Sat 6th June

Though not forecast, the weather broke down today and out came the midges, so we went inside, not like Simon King the other night in Wales on Springwatch when he had clouds of the blighters around him!
This week there has been quite an increase in wild flowers in bloom, the Thrift, or Sea Pink at the head of Loch Gruinart is quite impressive, some of the Orchids are starting to show, Foxgloves too, as well as Ragged Robin along some of the verges of our roads. The Machir is coming out, a tremendous sight in itself, often seen in many photographs. On the other hand some of the Gorse is getting past, as are the Bluebells in the woods.
