Wilma's Beautiful Garden

I've been in Scotland since Thursday
and have been busy every day.
Today we're taking it easy and I decided
to take some photos of my
mum's cute country garden.

It's the perfect place to sit and knit!
I'm off to do that right now.

Bonnie Scotland

Only 5 days to go! I leave Wednesday 10pm from Newark Airport. I can't wait, and my kids are so excited to be visiting gran and her adorable wee scottie, Meg.

The first thing we do when we arrive at my mum's cottage is have a big fry-up in her beautiful country kitchen; scottish sausages, black pudding, bacon, eggs, tatty scones, mushrooms, and lots of cups of tea. My mum always has a big glass jar full of home-made fairycakes for afterwards. My mouth is watering just thinking of the feast! My diet will definitely have to go out the window.

After my nap we usually go for a walk. My mum lives in a rural area with fantastic hikes and great views right outside her door. I love all the sheep and their constant m-a-a-a-a-ba-a-a-ing (although you have to watch where you put your feet!)

My favorite part of going to Scotland is the peaceful walks every day. My kids love it too. Walks usually include a wee seat with our knitting while the kids play in a field.

I can't wait!
