St Andrew's Day - allotment style


Even allotments fly the Scottish flag, albeit in a tattered state. A bit like the rest of allotment life - determined but a bit ragged round the edges.

A national holiday today, and of course more fireworks this evening. That's two lots in seven days here. We could perhaps have a rest from pyrotechnics until Hogmanay..

Hogmanay, I am going to have to look that one up. We don't use that word here in Iowa. I don't think I have ever seen the Scottish flag before. I am learning a lot from this blogging thing. Have a good celebration.

Linda love the bare trees with that wicked looking sky in the background. I also clicked and saw your rainbow picture - very nice.

There's something special about this photo of the Scottish flag. I'd like to know more about the history of your flag.

The swing flag in the winds is a nice shot.
