She's lovely but I swear I married a reptile when she asks for fire stuff in August:

A reptile that encouraged you to burn beech, to boot. (Always wanted to use that little phrase.)

It's been a pleasant day up here for a change, as was yesterday(ish) - up to 18C according to the car and plenty of sunshine.

Well high summer is over here as the swifts left yesterday after a fairly good breeding season with just four pairs arriving in the house and around 24 leaving.

With the Nairn games on Saturday winter arrives on Sunday according to some of the locals a saying I have heard many times over the years. With  the schools going back next week it just adds to the feeling that autumn is on its way..

Lovely late summer day.

Max of 17c with plenty of sunshine, though got a bit breezy in the early afternoon before winds fell light in the evening.

Nice sunset to round the day off. 

Continuing the ornithological theme, plenty of House Martins soaring above the fields this evening - they also seem to have had a good breeding season after a poor start (plenty of nests from last year were not reoccupied).  Strangely, Swallows and Swifts are pretty uncommon in the immediate area round here.

It was just a little beech I found at the side of the road, picked it up and bundled it in the boot. Took it home, cut it up. 

This is wrong 😂

There'll be a knock at the door soon :oldlaugh:

Supposed to be raining this morning but unless my eyes are lying, the ground is dry.

That wood be my luck, tree police officers turning up to arrest me for crimes against comedy.

It's supposed to be raining here but it's more damp than wet:

Really not been too bad here this morning. Bit of light rain early on and it's breezy but been dry for a while and it's slowly brightening up. Hopefully clear through the borders early afternoon so I can get my tent pitched dry! Fingers crossed!

Somewhere to keep an eye on your illicit arboriculture. Bring back the birch!

Looks kind of er quaint? end of the road? might be haunted? distant banjos?

(with apologies to any Tarbraxers)

And what happened to today's deluge? We got one very short, light showers. Nice and warm and was sunny mostly.

Not the brightest of afternoons to take Finn to his first beach - Nith estuary at Carsethorn. Stopped raining around 13.30 though, so dry.

The rain has just arrived and it's monsoon in nature (enough to get the kids to wake up and wonder what is going on).

Gutters are overflowing and its balmy (14c), but alas no thunder and lightening.

Some healthy showers just passed through here in quite a narrow band. Lightning plotted north of Aberdeen but not in the city itself.

Sorry for the late response, but I've been busy appeasing our new dolphin overlords.

Literally constant thunder rolling off that cell... I've got a good view of it but haven't seen any lightning and the worst is probably just going to slide past here.
