Hi all 😁 This gallery of vivid anthuriums is my entry for Brashley’s Floral Friday.
Hi all 😁 This bright torch lily is my entry for Cee’s FOTD.
Hi all 😁 and welcome to December’s project: Things in Scots. This month I am collaborating with my wife, Susan (☜ follow this link to see and hear her post), and we’ll be posting mostly daily — Things in Scots (great title eh? 😂).
Harebell (bluebell) is today’s Things in Scots; also known as blawort, blaver and my favourite — gowks thimmles!
All the Scots words for these posts are taken from The Concise English-Scots Dictionary, by the Scottish National Dictionary Association. The words chosen will be the generally accepted term, but as in all languages there are regional variations, as well as sub-species variations. For example, an owl is generally known as a hoolet in Scots, but an ool in Shetland & the NE. A barn owl is a white hoolet & a long eared owl, a hornnie hoolet.
As we do these posts, we’re learning as well; so we apologise in advance for any mistakes ☺️
If any of you out there have a burning desire to know the Scots word for anything 🤔, please let us know!
Hae a guid day 😁
Daily Flower 💐 — Yellow Roses
Hi all 😁 My earlier post for Cee’s Flower of the Day was of a yellow petunia, which was part of the Arbroath in Bloom display. The display consists in part of bikes that have been turned into planters and dotted around the town and harbour. The bikes have been painted, had baskets/panniers added to them which have then been used as planters. I had never seen this before so thought I’d show a few more images of them.Continue reading “Arbroath in Bloom”
