The photo above was taken by my neighbour, Sue Anderson, of Garson. It's a really beautiful, ethereal photo and somewhere in there, I swear, is a Unicorn!
My favourite season is Spring. It holds so much promise and hope for the year to come. I eagerly search for the first signs - it's much later in Orkney than further South in the UK. So it was a delight to spot these about to flower among the willow trees outside my house (dwarf narcissus).
And the willow trees have the gorgeous fluffy buds that protect the delicate leaves within....
And of course Button wants to get in on the act!
And she enjoys a little sunbathing on the flagstones outside the front door. Still a bit on the cool side at this time of year, but she doesn't seem to mind.
And after a wander in the warming sun, nothing like coming home to tea and home baked scones!
