Hi all 😁
Today marks the 700th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath, a letter sent to the Pope on 6th April 1320, declaring Scotland as an independant nation.
Many of us were intending visiting this historic town today to mark the occasion & on Saturday to march for independance for Scotland. With the current global pandemic, all plans were rightly shelved and the march postponed.
I therefore bring Arbroath to you, so we can all be there in spirit, if not in body.

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.

Whilst taking some photos of the fantastic floral display, mostly dahlias, around the Declaration Of Arbroath statue in Arbroath, a couple of butterflies kept getting in on the action.
