I actually spent some time in the garden today - overcast but mild and calm and cut back 2 of my fuschia bushes - another 2 possibly 3 to go. These have been growing for probably near 29 years so the trunks are fairly thick - but they are old and getting a bit too tall. My washing keeps getting caught up in them. Now I have cut them down to about 2 feet from the ground. They will live up - there is plenty growth and I am going to try and keep them at this level.
Fairly busy at work just now and I am off south this week and next week. Aberdeen and Aviemore. Looking forward to Aviemore. Aberdeen is a day trip no time for shopping except at the airport.
Trying to look to do something for Victors 60th. We thought of London and the Queens Diamond Jubilee but very expensive for 4 nights. Might just do a couple of days in Aberdeen instead, and go for a sunny holiday later in the year.
There is a big crane at Peterson SBS Base just now and it is one of the largest that has been in Shetland. Photos below.
Crocuses, Iris,daffodils, Anemones and Snowdrops all blooming. Each day brings new flowers.
