Tillypronie garden opening

Much preparation here for tomorrow's garden opening at Tillypronie: cakes being baked, signs gathered, paths raked, grass mown, borders weeded. The hedgerows are looking particularly lovely, filled with wild flowers that have blossomed in the last couple of days, and the roses are blooming, just in time (they've been later than usual this summer, after a rainy June).
Meanwhile, we went to the Lonach Gathering and Games today, to cheer the marchers and pipers and drummers and dancers and the terrifically strong men who toss cabers and hammers from one side of the ring to the other. This is the fourth time that I've watched the clansmen marching in, and they seem to become even more stirring each year.

Hope the open day was a roaring success, verification was tricky for this one.

Just to let you know that verification is getting very hard to copy as Lilac in May said . The letters are strange. Hope the opening was great

I don't know why the verification has become so difficult on blogger -- I can't read the letters at all!
