very sad chicky - especially so young. Endless deaths on the Loch Lomond road with bikes. Hope chicklet is alright. Youngest fairy had just started school when one of the other Primary 1 teachers died from a heart attack in the classroom. You can't plan for these things but fortunately it's rare.

Work for me today so a quick look round before I go. Hope everyone has a good, and safe,  day.

Hugs to Pa Dove - gentle ones as Panda says 

Cup of tea and one of oldest fairylet's freshly made blueberry flapjacks consumed so I'm  full. Small fairylet collected, washing put on the timer for the morning and dishes washed.

I'm off to lie down - was out after tea cutting grass edges and weeding - very satisfying chopping slugs with the lawn edgers too....

Night all

It's Daniel Deronda ighten - but it's not as blue as that - it's quite purpley. The bluey purples all tend to come out very blue on my camera. Someone techie will probably know why!

The white Lychnis are lovely. I have quite a few whites Lesley - brilliant for shady areas especially if you get some acid greens and variegated foliage in with them. A favourite of mine is the white broom (Cytisus praecox Album) - I used to have one at the front gate in a previous garden and it was lovely at dusk.

philippa - it's only taken me thirty years.....

I can lose stuff going from the house to the shed. I've lost countless pairs of seccies. That's why I never buy expensive ones

Thanks doc. I took a pic and unfortunately it looks quite white in that but it's definitely pink 'in the flesh' - and it taunts me every time I go out the back door ! Oh well. If anyone want two of them let me know ...

John - I daren't - it'll forget to go off! 

Off to drop daughter off to do her 6th year 'duty' at school. Back later.
