Today is a rest day. We did some shopping in the morning and in the evening Pauline and Allan celebrated their wedding anniversary by buying us dinner – fish and chips with wine and ice-cream. I went jogging to the train station and back while the rest had a good walk along the beach front. Sleeping: Shambley Residence, Millfield Avenue, Stranraer. Temp: min.12 – max.18°C


The beautiful rose flowers.

This picture was taken on 24th May 2014 and you will notice that the rose flowers were not out yet.

And today on 16th June, all the rose flowers were out and so beautiful.

Our ladies admiring the roses.






This is another beautiful garden of the neighbor Jessie.

The backyard vegetable garden ready for harvesting.

Cordyline australis is an evergreen monocotyledon tree with a tufted habit. Its palm-like foliage emerges from the growing tips of the branched trunk in dense rosettes of pale green, waxy, lanceolate leaves. In summer it bears large hanging panicles composed of small, slightly fragrant, pale cream flowers.

Cordyline australis commonly known as the Cabbage Tree, is native to New Zealand and has been naturalised in many countries including the UK.

It was traditionally used by the Maori people as both a source of food and to produce an extremely strong rope.

This are the broad beans grown by Alistair in his back yard garden.

This is raspberry grown by Alistair.

This are neighbors having a chat looking at the gardens.







Dearest Val Allan and Pauline Toh,

Warmest congratulations and sincere best wishes on your Golden Wedding Anniversary. May your beautiful and admirable union be richly blessed and your love grow stronger! Cheers and abundant blessings as you celebrate your 50 Years of Marriage.
