Had to go out - my brain was hurting 

Jam first - but I don't really like the jam and cream thing on a scone - prefer real butter and jam  

Fruit or plain?  Fruit for me every time  

Are you all giddy Topbird?

My head's going to explode now 

I'd call the oaty ones flapjacks 1of7.

Maybe we should ask Paul Hollywood or Mary Berry 


hydrangea 'Annabelle DEAD????

I'm inclined to agree. A biggish shrub will often wilt a bit when planted out - no matter what type or what  the conditions are. The roots are used to being comfy in their pot and it's a bit of a shock. It's also very near the ivy which will be taking a lot of moisture from the ground. It's hard to overwater Hydrangeas Rich

Lesley - your OH's little joke - very good 

I better keep one or two for older fairy as she's at work just now and will be miffed if young fairy eats them all. I won't touch them now of course....

Steady rain here. Good for the plants - the right kind of rain

Are you wearing a kilt then?

Or just a sporran perhaps

I think you're both right. The batter's 'dropped' so I think that's where that term comes from. The ingredients are pretty much the same as a scone - just different quantities. My dad was English and I think he called them that, while mum, being a Scot, called them pancakes. They've always been (Scotch) pancakes to me.

What is this found in the garden this morning

It's not rational Hosta,is it?  I think it's because they're noisy which flutterbies aren't.

I find I'm not worried at all nut.  Lots of the little butterflies I see when hillwalking are predominantly brown, yet I watch them happily. If I see a moth, I now say to myself - 'look at that little brown butterfly' and then it's no problem.It really makes no sense to be frightened by moths.

I think we've pushed this now - we'll get removed and given detention if we go on much longer
