Posties Delight...

By Scottishlandscapes  
…the Postbox in the village of Torrin on the road to Elgol, the blaze of colour picked out by the sunlight stopped me in my tracks.

My delight, too. I love them, and they seem so Scottish to me, cause they grow all over the place. Tried to plant them in my garden - but as it seems they need a peaty, boggy soil. Not clay.
I wish I was a postbox!

Had loads of those in my garden where I used to live ( not in Scotland! )....the ground wasn't peaty or boggy, it was basically just........muck! Grin

Tasty image, lovely light.

Johanna you would get postcards everyday but they would be for other people.
It's maybe just the clay they don't like.

A floral delight and an eye catching post box made more beautiful by that spotlight from the days sun.

I cannot be certain but I think that is a bank of Montbretia, Dougie, and it makes a beautiful edging to this section of the village roadway.
