Thought I should take some pictures while I still can! I'm sure in a few years it will be all houses...

Sheep's wool caught up in summer grass.

You wake up one morning and discover the world has put on its summer clothes. Brora turned green overnight. Summer is here :classic_love: This is the River Brora from the bridge. I walk past this every day. Beautiful place.

The fledglings are fluttering about. So far I've had sparrow, dunnock, thrush and starling fledglings. No doubt others will be along soon, like blue tits and other cute wee things. Here's a thrush fledgling on my washing drying thingie this morning. He was watching me wondering what on earth kind of creature I was.

Look what I found on the banks of the River Brora this morning. It's not a shrub or a bush, it's a flowering tree! I don't think it's native to the Highlands. When I find out what tree it is, I'll report back. Beautiful tree.

Still haven't discovered what this tree is yet. It's related to rhododendron, but which one is still a mystery. Here's a snapshot of the whole tree.

And here's the River Brora today, looking upstream to the Rock Pool. This is about 10 minutes walk from my house.

Aren't they beautiful. No idea how this tree came to be there but I suspect someone once planted it to brighten up the village.

The white bluebells are a hybrid cross between the native species and the Spanish species.

The Rhododendron of one of the thousands of garden cultivars. It probably began life as a cutting from someone's garden. And that closes out May rather nicely. Time to fire up a June thread.
