Aptly titled blog, I appriciate the fact that the buildings are not all perfect. Great pictures, the staddle stone is my favorite.

So are there really no chickadees in Scotland?

Yes, I like the squiggle in the last picture. The second one down too, the stone is so warm, it reminds me of Iona?

I loved the Paris post too. Paris always amazed me how it just came up trumps; you think, no, it can't really be all that and then it just is. I hope your friend's happy there.

Also that you grnadmother is getting better.

Thanks for your visits to mine.

Oh, I love places like this. They set my imagination to running. And, I feel so very grateful that I don't live in such a cold, drafty place. But, they are romantic, aren't they? Too bad about the graffiti.
