Morning all,

One good thing about living up here is we wont be bothered with the Olympics, London will be a nightmare. We can just watch it on tv

Geoff Ive always lived in this area and as far back as time my family has too, we've not travellers until now, my mam and dad now live in France in the South West its an amazing area great growing weather they are big on gardening they pretty well live off the garden all year round having pickled bottled and jar'd everything in site.

We had another nice day yesterday and the bbc weather site is saying dry here till Friday. My OH bought me a weather station for my birthday it has a wee man on it that dresses according to the weather from a raincoat and umbrella to swimming trunks we've named him 'Wee Willie' so Wee Willie has no raincoat on at the moment...

Ive been thinking of my garden Im thinking although I love lupins and they did look well this year they are now pretty well over and straggly my thoughts are for either sweet william which wont get so tall or a small shrub what do you suggest

I'm away to work soon.

Thats visitors away it was a pleasant afternoon.They liked my garden I'd say, as much as like art we all have different ideas. My garden has neat grass and edges and very full borders for two reasons I buy too many plants and it saves me weeding.

Im very lucky Geoff we live in a lovely area even if we have to put up with midges from June to October

Hope your getting peace now Kate

The weather is to improve next week so it will be ideal for the midges lovely damp ground and warmer ...

We were in our last house but we've moved to the village now its easier for us all I just worried about my OH driving the quiet glen roads in winter. They dont clear the roads the same now with cut backs. Its only a wee village we have a shop and a church thats it. I wouldnt live anywhere else its as I like it. We're 15miles from Inverness

Keeping Cats off of Garden - Tried and Tested Ideas only please

I use wooden kebab skewers you can buy a pack of 100 for less than a £1. Cats don't like obstacles so I put in lots of these between the veg it actually did work for me. Cats are also creatures of habit so if you can break there habit they will move on. We have 12 cats around our neighbourhood and haven't had one in for ages.

Yes Geoff we're pretty far north it can get pretty wild here in the winter my boys loved the days off from school in the winter with the roads closed. Im waiting for visitors to look round my wee garden Ive been beavering around this last two days but when they walk round I'll make out its always as tidy Its not too bad here today its actually been dry all day and 20c. It will be tea and shortbread in the summerhouse I think
