  1. Sun breaking through here already. I don't normally get that excited about weather not involving snaw or hoolies, but this recent spell is great.
  2. Another lovely day here, although a tad chilly in the wind when the sun went behind the clouds when I was out cycling in a t-shirt earlier. Borders are turning that deep, rich green of late spring/early summer. My favourite time of year after winter. Phone snap from a previously unexplored route up onto the southern upland way. Light and camera both a bit crap! EDIT. Also shot looking south to Black Hill. Gorse in full, fragrant bloom.

    That doesn't seem to have been the problem, but weirdly, the moment you responded to me, the problem went away. Thanks.

    Recently, copying and pasting links directly into the comment box doesn't work for me. They don't register as links, just as plain text - I have to use the link button to make them work as links. Same for e.g. twitter tweet links. They don't automatically turn to embedded tweets any more. Image links are playing up too; I get thumbnails only when pasting in a link to an online image rather than the thumbnail which is linking to the actual big version. Been like this for a week or two. Seems to be just me as others are embedding tweets ok. I tried some different browers and signing in / out etc, but couldn't solve it. Did I maybe press something on forum settings? Anyone any ideas? Would be appreciated thanks.
  5. Frost overnight here. Was -0.7 C an hour ago. Not sure the garden appreciated it! Now 0.9 C and sunny.
  6. Full size if clicking the above doesn't work:
  7. Yesterday was lovely and topped out in the high teens. After getting the days domestic tasks done, managed a late afternoon cycle up the back along the southern upland way (phone snaps below) followed by a cold beer in the gairden. Gorse is coming into bloom, giving a lovely scent in the breeze. Today cooler and wet at times; managed to give the lawn its first cut in between occasional showers. And so the mowing season begins. Currently pishin doon.
  8. Lovely warm spring day here with hazy sunshine. few snaps from dug walk. Deer have been really common around here of late. Getting photos is tricky though as they of course always keep a respectable distance. @Hairy Celt Enjoy the summer rubber. Had my first outing on mine yesterday.
  9. Glorious oot. Sun shining, birds tweeting in the trees. Daffs in bloom. Perfect weather for changing to summer tyres. However, that's the lawn coming back to life too. Won't be long before the mowing season begins anew.
  10. Aye, right pea souper out there. On the way back from Hillend it was thick haar all the way to this side of Soutra. Cold and dank too; decided tae keep the bunnet oan when skiing. --- Winter tyres coming off this weekend. Finally.
  11. Paused briefly on the way hame tae take a picture and make a wee video. A68 fala aboot 3 pm. It was mainly wet and slushy this side of Soutra apart from above 250m or so, but that's all changed in the last hour. Absolute white out with huge fat flakes and accumulating quickly now at fort SS.

  12. Positively alpine. An inch+ o' snaw at Hillend now.
  13. For Edinburgh folks... Just arrived at Hillend ski centre. Started lying at the reception here.
  14. Finally starting to lie here. Weirdly, the trees are all white now, but the warmer ground has been putting up more of a fight. T has fallen from 3 C to 1.6 C over the past few hours.
