Sunshine in Scotland!!!!!!


By pixi25


Hooray! We had sun today! It was really hot! Even had my bikini on lol, no there aren’t any shots of that! ;)
Actually in one of the pics you can see my head in the mirror on the shed. Had to share our lovely Scottish weather with you. Garden looks so much better with some sun. Nice skies too, that’s what I could see from where I was the pond on the lounger with a cool drink! Last pic is my daughter Sarah with a pillowcase over her head lol..her head was too hot! ;)

Looking great Pixi - love that pot over pond - is it cemented down ? Lovely plants and love the red robin, nice roses too :))) You have a lot of nice plants in there. Did your daughter know you taken that pic lol :))))

Lol Sixpence! I'm still here in one piece..I think..bit early to tell yet though.:)
Aw poor tired Lulu! :)
Thanks Paul. Do you mean the wee urn? Thats where the water comes out when I have it switched on and yes its all cemented in, I got it from a charity shop for 50p!
I took the cement along a bit and made a wee bed for the Thyme to grow. All takes thyme eh!
Yes Sarah knew I had taken the pic though she hasn't seen it and would kill me if she knew it was on here hahaha! But she will never know, she's not interested in gardens lol. :)))))))

Btw..I wondered about that you think its meant to have those darker spots on it? I wondered if it had some disease? Lol I like it like that though.

Hi Pixi, glad you have finally had some sunshine. Your garden looks lovely.

I think the spots on your roses are rain stains, white and pale colours seem to be susceptible to it.

It was sunny here at 4.30am until about half an hour ago (8.00am) but it's clouded over now. The local forecast here is for cloud and sunny spells.

Hope your good weather continues, We love Scotland particularly when the sun shines.

Enjoy your day. Grannyb

Lovely blog...lovely garden, Pixi!...and my, what a fab little pond!

Isn't it strange how a little bit of sun causes daughters all over to adopt the same behaviours! lol!!!

The garden's looking great in the sun. This is the time to enjoy the fruits of your labour. We're enjoying it here as well. My sister is an artist as well and we're all off to her place in France soon to enjoy more gorgeous weather hopefully.
