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".

Priorsford Bridge in the floods of 1984

Known variously as Evelyn, Ev and Evee. I retired from work about four years ago! Where has the time gone? Thought there would be lots more time for travelling, meeting up with friends and relatives, digital scrapbooking, blogging, lacemaking and all my new hobbies, but there just aren't enough hours in the day!
Continually continuing with home and garden improvements, and maybe the occasional visit here and there.
