patiently galavanting


after a bit of a wait finally the blue sky started to reflect in the pond


even got an angle to get a wee bit with the boat house


I love the wee pier shooting out from the island


and today an added bonus of a couple of kids adding reflections from the stepping stones

galavanting to Knockspoch pond


most of the pond in one shot and finalygot the lovely blue sky


but the wind got up so the water was a bit too choppy for the best reflections


instead of blue sky reflected it s green from the trees but the boat house still  has lovely reflections

Thursday, 13 July 2017


and this beauty is full of flowers just need a warm eveming for the scent to start to drift over the garden 


Jasmine was uprooted from mums garden and rescued by me and is sat in a shallow tub in the back where she has flowered more and more each year since arriving 4 years ago


as for this beauty I will need to remove the flowers soon as i need my thyme for cooking!


and these native geraniums are going daft as usual by the back door, they seem to flourish in the shade against the north wall
