I'm finally finding time to sort through the many photos taken over the last few months, and catch up (hopefully!) on some blog entries.
Last Easter I went to Arran for a few days.
One of the places I visited was Brodick Castle - it's a great place to visit in the springtime.
This pheasant posed beautifully for me.
I spotted this plant on a visit to a friend in Balloch, growing wild on the shores of Loch Lomond. We weren't sure what it was, although it looked very alien growing there. Then I spotted it beside the pond at Brodick Castle. I think it's skunk cabbage. It didn't seem to smell of skunks, but then again, I wasn't that close...
It's a great time of year in the castle gardens, with the rhododendrons and azaleas in flower.
I loved the magnolia too.
The daffodils were also in full bloom.
Back in Lamlash and the sun was shining on Holy Isle.
A good time of year.
