photo update

Kilcreggan looking over to Greenock on the River Clyde(photo not taken last night but showing equally idyllic conditions) a hard paddle back then. . . .
photograph taken late evening sunday, as the sun hit the tree you could see the clouds building up behind the hills. also showing the 'rhubarb bed' edged in paving stones, just at the moment the rhubarb is about 6inches across, it'll grow!

rhubarb is one thing that thrives in our severe climate. mine is close to 3 feet high already! when the kids were small they liked to pick the biggest ones and use them as umbrellas.

Claire, it's so beautiful, in both photos. You've got the artist eye and better yet, the gumption to carry it through! I've tried rhubarb several times in my own yard without success. Planted it in my neighbors a year or two ago and when I peeked over the fence a couple days ago, I saw it's surviving nicely despite total neglect... And I mean, total neglect... Go figure?!

Unfortunately she doesn't want to give it up now that it's there. But would you?!? Since it was meant as a gift at the time of planting, it was very rude of me to inquire if I could have it back; I know, I know! ;-) One day perhaps I'll get a start of it, if it continues to survive.

How lucky you are to live amidst all this beauty.

You lucky, I have no rhubarb. And I eat it often in a cake.
Oh, always I look at your photos I think:Next year you have to go to scotland!

The light in that second photo is really wonderful. How many rhubarb plants did you set out?

I have only put out one clump of rhubarb, cut off the edge of a big clump. I doubt there will be any to eat this year but look forward to it growing next year.
