First report from the edge.

Well - here we have arrived at our new house on the Western Isles (Na h-Eileanan Siar.)  John happily surveys his new territory, while James is just glad to be out of the car.  The neighbouring sheep seems a bit indifferent, mind you, and the tray of lettuce plants look a bit travel sick.  Happily they have recovered, and we have had a very productive couple of weeks getting to know this house and land and beginning the transformation into what will become our home.

James especially loves his new playground.

It was such a special place to be at the solstice.  The druids were very much in evidence on Midsummer's Eve (photo taken around 10 pm)

But, you know - if this is the view from the kitchen sink, well it is going to be fairly special at any time.

Belated solstice blessings and love to all.

  6. Wow! Space to grow, in every senses of the word. It looks wonderful! Did you/Are you attempting to move your whole garden Jacqui? I've been wondering this for a while, what were the plans for all you had planted already.

    Uh, yeah. I'd say you have a pretty marvey view out the kitchen sink. I love the shaggy neighbor that came by to say, hello! LOL!
