I took lots of photos of flowers in Kintyre, so today I’ll show you a few of those. First a hebe, then a hydrangea. Try as we might we just can’t seem to grow these in Peebles, but over here there were pink ones, and blue ones, all looking fantastic.
The wild roses were almost over and the rosehips growing large and red, but I found one rose still in flower. What a scent!
The bunch of wild flowers was pretty too. There were so many different flowers, but I thought they’d look nice in a bunch, in a photo, and I gave them to Hilary on one of my visits.
…when the midges were out.
It was the first time we’d really been bothered by them!
Ann had got all her threads in and had amassed a decent amount of pins… as had I, but at last I was able to take some of the earlier ones out to see what I had made so far. Jenny had only been able to come down from Tarbert for two or three days, and Judith, from Campbeltown had left early, so I didn’t get photos of their work.
So, nearing the end of the holiday, I had a final walk on the beach, and waited a while for this shotof the wave breaking over the rock! The view across the rocks and boulders to A’Chleit (below) was as pretty as ever, and to take it I actually got my feet in the water!
Better to enlarge these, I think.
So Saturday morning saw us all bidding farewell and heading off in our various directions. I had a cup of tea with Neil and Hilary before taking a wander round Tarbert . Bowmore, Neil’s labrador, decided to adopt my foot and use it as a pillow! He’s a handsome fellow!
I have one or two more pictures I took on the way home, but they can wait for my next post! Hope I haven’t gone OTT with photos today!
Talk again soon.
