There have been no grandchildren this week, but did have a barbecue with some of the children and some really nice friends.
Really not a lot gets done at the weekends when I work till 7pm, but did admire the lilies in the garden, their colour is so vibrant, shame they dont last long.
I love exploring old graveyards, I love the history that they tell.
Went for a walk round the fishing pond, and found this hoop lying, and it looked to me like somebody with a mohican. So I just had to add some facial features and take a photograph.
A thistle may well be a weed but they are beautiful when they are in bloom. I love the focus of the prickly its on this with the head out of focus, sums me up nicely in this heatwave we are having - prickly.
The day we had the barbecue that nearly wasn't, you can read about it here should you wish to. A great evening with some good company. After we ate we went for a walk down the river.
Went looking for one of the local attractions that is signposted in the village. There is quite a bit of reference to it online, one such page is here
Willies mill is hundreds of years old, it was originally
Willie's Mill can be found on the outskirts of Tarbolton village, South Ayrshire. It was the home of Robert Burns' friend William Muir. The mill is mentioned in Burns' famed poem, 'Death and Doctor Hornbook'.
and not changed a great deal on the outside since then. Have taken pictures of all the arms of the signpost and will look for more of the local attractions in due course.
Not sure if I would get kept on at work today, so took this out of the bedroom window when I got up just after 6am. Was slightly overcast.
