In my head, I expected to see the plant spring in 2 weeks, so by that time I started to look for it. A green plant was growing on the spot, so I presumed that must be it. I was so excited. A few days later, a few other similar plants started to...

But then life is like that. As Robert Burns, one of Scotland’s best known poets wrote in his poem ‘To a Mouse’ in 1785: “The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / Gang aft a-gley.” In other words no matter how carefully a project is planned, something...
Lots of tulips flowering
Not being expert gardeners, things tend to get a bit overgrown at times and I noticed that in our local park, all the clumps of grass had been trimmed back in early spring ready for new growth. In our garden, however, last year’s feathery seed heads...

It was so interesting to see some of the special effects and discover how many thousands of crystals and sequins are used to embellish the clothes. It made me appreciate the incredible hard work of designers and costume staff-all slaving away behind...

We have four clematis plants growing in the garden, each a different variety and each in a different place. One attribute they share is that they are all enthusiastic climbers. In their haste to reach the sun they will twine their delicate tendrils...
Clematis
I did my best to follow the signs but still had the disconcerting experience of seeing the motorway for Edinburgh disappear in another direction. I had no option but to stay on the one I had inadvertently joined and wait to see where it was headed...
A motorway with lots of lane and arrows pointing in different dicrections
