A Lady's Garden

I Think They’ve Gone
I’ve noticed a definite decline in midge numbers over the last week or so.
Hopefully, the wee buggers are well knackered by the colder weather and the breezy conditions.
Saw a pair of grouse legging it across the road just as we approached the Isleornsay road end the other day.
They then disappeared into the undergrowth beyond the verge.
It’s not a bird that I see very often these days.
On the same stretch of road we observed a frog hopping across the road near Park Cottage.
Unfortunately, an oncoming vehicle was unable to avoid the extremely unlucky amphibian and he (or she) have now become part of the road surface.
An interesting euphemism ‘lady garden’ for the private part of a lady’s anatomy.
If she was particularly hirsute in that department would it more accurately be known as a ‘lady croft’.
Would she qualify for grant assistance to have it cut once a year?
I suspect it would definitely contain a site of special scientific interest.
