Jeana and the volunteer groups of South Queensferry are popping the champagne corks today having found out that they’ve won a silver medal in the Beautiful Scotland Awards. The award is testimony to the hard work that they (and I ) put in all year round.
Well done guys.

We’ve all been busy at Suntrap getting ready for the annual open day next Sunday. If you’d like to visit it’s on between 10.30 am and 4.30 pm.
There will be demonstrations on how to plant up hanging baskets and containers. Of course, if you can’t be bothered with the hassle of doing it yourself you could simply buy one. There’s also a demonstration from the Scottish Bonsai Association who house their collection of bonsai’s at Suntrap.
You might simply just fancy a stroll through the grounds looking at the beautiful plants and statues.
Or have a wee seat with a cup of tea and some home baking and watch the world go by. Whatever, we’d love to see you there. If you would like more information have a look at the blog.

Jeana works at Suntrap Garden near Ratho.
So, I’d like to suggest that you make a date in your diary for a trip out for its Open Day on 25th May, 10.30 am – 4.30 pm. If the weather stays like it is just now it’ll be a fantastic day out in a beautiful spot with money going to charity.
Here’s the link.

Jeana and I went to this, the annual snowdrop day in the grounds of Dalmeny House.
Rather a fine day and got some nice snaps.
