Let sleeping gulls lie

A contented calf sits by the gate into the field by the house, access to Shian and Duill cottages. 

Our wild 'burn garden' is developing nicely beside the house. 

Farmer went to check the cows beyond Haunn this morning so I took advantage and walked through the Haunn field/Coronation Meadow.  Small white, fragrant, northern marsh and lesser butterfly orchids all flowering, along side bluebells, wood sage, wood bitter vetch, heath pea vetch, pignut, eyebright and more.. no better way to start the day!

We went to Tobermory to see a friend who was on Mull for a few hours.  

We also went to a book launch at Tackle and Books, of Lynne Farrell's book on wild flowers of the Isle of Mull, which gives Treshnish a good mention. She signed our book with a lovely inscription about keeping up the good work, so that was very nice!

Thence to the High School for Parents Evening. Farmer was able to talk to another father who does the shearing for us about coming to do the hoggs, so that was a bonus!  Home, and something to eat...

Then I managed to get some flowers in, walking the dog before sunset.

I have often wondered who eats the Burnet Rose.  Now I know.
