A strange Inverewe hybrid

When we were children visiting Inverewe Garden, my sisters and I created hybrid blooms by adding dropped petals to other plants in flower. I kept up this tradition today, as can be seen in my blip.

Inverewe Garden was our main destination du jour. We also called in at the Bridge Cottage café in Poolewe for coffee (or in my case the most amazing glass of hot chocolate). We stopped off at the Dundonnell Hotel on the way back to Ullapool to take a photograph for my sisters as a reminder of summer holidays there in 1976, 1977, 1978 and 1979.

This evening was a great success, especially for Mummy hazelh. The three of us first ate at the Ceilidh Place then took our seats in the The Venue across the road to hear Baile in concert. Mummy hazelh loved the pipe, drum and guitar music of this trio of 20(!) year olds. Afterwards we spoke to the boys in the band and Mummy hazelh told them about her Northumbrian pipes. We were so lucky to have booked accommodation in Ullapool this week when they have been playing here.

I have included an extra of Mummy hazelh enjoying the sunshine on our bedroom balcony this evening.
