Maybe I should do the same. My son has the bank holiday in London today and the weather is beautiful. Doesn't it make you mad, Karen.

It does Linda. But then I love Scotland for so many reasons. Theres only one bad thing...the weather. I think we just need to accept it.

Sorry to gloat, it's been a glorious day here, just right for going up the step ladder to pick pears.

I love late summer weather. I can't describe how beautiful my garden is right now. It's teaming with butterflies, bees, birds and everything else. Sunny blue and clear,

It's a good thing you love Scotland, Karen, as I would be miserable - I find my mood is greatly affected by lack of sunshine.

Mine too GF. Its a challenge for me. But whenever I go South I am always so happy when we cross the border back in to Scotland. I think its the open spaces, lack of sprawling urbanisation and most of all the green hills. I think if we ever moved south it would need to be somewhere very rural like Shropshire where there is still loads of space...and hills! :) But we do get plenty of sunshine here. Believe it or not, we get more sunshine here than Greenwich gets. Sadly, most of it seems to come in autumn, winter and spring! Lol!

Well, 3/4 seasons of sunshine is pretty good.

It is...we really have nothing to complain about...but it doesn't seem to stop me! Lol
