Dog Days…….. Well Daisies Really

_DO89331qqq

The Dog Daisies in the wildflower meadow are flourishing.  So as the day started to brighten at last, an evening stroll was needed. I did think the time would be just about right to spy some insects amongst the Daisies.   Not much luck on that score, I think they had head for bed early.  But we did catch one short burst of late sunshine.

Few insects but still nice to see so many Dog Daisies.  Ragged Robin is starting to make its mark, but the rich growth from the Daisies has rather swamped the Clovers.

After a rather dull day (again) I feel rather more pleased with my little lot having been able to enjoy a leisurely potter to end the day.

Not sure that tomorrows forecast is any better, so heigh-ho here we go…

Over the Sea to Skye…… well not quite!

Scot-9

The Cuillin Hills across Loch Scavaig from the sea cliff path above Elgol. The path takes you along to Camas Bay, seals and seabirds for companions.  The path continues, then eventually you arrive at Loch Coruisk, right in the heart of the Cuillins. I always find it strange, that this range of Mountains, are referred to on OS Maps as ‘Hills’. They are mighty mountains and tough ascents from any direction.

Although we are already on the Isle of Skye, this approach does feel as if you are arriving over the seas.  🙂

A fantastic wild area of Skye… one of the many places of many in Scotland, that I hope, once these strange times are over, to visit again.  Even though those ‘summits’ are now beyond my physical capabilities, the cliff walk is just fine.  At least I have some great memories.
