Part two
is a bit shorter, owing to the over-run in Part One. 1983, Maytime I'm guessing from the first two pics

Bluebells at, I think, Kew, though I'd be happy to be corrected by anyone who recognizes the building

Part one is in the late spring of 1983, chronicling the lifestyles of the stoned and whimsical

Ambition
It isn't immediately obvious, but that's a 7g ball of Afghani Bill is waving a lucifer at.
The sharper-sighted among you may note that Bill's fracture has switched to his left hand: the slide was flopped in the scanner

Part Two
probably about Whitsun (end of May) 1983, a trip to Scotland to visit Chip's mother at Drumbuie Cottage, New Mains. The weather was not especially conducive to photography.
First, an establishing shot

Garden Debrief

Image
Ripple
Somewhere in the Solway Firth

Image
Sunny Interval
I could probably work out exactly where this is with a map, but I don't suppose anyone cares if I don't bother

Image
Local Breed

Image
Characteristic Pose
Joan inherited this pose from her mother, the Granule, and passed it on to Chip. All three suffered from Gardener's Twitch

Image
Bonny Bank
Sorry

More from (just) north of the Border tomorrow
