Flora.

This is a lovely 'tunnel' of trees, just along the road, leading to the churches. Also leading to the entrance to Cairness House, and our friends, 'Old Manse'.


You may have to click on this picture to enlarge it and see the signs! These are in a wood nearby.



Gorse.


And Broom.


All growing in abundance roond and aboot.


Now comes the black part of the day. After much heart searching and discussions we have let Phoebe, our parrot, go to a new home. With daughters scattered, one with our grandson and another on the way, our third daughter also to present us with another grandchild this year, we will be travelling. Cats can be left with someone to come in and feed them. But parrots do not appreciate being left on their own for any length of time. She has gone to someone who already owns an Amazon Parrot so is not someone who is unaware of how demanding they can be and therefore will not get fed up after a while, which was my main concern. Phoebe took to her immediately. So she has gone. I feel as if I have given away a child.
