well I'm making the most of this fantastic weather - and I'm trying to take as many pics as possible. People seem to think that Aberdeen - the Granite City, is a pretty miserable, grey and rainy place to stay and it really isn't. We have some of the most spectacular scenery in and around Aberdeen city and shire and I will always call this home - hmmm think I must have a hormone imbalance of some description, seem to be awfully emotional lately.
Anyway, I was off out to Torphins yesterday which is where I was born and bred, my parents still live out there as does my brother and his family, so I thought I'd share some pics of another beautiful day...
Faith having a sneaky wee grin to herself cos she managed to con another biscuit out of Nana
Playing nicely - lasted all of 5 minutes
Clachnaben off in the distance
another (not so zoomed in) pic of Clachnaben
Looking towards Craigmyle
Isn't this just a fab view that my mum and dad get from their house? if you double click on the pic you can see a tower on top of the wee hill in the centre of the photo - that is Scolty Tower near Banchory, which was built in memory of General William Burnett who fought alongside Wellington in the Napoleonic Wars.
I just liked the variety of trees behind their house - some Scots Pine...
and some Silver Birch.
On the lounger
Pepsi enjoying the fresh country air
Scott having a break from terrorising the girls
And on the way home I just had to stop and take a pic of these new wee lambies
