Recently we were reminiscing with pebbles at Sacred Heart and Trianaid Care Homes…
I’ve got one like that I collected on the beach and I keep it on the windowsill here
We collected colourful shells, filled a bottle and then put a light in the top
Remember the shell bus?
When people went on holiday they used to bring her back shells from all over the world
Me and her Granddaughter used to gather the shells for her
A cowrie is a ‘faighdeag’
I remember someone who used to collect pebbles and she had a machine to cut them and polish them up
We never learnt to swim, we were all told to keep away from the water that it wasn’t safe
I like the smooth ones
The rocks at the back of Heisger they’re very unusual
Which one do you think is heavier?
With lime or rhubarb.
Spread it out on the ground, they say you should leave it out for at least one rain shower to wash off the salt and then once it’s dry you collect it.
It’s the best thing for you.
Yes I grew that in the garden
It smells lovely
Canach- leathann that’s what we called it
Ragged robins…they’re my favourite.
Honeysuckle and wild grasses
You can pick that down by the loch on the corner and the smell just hits you first and then you see it.
