Is that near you David? Looks lovely 

To save your limp Lesley...a few from today in Glen Fruin

Across to Ben Lomond , Crianlarich hills on the far left


Looking east and a glimpse of Loch Lomond 


Just my fairy footprints on the summit approach 


The new ice encrusted fence on the top



Nice ice... 


Looking back up to the bealach on the way back

I did see a forecast which said snow showers down your way Dove - thought it was for tomorrow, but knowing my brain...

Have you got thermal kecks? 

It was a cracking day T'bird - very cold wind but alpine overhead 

Ice cubes are a lovely idea   Risotto -  same as Hosta for me

Got myself some veggie/carroty soup and a couple of ends of a seeded loaf  (toasted) Dove....but I'll make room for some bacon joint later thanks!

Can you give us a little more info ddoris - aspect, height of the building, what other planting he has and how much room round about the fence etc?

The quickest would be ivy - but that can be a bit invasive if you don't have the room,  and it gets heavy so not so handy if the fence is a bit wobbly! There's also an evergreen clematis - Armandii, but that gets big too.

No need for one today Steve - not even crampons! Snow wasn't too deep and it was nice and soft - fresh fall yesterday.  You'd have needed it on the higher hills though. I'll put some of the other pix on the camera thread later.

It's Glen Fruin, one of the Grahams - Beinn Chaorach -  southern end of Loch Lomond on the way to Garelochhead.  Not the bonniest hill - but you go for those views. Nice to have the only footprints on the hill too - apart from sheep and rabbits  

Is it too late for me to have lunch Dove? I've had the coffee from my flask, and a banana...

fidget - that made me laugh out loud - both your comments!    

Glad you're having a good time though 

I don't need Valentine day chocs or flowers - never bothered with it much either Wonks.....and I had this lot to make me happy  




A glorious little day - if a little chilly on the top

Hosta - that was a terrible joke.

My birds are paired up -  well, Dennis (robin), Denzel (blackbird) and Not Denzel (other blackbird) are anyway. Mrs Dennis appeared when I came home -  looking for more grub.  Greedy bandits...

Where to start???

I'm about fifteen minutes drive form Paisley, Dinah. In fact - I'll be driving through it on my way to Loch Lomond tomorrow to walk

Me too nut, although my current one is in a raised bed of garden soil and compost. They don't need much attention Darren
