WELCOME!


Welcome to my blog. Thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll stay and enjoy reading about where I've been and what I've been doing!

I don't mean this to be a replacement for personal emails, but it gives me the chance to put up photos and my scrapbook layouts, so I don't block up your in-boxes, or have to send the same photos and stories to everyone separately!
Thanks, and welcome, to the followers of my blog. I'm very honoured that you enjoy it. Drop me some comments from time to time! It's good to hear what you think about the posts. Come back again soon.

Thanks also to Mary of Mary's Mixes for doing all the work on the blog's heading. You are great, Mary!

Tweeddale Photography Group’s First Exhibition

The photography group was only started about last Spring, and has just held its first exhibition in the Eastgate Theatre Studio, Peebles.  There was quite a variety of styles and subjects, birds, animals, travel, local….. I just thought this post could show off some of my favourites.  I have to include my own of course! a_blue_view_margaret_jamie_0031

Loch Coruisk, Skye, by Ruth (right)  Do you remember on my visit to Skye last year I went on the boat trip and was so disappointed when we weren’t allowed to land?  Well, Loch Coruisk (above) was what I had expected to see that day!   That view, maybe taken from a bit to the right, including that rock, was on the wall at home all my life, and it was my ambition to see it for real.  I have been there, but didn’t know where the rock was in relation to the path!  I do now, so I’ll make certain I get there next time!verteuil_evelyn_inglis

There were lots more but these were my favourites.  Barbara’s robin was one of three photos she had of him, all framed up together. I love robins!   I have tried to grow mecanopses (mecanopsises?) in my garden, but have never had any success with them.  I suspect this may have been taken at Dawyck Gardens where they have swathes of them.  They are so beautiful!

You should be able to see more of the groups photos on flickr here. and on wordpress here  Quite a talented bunch!

Talk again soon.

I Love these pictures, Evee, especially the first one of yours. It looks like a painting! You certainly have a talent!
