Daisies are dominant
Boston Massacre, March 9, 1770, Boston Mass
Nice to have this postcard arrive today as I work on my genealogy. My current focus is on my ancestors who served in the Revolutionary War.
Nice weather today. Their first stop was in Gretna Green where she “married the blacksmith,” whom she found very funny. Beautiful rolling hills, animals – horses, cats, dogs, cows. Fairly good lunch at Dumfries. Saw Burns Mausoleum. Tea at Ayr-Station Hotel Saw Robert Burns birthplace. Saw Loch Doon. Found the monument to Burns entirely out of keeping. Very attractive gardens, more natural than English gardens. In general the Scotch scenery is more natural than the English and less neat, but the cities and houses look dirtierIn Scotland – and the children appear healthier.
She notes that Glasgow is a large busy city with fine .golf links on the edge. Stayed at the St. Enoch Hotel. She noted many men hanging about the street corners. Went window shopping, ate candy, laughed – and people stared at the 3 of them (my mother, Lib, and Lois).
not much to see yet
Seen on the last day of January
I’m lining up the last of the blooms and taking pots inside so as not to lose any to frost. We still have lots of birds and I can keep feeding them. And there are plenty of fallen leaves to collect.
