Its still blowing a gale - cold & raining but its the Tall Ships

We are having a brilliant time at the Tall Ships.  Weather is terrible but layers of clothing and a spirit or two as well as a Shetland hardiness to get on with it!.

What a spectacle the Tall Ships are - meeting new and old friends, listening to great music, ikki (thats Snowy walking over the laptop), food and drink!.   My legs and feet are aching but what the heck - all next week to rest and recuperate.

Snowy in the wars again and at the vet yesterday!  Still a bit sore today, but this time on his territory.  He was also in a fight on Wednesday so he has not had a good week.   Still manages to waken one of us at 7 am to get fed.  He is a man of habit and cant wait or even think of a long lie!

Note no gardening been done - not been weather - just rescuing the pots and deadheading flowers.  

Its also a sad time for everyone due to the tragedy in Norway.   Our hearts go out to all those familes that have been affected by the recent events in Oslo.

Some photos!
