Scone Palace

The weather finally broke yesterday after a superb spell of sunny, but cold days, who says it always rains in Scotland! Just 20 minutes down the road is Scone Palace where we went today as their was an antique fair on and the grounds were open with the snowdrops in full bloom. The Palace opens for the season on the 21st March.

Spring has Sprung, maybe!!

Another lovely day with the sun streaming down, it's been nice for a few days now and should continue to the end of the week. Ventured out into the front garden today to do some tidying up and pruning, but with all the spring bulbs pushing their way through you have to tread carefully, but still managed to get a bit done.

Forgot to say, the other week, I had my overnight visit from the Inspector for Quality and Standards for Visit Scotland and the grading report says "A well presented property offering a high standard of accommodation, where attention to detail is evident. Warm friendly welcome, a comfortble stay with high standards of hospitality, excellent breakfast in both quality and presentation", so I am happy to report we are still a 4 star Bed and Breakfast.
