Back from my holiday and blog break. The weather has been good and bad, but some days warm enough to kick of my shoes and feel the warm grass underfoot!.
I have sketched a little.
And been out and about with my camera.
I also have been in the Scottish borders visiting my Daughter who has re-located there. This is not her new house by the way!
It is the beautiful Floors castle situated on the outskirts of the lovely border town of Kelso.
It is apparently the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland. The home of the Roxburghe family and built in 1721.
It has beautiful gardens too. Formal walled gardens and lovely woodland paths to explore.
The landscape of the Scottish borders is very different to the highland mountain scenery. Soft rolling hills and gentle flowing rivers.
The whole landscape is lush and green.

Hope to spend the next few weeks catching up on painting and checking what my favourite bloggers have been up to.
