A Few Warm Weather Days
We have had some lovely warm weather the past few days, Friday, after working in the morning, I got the cushion for my steamer chair out from under the bed and sunbathed for a while. The cats came to join me but it soon got too hot for them so they laid underneath me. A lovely lazy afternoon.
Saturday morning it was a bit cloudier but still quite warm so we went out for a while. This is Bonar Bridge, a village 10 miles away from us and the villagers recently celebrated this bridge which was 40 years old last weekend. We stopped in the car park by the water and got out to look at these boulders laid out in a circle.
A little place to have a picnic when the Grandkids come up I think.
Underneath the gorse bushes there was this pretty little plant
I have been repotting things and planting more veg seeds, now the metal bucket in the pic above is empty I need to find something else to go in it.
We were invited to a barbecue last night and watched the sun setting behind the hills from my friends summerhouse. A few midges were about and they made a bit of a meal out of me! I woke this morning with a swollen eyelid from a bite and very itchy arms.
After church today I came home to find a red legged partridge on the garden wall! They don't usually come up this way so we are going to tell our ranger friend. We couldn't get a decent photo of it before it flew off but it's quite a big bird and has very distinct markings.
