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".

Well, the chances are I've found someone to take over the blog! TLC - no other name given - is moving to Peebles soon and has said he/she might take it on! That would be terrific, as I didn't want to abandon it! It's just as I've said before - I just don't have the time!

Thanks for your comments, TLC. Good Luck with your move to Peebles, and if you want to take on the blog here, I'd be delighted. You can see the website of our local photographic group at http://www.tweeddalephotographic.com for info of what who where when!. See you anon then!

Taken from my garden recently, the parish churxh crown is the main landmark for the town! It's so beautiful. At night thousands of starlings fly in to roost! You should hear the noise!!!
