Summer flowers

The garden is looking very pretty just now with lots of lovely plants flowering. We are having an Open Garden in July so I hope it will still look good then when most of these have gone!



Dont know the name of this daisy - very colourful 

Forget me not

Globe flowers

Went a lovely trip to try to catch some trout in a nice loch about 3 miles away. You have to climb the hill steeply from about a quarter of the way up the Kylerhea road and eventually get to 3 lovely lochs which have quite a lot of fish in them - if you can catch them!

Anyway we didnt get anything that night but got this real close up of a deer on he way home. He
just stood there and let us look at him and we were very close as you can see.

My little magnolia flowered this year. The Stellata magnolia has such a pretty flower. We have really enjoyed it.

We have been lucky to have great weather this week and with the help from our wwoofers Thea and Jacob we managed to get the polytunnel plastic on again. It has been off for the last year. Great to get it all planted out and usable again. Thank you Jacob and Thea!
