Making my bed

I've dug a flower bed! My first!  And friends have been here and moved and straightened and tidied the wood pile.
Of course it's far too tidy to use now!
The flower bed doesn't look very lush and full to bursting yet - but it will, one day, at least that's the plan
Our visitors also tidied up round the outside of the house. The plan is to get the ground work done and build a garage  - we're just revving up for that!
It does look loads tidier. I don't know why we didn't get it done before, there just always seems something else to do
The garden still has it's wild side, where the beds are decidedly unmade!
And when I look at the bigger picture I feel completely flummoxed - in terms of gardening at least!
So for the time being I shall concentrate all my efforts on this neat and tidy well made little flower bed!

The Tall Ships

The Tall Ships have been in  Ullapool. They are on their way up to Lerwick to take part in the tall ships races. The second leg from Lerwick to Stavanger in Norway starts next week. About fifteen ships sailed in. They certainly looked beautiful against the backdrop of lochbroom, and for the most part the weather stayed kind.
Ullapool was full to bursting.
an talla solais, the art centre in Ullapool had an exhibition of small ships to celebrate
 the red dot means they have been sold. We should have got there sooner, many of them were excellent.
small squares made of marine plywood, exquisitely painted 
Even when the rain fell  the tall ships looked very beautiful and graceful
ship shape order
and much scrubbing and cleaning to be done, making the ships ready
It was an exciting and lively weekend
and Ullapool rose to the occasion in splendid fashion

Bee happy

Just like this little bee I got my head down and got stuck in
 and today I've made a wreath using hazel twigs from the trees in the garden 
I've had a brilliant day, not doing much, but beeing feeling very busy

just like these bees...!
