I took the dog across the bog to the west of Duill lochan this afternoon. The scent of the Bog myrtle was so strong, and it was amazing to see how high the willows are growing. The regeneration there is working so well despite the wet ground. Lovely colours in the mosses and sweet smelling mint in the Black Park as we walked back to the house.
Farmer and family went to Ulva today for lunch at the Boathouse. Last day of the school holidays, and too wet for tractor work. It was wonderful as usual - delicious food and that relaxing sensation of leaving the world behind when we got on the little ferry. There are more photographs here.
