I would like to introduce myself I am Clattnow on here. I reside with my husband in a little cottage in Scotland. We love hill walking, flat walking, growing cornflowers and seeds in our cottage garden. We like reading books by Ian Rankin, also animal stories like a Street Cat Called Bob. I love listening to 60s style music. I like films about animals like The Horse Whisperer.

Unfortunately I do not eat during the day only at tea-time. I love fitness tv. and my treadmill. I am rather thin. My husband is rather worried though I think he causes my pains as he is rather moody at times. He goes off by himself and leaves me for hours by myself.

Hi :) I'm also new to the forum. Your cottage sounds lovely, with all the cornflowers :) What other flowers do you grow in your garden? I'm not a gardener myself, but I enjoy taking photographs of flowers and nature so I really do appreciate lovely gardens. Maybe one day, when I have my own place, I can make my own garden as pretty as some that I've seen!

Hello Bunnie,

A nice name to have on the forum. I grow poppies, sea pinks, nasturtiums and campanulas known as bell flowers. Also a yellow broom bush along with a apple tree which showers its pink blossoms into our windows. Yes it is a pretty patio garden. I am glad you like lovely gardens I agree they are good very therapeutic. I also like feeding the birds. We did have a naughty bunny this year that enjoyed munching some of the plants, one was a lavender plant. I am sure you will have a nice garden one day. Gardening is good to do. What type of flowers do you like and why? Do you like Fengi shui as that is another art I like.

haha thankyou :) I adore rabbits so I couldn't think of a better name :D

Wow, your garden sounds so picturesque! I can just imagine the apple blossom petals blowing into your windows :D We also have a apple blossom tree in our garden.

I still live at home with my family and my brother likes gardening so we also have some lovely flowers in our garden right now. We have cosmos, petunias, marigolds, forget-me-nots, bleeding hearts, gazanias and many more.We have a few kinds of lily that haven't opened yet. I love sitting in the garden surrounded by my own pet rabbits and flowers.

My favourite flowers are sweet peas :) I also love bluebells, clematis & primroses. I actually don't know much about Fengi shui, but it would be interesting to hear more about it.



^ this was a lovely iris we had a couple of weeks ago :)

Thank you Bunny gurrl,

What a most beautiful flower and great photo. Did you take it yourself? Your garden sounds wonderful and most colourful. I too would enjoy it with your pet rabbits. May I ask their names? Are they special rabbits? I owned a rabbit called Lopsy. He was brown. Like a wild rabbit.

Fengi shui is an art to make gardens and houses pretty and to bring in happiness. You can hang chimes in your garden, along with crystals and herons if facing south, if facing west a black tortoise, or if facing south west or south east a pair of mandarin ducks. My husband loves ducks. You can also put in a wooden bird table. Flowers and plants are always Fengi Shui. They bring luck, hope and good fortune. Which your garden will bring you. In the home you paint the rooms according to the way the house is facing. Hang windchimes at the front door to hear the tinkle of the bells. Crystals can be hung in the windows to paint rainbows on the walls. It is all to do with making a place feel happy and cheerful. Clear out the clutter and keeping things neat, clean and organised. Hope this helps.

I see you live at home with your family. Perhaps you can tell me about them? I live with my husband and used to own a little spaniel unfortunately she died. I lived with my family until I was 38 years old so I do understand. You must have a good family. Well thank you once again for your reply. Great hearing from you. Clattnow

Hi :) Sorry for my delayed reply, I've not been able to get online for the last couple of days.

Yes, I took the photograph myself :) I love wildlife & flower photography, so I have many more photos I can share if you like. Your rabbit Lopsy sounds lovely, I do love rabbits with the wild agouti colour :) I have many rabbits, all of them are lionheads (the very fluffy breed) apart from one, who is a lionhead X mini rex. I have 4 girls: Apple, Missy, Blossom & Moomin, and 7 boys: Topaz, Ben, Jacob, Malakai, Poko, Abe and Clyde. My oldest is Malakai who will be turning 8 this October!

Fengi shui sounds lovely :) I'll have to have a good read up on it because I think it's something I'd probably enjoy. I already have a thing for windchimes and crystals! If it was my own garden and not my families, I would fill it with pretty things. At the moment, I just have a little mushroom windchime by our apple blossom tree. I currently live with my sister, brother (although I have 3 brothers who don't live at home anymore) and our mum, and my 12 pets. Sorry to hear about your spaniel *hugs*

Hope all is well :)

Hi there That looks great, milk and one tsp of vanillin please. I like Sainsburys red label of Marks and Spencers tea bags. Would you like some biscuits to go with your tea? They say the tannin in the tea helps us to feel calmer. Vanillin is good for our heads and stomachs the vanillin comes from the vanillia pod. Also Green tea is good as well. Lemon tea is nice too.
