Azaleas Doing Well —

The three azaleas I bought for our previous home on the Isle of Luing and planted in half-barrels where they did ok but nothing spectacular – exposed as they were to regular gales off the Atlantic – are now enjoying life transplanted direct into the soil in the shelter of our boundary hedge here in Comrie —-

This will be our third summer here and they appear to be thriving although we are having a constant battle with the villainous ground elder down that side of the garden 😠

Room and Kitchen —

Dunno what Loki was complaining about in the previous post —

Three years ago he was roughing it in his ‘des res’ log cabin on the Isle of Luing which even had a loft up above for Seamus — now they live in front of the fire like lords of the manor — 🙄

‘The Dive’

While on the subject of painting – this one is just back from the framer —

It’s Helen’s take on our memories of the Isle of Luing when the gannets followed the shoals of mackerel through Cuan Sound as we made our crossings on the small ferry – the Belnahua —

Her eye for the detail is amazing!

Honda CRF250 Rally at Ben Lora —

Must be at least four years – maybe five since I took this shot – she is still wearing her original exhaust —

Memory isn’t what it was and I even had to google Ben Lpra Cafe to see where I had been riding that day. Turns out I was passing through Benderloch just north of Connel Bridge – a few miles up the coast from Oban —

At least it was cleaner underfoot than here on the Isle of Luing – I do miss that wee bike —

No worries – my X-ADV 750 is back in the shed after a six week holiday. She is sitting there fully serviced and wearing a brand new set of Michelin Pilot Roads 4 – will be interesting to see how she goes on them —
