Monday Monday


Good Evening, have been out and about today we went up to Perth. What a difference a week makes, the trees are turning into all the lovely warm colours of Autumn. We did a bit of shopping spent too much, drank too many coffees but had a lovely day just the same. I bought a new Sudoku puzzle book so that will keep me busy, a new calendar and desk diary for next year (matching) to keep all our important appointments in haha and a new peg bag how exciting . On the way back to the car we strolled through Greyfriers Cemetary in Perth it was originally started by Franciscan Monks in the 13th century. There are some very old headstones there some even with the scull and crossbones carved on them. You will notice that the grass is very long in places this is deliberate as it is grown as a meadow to encourage bees, butterflies etc and gets cut down later in the year when all the seeds are ready. The big Sycamore trees were looking superb today they looked a lot brighter than they look in the photo's. I think that's about it for tonight off to watch the second half of Corrie. till next time. love

Joan.

It looks like you had a beautiful day to be out and about. It seems I can never get out shopping without spending too much. Everything costs more these day.
The pictures are beautiful.

I've just started doing Sudoku puzzles. It took me a while to get into the hang of doing them. Our trees aren't quite as lovely as they should be this year. They say because it's been so dry. I enjoyed your pictures. xx
