Our little piece of beautiful Orkney

We are well into July now and it has been excellent weather for growing things, mostly mild with enough rainfall, but a bit too windy on the whole. Today is bright sunny and warm and blowing a hoolie!!!!!!!

However yesterday was fantastic, bit too hot for poor Michael working away. We had lots of people by, family, friends and customers. In-between I had a wander about with my camera, so here is a snap shot around our little piece of beautiful Orkney.

Hope you are all having a fantastic summer, long may it continue.
