Good Afternoon and welcome to my musings today.It seems a long time since I wrote in my journal so I will try to bring you up to date with all the happenings in our busy lives lol.
The weather has been absolutely glorious this week and we have tried to make the most of it, it might be all we get you never know do you?.
We have been working and sitting in the garden and have been out and about too.
On Monday we took a trip to Glendoick Gardens just outside of Perth. They are specialist in growing and breeding new varitities of Rhodidenron and are very famous for this you may have seen them in your local garden centre. I took load of pictures and have posted some of them for you to see.
After spending the morning wandering around the gardens we carried on to Dundee and visited Dundee Botanical Gardens. After some lunch we wandered round there as well with all the wandering we was very tired when we got home walking slowly is worse than a good brisk walk.
Dundee gardens were very green with not much in flower but the trees were lovely as you can see. The is word that we may be loosing the gardens as the University no longer want them so there is a bit of a stuchy just now about what will happen we will just have to wait and see and hope something good comes out of this.
Have managed at last to get rid of the chest infection with the help of the Doctor so am pleased about that but the bad news is Stuart has Shingles. This is the second time for him this time they are on left side just on his ribcage the last time it was his leg. The strange thing is this time he does not have the rash so it took two visits to the Doctors for him to know what was wrong. He says he is not too bad this time nothing like he was last time so we have just got our fingers crossed as we go on holiday next Saturday.
Have finished my book again going great just now with all the sitting in the garden I get through more books I just love sitting reading in the sunshine with my straw hat on of course. Not sure yet what to start next as I have bought 'The DevilWears Prada ' for my holiday reading I usually don't read too much when we are away birding as my eyes are usually tired by the time I fall into bed.
I think that's about it for today so I will wish you bye for now and hope you have a pleasant weekend.
