This blog is to introduce you to my town - Peebles, in the Scottish Borders - just one photo at a time, with perhaps a little description and maybe some history thrown in. I hope you will find it interesting. The title comes from a historical comment made by someone who preferred Peebles to the great and famous cities. I know how they felt. It's always a pleasure to return here however long you've been away.

If you want to make a comment, ask me a question, or merely just want to say "hello, I've dropped in", you can do that by using the comment section below each entry. (Just click on the word COMMENT and follow instructions. ) I'd love to know what you think of what you see of my town.

I don't have an expensive elaborate camera so the photo quality may not be brilliant, but I'd like to think my pics will please you. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks to Mary H for the lovely designs I used for my background, and thanks too to all of you who have chosen to support my blog by becoming "followers".

After the flood

I should have shown you this one the day after the flood. All that area of green grass was covered in water. The road was also under water, so we had quite a large lake out there.

One misty moisty morning....

Not exactly particular to Peebles, I just loved this iron fence covered in dewy spiders' webs one misty morning recently.

Autumn in Peebles 3

Just a bit out of town, at Eddleston, the sun began to shine through the mist, though not for long I have to say.

Autumn in Peebles 2

Not too good a day, huh? The mist didn't lift all day in town, though just a few miles up the road things were slightly better! Watch this space!

Autumn in Peebles 1

Well, I really do have to apologise for going AWOL for so long. However I am back and hopefully will be able to post regularly now.

So, two pictures today to make up for my absence. This first one is on a beautiful late October evening soon after I came back from my holidays. The Parish Church of course you will recognise from previous postings, but it was because of the sky that I had to take this view again.

Then there was the view from the bridge just around the corner. What is it they say? "Red sky at night, shepherds' delight..." Hmmm! If that's supposed to be a sign of good weather next day, then just wait till next time to see how it turned out!!!
