A walk by the River in Scotland

There is a river in the highlands of Scotland carved out of the valley floor. It is a special place and I always relax when I think of it. It rains a great deal here and the land is rich with greens and wildflowers. Here are a few photographs that give you a little flavor of this peaceful valley.

  9. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I have Chives all over my flower borders and so my garden is never short of Bees! Great pictures πŸ™‚

    • Bees are such fun at this time of year with those huge bags of yellow or orange pollen strapped to their sides!
      I love yellowhammers – saw some when I was over in May.

      • My husband and I love Bees and we do all we can to encourage them to visit. The daisies, the clover and even the dandelions get to stay on our lawn until the grass becomes too long and it has to be mowed!

        I originate from a large town in Gloucestershire and had never seen a Yellowhammer or a Turtle Dove until today (yesterday now)! I also spotted a very unusual bird with a crested head but I’ve not been able to identify it yet. Since moving to Essex I’ve seen more wildlife than I ever dared to dream of though, and it’s wonderful!

        I would love to follow your blog, but I rely on following by email due to various commitments. I couldn’t find an option to follow you by email, but I know that doesn’t mean there isn’t one, and I’ve possibly blinked and missed it. I’m always happy to meet fellow nature lovers though!

      • I have put a new email follow link oat the bottom of the right hand column –
        I wonder what the crested headed bird was – what color and size was it?

      • It was small, and a sort of brownish colour with bits of grey. My father-in-law thought it was a female Chaffinch, but it most definitely wasn’t! Too small, for a start. Larger than a Sparrow but smaller than a Robin. Looked on the RSPB site, Google Images, pretty much everywhere else and still can’t identify her! Pretty little thing though πŸ™‚

        And thank you; I’ll head over to click “Follow” now πŸ™‚

  10. I believe I can trace my ancestors to Scotland. One day, I MUST visit! It’s on my list.
