Amazing weather here although unfortunately our usual plague of midgies has now arrived right on time.
Apparently most places have lost a lot of wild flowers due to intensive agriculture but no sign of that here. The sides of the roads are a veritable riot of colour (could be the tangle of the Isles!)
The other plant which is coming through in force at the moment is the bracken. I have to say I am less fond of that as I once had a bad experience where I got lost in a field of head high of it and was panicking to the extent that I thought I would be ending up spending the night there.
