Family hug in the sun

The piggy family found a wee spot in the sun to catch those rays albeit briefly. A contented group indeed. The little piglets are on the top and so rotund as to resemble small hairy orange balloons on legs. The response on Facebook to this picture ranges from 'ahhhhh' to ' yummmmmmy'bb

Blue sky day

Another stunning walk today in nearby Furnace along the Leicann walk, half the Leicann to be precise as my taxi driving skills were needed post school and we were short on time. The day was glorious enhanced rather than marred by one short snow shower mid morning.
As Bob, the animal feed man remarked today "one nice day and the Argyll resident instantly forgets the preceding forty rainy ones"... And a very nice day it was too.

Spring cometh..

Or seems to be just around the corner anyway. Slower to approach Argyll than in England it is more precious when it does spread its fingers into the hills and glens. This week we said goodbye to the faithful but thirsty Peugeot and hello to the dinky, more economical Nissan Note. I am Easily pleased as displayed by my setting of the " limit" button to try to get even more mpg. So far I am up to 56 which after 39mpg is very gratifying. Holly walking is continuing space until she is literally up to spend and running. I am an off the track walker and like to make my own trails. This tree took my fancy just before I fell in a large hidden pool......
