 These two snowy photos were taken in our garden at the beginning of May. This is the most snow we have had here for years but it did not last long and looked very pretty.

These two photos were taken two weeks later in the middle of May when all the fruit trees have come into blossom and the sun is shining.

Breakish was the hottest place in Scotland last week at 26 degrees!

Autumn Fruits

Just picking the last of the grapes in the tunnel and pruning the vines for next year. Got a good crop of sweet grapes this year.

Also sorting out the strawberry plants and picking the last of the perpetual strawberries which are so good as they give two crops each summer.

It has been such a strange summer for the garden. We are having lovely weather at last - but it is September - the plants are confused as it was so wet in July and August.
I have autumn primroses and gentians out along with foxgloves - seems very odd.
They look lovely no matter what month it is.

Took this photo on the way to Breakish from Portree. Such a nice cloud pattern.

I am pleased with this window box this year. It has a good variety of colours and has lasted well. I grew the petunias myself from bought seed and the nasturtiums are from seed I saved last year.

I love also the colour of the agapanthus flowers - they are at their best just now.
