I'm Sorry About The Storms

However just to cheer those of you languishing in inclement conditions it's 2100 hrs on Lewis and this is my view:


It's a shame about the haar out in The Minch but that will doubtless burn off in the morning.

  1. Brilliant here in the middle east of Scotland. Don't tell folk they will all want to flit. Last thing we need is a load of DeDas and Scousers invading paradise.

    1. Heaven forbid we should allow Scousers in, Adrian. Almost as bad as Yorkshire folk.

    2. DeeDaas are Yorkshire folk.

    3. Thanks Adrian. Every day is a school day.

  2. How lovely your Hebridean garden looks! And what a fortunate man you are to look out upon such a view. I think that the haar adds an interesting element to the composition.

    1. YP, I'm very fortunate this year in that everything seems to be flowering in great profusion. Hopefully the summer and autumn flowers will perform just as well.

  4. Lucky! I knew that you meant the low cloud but you know I had to look up "haar", not to mention The Minch!
    Love the garden, it's gorgeous.

    1. I've always used the word, Kay, so I'm pretty sure that it's not peculiar to Scotland. However it iis peculiar to communities near the sea.

  5. Gorgeous view!
    Perfect for day dreaming, naps, just looking

    1. Thanks, Maywyn. Unfortunately it's also the weather for painting fences and getting things done outside.

  6. I see that we are sharing very similar weather, for it has been wall to wall sunshine here now for over a week. The trouble is that we get used to it all too quickly and expect it to continue until the New Year :)

    1. It looks like it Heron. Tomorrow is not looking so god for mainland Scotland but so far our forecast looks dry for a while.

  7. All the work and effort you are putting into your garden is certainly paying off, it is lovely. The light looks like mid-afternoon, not like 9 pm!

    1. Meike, I don't think I've had the opportunity to get so many of the little jobs done in the past such as weeding all the small beds. A combination of my available time and weather has produced very satisfying results.

  8. You must spend a lot of time on that garden, Graham. And that view...just stunning!

    1. Frances, I've spent more time this Spring than I have done for quite a few years.

  9. I think the haar provides a great contrast to the rest of the photo - easier to appreciate the sunshine when you can point off into the distance and say "Haar-de-haar-haarrrr!"

  10. A glorious photo of a glorious day....not unlike the one we're having here today.

    It's a clear blue sky day here today...cool temps. It is now 2nd June, which means it's the second day of our winter...so the cooler temps are to be expected...and welcome by me...and my two furry, four-legged mates. :)

    I hope all is well with you, Graham. :)

    1. Thank you, Lee, all is, indeed, well and I have woken, yet again, to blue skies. It means a lot of plant watering butI'm very happy with that.

  11. It's so picturesque! The garden, the weather, the sea.....
    just lovely

  12. Looks like you have a better view than we do right now. Must be lovely and warm there.

    1. Amy, my view is one of the things that drew me to this house all those years ago.

  13. I’m a bit late to this particular party as usual. As one of the Yorkshire folks mentioned at the beginning of the thread I’ve never heard us referred to as DeDas??? Yorkshire Tykes yes but not DeeDas.

    1. DeDas are Sheffield folk as they are always saying "Na den dee, hars da doing."

    2. Beverley, I hadn't heard the term either.

  14. With that view at 21:00hrs who could complain. But I don't understand why the Summer Time change has been so problematical in Scotland. It can't just be the cows can it?

    1. Potty, I was not aware that the Summer Time change in Scotland had been problematic.

  15. I had to look up 'haar' too (although I pretty much guessed the meaning from the context!) As beautiful as the garden and view is in itself, I also think the haar adds an extra interesting touch to the photo (agreeing with Mrs S).

    I though I had already commented here - but maybe it was on FB. I've been using the phone more than the computer lately because of the hot weather.

    1. Monica, when I used the term haar I wondered if many people would not know what it is. I could possibly just have referred to it as a sea mist.

      Delete
  16. Oh, wow, it is so bright that it looks like midday. What a simply lovely view! Wonderful to be able to walk to the window and see that view anytime....
    I didn't know exactly what haar was - but when I saw it was sea mist I thought it might be something to do with hoar frost, which I have always understood is a kind of frozen fog. I wonder if it is!

    1. Jenny, a haar is cold sea fog. I didn't know the origin of the word 'haar' so I looked it up on Wiki here.
