Easter weekend


Daffs are over but trees with fresh leaves..

I know I'm late!  But last weekend we had some lovely weather here in Orkney and I made the most of it with some gardening, a walk on the beach and general "pottering" around... Here are a few photos of that weekend and.... my "helpers"!

A walk to the shore....


Tide is out! The old stone pier...




Blue sky.....


Gorgeous sky....


The old sail shed at Sandside....


Cat on a mission....


We all love beach time!


A wee lamb watching us walking home...


Closer look!


Meanwhile in the garden.... the old verbascum stems that I left for the birds and insects over the winter.  Time to pull them up now...


How is this helping Button?


The same border after I'd done some weeding helped by my garden fairy, Sue.


Dig border, plant five hens, feed and water sparingly....



Then Pecky Hen finds time for a nap in the sun. It's all right for some!


Another lovely weekend this weekend after a blustery and chilly few days during the week.  Time for more gardening!
