When I was out in the back garden on Saturday afternoon, a little flash ofcolour caught my eye. Could this tiny narcissus be the herald of an early spring?
Then yesterday when we were out for our usual Sunday morning walk, we saw shoots of wild garlic .....
...... and a tiny winter aconite
Before our walk, we stopped at Scott's View ...... to admire the view!
On our walk to the William Wallace statue, we were entertained by a beautiful chocolate labrador, which ran tirelessly back and forward along the path. You can just see him in the middle of the photo, as he careered round the bend in the path
I had the long lens on the camera so that I could photograph some of the detail on the statue - I hadn't noticed this dragon-like creature on his helmet before
From the path, we could see another monument, away in the distance. This is the Waterloo Monument on Peneil Heugh
Of course you know what the next photo is ...... yes, after our exertions we had to go for a cuppa! As it was nearly lunchtime, as well as sharing a piece of lemon drizzle cake, we also shared a bacon and mushroom muffin
For the last couple of weeks, we have been using the main road rather than the back road to the house, as part of the back road was covered in muck* after the farmer cleaned out his cow byres. However, we came round that way yesterday so that we could check on the Jacob's lambs
I was busy in the studio on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons working on the circles for the quilt top. I discovered that I had miscalculated how many squares to cut to make the circles, and didn't have enough, however I have now made the rest and hope to get them sewn on tomorrow, and the final outer border added
I'll keep the rest of the postcards for tomorrow, and end with one of my 'arty' photos!
* that's muck as in manure, not mud!!
