Away . . .
Hello! We have been away soaking up some vitamin D, and enjoying the patterns and colours of lovely Portugal. There, everything was bright blue and red-brown. The contrast between those shades and the familiar green of home has seemed very striking to me over the past couple of days. There we ate tasty sardines, swam in the sea, enjoyed hot sunshine and cool evening walks along the cliffs. Here, my tatties are thriving, my potting-shed cucumber has fruited (and fruits have been eaten), everything is lush and flourishing and yesterday we saw an osprey hunting on our loch from the living room window. We ran outside for a better view and, looking up into the evening sky, saw it circling just above us with a still very-alive fish squirming in its talons. A remarkable sight.
Bruce has been away too. Perhaps he’ll tell you about that later.
