Thank you Donna for this lovely graphic.
Good Afternoon everyone, at last we have had some of your nice weather it has been very hot here the last three days. The picture are a mix and I will explain as I go. When we go to Perth we can come home two different ways either straight down the motorway or up Glenfarg the scenic route. As we passed one day last week Stuart said oh look at the Lion in the woods I missed it so this week he slowed down so I could see it too. Thought you too would like to see it. The village enters the Britain in Bloom and does very well and this is part of this years entry. The next pictures are of the poppies in the garden just now. I got the seed about 3 years ago from my daughter in law and put them away and forgot about them till last year when I bought my small greenhouse I think I told you about it last year. I went to get the seeds out of the drawer I had put them in and unfortunately they had all emptied out a the bottom of the drawer. I thought they that would be the end of things but I scooped them up and planted some of them and this is the result and I must say I was really chuffed about it. This morning we went out for our Saturday coffee. Yes I know its Friday but it will be very difficult to get anywhere tomorrow with T In the Park on. After our coffee I asked Stu to take me out the back roads to Balado where the Music Festival is being held so I could get some pictures to share with you but as you can see from my results we did not get near it at all. All the roads are closed around it and part of my village is closed off even to the residents, and boy did we have bother to get home we kept getting stopped by the police. I have never seen so many flack jackets and even armed police. I was surprised to hear that nobody down south has heard of this event as we are talking about something almost as big a Glastonbury. They have revised the numbers to over 150 thousand people will be visiting over the weekend. As I sit here the Helicopters are going to and fro and the traffic on the motorway is very busy. When we passed today thecamping site had just opened and the people were streaming in from all directions. All this today and the music does not start till tomorrow afternoon. Here is a list of some of the 170 bands that will appear .......Top of the bill Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Who, Franz Ferdinand, The Strokes, Paul Weller, Richard Ashcroft,and of course The Proclaimers etc etc. I think that me for today I thin Roger has just about finished with Bkorkman and I want to watch Nadal think that should be a great match. Hope the rain stays away. Have you noticed that Monty is not on till 10pm tonight that's awful late for us old gardeners. Love
Sara made this for me.
